Our Labor Day Weekend

So we had plans to go out of town...take a little trip to San Diego or Santa Barbara...however we decided against it last minute due to the expense. We figured we would have a relaxing, fun weekend at home doing whatever we felt like, whenever we felt like it. It was a success! Friday morning while I was working, Troy brought Lucy to my work as a surprise. It was so nice of him@ Every time he does this type of thing I am shocked because it takes SO long to come to my work, and it is completely out of the way, yet he does it anyway! My kids ( of course ) loved Troy and Lucy. Whenever Troy comes for the first time during the school year and meets my kids we do a "hot seat." He sits in front of the class and they get to ask him whatever they want for 5 minutes. The best questions this year were, " Do you like pink? ( Troy was wearing a pink shirt that day ) Do you like Star Wars? Do you like football...baseball....basketball? Do you like the Angels like Mrs. Sherman does? Who is your favorite player? Do you like Greek Mythology?" Yes, random questions, but so cute! I love my class this year....well I always love them!

Friday night we went on a date night. My mom came over and watched Lucy. Before we left, we went to the sno cone place again and my mom and Lucy shared one. I caught them and took some pictures.

Troy and I went to Simply Fondue ( a fondue place right by our house---his choice ) and then we went and saw Halloween 2 ( my choice! ) Both were super fun! Since it was our first time doing the fondue thing, I had to document most of the night. I didn't get the salads in, but I got the rest!
I am on a pepperjack kick right now, so we had pepperjack cheese fondue and it was AMAZING. Especially with the apples and the cranberry walnut bread.
Our meats and vegetables.

Stuffed jalapenos and mushrooms that we dipped in batter and fried. The mushrooms were AMAZING.
The chocolate and items to dip!

Caution: the following pictures are not flattering but are candid. What the heck!

Saturday we went to Huntington Beach Dog Beach and took Ellie for the first time. It was a lot of fun. Ellie loved playing with the dogs ( did not enjoy nor go near the water ) and Lucy LOVED the water and the waves!

Sunday we went to the Grove in Los Angeles. We had been wanting to go FOREVER and when we got there, we wondered why we had wanted to go for so long. It is fun, but not as fun when you have a little one with you that can't sit for long in a lot of different stores. It still was a good trip though. We had dinner at Wood Ranch. The picture below is of Lucy trying on a Halloween costume in the Children's Place. She was a little fairy. She had a wand and was banging it on everything. I can't wait until Halloween. I don't know what Lucy is going to be, but it will be so much fun!

These pictures are our attempts at sunset pictures from the Grove parking structure.
Monday we went to breakfast at Mimi's Cafe ( my favorite for breakfast ) and then went to our friend and cousin Monica and Randy's house in Corona. The following pictures are of Lucy bobbing not for apples..but for sodas in their tins. It was so cute!

All wet and cold from dunking her head in. Although it didn't stop her!

" I think I will just use my hands! "
Jack pot!
Don't worry, it was closed.
Monica taking pictures probably for her blog.

It was a great, fun-filled weekend! May there be many more!

Wow what a fantastic weekend. I was exhausted just reading about it. You have the best places to eat around your home. I've always wanted to try the fondue thing. It looked yummy. JoJo also loves the dog beach but she spends most of her time in the water fetching sticks. Glad to hear you had such a wonderful weekend, no wonder you were so cheerful on Tuesday. : )
