Saturday, we were supposed to go to my sister's house for a Halloween party, but me being the non-planner that I am, forgot to check the time of the party. I thought it started at 6, but no, it was actually from 3-6. Epic mom fail. Enter guilt. I did manage to drag my sorry ass out of the house and hit up the Redbox, though. I picked up Epic and Megamind so we could have a little movie night. Elsa didn't want to come down as she was too busy trying to beat her score on Mario Kart, but I was not going to fight about it.
Epic was really cute and kind of a new twist on a story that's been told before (ahem, Ferngully). Still, the graphics were amazing and I love the characters, especially the slugs. Megamind, although animated, was really less of a kids' movie I thought. The theme of the movie was really pretty adult. Cordie got bored with it and went upstairs, but I enjoyed it.
I tried to get the girls out of the house to go to the nature trail with us, but apparently none of them brought appropriate footwear. Awesome. So, Jason and I went and did about a 2 mile circuit. He went to rest and I busted out a 1 mile run. Trail runs are hard (especially when a group of Cub Scouts' parents won't move) but I did about an 11:30 mile which is faster than I have been normally running. The Trail Run 5K is this weekend and I'm still undecided about running it.
Last weekend, Jason's brother and sister in law came up for a visit. They were very sweet and took us out to dinner and breakfast. We hit the trail with them, too and I got a few nice pictures. Kayla is due with a little boy at the end of this month and I can't wait to meet him.
