Country Critters

I took the kids to a pumpkin patch with our playgroup. It was a lot of fun and really close by which was nice. The kids got to do a pony ride, hay ride, petting zoo, bounce houses, story time, duck races and were able to take home their own pumpkins. We invited our neighbors and their girls, Abby & Lily joined the fun.

Davis is 5

Davis is 5! He's really enjoying preschool. Not 1 time has he said he doesn't want to go. Probably because his best friend Van is in his class. He's working on writing his name. One of his favorite expressions that he uses all the time is "just one question". We had his party at the park this year. It turned out great. The weather was nice and cool. We brought the bounce house as an extra thing to play on. But the big hit was probably the pinata. The kids went crazy for it. I have a feeling I'll be forced to buy 1 every year. Also, it should be noted that earlier in the day Davis said that when people sing Happy Birthday to him, he doesn't want any "cha cha chas". I thought that was pretty hilarious. As a kid, Davis is pretty funny. He's still very affectionate. He still loves to kiss me constantly. But when he gets upset, he gets really upset. He'll pout like a champ. And if I tell him something he doesn't want to hear he'll fold his arms and look away.

Bennett at 5 months

Hard to believe it's been 5 months, but here we are. He is rolling over both ways. He seems to prefer to sleep on his tummy at the moment. We are adding oatmeal to his bottle right before bed time. I haven't felt like spoon feeding him just yet.

Patriot Day

Elliot's school does a 9/11 tribute every year which I think is pretty cool. They invite local firefighters, police officers, EMT and veterans to attend and be honored. I love that they're teaching the children to love America and to look up to our public servants. The scouts did the raising of the flag. The kids sang the National Anthem and read a tribute to the victims of 9/11.

Big Rocks Park

We found a new place to visit. Big Rocks Park is located in Glen Rose and is only 1 hour away. This place is cool because you can just let the kids splash around. In most places it only hits to your ankles. There is 1 spot that it goes up to your waist, so I feel it gives you variety. The kids loved it. And when you get tired of the water, you can climb giant rocks.

Perry's 1st Day of Preschool

Today was Perry's 1st ever experience with Preschool. She's going to Miss Lydia's house 1 day a week for 2 hours. She was a little nervous when I dropped her off, but loosened up when she saw her friend, Ellis. And by the time I picked her up, she was walking around like she owned the place.
