Experiencing Colder Weather...

but still making venturing out to the park.  On Tuesday Isaiah had a difficult time falling asleep at nap time (and ended not getting a nap).  So on Wednesday we bundled up and I took Isaiah to play at the park before attempting nap time.  The park trip before nap time still wasn't the perfect solution as it didn't completely wear him out, but we at least he got a nap on Wednesday.





Fire Truck Puzzle

Recently I was organizing toys in Isaiah's closet and I found the fire tuck floor puzzle.  I thought he might like it...and my thought was exactly correct...he LOVES it!

Sorry this first video is a little blurry and jumpy at the beginning.

Isaiah was so excited with the fire truck puzzle he wanted to show Daddy once he got home from work.

Daddy had fun helping Isaiah build the fire truck.  Isaiah is helping build the puzzle more each day.

Pumpkin Carving

My favorite part of pumpkin carving is cleaning out the gooey seeds and pulp from the inside of the pumpkin.  I was hoping Isaiah would like this sensory exploration too, but he wasn't really a fan.  Isaiah did enjoy moving the  clean/washed seeds from one bowl to another with a spoon.  He also thought it was cool that Mommy and Daddy carved a helicopter into the pumpkin.  He has asked several times to look at the helicopter on the porch.  We still need to get a picture of the pumpkin lit with a candle in it because it looks pretty cool. 

Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Last year our family, my sister's family, and our parents went to a pumpkin patch together out on Sauvie Island.  We had a lot of fun. So this past Saturday was family pumpkin patch day.  Since my sister has a little dude this year we picked a closer farm.  We went to Lee Farms.  We have actually been to this farm pre-kids, and it is alright.  However, everything costs extra so we didn't end up doing a whole lot because we are too cheap.  We did get a cool bumpy pumpkin and ate some yummy donuts!

 My beautiful sister and Greyson, our newest little dude in the family!

Campbell really wanted to ride a pony and he loved it!  The pony ride cost six dollars so we weren't too interested in having Isaiah ride.  Isaiah didn't ask either...he just enjoyed watching his cousin ride.  Perfect for us!

 Petting his horse!
Giving a big CHEESE smile!

While Nonna and I went inside the barn store to buy donuts the boys enjoyed watching and petting the chicks.

We all enjoyed the apple Cinnamon donuts.

Next we got to pet goats.  Isaiah didn't like the goats though because he was right at the same height as them.  After this activity we washed our hands in a trough.

 Isaiah is hiding behind me and Travis is trying to convince him the goats are cool. 

All the pumpkins were laying out on a field...not quiet the same a picking them off the vine.  However, I do love my bumpy pumpkin we bought for four dollars...not too bad a price.  While I was looking at pumpkins my sweet nephew came up and gave me a kiss on the back.

The boys loved the tractor!

 But most importantly...the boys love each other!
