Happy Autumn / Fall

Tuesday the 22nd - the first day of fall. I love fall! It is my favorite season. I love the leaves changing colors and the cooler temperatures. I look forward to drinking coffee and hot tea and eating chili and soups.

Not in line with the first day of fall, but an accomplishment of Kaitlynn's on the 22nd was that she pooped in the potty. She has done this once before, but is struggling with it. Her reward for pooping in the potty was "soda." Dave went to Trader Joe's and got the "healthiest" soda (is that possible?) Kaitlynn was so excited. She was dancing all over the house. It was super cute!

Later that evening, Dave met me at the ECC for APPLES to ZUCCHINI Healthy Meals for Happy Kids seminar. It was presented by a St. Louis Children’s Hospital Dietician. We got some great information. The main thing discussed was portion size, which is a very important thing. The portion size for a 1-2 year old is very different than that of a 3-5 year old and a 6+ year old.

We had to drop one of our cars off at the shop because it needed new brakes. So Kaitlynn and I were without a car. Thankfully Dave was on vacation (although he still had classes).

Playground Pizzazz and the New Walmart

Monday the 21st Dave, Kaitlynn and I went to the ECC for the Playground Pizzazz. We ran into Tara and Bailey there. It was such a hot day. The girls were so sweaty. Kaitlynn did well with telling us she needed to use the potty. We saw her P.A.T. Educator, Amy, there and I talked with a lady I used to work with.

Afterwards, we picked MawMaw up from work. We went shopping. Kangaroo Kids was one of our stops. We also visited the new Walmart in our area. It is huge! I can't wait to go back. We ran into Tara, Jonathon and Bailey there. Kaitlynn and Bailey ran around the grocery isles for awhile.

Grant's Farm

Sunday the 20th, we were supposed to meet some friends at Grant's Farm, but it was raining in the morning, so we canceled. Later on it cleared up, so Dave, Kaitlynn and I went. We had a great time. Kaitlynn enjoyed a snowcone while Dave and I enjoyed the samples of beer. We were so excited to get to sample a new product coming out on October 5th (which is a great day - my dad's birthday). Bud Light is launching a wheat beer and it is awesome! I love sampling new products before they are on the market. I recommend everyone trying this product out. I know we will definitely be buying it on October 5th.

After Grant's Farm, we went to MawMaw's. We hung out there for a bit and then went to Casa Gallardo's for dinner. Yum!
What a great Sunday it turned out to be!
