Well hello. We have been keeping busy lately. October was a good month for us and we were sad to see it go. Here are a few ways we made sure to enjoy the month and the weather.
We started out October with Disney on Ice. I really wasn’t sure if these kids would sit still long enough, but we took a chance and I’m so glad we did because they LOVED it!
We did a little car shopping and well it isn’t always roses with these two. We were chatting with the salesman and we turned around to find these two wrestling on the floor. Sigh.
We finished soccer season with a bang. These two friends just love to hang out!
The weather cooled down and we found this fun hat at our Bass Pro Shop.
I did a little meal prepping with the cutest little assistant.
We attended school Halloween parties….
This Halloween party had a fun crafting station. What a fun idea!
We attended my son’s school Peace Day celebration complete with a dove release. The best part was watching this kid play on his school playground.
We celebrated this guy’s birthday!
We tried a new restaurant.
They had fun games including a Moana board game complete with character figures.
They have a yummy butternut squash soup!
And we enjoyed the cool fall weather riding bicycles and climbing trees and swinging on tire swings.
We visited the most fun farm near Huntsville and picked out pumpkins, rode on hayrides and swam in corn.
We visited family and my sister-in-law broke out their school mascot “The Buck” for the kids. My daughter was not much of a fan- eek! His eyebrows are kind of angry! Fun fact: My sister-in-law LOVES mascots. She filled in as the school mascot when she was in high school. She’s just the perfect size to play the part of a school mascot!
And finally our trip ended with a lot of outdoor time, gator rides, kite flying, a homemade playground (out of chopped tree stumps) and some swinging.
Also, our kids dressed in these costumes about 4.2 million times (or maybe just five times- it felt like they wore them all month).
We were sad to see October go and can’t wait to celebrate again next year. These kids are just so fun.
