We've been enjoying some much cooler weather around here, which means plenty of outside time!
We visited the zoo on Tuesday and it was so nice! Not only was the weather awesome, but it was so much less crowded than it has been now that everyone is back to school.
And this is the first visit that Jack has walked (well, sprint-walked) the entire time. Such a big guy now! It's a lot of walking. Even I get tired.
Molly is always a character. On the right there she's wearing 3 shirts, a pair of pants, and 2 pairs of shorts. Most of the time she wants to run around naked, but that day she wanted to wear everything at once. Either way, she's becoming very opinionated about what she wears.
Molly loves wearing her truck shirt! I think it's her favorite piece of clothing.
And Jack *finally* mastered bike riding this weekend. He's been working on it very periodically this summer and mostly he just lacked the persistence to figure out pedaling. It's been quite a long stretch of us trying to talk him into giving it another try and Saturday he finally decided he would. And he hopped right on and just started going. This kid... so stubborn! It will serve him well some day :)
And he also created some pretty impressive sidewalk chalk drawings.
Here's what we're eating this week:
Sunday: Rib Sunday! Smoked Ribs with Corn Pudding and Broccoli
Monday: Skillet Eggplant Parmesan with Bread and Salad
Tuesday: Chipotle Honey Lime Pork Tenderloin with Parmesan Zucchini and Corn
