Let me just begin by saying..I love fall. There's lot's of good "F" words I associate with Fall:
Feast. (which I do consider to be in a different category than food alone.)

But probably one of the most important...


I realize we are already almost halfway through the season, but as those of you that know me are more than aware, I wasn't blogging at the beginning of the season. So even though the Bronco's lost
last night, I decided we still should take a quick picture or two.

Dallace has been well trained to know how to throw her arms up in the air for Touchdown..and since Seattle actually won their game, she got to do this in her Seattle jersey with a smile..My team didn't allow for me to have a celebratory picture like hers.

Caught Red, or rather BROWN (sugar) handed.

So, here is how it went down. I decided I would make "something sweet". This particular "something sweet" called for brown sugar. I left the brown sugar on the counter and my child in the kitchen, on the ground, next to the counter. I walked less than 6 feet away for approximately 2.5 seconds, looked back around the corner just in time to see her scrambling to eat as much brown sugar off the floor. Being the amazing parent I am, I decided to give her 2.5 more seconds while I grabbed my camera to capture this moment. As I got the camera she was trying to flee the scene of the crime. (you'll notice her right hand is clutching as much sugar as it could possibly hold)

Baby Gym!

My friends and I recently discovered that a local gymnastics place let's little kids come in and play for FREE. (18 months and under are free, but it's still pretty cheap). So here are just a few of the things they offer..

17,000 square feet of springy ground with lots of springy mats great for jumping.

All sorts of little cars and riding toys.

A "rocker" for lack of the correct terminology..Sydney and Olivia LOVED this one!

A long trampoline, great for running and jumping.

A fish rocker.

Bars, that with a little assistance from Daddy, are really fun to hang on.

And then, of course, there is the slide. (There are actually two slides, but this one they can do without assistance)

The Corn Maze

We thought we'd take a quick pic in the car before our day got started. I noticed someone had dozed off in the background so we had to get a closer look.

After waking Dallace up we went and looked at the animals..she seemed to be a bit over whelmed by the reindeer.

Then, we climbed the straw pyramid.

Then we were off to the corn maze.

First Dallace led the way.

Then she pulled Daddy in to help her lead the way.

Then she found an even BETTER way to make it through the corn maze..on Daddy's shoulder's.

Pumpkin Patch

How to choose a pumpkin.
First, make sure it's not a chair disguised as a pumpkin.

Next, make sure no one is going to steal your pumpkin (or chair if you're still undecided).

If you decide said "pumpkin" is in fact a chair and not a real pumpkin go find a "real pumpkin."

Then, check to see if the pumpkin will play peek-a-boo with you.

If it won't- don't completely rule it out..there are still other tests to see if it's right for you.

For example, make sure it can hold your weight (just in case you WANT to use it as a chair)

Check to see if it's good for drumming.

Of course, you should PROBABLY make sure you can pick it up.

And THE most important test of all-making sure it has a belly button like yours..thus the first ever photographed "belly button comparison test."

And that's how you properly test a pumpkin to see if it's right for you.
