I know I haven’t given as much attention to the blog as I would like and it’s been over two months since my last post because I’ve been very busy with work, planning for our trip to the Philippines and planning for my sister’s wedding. Since she didn’t get any of the creative genes, I single-handedly made her save-the-date cards and now trying to finish all the wedding invitations!
According to an old adage, the best things in life are free. That can be argued, I suppose, but my boys have a way of convincing me that it is true. We’ve spent most of summer making awesome family memories and some of them are indeed free. Just like the weekend of Seattle Seafair, we spread out a blanket in a park and watch the Blue Angels for no more than a cost of the apple juice that we packed in our cooler. Or that one weekend where we had picnic at the beach park and the boys had a blast playing on the sand.
And that one Saturday when we woke up and decided that we were taking off for some destination- we ended up driving to Deception Pass, totally unprepared for what’s the weather like up there! We drove an hour and a half to walk through a bridge covered with thick fog and cold wind against our faces. But guess what? We had a lot of fun.
Lately, I have found that our family’s been doing spur of the moment road trips more often. I have to admit, I’m a total planner. In fact, I can’t event tell you how many times a day I go on Evernote and my vacation calendar to the Philippines at the end of this year is already all filled up but these spontaneous trips are so much fun & I really love it!
The weather here has turned fall-like. The leaves are starting to turn and the air is crisp and chilly, especially in the mornings and evenings. A sign that Jordan’s birthday is coming up! He will be 3 on Monday and though I’m having a hard time realizing that there are no more babies in our little family, he and his little brother will always be my babies.
I only have 9 days left to prepare for the party and even though it’s going to be small and intimate, I honestly haven’t done anything other than send out the invites! Since Jordan couldn’t make up his mind whether he wants a Lego party or construction trucks party (those are his favorites right now), I decided to just do a combo of both and call it a Builders’ Party! Of course, I will write more about it on a separate post.
