Sunday (10/9) was a fun filled family day! We started out at church together for the first time in a long time. Then we headed to swim lessons at the Y. It was our last class for this session. The boys all continue to improve and we are very proud of them. We will be taking the next session off because we just have too many other things we want to do for all of the upcoming holidays. We will start again in January.
After that we headed to Easton to grab lunch and Halloween costumes. We were going to go to Steak N Shake, but then I saw Red Robin and we changed our plan. The food was awesome!! The boys loved the bottomless fries. We filled our bellies and headed across the parking lot to Halloween City for the boys' costumes. They were pretty overwhelmed with all of the choices (especially Zak) but AJ and Daniel picked theirs out. Then Zak decided he wanted to do a similar one so now we have a theme. We are trick or treating for the first time next weekend so you'll have to come back next week to see what they decided!
After that we headed downtown for the big event, Peppa Pig Live!! I didn't even know this was happening until the past week and at the last minute we decided to get tickets for all of us. The boys were so excited! We all enjoyed the show, especially Zak and Daniel. AJ was a little disappointed that some of the characters were puppets instead of people dressing up like those characters, but he said it was good. Adrian & I enjoyed it, but we enjoyed seeing the joy on the boys' faces even more.

Monday (10/10) was Columbus Day so Adrian was off. We thought about going out for a breakfast date but I ended up having to be in school for AJ's IEP meeting. After that we just spent the day finishing up all the stuff around the house that we didn't get to this weekend, including decorating for Halloween and making our food list for our camping trip this weekend.
Wednesday (10/12) Zak stayed home from school and hung out with me. He seems to be OK but he does have a lot of drainage from his nose and a bad cough so he'll be out today and tomorrow. We ran a few errands then relaxed in the afternoon. AJ had Brain Balance at night so I took Zak and Daniel to Meijer to get some camping supplies, spend some of their allowance and get a birthday gift for a friend for this weekend. Zak used his allowance to buy a Magic Track set, he's been wanting one since he saw the commercial. And Daniel used his allowance to buy some new Pokemon cards. We also got everyone new winter hats and gloves because it's supposed to be very cold Friday night while we're camping.
Thursday night Adrian took the three boys to Magic Mountain for a fundraiser for their school. I had to work and pick up their costumes for the weekend so I couldn't go with them. They had a great time playing mini golf, riding go carts, eating pizza, running around the play area and playing video games. They were there until after 9pm!! After they got home, we got the boys to bed and finally started trying to get ready to leave to go camping.
