we went to see "the office" musical on thursday night, so we grabbed dinner at one of our favorite thai restaurants across the street from the theatre. it has been a little while since we've been there and we hadn't had a date night in forever, so it was the perfect treat before the show! i'm still thinking about how good that thai eggplant was, yum!

there was a great turnout at the theatre and the crowd loved the show. we had great seats with my parents and a few of our co-workers! it was very funny and i give the cast credit for playing so many different characters! (some of their costumes were incredibly fast!)
after seeing the musical last night, it makes me want to go back and re-watch the show again!
have a great weekend!

i looked through the doorway into our bedroom and found him in this position on his favorite pink fleece blanket. what a cutie! i had to zoom in with the camera on my phone so that i wouldn't disturb him. after i took the picture, i ran over to him and face planted into that glorious belly fluff!

in addition to shopping at tj's we also picked up some groceries from another grocery store we like, homemade pirogies from a store that makes nothing but pirogies, and stopped at the cheesecake factory on the way home for dinner and dessert thanks to some gift cards that my parents had.
yup, we spent the day in new jersey all revolving around food and it was a great trip! at the cheesecake factory i had some delicious herb-crusted salmon with mango lime cheesecake!
don't feel too bad for ryan, he got a slice of s'mores cheesecake brought home for him too!

happy fall! today's the first day of autumn and the weather has felt like a combination of fall in the mornings, summer in the afternoons, and fall in the evenings. i'm not complaining.
at the start of the fall season, i always like to put together a fall bucket list of things we hope to do before it snows. we're already off to a good start with some of the things on our list . . .
6. pick out a pumpkin and carve it for halloween
7. have pumpkin ice cream
8. plant mums in our front yard
what's on your fall list this year?

ryan worked lighting for the load in, deck for the show call, and lighting for the load out. i worked rigging for the load in, robo spot for the show call, and rigging for the load out. it was a long day but luckily it wasn't too bad of a day and the weather was fairly nice (except for the fact that we were actually freezing cold for most of the day)!

visiting roba family farms on saturday, we took a drive up to ritter's cider mill. we picked out some apples, bought some cider, and visited the animals. i always love ritter's in the fall.

on saturday morning, my parents and i took a trip to roba family farms. it's a tradition of ours to visit roba's farm each fall. saturday was teacher appreciation day, which meant we got in for free and didn't have to pay admission. the weather was cooler than normal, overcast, and very windy, but that didn't stop us from having a good time.
ryan had to work all day on saturday, so he didn't get to join us. luckily, the teacher appreciation free admission was for both saturday and sunday, so after ryan got out of work on sunday evening we ran up to roba's for a quick hour before they closed so that ryan had a chance to visit the farm this year too!

this month our baby boy turns eight years old! we love our little guy so much and it's so incredibly hard to believe that he's eight already! i can't believe how much he's grown since we first brought him home in january 2012. of course we're celebrating his birthday for days with lots of extra kisses, cuddles, and tuna!

we had the opportunity to visit ground zero six years ago in september, just after the 12th anniversary of 9/11 and it was a moving experience. the waterfalls and the reflecting pools that sit within the footprints of where the twin towers once stood are a lovely tribute, and the freedom tower is quite a site to behold. our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who lost a loved one on this day 18 years ago.
