This Fall has been full of fun festivities.
To start off, we bought Z a red wagon in September. This is an ATW red wagon: it’s got big wheels so we can use it out on the property. Z loves it.
He enjoys being helpful, collecting sticks for kindling out in the front yard and on the property. Rides back and forth to the mailbox have become part of the daily routine.
We have also enjoyed a very dry Fall which means beautiful fall foliage. Day after day we have enjoyed wonderful hues of red, yellow, and orange leaves. Perfect for fall outings.
Speaking of which, at the end of October we went to Z’s first pumpkin patch with my MOPS group! It was a cold foggy morning but that meant we had the patch and farm all to ourselves!
Each kid got their own snack, pumpkin coloring page, a tractor ride through a themed country farmland, and to “pick” their own small pumpkin for the low price of 5$ .
The adults were offered hot coco and cider and a place to warm up by the fire while the kids went on the tractor ride. My grandmother was here to visit for the week and she loved being of the outing. The whole thing was about an hour, perfect for a toddler.
The next week was Halloween. Our church does a large Harvest Festival inside with prizes, balloons, games, and inflatables. Zach dressed as a seahawks football player and Mom and Dad dressed as his fans in seahawk gear.
Highlights of Z’s evening included: getting a blue balloon all to himself, playing a game and winning candy (aka one packet of gummy lifesavers), and going down the large inflatable slide with Dad.
November has flown by with work, house projects, and preparing for the holiday season. We are looking forward to spending Thanksgiving weekend with L’s parents this year: resting, eating great food, and enjoying quality time with each other.
Hope you have all had a great fall and wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
