Enjoying some Family Time and Nice Weather

Today the weather here in CT was just beautiful. And unseasonably warm. Temps in the 60's. Go figure, Monday we had snow. Ahhh as the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather in CT wait a minute."

Joe was off from work today which is rare for a Saturday. So since everyone was home and the weather was so nice we took advantage. We cleaned out the inside of the van and then went to the store to pick up some flowers to head to Joe's parents grave. Joe's mother's birthday was on Wednesday and of course his father being a Korean War Vet and Thursday having been Veteran's Day we figured this was the perfect time to pay our respects. We found their headstone and placed the flowers and Kaitlyn read her Me-ma a letter she had written her. Then we left.

Then we went and picked up some sandwiches at the store and found a park to eat our lunch. We had a nice picnic lunch and then the kids ran around the field for a while. CJ learned the fine art of rolling down a hill. Oh the giggles out of him. Then we headed back to the car and just went for a drive. Finally we decided to head back home though. Joe took down the Halloween lights and I started some baked ravioli for dinner. Now everyone's beat. Perhaps everyone will be off to bed early tonight. I love spending the day with my family. Glad we were able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather.
