Enough back injury talk, let's look at pictures of my adorable children enjoying fall activities.
First up: We went to the pumpkin patch again. Yes, that's two pumpkin patches in one week, but the second one wasn't Amish and had fun stuff like train rides for the kids.
|Is this safe? I don't feel safe.|
|I'm very concerned about not wearing a seat belt here.|
The kids rode that train ride several times and we also did the big hayride around the corn maze. I complain about living in the middle of nowhere, but it is nice to live so close to all of these farms when it's pumpkin patch season. Also, we're getting a DSW next week, so basically I can't really complain anymore.
At the farm, the kids also really enjoyed the corn pit. Clearly we need a giant box of dried corn for our yard.
|Hours of fun|
|Little sister copycat|
|I'm never leaving here!|
Yes, my almost two year old does have the longest legs. I know this because I have at least one Groundhog Day-esque conversation with a stranger every week that starts with "Wow, your kids are tall. Are they tall for their age?"
My favorite part of these conversations is how it always ends with the same question. "Is your husband tall?"
|You know he is|
Back on topic of cute children, yesterday morning we went to the playground and it was actually cold and windy. We haven't had cold weather yet, so I had to give Cordelia one of her birthday presents early.
|Do you think she likes the hat?|
Faith is a ton of fun to take to the playground now because she's gaining so much confidence from her new school and she's even learning games from the other kids. She was actually going up to other kids and asking them to play tag. That's huge for her!
|Plus she can rock Crocs and socks|
Most of the time when Cordelia goes to the playground, it's when we are waiting to pick up Faith from school or speech therapy, so when we do go with both of them, she's Faith's shadow. A little whiny, copy-cat shadow, but Faith doesn't seem to mind much.
|I wanna do what YOU DO!|
Oh, yeah and I worked out this weekend. One of the workouts was a Body Jam launch party, which was a new experience for me, and took place outside of the gym in a crowded shopping center. If I had known that ahead of time, I probably wouldn't have gone, but I'm sure my dance moves brought joy to someone's day. I'm all about sharing the joy.
Would you do a dance workout out in public?
Do you like to do the stereotypical fall activities? I didn't do them before kids and I'm not going to be arguing with them to go when they'd rather not.
