Happy Friday! We have some stellar weather coming to Illinois this weekend, so we will be enjoying plenty of fall festivities!
The baseball cancels out the tutu, right?
Trick-or-Treat with Basketball
The University of Illinois women’s basketball team hosted a Trick-or-Treat event that we couldn’t pass up.
Even though candy is off limits for Jada (choking hazard…or, maybe I don’t want to share??), we love taking advantage of kid-friendly events in the area; and Champaign-Urbana has plenty of them thanks to the university.
Jada seemed to love looking at all the costumes and activities, but I think it was a bit overwhelming at first. They had quite a turnout!
However, you can see, she is most interested in playing with the basketball. That’s my girl!
I got to meet blog reader, Katie, and her boys at the event (failed to snap a pic!) and look forward to seeing more of them!
Library Story Time
Until my personal training picks up at the YMCA, I’m taking advantage of the free time by scoping out the local activities for Jada. I mentioned going to story time at the library, and we love it.
On Fridays, it’s less structured which is perfect for my mover-and-shaker!
She was obsessed with the corn kernels. Played, poured, and scooped the entire time. The group leader sets up activities for ages 0-3, so there are lots of interesting things for her to do if boredom were to strike.
Sometimes, we like to go to the library simply to explore and play with new toys.
Jada loves to carry around Wilbur, the pig, and Clifford, the big red dog, while she’s there.
Speaking of the library, I need your book recommendations. Any good reads out there I’m missing? I just finished The Book Thief, Gone Girl, and Dark Places.
More play. We are using our unfinished basement as a play area now. My parents saved my old Fisher Price farm set, and Jada loves to play with it now.
Oh, but I can’t take credit for the above set-up. That was Spencer’s doing. And, I’m pretty impressed!
Outdoors. That is where I love to be, and I’m going to soak it up as long as this weather hangs in!
Along with my furry side kick. <3
He is becoming a better runner as I often take him for short runs during our morning workouts. Usually, Spencer pushes the stroller, and then we will switch. Cooper needs to keep in shape for Hurricane Jada.
And, if you have been on the fence about trying Pro-Sculpt, I can’t encourage you enough to give their new flavor, pink lemonade, a shot. So tasty. Not too sweet.
It has surpassed my beloved fruit punch.
I usually take this before a workout and sometimes in the afternoon as a pick-me-up. It’s my coffee?

Did your parents save any toys from your childhood?
