I Just Love Him

I didn't go on the pumpkin patch trip this year w/ the pre-school, because I didn't want to worry about toting around the baby...but another mom took this picture and sent it to me today. I really do just love this kid.

As my day has gone on today....more wonderful mom's from Damon's school sent me some more pictures of him....So sweet.

Such a flirt

The Little Lame Playground

This is a post dedicated to the little lame playground at our apartments, and to our friends Tiana, Ches, and Ellie who are not lame. So if you look in the background, you can see this little tiny playground. We are so grateful for this little tiny playground, and how it can keep our kids entertained for years. Literally years...our boys were playing on this playground when they were learning to walk, climb, jump...etc. Somehow they still find it as entertaining as ever (even though Tiana and I might not). Damon and I love the late afternoon texts, or calls to meet at the playground. They have saved us so many times in that late afternoon crunch of needing something to do before we go nuts. We are so glad that our friends have lived in these apartments for almost as long as we have, and that they are always there for us when we need a quick drop off babysitting favor, or a couple of eggs. Tiana and I sit at the park and talk it up for hours while the kids play, play, and play some more. They haul their trucks, buckets, shovels, footballs, and whatever else they can fit in their wagons to keep themselves entertained. All they really need is each other, and I am very grateful for such great friends, and a park where we can just meet in the middle - almost every day.

The Most Fun Day

After Mike had taken Damon on a long early morning bike ride, and to hit balls at the driving range, we went up to Rockville to meet up with Mike's cousin Heather, her little boy Gavin, Mike's aunt Tamara, our good friends Richard and Dana, and their daughter Sienna. We all went to this awesome Fall Festival at this big Farm. They had little stations for the kids to do all kind of little farming chores. It was so cute. They ground up corn, fed the chickens, painted the fence, cleaned the rugs, dug potatoes, and sawed the logs. They also just got to dig around w/ farming tools, pet goats, go on hay rides, go through a corn maze, and do other fun stuff. We had so much fun with our awesome family and friends!

Damon, Gavin & Sienna - ready for the hay ride

feeding the chickens

I know this is a weird picture, but Damon and Sienna kept hiding in the corn and jumping out to scare us. I personally think this picture is great

Beautiful Heather and her sweet boy Gavin
