Week of 10/23 in Pictures

This was our busiest week yet, but we knew it was coming and the things should settle down from here on out. Hopefully :) The week was filled with projects (Alan took the day off to work on some things around here), lots of doctor appointments for me that all seemed to happen this week, riding lessons, girl scouts, parent teacher conference and a big storm that ruined George's fun.

On Sunday the kids went and got some pumpkins
 with Nana and Grampy

 Caroline had her last lesson with
her instructor as she is selling the stables 
and moving south. Caroline has come a 
long way and we'll all miss Miss Theresa. 
She gave each kid one of her Briar horses 
last week and gifted Caroline the 
pink helmet she always wears during her

 Friday morning we lost power after we woke up. 
We got Caroline ready and on the bus by candle light
and then George made a block tv and some snacks. 
After some snuggling and watching You Tube on my phone
the power came back on but the rain and wind 
were still pretty bad so we stayed home. 
But, that meant we missed the library costume parade :(

 A little Halloween movie night to end the week :)

Week of 10/16 in Pictures

Another crazy week for the Lovejoy household. I think we're getting used to this being our life now, well not used to, but accepting it :) It was crazy with a little bit of "nothing going right" but we made it to the weekend! It started off with a busy weekend going to a housewarming party and then on Sunday we headed to Caroline's first 1k and she did awesome. We're so proud of her. Afterwards, we headed to Cole's 3rd birthday party. As the week started we had all sorts of goings on happening, field trips, play dates, board meetings, riding lessons, dentist appointments, galore! The next couple of weeks will be more of the same and then it should calm down, at least a little bit :)

 Some pre-race warm up :P

 So proud of herself!

 Hanging out with the cousins
Apparently, we need a bigger sandbox!

 Waiting for the bus to arrive

 Caroline's home for some fun! 
Sadly, I had to interupt this as we 
needed to go to the dentist for 

 George's turn at the dentist!

 Had ot go up to Portland
to run some Daisy Scout 
errands for Caroline
so we treated ourselves
at the mall :)

 Sticker man!

 Friday George was pooped and woke 
up from his nap grumpy. 
Caroline came home with a headache. 
Thankfully, the weekend was here 
and we had NO plans!

Apple Picking!

So, we got around to apple picking kind of late. Between the trip to South Carolina and then the rain over Columbus Day weekend we're just glad we got some. Before we left for SC, Alan and Caroline had picked up a bag of apples with some donuts which was a good thing. When we arrived to our usual orchard, Giles, they were already closed. Luckily, we saw a sign just down the road and discovered Lakeview orchards. It was great and quiet and they had plenty of apples and a lot of different varieties. We even found one that was softer, Paula Red, that even Caroline could eat while missing 5 teeth :) Now, for pumpkins, I think we'll be hitting up a farm stand since we wont be picking our own this year.

Kennebunk Fire Station Open House

Thursday night was the annual fire station open house and something we'd never miss if we could help it. So as soon as Alan got home we loaded up the kids and headed out.

 Full house in the smoke house
Caroline met up with her friend Cam from school and his younger brother.

 The fire extinguisher simulator was new
and pretty cool.

 This was George at the library story hour the 
following day, but I figured I'd add it with these pictures. 
How cute?!?!?!

Week of 10/9 in Pictures

So, I'm just about caught up with all of the pictures! Just a couple of posts about specific things we did last week and I'm good. Phew!

Last week was busy, but fun. The usual things like riding lessons, doctor appointments, library story time, and we signed Caroline up for Girl Scouts! Here are a few cute and fun pictures from the week and then since they include a lot of pictures, I'll post about the Fire Station Open House and Apple Picking separately!
