Pumpkin Patch

We went yesterday for our annual trip to the pumpkin patch! This is one of my favorite things we do as a family. The kids love riding the wagon out to the big field of pumpkins and being able to choose one to bring home. This year, Abby was extremely particular and finally, after examining close to 100 pumpkins, found one that was perfect! We let them choose one extra activity and they both chose the pony ride! After our picnic, they ran in the big field, watched the helicopter take off, and ate cotton candy! It was a perfect fall day. Abby and the scarecrows!

14 months and Fall fun!!!

A couple of weeks ago, I went on Abby's first K field trip- the zoo! We had a great time together. It was the first time I went to the zoo w/out a stroller in 5 years!!Abby, Ms. Candler (her teacher), 2 classmates and Abby's fave animal- the HIPPO!!!

Abby and Jacob have been on fall break since last Thursday and we have loved every minute of it! It has been so nice to sleep in, stay in our pajamas longer, eat chocolate chip pancakes, and play outside. We took Jacob to pick out a new bike- he has been riding Abby's for a while and that gets tricky when she's home and wants to ride too!!

Nathan turned 14 months yesterday and has been walking for almost 2 weeks. He's still wobbly and tries to go WAY too fast, but he sure is proud of himself and cute in the process!
