Petting Farm

I only had my phone camera, but they still turned out okay. Carl and Chloe had so much fun!!! Poor Connor was sick and had to stay home with daddy.

I guess I should give Connor a haircut. He put this headband on just now... probably to keep his hair out of the way. :)

Pumpkin Patch

This is a family tradition that we have actually stuck with since Carl was one!
Last year Jay Jr. was with us. It was a stormy windy night and it was already dark before Carl got home from work and we could go. I can't remember the date, but we knew it was our last chance to visit a pumpkin patch before halloween. Because of the weather and the time (past 8 o'clock), all of the places that we drove to nearby were closed. We were about to give up and sadly go home when I remembered a pumpkin patch at a church way up in Indiatlantic - 30 minutes away and across the street from the beach. We drove up there and low and behold!... they were open! The wind was blowing so hard off the beach the kids could barely stand up! We miss you Jay!
This year wasn't quite so dramatic. We only had to drive 5 minutes to get to this place that we noticed on the way to Little Carl's soccer fields. The people were super nice and they had a great selection of orange, white, smooth, and bumpy pumkins. They also had some really cool looking gourds.

Sewing again

I haven't sat down at my sewing machine in about 5 years, but all of a sudden I'm sewing again. I found this adoreable pattern and have already made Chloe 2 pairs of pants. Aren't they cute? She got mashed potatoes all over the other pair last night before I could take a picture. Those are plain hot pink.

BTW... I got the pattern at it's my new addiction. I even gave them a spot on my blog (look to the left).

Chloe and her Frog

Chloe loves to catch frogs. The past two mornings she has been up waiting for me (all dressed) when I have come home from my walk at 7 a.m. She knows that she has the best chance of catching one early in the morning. She also knows that the front yard is her best bet because they have all grown wise to coming in our back yard.

Kennedy Space Center

Every year the Kennedy Space Center gives Brevard County residents a day to come for free. Thank you KSC!!! Here are some pics from the fun day we had.

This is Connor underneath the shuttle.

The kids all had to touch the orange fuel tank.
