Celebrating Being Five!

We had a great fall weekend!! The weather was perfect, the leaves have all changed, the air "smelled" like fall! Two of our daughters and their families came home to celebrate our oldest grandsons b'day. Our son and daughter in law and their girls were here also. We always ask the kids what they want to eat and what kind of cake for their b'day. He chose "thanksgiving food" and a baseball cake. So we had thanksgiving food; thank you to all who brought food, it was delicious!! Then Tiff made the cubs jersey cake!! It turned out Great!! Very fitting for the weekend Todd informed us cuz the Cubs were playing and doing very well. We had 25 people including children. Our grandson had sooo much fun playing with all of his cousins, weather was perfect for being outside, so that is what they did.
Then on Sat we went to a pumpkin patch. The kids played in a "corn box" instead of sand, they rode a train, hay ride,and went down a "hay slide". They had a ball!! So did we. They also did some chunkin pumpkin sling shot. We went through a corn maze as well. We had a special friend come along also. Todd's sister and her two children spent the day with us. Was so fun to spend some time with them.
Then on Sat night I got this strange stomach ache, not that stomach aches are EVER normal, but anyway......yep you guessed it, the stomach flu!! That lasted pretty much all day. I couldn't go to church with everyone, but I was able to be up for a little while to try and enjoy the last day of Todd and Kim being home. As they say.... all good things must come to an end; but this wasn't the ending I was planning on. LOL
