Apple & Pork

Yesterday we all went to the Apple and Pork festival. It was Lila's first time going and she had a lot of fun. Ian and Chris just wanted to eat as much food as possible!

Funnel Cake for breakfast.
Ian tried his hand at the tomahawk throw. It made the rest of us very nervous but I think he liked it.

Lila got to ride a pony.

And go to a petting zoo.

Lila's favorite food was the corn on the cob and Ian's favorite was pork on a stick. He had two!

A bunch of tractor toys were set up for a kids tractor pull, but they were nice enough to let Lila just sit on them and try them out.

Football Season!

It's my favorite time of year--football season! On Saturday we tailgated before the first Illini home game. It was perfect weather and an unusually great game time.

This is Fun

HomeGoods has a quiz on their website that determines your decorating style and then gives you decorating and entertaining tips. It was pretty right on for me--it said I like things organized and three of the six "happy colors" it picked for me were shades of red!

I thought I'd share, it only takes a couple of minutes.

End of Summer

Today was the last day of the pool season and we decided to take advantage of it.

Ian going off of the high dive.

After going off of the diving board, Ian hung out on the lounge chair like this until his friend/girlfriend Lucy showed up. Then he was all about swimming! I was going to take some stealth paparazzi-like pictures of them, but they ended up spending most of their time on the high dive and the water slide. A hugely pregnant woman is not really inconspicuous in the high dive/water slide pool so I decided not to embarrass him.

Friday Fun

Last night we took the kids back to 2 Toots for dinner. Chris rode the train home from work and Lila, Ian, and I joined him on his train to ride the three extra stops.

Waiting for our train.

Lila loved running up and down the train platform. She fell down and bumped her head right after this, but that didn't stop her from running some more.

Riding the train.

As if the train that brings you food and the cupcakes with train whistles on them weren't enough, the restaurant also has a mechanical horse. Lila loved it!
