Last Wednesday was Jesse's birthday. We kept it lowkey and simple and I completely failed at taking any pictures, but I do have this precious video of Emerson singing Happy Birthday to her Daddy. I think it's the best version of Happy Birthday either of us has ever heard.
On Thursday Jesse had a doctor's appointment. Emerson and I drove him but we decided to wait in the car. She was so excited to sit in the back seat and watch a movie.
-Unfortunately we didn't get the news we were hoping for. It looks like Jesse will be on his crutches for about another 6 weeks. He will have a procedure to remove two screws in November before he can try putting weight on his leg. We were both disappointed to hear this but we are thankful that everything is healing properly and he is feeling pretty good in general. He's just so tired of being on crutches and I don't blame him one bit. I do have to say that he is not letting them slow him down, though. He has been doing everything with us and has even taken over bath time for Emerson. It's hard enough with two good legs so I think he's pretty brave for doing it! :)
-After his appointment, Emerson had dance. She got a new leotard and tights from Mimi and she was so excited to wear them.
-On Friday evening we decided to hit up Sonic and then head to the duck pond and playground. Emerson had her first lemon berry slush and she was quite obsessed. I only let her drink less than half and she was still pretty hyper afterwards.
There were only two other people there so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The weather was perfect and we had such a great time. We've decided it will be our new Friday night tradition.
On Saturday we attended the Halloween festival in our neighborhood. I shared a few pictures on Saturday, but here are a few more. It was a pirate theme so they had fun activities for the kiddos like walking the plank and digging for treasure. I didn't really get any pictures of E in the action, but I think she had a fun time.
She was most excited about this little ring she got for completing the pirate's treasure map.
-Later that evening we barbecued for the first time since Jesse's been home. We had to set it up a little differently than usual but it worked out just fine! :)
It was 91 degrees here yesterday so fall clothes just weren't happening. We are expecting it to cool down this week, so hopefully we can at least wear a scarf and long sleeves. :)
And I think we are pretty much caught up now. Our Halloween activities have kept us pretty busy and we have both looked forward to them each day. I am also loving that I have been taking lots of pictures! My girl is growing way too fast and I don't want to miss a second.
