Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend we made our trip up to see the Tuckers and do our annual visit to the Pumpkin Patch.

They have everything for a great family day together. We started off taking pictures with different pumpkins and decorations then we had the daddys take the big kids into the inflatable playground to jump around and slide. Then it was time for lunch, roasted corn on the cob dripping in butter :P

After lunch we headed to the petting zoo where Alan really liked the pig.

After the petting zoo it was time for pony rides and both Madison and Alan rode without help this year!!! Then we checked out the authentic TeePees and got our tickets for the big hay ride to the actual pumpkin patch.

Alan and Daddy went way far out to find the pumpkins.

Fire Station

We had the best time on Friday when Alan, Eddie and I went to the fire station downtown. Here are Alan and Eddie exploring the fire truck.

CRASH

Today was a busy day and I really, really, really did NOT need to crash into another driver in a parking lot. Whether I needed to or not it happened. We were at the Dollar Tree and I didn't see this other car and she didn't see that I was backing up until it was too late.

Her car doesn't look nearly as bad and thankfully we were both only going 2mph and no one got hurt.

Catching Up

Okay so I know most people who blog do so on a somewhat regular basis. Well, that WAS my intent, but somehow there aren't enough hours in the day!!! September was a very busy month, in fact I'm not really sure where it went to. We left Sept. 10th to spend a little over a week in Mississippi where our Uncle Tom married our newest Aunt Augusta on Sept. 16th. All 5 of Daniel's siblings were there for the big event making the 6 pack complete. It was so nice to see EVERYONE and to catch up. Daniel was a groomsman and Alan was ring bearer and the wedding was beautiful.

Aunt Kristine made the long ride home with us to spend 2 weeks playing with the boys and hanging out. That was the fastest 2 weeks ever. I can't believe we didn't even make it to the beach!!! We did make some progress on scanning family pictures (there are still plenty to be scanned) and did some stampin' of course.

That pretty much brings us to this week. Daniel is TDY for the week so the boys and I are spending the week visiting all our friends in Alabama. It feels good to be "home".

I hope to be updating our family web site with pictures from the last couple months of activities. We are also happy to report that potty training is going extremely well. We had 2 accidents in Mississippi and just one since we returned. All 3 were due to communication problems so I think we are well on our way. Now if we could just get someone to sanitize all the public restrooms in our routes of travel we would be all set :)
