Many thanks to Grace ($$$ glasses) for keeping up with our kids and giving Jenn and me some catch-up time with the grown-ups!

Clam Bake 2013
It's officially autumn.
One of our busy fall weekends has come to a close. Last night we went to Chris & Val's annual Clam Bake. The anticipation began months ago when we got a "save the date" magnet in the mail. It had a photo of a big bon fire on it, and ever since, our kids have asked when we're going to "go to the big fire." The anticipation drew to a close yesterday morning when we fed the kids small breakfasts and lunches knowing that there was going to be a bunch of good food and a late night ahead of us. Between the hay ride, the food, the fireworks, the catching up with friends that we now see once a year, the new photo booth and the staying up past dark, it was a full, fun evening that the kids and we won't soon forget.
We followed up our late evening with catching Aunt Haley over at Kent State. The score wasn't what we were hoping for, but we love seeing extra of Aunt Haley, Grandma Laura & Grandpa Dave.
On Friday evening, Jenn had some time with the ladies producing more art (I know! Whooda thought!!!) at Wine and Canvas while I took the kids to the clinic to throw monkey-balls into the woods (I think they're some kind of walnut seed thingies, but the kids call them monkey-balls) and to collect what remained of the buckeyes.
Jenn's been having some more food fun with the kids' meals.
