Fall Fun

I feel like we packed as much as we possibly could into this past weekend. The weather was gorgeous & we had lots of fun family time. We kicked off the weekend by heading to the park for a little playtime before dinner. Palmer insisted on sitting in the very front of the swing & leaning forward, but he sure did love it- I think these smiles prove it!

He also loved watching the water from the pier- he was so focused on the waves and...

... the bark on this tree.

Palmer also enjoyed putting his climbing skills to good use on the playground & quickly found his favorite part- the slide.

Saturday, we headed back to the island for a little pumpkin patch fun. It was a workout for mommy & daddy, but I think Palmer enjoyed it. He went straight for the little pumpkins- they were just his size. He was pretty proud to carry them around.

These next 2 pictures sum up our trip the pumpkin patch pretty well... Palmer thought these pumpkins were balls meant for throwing and climbing/walking on. He didn't see a sea of orange pumpkins before him, he saw a sea of orange balls! So, much of Mike's time was spent trying to prevent these actions:)

Showing mommy his tiny little pumpkin!

We actually spent more on baked goods than we did pumpkins- oops! We haven't given Palmer cake since his birthday party, so I thought it would be fun to give him one of the cupcakes we bought after he finished his lunch. It was pretty entertaining- much like his smash cake, he was slow getting into it, but by the end, he was all business. Aunt Coco, I think we have another cupcake fan in the family:)

A taste from daddy to get started was all it took.
"Hmmm, I think I like this."
"I can't waste the icing on the spider!"
Daddy cut into it to get him started...
... and then he started shoveling...
... and shoveling...
... and shoveling...
... to the very end!
We capped off the weekend with a little sidewalk chalk drawing & wagon ride around the neighborhood.

That's our weekend wrap-up folks:)

Sharing with Daddy

I always save a little bit of brownie batter for daddy... and he decided to share today:) 

"I'm watching & waiting."
"I can open wide daddy."
"That was finger lickin' good!"

Sunday Snapshot : Bubbles in the Bath

"Watcha' doin' mama?"
"Maybe I can catch one."
"Oh, this one is mine, for sure!"
"Oh no, it got me instead!"
"Man, that sure was fun!"
