A beautiful fall day...

at the pumpkin patch! Our house was supposed to show on Sunday (we are trying to sell, know anyone interested?? {wink} ) so after church we decided to go to the pumpkin patch so that we were out of the house. It was a gorgeous fall day, the sky was blue, the air was warm but not hot, it was perfect! We had so much fun just playing and laughing out in the sun.

WARNING- picture overload

We...

Stood in line...


sat on haybales...


played on tractors...



gazed into the distance... (look at that blue sky- beautiful!)


walked through a corn maze...

laughed...

Wilson County Fair

So this summer we headed to the fair and a good time was had by all. Of course by the end of the day Mama's feet were sore! Boy I'm getting old! We saw rabbits and ducks and chickens. We fed goats and llamas and camels. We rode mules and camels. We watched monkeys racing on the back's of dogs. We ate corn dogs and spiral fries and had yummy sweet tea. We watched Ethan ride the rides and pulled Adalyn in a wagon. And we walked, and walked and stood and then walked some more. It was a great day and I can't wait until next year when Adalyn can join in on the fun a little bit more :)

Here's the evidence of our day at the fair!

ABC's

Adalyn has been working really hard at learning her ABC's. It is the most adorable thing I've ever seen, especially when she gets to the LMNO part!

Here have a look...

Adalyn's 2nd Birthday Party

I know this is a couple of months late but it deserves a post all it's own.

Adalyn's birthday party was at Papa and Cathy's house and we had a wonderful pool party. Adalyn and Ethan are such water babies- they just love to swim- so pool parties were an easy answer.

Adalyn is really into Elmo right now so an Elmo cake was surely the answer! And Elmo on the beach! What could be better for a pool party, right? If you haven't had a pull apart cake from Publix yet you don't know what you are missing. Not only do you not have to cut it like a cake as it is made of cupcakes but the frosting is the best ever!!

Adalyn was certainly happy with her cake! It was really yummy :)








Adalyn also got a lot of great presents. She had been fighting with Ethan most of the summer to ride his tractor but she just couldn't quite fit and reach the peddles. It was the funnies thing to watch her scoot all the way to the end of the seat and push on the peddle which would make her jerk forward a few inches. She would use her hands to hold on to the seat so she couldn't steer so it was good thing she wasn't really going anywhere! Well we decided she needed a ride-on toy all her own so she got her very own four wheeler in her size. It went over pretty well as you can see...


Her other favorite gift was her Elmo restaurant that Papa and Cathy got for her! Did I mention she loves Elmo??? She and Ethan have had a lot of fun playing with this toy.



She also got a couple of really cute outfits from Nick and Ashely and Christie and Richie (Cathy's kids) and an Elmo purse which is right up her alley- she loves all things girlie!!



I was a wonderful day and fun was had by all. Thank you everyone that was able to make it to the party and celebrate this wonderful day with us.

Happy Birthday baby girl- We Love You!!

Wow... Long time, No Blog...

I would like to apologize for my extended (over a month!) absence. I hope that my 2 readers are not overly upset with me {wink} What can I say, I have been busy with 2 little ones and well, one big one!! It seems that we have been on the go so much lately, what with t-ball and softball and other activities we have really ended the summer with a bang! Yes, I said it, ended summer :( As I look out my window at the rain and gloom, watching leaves falling from the trees and sit here wishing my fireplace were burning and I had a cup of hot chocolate to curl up with I realize that summer is indeed gone *sigh* It went to fast but we did enjoy. The good news, for those 2 people that read my blog, is that now that summer is gone, I should be more available to keep you updated on our overly exciting lives! I know, I know, don't let the excitement get the best of you.

And just to leave your mouths watering, here are some pictures from over the summer of those adorable little ones that have I been keeping me away from you all, you know, those 2 readers I have!! He He I'll share stories soon of our adventures along with more pictures!





Until later, sweet friends...
