Fall Break Staycation

The girls had Fall Break the week before last. This is something new to us as there is no such thing in California. A whole week off on October??? Awesome. We decided to do a Staycation. It was a lot of fun!

The first weekend we went to a fall festival at the Littleton Museum.  Mia loved the storyteller.

Anna was more in to the games.

Both liked the rocking horse.

There is a blacksmith working there every Saturday. Last time he made horseshoes, this time hooks.

I still watched the boys on Monday. Don't want to miss that!

We did a couple of projects during the week. The girls wanted a shelf in the play room that Oli could not reach. It would hold their "important" stuff.  They made one with Daddy!

Maks and Mia waiting for their turn at the router.

Next they painted it! Mia picked out aquamarine and Anna picked out sparkly gold.

Finished product!

Later in the weekewent to the children's museum. The girls are getting a little old for some of the stuff so this may be our last trip for awhile, maybe ever.

They attended a class to learn about fish.

We also checked out the skate park in our city.  We've never been to it. 

Mia spent a lot of time reading Shel Silverstein and loving it!

We made some no-sew pumpkin crafts! 

To top of our week we went to an all-children cast performance of Alice in Wonderland.

It was a great week! We especially enjoyed having Daddy home with us and doing stuff around here.
