Me & The Boys

 Matt went down to DC for his 25th high school reunion, leaving me and the boys on our own for the weekend. Luckily we had lots to do to keep us busy.

After we hit up a few tag sales on Saturday morning, I loaded up the boys in the red wagon and we headed to a fall fair that was taking place at the school that we live next door to (as in, literally, our driveway ends where the school driveway begins).

 Our first stop was the face painter. Matthew asked for a bat (shocking!).
 There were a lot of local school PTAs represented, as well as child and town safety groups. A very kid-friendly affair.
 Matthew got to decorate yet another pumpkin (that makes 4 little pumpkins on our porch).
There were bouncy houses and slides at this fair too - they seem to be "the" entertainment at all these fairs we've been to.
Matthew would have jumped and slid all day if I let him.
There were also booths with Matthew's all time favorite fair game - the spinny wheel. He won his choice of a little toy from a prize bucket. He chose a whistle (you know, because we need more noise in our life).
After we walked home, the boys sat on the front porch to eat their Halloween cookies (yummy and messy).
And after making a mess of themselves with their treats, Matthew tried to teach Noah how to use the whistle. It was cute and quite disgusting at the same time (lots of cookie slobber).
Sunday morning we got up, got dressed and started our day. After breakfast, Noah went on the attack (playfully of course).
He had Matthew pinned for quite some time (Matthew plays along).
The laughter coming out of these two was insane.
After Matt got home, we laid low for the rest of the day. Playing in boxes...
...and dressing up as superheroes.
Using Matt's shirt and a few blankets, both boys were happy with their make-shift capes.
So happy that they agreed to pose for a picture together.
Then it was bath, book and bed. The weekend flew by. I had a blast hanging out with my boys, but we're all glad daddy is home!

My kids used my bath towels for the longest time to make themselves capes. So cute.

How nice you didn't have to travel far for another day of FUN at the fair. I think Matthew needs one of those big blow up slides of his own?? haha
