The weather looks like it's getting cooler so I'm all excited about playing outside this week as much as possible!

So Wednesday... have we checked out Shiloh Park in Morrisville before? If so, I don't remember it How about we try it out this week?


Can't wait to see you all!

Sounds good to me--we plan on coming again! We're only about 15mins from that park, so that would be awesome.

It was so nice having some adult interaction, especially with like-minded mamas!

Charlotte--let me know how it goes! I don't have much experience with the freeze dried variety, but I should have enough grains for you + Miriam, if you want to try that route.

Charlotte, I would loooove some apples. Especially now that I finally paid off my blueberry debt.

Are there any local apple picking places? I'd love to get a ton and make a bunch of applesauce.

Looking forward to seeing you all Wednesday, and now I'm off to deal with this ginormous pumpkin on my table

Speaking of carriers, if anyone has any MTs or SSC's I can just try on during playgroup, I am looking to "upgrade" from my Ergo, and am a little overwhelmed by the choices! I wasn't much of a MT lover with DS (had a mom tai and a freehand), and the Ergo has always been our workhorse, so I think I might prefer a SSC?

...thanks

Anyone else hitting story time at B&N tomorrow? I'm guessing obxbound will be there. K was already excited about it tonight, singing "Twinkle" and "head........toes. Eyes. Nose." I love this age.

So when/where is this? We have been looking for a good storytime...but havent really been looking good enough to find one. We would love to check it out, if the ages are right.

We will almost definitely be there on Wednesday.

We won't be there this week. We are reallyyyy low on income lately because Dan is having surgery on a hernia and the stupid worker's comp denied the claim, no good! So I can't waste gas unless totally neccessary, and Morrisville is a LOOONG drive for us. Hopefully I will see you all again soon! We may go to Durant Nature Park in Raleigh on Thursday morning at 10am for their "Wee Walkers" program. It's a free 1 hour trek through the nature park, pretty neat! So if anyone would like to join us that would be great.

Right on April!
DH is off tomorrow and he wants to get an early start on our quest to find the best deal on bamboo flooring. Hopefully I get to squeeze in a visit to the chiropractor cause ...well I need some adjustment.

Have fun. I will miss you all. Lets have a get together on the weekend soon.

Funny you should mention the Library story time, April. I went on Ivan's first field trip for Kindergarten last week. It was to our local library. I was so impressed with the librarian! I had already planned on taking Matilda to the story time there. It happens to be on playgroup day at playgroup time. We will not be joining playgroup anymore because it is just too far away from us b/c of Matilda's nap time now that Ivan is in school. However, I would love to go in the nature walk on Thursdays that Caden's Mom mentioned. Hope to see you all there

I have been to several library's storytimes, and my favorite by far is the Athens Drive one at 10 am on Thursday mornings. Carrie Ann is AWESOME, she constantly interacts with the children, adapts her approach in an age-appropriate way based on the mix of kids there, and plans a related craft after each reading.

Happy wife to DH superhero.gifand mama to DS signcirc1.gif11/05 and DD energy.gif8/07.

It is 9:46 and we are still home. I keep asking Rosti if he wants to go to the park, see the children, go on the swings and slide, etc. Yes he does, but not enough to make it worth putting clothes on. Maybe if he thinks about it a little longer.

I have an orange sippy cup with a purple top that someone forgot. I know I saw one of the kiddos in our group drinking from it - but can't remember who!
