Favorite Thing Friday - October 27th

It's not quite Friday in my corner of the world, but it's close.  Maybe by writing my Favorite Thing Friday thing post I'll get a good jump going into the weekend.  After a day spent in meetings, I most definitely need some powerful positive thinking!

Last week was Fall Break for Kiddo.  She had 3 days out of school.  We had great plans for the long weekend, but after a mix up with the volleyball schedule, an unexpected business trip for me and an out of nowhere assignment for My Guy, we weren't sure there would be any plans.  However, we did manage to cobble together a short family trip where we:


Looked at big rocks



Climbed into the big rocks


Checked out one of Jesse James' hideouts.



And photographed the fall foliage.

So the rocky start to Fall Break ended up being a rocky end too.  But in the end we all had a great time. 

That's it for my favorite thing this week.  Check out all the other Friday favorites over at Shay's Quilting in My Pyjamas.

  5. jesse james! can't get any better than that -- he cut a pretty wide swath across the midwest -- he's even been rumored to have hung out here in the frozen tundra! ... love the fall colors.

  6. Those rocks look like parts of the Australian bush. How cool to see where Jesse James hid when he was on the lam !

    Glad you had time to take a few days out for yourself in amongst all that crazy unexpected work .
