Another week and we’re inching towards the end of October.
Last week held a family advisory council meeting for me at Brenner Children’s Hospital. We got to meet the new super cool robot they recently got and we got to tour the PICU. The PICU looked great – nice and bright. I just hope we never have to see the inside because we have a child there.
The rest of the week was our usual humdrum of activity. The week was spent rooting the KC Royals on to victory and the World Series! Thankfully there were a couple late afternoon games. Lindy started in with a running/stuffed up nose (only she could do it at the same time) so Lindy and I stayed home Friday to watch the Royals. We also went to Target to check out all the Paw Patrol toys. We definitely got her Xmas list started. Drew and Will headed to the Wake Forest Soccer game and cheered them on to a victory over Notre Dame. It ended up being a good sports night for both our teams as the Royals pulled out a win and are headed to the World Series!
Saturday was another busy day – aren’t they all. Wake Forest had a football game at noon so Drew and Lindy headed out to tailgate before the game. Will had tennis lessons that we headed to and then we headed to the football game. We got there half way through the first quarter and Wake was already down two touchdowns. The game wasn’t too pretty but the afternoon was. It was a beautiful fall afternoon to be at a game – no matter the final outcome of the game.
Sunday we had church and then we headed out to a new corn maze. We’ve gone to a corn maze every year since 2010 but we’ve always had to go out of town because we didn’t have a local one. This year the Children’s Home in Winston-Salem did a corn maze so we stayed local to check it out. It was one of the more difficult corn mazes we’ve ever done. The questions they gave you that were supposed to give directions were practically useless and the map was too confusing, except for Drew who finally had to take over and lead us out. Will walked the whole way and Lindy walked about half way. There were random hills in the maze which were surprising! The kids had fun doing all the fall activities out there. Lindy loved the corn pit and Will liked the big slides and apple cannon. It turned out to be a beautiful –if not a bit hot – afternoon. We had a hankering for breakfast for dinner afterwards so after trying 3 different restaurants which were all closed, we headed to IHOP and then home.
Pictures of our weekend fun are below.

My friend Brian passed on another cheerleading outfit for Lindy so she was decked out for the game Saturday.

Lindy and her friend, Sparky, at the game. They have sat behind us for years at the Wake games and they had a baby girl last January.
IHOP has wiki sticks as a kids activities. Super cool and kept them busy for a long time.
