Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Pumpkins, slides, and adult tricycles! We had a great time at the pumpkin patch with Julie, Ross,Jalie, Hilda and Avery. Highlights for Owen and Paige were no doubt the slides. I'm sure you guys could have stayed there all day. Mama's favorite part was the big trikes and semi-racing dada while we both held you babies on our laps.. We all enjoyed the tractor ride to the pumpkin patch to pick out a few winners that we could chop up to welcome trick-or-treaters to our house. Got some really good pics of my little cuties:)

What a fun Friday we had! We went to nana's office Halloween party and our papaw came to town for a nice long visit. You made the cutest little puppies and filled up on all this sugary!

Last week you guys made these cute little sun flowers. The middle is made of colored rice and they are so cute. I tried to tape them up in the kitchen but the rice makes them a little too heavy for that. So I will capture them here so I can always enjoy them!

A sandbox built for 2!

So while dada was off on his adventure, mama and nana got busy and made a sandbox. It took most of the weekend and extra help from nana's neighbor and uncle Alex but we got it done. Dada helped put the finishing touches (the seats) when he got home. I've gotta say, I'm pretty proud of it! I hope it brings hours of enjoyment to my little chickens.. Lots of love went into it that is for sure!

Dada is on an adventure!

Babies tonight our dada left for a week to go hike the Grand Canyon with papaw, uncle Jon, and cousins Cameron and Derek. We sure are gonna miss him but we are happy that he gets to go have such a cool adventure. So lets brace ourselves for what's sure to be a interesting week. I'm guessing we will eat out a little more and the casa will get a little messier than usual but it will just make dada's return home that much sweeter!

Planting roots!

We now have a beautiful Modesto Ash that calls our backyard home! I'm excited to watch it grow, rake up leaves, and sit in its shade on hot sunny days. Funny how planting a tree didn't really seem important to me until Paige and Owen came along.. You babies have brought so much to my life and now you have brought life to our back yard.

Paige and Mama's Speical Day...

It's fall break which means mama has three days off from work.  That means one whole day just for mama and Paige to play.  Paige we had a fantastic fun filled day together.  After dropping bubba off to play with his friends at daycare we headed to Barnes and Noble.  There we shared a pumpkin cupcake (cake for mama and frosting for you), you had chocolate milk and mama had a latte.  We then played at the train table and got a book 'The Tickle Tree'.  After that we headed home for a short time to play then back out to meet several friends for some gym fun at gym magic.  You loved playing in the foam pit, walking the balance beam, and jumping on the trampoline.  After the gym we meet our Nana for lunch at Chiles.  After lunch it was way past your nap time but you refused to take a nap once we got home so instead we cuddled on the couch watching a movie before it was time to pick up bubba.  Several times throughout the day for you cried for and asked for bubba.  I think you were worried that we were leaving him behind each time we got in the car.  It was sweet!  Not quite sure when we can do it again but mama is already looking forward to another special day to spend with you baby girl!

Owen and Mama's Special Day..

Monday was not only Columbus Day, but it was also the special day that I got to play with my favorite little man! Owen after dropping off your sis we headed to Starbucks where you had chocolate milk and we shared a pumpkin muffin. Then we headed home to play blocks and cars. We then headed to the nmsu pond to meet friends and feed the ducks. You loved being so close to the ducks and playing chase with your friends. Our pal Emerson fell down and you tried to help him up. It was incredibly sweet and cute and the other mamas were impressed with your concern for others! We then we out where we shared one side of a booth with Emerson and his mama. We were squished but but we loved every minute of it! You crashed before we made it home and you slept like a little rock until it was time to go pick up sissy. It was a fantastic day with jus the two of us and I can't wait until the next 'Owen and Mama Day'!

State Fair...

We had a great time at the Southern New Mexico State Fair. It was our first fair experience so the one thing we had to be sure to enjoy was a funnel cake.  After visiting the animals we got ourselves one big lemonade, one funnel cake and found some nice grass to enjoy it.  Paige and Owen you loved it! Mama had to fight for portion and I think our poor dada only had a bite or two if he was lucky.  We walked around the rides but you babies are still a little to small for them so we just enjoyed the sights.

Flying 'J' Ranch

This past weekend we headed to Ruidoso to meet Granny, Pa, Aunt Julie, Uncle Rocky and cousins Ross and Jalie.  Before hitting the road mama ran a 5k race with Alex, Alicia and Tony.  It was great to run in the fog and the added pressure of the parade spectators helped me run my best time so far of 31 minutes.  After the race mama headed home, we all piled in the van, got gas, and picked up a quick lunch.  We stayed in a nice hotel that had a great grassy area to hang out in and play.  Once Granny and Pa arrived, mama and dada got to sneak off to the hotel room for a nap.  Then it was up and off to the show.  Was a fun time and I have to say Owen and Paige did great even though we ate two hours after their normal supper time.  We will have to go again in a few years when Owen and Paige can do a little more of the activities they have for kids.
