October 2009


After “school” (aka daycare) yesterday, the kids and I met Brittan at Downing Farms to pick out our pumpkins for Halloween.  The kids weren’t feeling very well and we ran into dinner time, so the kids were grumpy and we didn’t get very good pictures.  Regardless, the kids had fun looking at all the pumpkins and deciding which ones they wanted.  Austin kept trying to pick up each pumpkin and kept saying “this one’s too heavy!” and “that’s a heavy one!”.  Finally, we decided on two mini pumpkins for the kids and two big pumpkins for Brittan and me.

Even Adrianna could lift her own pumpkin:

She was happy!

On Saturday night, Austin and I ventured out to Cedar Point for Halloweekends.  I love being able to do things with each kid and spend one-on-one time with Austin or Adrianna.  So while Brittan and Adri stayed home to hang out, Austin and I had some mommy-son time.   (Not sure why he insists on making a “CHEESE!” face in every picture, but he is cute nonetheless!)

Today we headed to Osbourne Park for Harvest Happenings. It’s basically a community fall festival with fun events for the kids.  They had hay rides, tractor rides, kids’ games, pumpkin painting, pony rides, petting zoo, etc…  The weather was pretty chilly as the wind wouldn’t get let up the whole time and by the end of our time there, Austin had to wear his winter coat.  Regardless, he had a great time and insisted on running from activity to activity.

First, was the tractor/train ride:

Austin’s favorite part was the “BIG pony rides!”

His very activity-the "big pony rides"!

Adrianna pretty much slept the whole time, but Brittan managed to get an adorable picture while she was awake:
