Home again

We are home now from our week away! We had a great trip but it was really nice to sleep in our own beds. Lila and I came down with bad colds on Saturday so our weekend included a lot of R&R, movies, OJ and Kleenex. And of course, laundry and unpacking (aka, the worst parts of vacation aftermath!)

The last day of our trip we stopped at a fun restaurant, Blueberry Hills Farm. It's a cool old farmhouse style breakfast/lunch restaurant located on - you guessed it, a blueberry farm! You can pick berries during blueberry season and they have lots of blueberry items on the menu - including blueberry syrup!

Here are the kids posing next to our outdoor picnic table ... See the blueberry plants behind them?

Lila's hot chocolate had a small portion of whipped cream ;) 

And so did the kids' waffles!!! 

I got a delicious BLT with blueberry mayo and some amazing fisherman's clam chowder - so good!!

After we got home, I spent the rest of the weekend nursing my cold with slipper boots and flannel, which was perfect for cold mornings in the yard. Owen is constantly wanting to play outside all day long, going to our screen door chanting "side, mama, side!!!" (His way of asking to go outside).

We also got a giant pumpkin on our way home, and despite passing many pumpkin patches we actually got this big one at Costco, ha!! (#notfestive)

Sunday we watched football and I made one of my favorite fall crockpot recipes - crockpot lasagna. Hearty and delicious.

Can't say I'm excited to go back to the work routine tomorrow, hoping we are at least all feeling better by then!!



  1. Still dying over where y'all vacationed, it's beautiful and looks so relaxing! That crockpot lasagna made my stomach growl just thinking about it!

  9. Okay, I have to admit that when you said, "including blueberry syrup" I thought it said 'soup' and I was a little weirded out haha!! Michael and I made your cauliflower soup on Friday (with a few swaps) and it was soo yummy! We definitely went for seconds and ate way too much haha! Hope you're all feeling better now!

  10. Hi Kaitlin!
