Rainy Day Photojournal

The rain this week has me completely uninspired. At least that’s my excuse for taking the lazy way out with today’s post. Here are some pics from our Sunday fun-day at the museum and a sweet birthday party for our neighbor, Ella.

What’s more fun than a double-date? A family double-date! Loved our afternoon with the Bishop fam at the Pumpkin Patch at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham. The girls had a great time riding the train, decorating pumpkins and playing around the museum’s dinosaur trail. As predicted, the dads enjoyed the pumpkin sling shot!

Later in the afternoon, we helped celebrate Ella’s 2nd birthday. Her parents, our dear friends and next door neighbors, hosted the sweetest party complete with a ladybug release (3,000 of them!) and the best face painter (who was so good, we’ve booked her to adorn our kids’ faces for Halloween night). The kids had a blast releasing (and catching) the ladybugs…and letting them crawl all over their arms and legs. The parents got quite a kick out of the whole spectacle!
