Pumpkins, Candies, and taking it easy
We had a very busy weekend!
We spent Saturday morning at the Pumpkin Festival and had a lot of fun with our friends. Fuss had her first experience with a pumpkin patch and first pony ride (she loved both) and we ate carnival food (though I never did get my nachos) and looked at crafts and watched cloggers (sort of) and had a genuine good time.
We drove home (she fell asleep) and later we went to the city's Halloween Trick or Treat event with our best friends. Their sons were Optimus Prime and a green power ranger, while Fuss was the most adorable Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz you've ever seen. (Pictures to come, I hope)
She took a slightly less than usual length nap, but did pretty well. When we were done Trick or Treating, the boys went and played on the bounce houses (you had to pay for that part of the event, and it was overkill since she could only jump on 2 of them, so we skipped it) so we went to the playground we she had a fabulous time sliding down the slide over and over again.
We all went out to dinner after and despite the crazy service (the waitress was frazzled - not sure what the deal was, but she was very absentee) we had a good time and everyone was well behaved (surprising - none of the kids are exactly known for their wonderful behavior in restaurants).
We were all very tired at the end of the day and she went to bed easily.
This morning, though, I woke up to a screwed up clock (an auto-DST set bought several years ago before they moved the weeks around) and a barking demon-dog (mom's) and after some early morning fun with Daddy Fuss, I discovered that I was spotting (which continued into the day). I've mostly taken it easy today because of that, and it seems to have stopped. Hopefully, it won't start again, especially before my appointment on Tuesday to confirm that everything was good.
