Weekend Recap: Fall Colors, Beautiful Views & Boo Hash

Happy Monday!  Okay, I know, Monday, Ugh. I don’t know about you but I need a cup of coffee.  That said, I hope you all had beautiful weekends full of whatever it was that you were needing, whether that was getting some much-needed work done, family time or nothing at all.  Ours was the perfect Fall weekend. The skies were clear, the weather warm, the views stunning and I was surrounded by my two loves.  Oh and Matt came up with Boo Hash for breakfast, he was very proud of his clever pun on Blue potatoes. 😉 I could do with about 10 more of those in a row. 🙂

Addie loves our local library and it’s a great free way to get out of the house and let your Littles explore and play.

The views at the top of the Fenelon Place Elevator in Dubuque, Iowa are stunning.  At only $3/per person round trip, and Addie was free, it couldn’t be beat for a nice afternoon out.

A family afternoon out wouldn’t be complete without ice cream.

Daddy is shocked at the amazingness of Addie’s pumpkin decorating skills.

Pumpkin carving time with Daddy is loads of giggles.  We got our pumpkins at our local Pumpkin Patch and staying in to carve pumpkins was a nice family activity that cost next to nothing.

This face kept me from work I needed to get done on Sunday but I can’t be angry.
