Our fall weekends all seem to be very similar – filled with fun, friends, food and family. Thankfully, this past weekend, mother nature blessed us with some

We started the weekend with an attempt at getting Hibachi in our hood on Friday night. We walked up to find the place closed and the doors sealed by the dishwasher soap folks. Who knew that getting dishwasher soap back required such heavy handed measures. The power had even been turned off. Talk about a major case of the sads! We headed across the parking lot for Italian instead. The food was tasty but it was kind of a let down after dreams of catching shrimp in the air.
Saturday = early start! My yard sale had been rescheduled for Saturday so I had to get up early and get ready. Considering we were expecting (another) monsoon, I think we got a fair amount of traffic. I even managed to sell enough stuff to make me feel like it was worth my time.
After a futile attempt to get my kids to nap, we headed to the local elementary school for their fall festival.
Then, we made up for our lack of hibachi the night before with sushi!

Most of Sunday was spent with Mathlete’s family. We had brunch and then visited awhile. Once home, I poured myself into a few domestic tasks like making oatmeal for the week
And apple spice bread
Before we knew it, it was bath time for the kids and off to bed everyone went.
Are you like us east coasters and finally got a little sunshine this weekend? Did you manage to squeeze in some playtime? Cook or make anything good?
