That same evening we had Lia, our awesome babysitter, come over as we headed out for a fancy dinner. Wine, steak, and grownups only. A double-date with the Holbergs is always fun!
The day started slowly with the guys watching lots of football and the kids entertaining themselves at home. Leticia and I headed out for a 6-mile run at Sugarcreek. The trails were GORGEOUS with all the fall colors. We ran it pretty slowly but I can hardly complain. It was Leticia's first run since February!!! Wow! Later in the afternoon we went to the corn maze in Bellbrook. There was an incident where the kids started fighting over some funky accordion tube thing that they found on the ground. Kids are so weird sometimes. Jeremy sneakily trashed it and the rest of the outing was great. They loved the corn maze! It was set up like a mystery and they had to find clue boxes all around the maze to solve the mystery. Dave and I wimped out halfway through and took Chloe to the playground but Leticia and Jeremy finished the maze with the kids. They were thrilled to solve the mystery.
The guys played golf while we took the kids to breakfast at the Blueberry Cafe. Right before we left the muffin man arrived with his gourmet muffins. The kids were really excited to meet the Muffin Man. Graham even sang the song to him twice and changed the end of the song the second time. "...who lives in O-Hi-O!" The Muffin Man bopped back and forth to the song. So much fun. We left with a half dozen giant muffins even though we were completely stuffed.
That evening during Solana's ballet class I got a new tattoo :-) It fits perfectly under my wedding ring and now I don't feel guilty every time I forget my wedding ring. Which is...often. Dave was shocked but I think he likes it.
We fueled up on muffins and then visited the Air Force museum on the way to the airport. We had about 3 hours to spend and the kids lasted two. That place in huge. Funniest comments of the day: Jeremy - "I think I was expecting 4 planes or something..." Leticia - while in the 3rd hangar we saw the bay doors opening "Are we in a hangar?!?" Hehe. Jeremy wants to come back and spend a full day there. The AF Museum is pretty awesome. We've been there a few times and I feel like I've barely seen the tip of the iceberg.
