I promised details from our fun week with grandma...another week may have passed, but here they are!
My mom flew in on Monday and by Tuesday we were already hitting the mall, looking for deals on clothes for who else, the L man. I am a cheap skate when it comes to buying anything. Normally, if it's for me, I look at it, fall in love, and then walk out the door without it because I know it will go on sale soon. This is a trait I have inherited from my mother. It's a good thing, really. I love shopping at big name store for Logan, but refuse to buy anything unless it's on sale. Seriously, he's going to grow out of it in a couple of months anyway. Mom and I had TONS of fun hunting for the sales and actually found some great deals. I even came home with two new pairs of pants for me...down 1 size! Very exciting.
Wednesday we had a playdate without our meet up group. We met at the group leader's house and took a nice stroll to the park. Logan took a swing ride for the first time...and didn't really care. I was a bit disappointed.
On Thursday we made our way back to the Children's Museum in Phoenix. The library has this great program where you can rent culture passes and get into museums and zoo's for free. So, instead of paying 9 bucks a pop for my mom and I, we were el cheapo and got in for nothing. Logan had a great time, as usual. There weren't many kids there, but he enjoyed himself just as much.
Grandma went home Friday, but we'll see her in December for Christmas. Our next visitor will be Nana, coming in November!
Even though the fun weekend with Grandma was over, we squeezed in a date night at the Coyotes vs. Red Wings hockey game. Coyotes lost, but it was VERY nice of my friend Amanda to watch the little guy for us. To end the week, Sunday was family fun day at the pumpkin patch. First of all, the pumpkin patches here are not up to par as far as Michigan pumpkin patches. If we were back at home, I would be visiting Uncle John's Cider Mill, which also houses a pumpkin patch. However, we made the most of the lack of cider and did have fun. There was a petting zoo area and a corn maze that we visiting. The corn maze was hella long and we were almost trapped in there for life, but some obnoxious kid captured us as hostages and led us out. True story. Kind of embarrassing. We also ran into one of my students from school, which is also fun. Logan picked out a pumpkin as did Andy and I. We ended up buying a Mr. Potato Head kit for the little pumpkin instead of cutting it for Logan, because, you know, he's 8 months. Our pumpkins are still sitting waiting for their pumpkin death.
The McKenna family is very excited for our first Halloween with Logan. Yes, he is going trick-or-treating. And yes, we will be eating all of his candy. Mr. Logan will be dressed as Yoda while I am Princess Leia and Andy is Luke Skywalker. The secret's out: we're a nerd family
