Still busy, but don’t worry, we finally have someone hired so there goes a lot of stress off my shoulders. But she doesn’t start for another couple weeks. So until then, we are still way behind in the office, but thankfully this weekend my parents helped us out. The kids had a little slumber party there last night so Hubby and I grabbed some dinner last night and got to work early this morning.
We went to Restaurant 1856 last night up in Okoboji, and it was fantastic. I had the salmon, over a parsnip puree with brown butter sauce and green beans almondine. I think I can totally try to replicate it, maybe someday. The view up there was spectacular, it was a lovely night. Thank you so much to my parents for watching the kids so we could do that and get a ton of work done today.
I have a couple other pictures to share today.
Here’s some from a quick trip up to Arnold’s Park, since it has just been beautiful out the last couple weeks.
We’ve been getting a lot of delicious produce from our patients lately, but one of them brought these into us. Holy decadence. If anyone in the area needs cupcakes for any events, let me know and I will pass on her info.
Some friends had a shed party Labor Day weekend and baby Grant made an appearance. He pretty much slept the whole time. Plenty of cuddle time with the great grandparents.
We also got to see baby Grant on Friday when we celebrated Kyle’s birthday. We stayed up past the kids’ bedtimes, so they were lounging on the couch. I tried to catch it for a picture, but of course Jenna got up.
A piece of ice cream cake perked up Tyler.
I almost forgot- Tyler started preschool last week! It didn’t seem very dramatic since his preschool is a room over from his daycare. And they just walk him over to his daycare room after preschool. He seems to like it. He was excited about his backpack. And this was horrible lighting.
Fortunately they let him start, even though he is not potty trained. Still plugging away, with no results.
The Clay County Fair started yesterday, and I got to work my 5 hour shift today at the Kiwanis stand. I haven’t been in so long, and it is still crazy. Even more food options. Hopefully we can take the kids sometime this week.
And on that note, I am exhausted and heading to bed. Thanks for hanging in there with me during this crazy time, hopefully I get back to a more regular one-two week blogging schedule. Happy fall everyone!
