Souper

So, I have a nice long weekend.  We didn't make any huge plans, but kept these beautiful fall days full.

Friday, we spent a fair bit of time hunting for mushrooms around the local park.  
 and playing around.  I am completely obsessed with mushrooms these days, good thing Mom took that class to feed my obsession.  I actually sold back my halloween candy to the folks at 10c a pop and was willing to sacrifice enough for $3, which I figured could get us some pretty awesome chanterelles from the farmer's market.
This is my mushroom (and market band) dance of joy!

 and of course some two-tarts cookies that we wanted to protect from Mom.
 and some play-time at the secret playground.  This is more often than not what we give the camera if we are asked to smile!
 well, that or the scary faces.
 That night we went to a soup exchange at Leslie's house!  Dad made a huge vat of split-pea and we came home with a box of all sorts of delicious soups to feed us through the winter!
 Today was pretty awesome too, we started by dropping Dad off to help Ian pack for their move.  Dad's tetris powers are famous and they all did an amazing job packing everything up.  We got to hang at the park with Elsa, Christina, JJ and Laura.
 It was a pretty great park with some really fun climbing walls and slides, really something awesome for everyone!

 We left them just at lunch time so we could make it over to the Oregon Children's theater for a production of the Magic Treehouse!  Even better, it was the book I just read about Louis Armstrong and we got to enjoy all sorts of awesome jazz and craft projects in addition to one of our favorite stories.
 Tonight, we took those mushrooms we got from the market and made a pretty awesome pasta dinner.

 Since it was the money I got from my halloween candy, 
I took the roll as head chef and made the sauce, helped Daddy with the pasta and plated everything up.

 aaand of course ate it all up.
