Every year we gear up for the annual Pumpkin Patch trip, for the past 3 or 4 years we have went to Bauman Farms outside of Gervis. It is the coolest place, they have 3 hay mazes, a corn maze, a apple cider barn, a country store, slides and swings in the hay barn, and more.....
We have seen the pumpkin patch in rainy, windy, overcast and now sunny conditions. This year Dominick's feet had grown enough that he needed new rubber boots. Problem is that now that he is wearing a men's 6.5 they aren't cute anymore. So Aaron headed off to Coastal Farm, and they got new boots. As you will see from the pictures, we probably could of held off until the Annual search for the Perfect Christmas Tree to get them. :)
Notice the extreme difference in footwear. Yep, she takes after her mom!
Savannah had a meet on Saturday (10/21/06) in Wood Village. It was a great day! She woke up happy smiling and ready to go. She was that way the whole day. They warmed up, she was smiling, they moved to their first event (floor) she was happy! She performed, she was great. Moved to vault. She did super (even though they had a crappy mushy mat to land on). They moved to bars. And she rocked it! Made that darn squat on she has been struggling with for MONTHS!! They moved to beam. And she blasted off! She was solid, and did her cartwheel like she had been landing it for months, (not like she had been struggling with it for a year like she had been).
I scrapbooking friend of mine does weekely Blog challenges. This weeks is outside/inside. What does it look,sound,feel like outside and inside around you.
It is cool no, it is COLD out today. Out back it is foggy, but there is nothing to see but the swimming pool, so I didn't take a picture of it. The pictures is of our front entery area, the pong mostly. My flowers around out pond don't seem to realize it's fall. They are blooming pretty red blooms, and my gardina plant has two fresh blooms on it. Crazy!
Inside it is the usual. Kids, kids and more kids.
They are pretty good today. Only 2 time outs so far but then again it is only 11am, lunch is in 45 minutes, then nap at 1pm. I can't wait. I have laundry to do, need to pack for a crop on Friday night, and make dinner for Savannah's for when she is at gymanstics for 4 hours tonight. The house has candles lit, I love the smell, and since we dont have a fireplace, candles will have to do. My littlest girl, Meghan, has figured out how to jump up and down in the Exersaucer, and boy is it loud! Now it is mostly clean, need to sweep at nap time.
Game 2 against the HorseFlys (aren't we happy we did not get that team name :) )
Oh ya, and notice the heads almost cut off in picture 2, that Savannah is why I don't let YOU take pictures!!
Dominick moved up to the U-10 level this year, but there is an odd number of teams, so each team had to play a double header one weekend. This was our weekend, which worked out great since Savannah did not have a meet, I got to see BOTH games!!
The weather was great, brisk 50's for the 1st game, and closer to 60 for the second, BUT it was NOT raining!! WOO HOO
They won both games, 4-2 and 3-2. They were long running games, the boys did great! Played their positions, and got more aggressive this time.
So now that school has started, we dont seem to be doing much except homework, gymnastics and soccer. Here is a picture of Dominick's soccer game on the 30th , they won 5 to zero! Way to go Yellow Jackets!
Savannah had another gymanstics meet on the 23rd. She stuck her cartwheel on the beam (which has been a huge challenge for her this past year) YEA!! But I was so excited I did not get a picture of it. So here is a picture on bars, she is rockin' her swings!!
