Happy Halloween 2009!

Halloween is just starting and the boys are already having fun. On Friday the boys dressed up and Nana paraded them around LBCC. Some of the departments really go all out with the decorations. The boys weren't so sure about some of the costumes. Then that night we went with James's parents to a kids party at the church. The boys had a lot of fun just running around with all of the other kids. This morning we had breakfest at nana and papa's. They got to see Josh and Miranda for the first time since they started running around. Tonight we are headed to grandma and grandpa Dodge's house to make halloween cookies and watch the football game. The boys actually seem to like their halloween costumes too. Brock is the Cheetah and Mason is the Tiger. We figured that he should be the tiger since the crazy hair on the costume resembles his crazy hair in real life. Happy Halloween everyone!

Mason's New Do

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to wake up. This is Mason's very impressive hairdo after waking up from his nap.

Another Day Another Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we hit our second pumpkin patch this weekend. We went to Heavenly Farm with Nana Raymond. The boys loved the hay bale maze and the big bins of corn to play in. Obviously they're pretty cheap to entertain. We even road the pumpkin express out to the pumpkin patch. Since this was an organic pumpkin patch you had to sift through the weeds to find the pumpkins which was a little odd. I think we like Lone Pine Farms better. On the way home we hit one of the playgrounds in town so the boys could get their slide fix. Overall they had a pretty fun day.

Lone Pine Farms 2009


It was our first trip to the pumpkin patch today and we had a great time down at Lone Pine Farms. They have a petting zoo there and Brock loved the goats. He our little animal lover and he had so much fun petting the goats noses. Mason was terrified and didn't want anything to do with them. Maybe it was the horns? They also have a playground, corn maze, horse carriage/tractor rides and a great little store that we loaded up on produce at. Our only disappointment was that we didn't get to ride the cow train because they only run it on weekend :( We decided to walk out to the pumpkin patch and we just turned the boys loose to do their thing with the pumpkins. They just had fun running around outside though it was a challenge to keep their rubber boots on that were too big. The boys also got to play on an old Case tractor.. two babies, one steering wheel... not always the best option. We plan to check out another pumpkin patch tomorrow with Nana.

First Dunes Trip

The boys went on their first camping trip to the dunes this weekend. It was the first time that we stayed in the Odd Fellows campground and we loved it! I don't think I want to stay anywhere else again. They boys liked the playground and we loved the dune access from camp. It was a little cold this time of year in Florence but we couldn't have asked for better weather. We had a little rain at night but sunny skies during the day. We drove the truck out onto the beach so that the boys could see the ocean but I don't think that they really cared all that much. Their favorite part was "helping" daddy air down the tires and bouncing over the whoops. They loved playing outside and we got to test out our new rubber boots. Both boys got a chance to ride on the 4-wheelers Mason wanted on any chance he could get but Brock only wanted to ride on the sand. Maybe he didn't like the audience in the campground? Hopefully we'll get several more dune trips in this winter.
