Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday, we decided to go to a pumpkin patch. This was not a little pumpkin patch like we went last year in Arizona. This farm was huge and it had so much to do and there were tons of people. The best part about the pumpkin patch was all the animals. The kids love seeing and touching all the farm animals. They also had lots of fun seeing all the pumpkins and of course going on a hay ride.

The animals were Chloe's very part. She was not scared of them at all.

Apple Picking

On Saturday the kids and I went apple picking with Heidi, Eirik and Skye. I have never been apple picking before and it was so much fun. The apples that we picked were huge and delicious. The boys had so much fun picking apples, running and rolling around in the grass. I think the part that they liked the most was seeing all the farm animals like the goats, pigs, chickens, and cows. It was a fun day and now I have to make some apple pie, applesauce, apple pancakes and maybe some more apple desserts with all the apples we picked.

Fun Things

Here are some pictures of some things that we have done these last couple of weeks. We have been trying to do more things outside before the weather gets bad again.
We went hiking with some of the gang and it was a perfect hike for the kids.

Max and Skye had so much fun running a head of us and leading the way.

We went to the zoo one day with Skye and Eirik and of course the kids had so much fun.

Jason's Visit

At the end of September Jason and Gabe came for a visit. It was so good to see my brother. I don't get to see him that often with him living in Ecuador, so it is always so much fun when he makes the trip to the states. This time he brought Gabe along with him. No one except for Babs has met him so it was so much fun getting to know my little nephew. He is the cutest thing ever. He is so cute with his dark brown eyes. We had so much fun spending time with them both and can't wait to see the rest of the family in December. Here are some pictures of all the fun things we did while Jason and Gabe were in Seattle.
Gabe's first time in a pool and he loved it after he got use to it.

This is how Chloe goes down slides. She always has to go backwards, but she does it all by herself.

Gabe loved this swing and pretty much fell asleep in it.

We were so lucky that we were able to celebrate Gabe's 1st birthday. We decorated the house, made our own pizzas, opened presents and of course had cake.

He is so cute!

Chloe loves dogs. She will follow them everyone. She will even get up to their face, so they will lick her face and mouth. She thinks it is so funny.
