A day at Oak Mountain

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at Oak Mountain! It was a beautiful day - perfect for enjoying the cooler weather and changing leaves. We packed a picnic and took their bikes and let them eat, ride, and explore. Later we drove to the top and then hiked down to Pevine Falls. Although it was more of a trickle, the kids loved it. They had a great time collecting leaves, finding sticks, climbing in the trees, and just playing outside.

down in the canyon near Pevine Falls (or trickle!) The leaves were gorgeous!

We had a lot of fun for Halloween. Jay came home early so he and A could carve their pumpkin. We trick or treated with some friends from the neighborhood and then had everyone over for dessert afterward. Ms. Jennifer made dirt pudding with gummy worms and scorpions and it was a big hit (I made pretty sugar cookies w/ orange sprinkles!!). It was our first time to trick or treat our neighborhood and it was a great way to get to meet more neighbors!

Cleaning out the pumpkin- you can see Jacob making his escape- he was not so excited about this!

the finished product! These two love to do "artsy" things together, so this was super fun for them.

Nathan, the sad zebra. He cried most of the night, so I thought I'd put it on here. He hated the hat on his costume!

finally caught one of him half-smiling!

Jay and the kids- Jacob is a confused super hero!!

I love this picture b/c it is reality!! We had just handed them all glow-sticks and they were not the least bit interested in having their pictures made! (Notice Nathan still pulling on the zebra hat- at least he's not crying!) We're headed off to trick or treat!
