November Highlights

November is not quite done yet, and we’ve had a ton of fun! Here’s a peak at what we’ve been up to lately….

We just wrapped up Liam’s 2nd Healthy Kids Running Series race season. He aged into another group this year that put him into the 1/4 mile race as opposed to the 50-yard dash, so it was definitely more challenging for him, but he gave it 110% & was amazing! He had done the 1st series back in Spring 2015 and enjoyed the experience so much that he wanted to give it another go around. I will admit that I thought the 1/4 was a a lot for the kinders to do, but he did it every week. We continue to be SO VERY proud of this little dude! He is a special little guy ❤

Little man recently began taking weekly martial arts classes with Victory Martial Arts. We really love their facility & all the staff there. In addition to the fact that they are teaching him martial arts, they also teach the kids self-respect, self-discipline, good behavior, and good-manners. He’s already earned a stripe on his white belt and is up for a belt promotion next month. We’ll keep you posted! 🙂

Liam had his 1st elementary school field trip, which coincidentally was on Veteran’s Day. I didn’t have to work that day, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to be able to chaperone. We headed out to one of our favorite spots to visit in the fall — Green Meadows Petting Farm.

This trip was Liam’s very 1st time holding the baby chick by himself. He was super excited. I got to hang out with all boys in his class. They were a fun group & definitely kept me on my toes all day 😉

We couldn’t have asked for better weather & the farm was beautiful! Overall, it was a great field trip with his school ❤

Call me crazy, but afterwards, that same day of the field trip…..even though I was exhausted….I toted us over to the Millennia Mall for pictures with Santa. I LOVE the setup & the Santa there is the best & {even though it seems super early} going around Veteran’s Day is honestly the only way to avoid crazy long lines. Sooo, yes, some day, Liam will look back and say I was crazy. I’m okay with that 🙂

He loved his visit with Santa!! The picture is adorbs ❤ ….I will be posting that soon. Here he is just after he took it.

Our latest adventure was out to the Long & Scott’s Corn Maze in Mount Dora.

We’ve talked about doing this for a few years, but for one reason or another, it just never worked into our schedule. As much as I try to not overbook us on the weekends at this time of the year….I usually do. LOL! So, yes, this was our very 1st time literally going out & getting lost in a corn maze. It was a different experience for our family of 3, but we made it through. The conversation between us within the maze was pretty hilarious at times! It was also a tad bit warm that day, so it made for the getting lost part a bit more frustrating. I think we were all over it rather quickly.

It’s definitely been a busy month for us, but we’ve had a lot of fun!

Until next time, friends….

Fall Fun at Green Meadows

Things have been quiet around here lately but that’s not because we’ve not been busy. Just the opposite actually. It’s been hard to find time to sit down & collect my thoughts. We are definitely feeling the hustle & bustle of the holiday season….not a bad thing, though. Makin’ some family memories, right? ❤

Recently, we took, what’s become an annual trip, to Green Meadows Petting Farm in Kissimmee. It’s such a cute & fun family place. We especially love to visit during the month of October because each guest leaves with a pumpkin that they pick out on the property 🙂

You can check out our past trips here and here

Each year, I’ve tried to get Mr. Liam to milk the cow. He wants no part of it 😉 …however, this year he did pet Mrs. Cow so that was something new.

We spent the afternoon with our good friends and had the best time. Liam & Kenadie have been besties since they were babes ❤  ….I seriously can’t believe how much these two have grown up. Especially as I looked back at pics from our visits to the farm the last few years.

Liam got a kick out of the Llama this year because we are now reading the “Llama Llama” books. He thought this guy looked like the character from his books 😉

The pony rides are another fav for our little man ❤ …this was the 1st year we didn’t have to walk with him, as he was big enough to ride with just the staff member (*insert mama tears…lol*)
