We carved pumpkins! Avie chose a cat on a moon crest and Haven chose Pablo, a character from "The Backyardigans". When I asked Avie to pull out the seeds she said, "No, Mom...that is YUCKY!" Don't worry, she got into it eventually.

A good friend told us about a great area to hike. Boy was she right! It was beautiful! It was a little chilly, but we had a great time!

We pulled the carrots from our first garden. The kids thought it was pretty cool and they were in the middle of everything "helping".

We went to the pumpkin patch! After finding the perfect pumpkins, the kids got to jump in the air castle, pet some animals and run around some stacks of hay.

Avie has been busy being...her. Yes...below is a picture of her wearing her swim suit inside out, over her clothing.

And this is Avie with a dandilion up her nose. I dont know...

Field Trip!

In September, Haven had his first field trip to the Zoo. Grandma Jenny joined us (thank goodness...tracking 10 preschoolers is harder than it sounds) and Avie got to be in Haven's class for the day. All the kids had a great time. They each were given a card with animals pictures on it to hang around their necks along with a pen. As they saw each animal, they had to find it on their card and circle it. They also wore hats they made themselves! We ended the day with some very messy ice cream cones.
