Trying to keep up on this so in five years I can remember (vaguely) what we did five years ago. September, in pictures (in random order)…
Shoe shopper Blaise, with his trademark mismatched socks.
IKEA Laine, counting popsicle makers in Spanish (they mysteriously jumped into her hands). I had no clue she could count in Spanish.
A boy and his dog.
At the dog park (aka toddler park).
Apple picker Laine.
Apple eater Laine.
Apple eater Blaise.
Surprisingly, we did make it home with 30 pounds.
Apple core thief. She held onto it for 10 minutes before I was able to get it out of her clenched jaw.
Apple picking, take two. Not sure Blaise saw the apple tree coming…
Chickens and roosters, oh my.
Sausage machine Laine. Post apple picking gourmet dinner at Denny’s, haha. Kids eat free and I don’t have to cook or do dishes, win! I just overlook the quality of food. =/
Cake! Celebrating a friend’s birthday at Fox Hollow Farms.
Cake (okay, frosting)!
Horse rider Laine.
Terrible picture, one of the last fall water days… winter water gear is out now.
Pushing 96 pounds while running. This was the first time in months and likely the last. Great running partners though!
I had my turn to run, then they had theirs.
Duck spotting after Red Robin with friends. And balloons!
After a busy August, we spent more days at home in September.
One of the many forts we make around here. Note the truck popping through the seat of the chair, secret Hot Wheels entrance.
With 30 pounds of apples, we found things to do. Apple stamping (and snacking).
Sticker book Blaise. I now understand cars I see with insane amounts of stickers on the back windows. We’ll stick to specified books (hopefully).
Science Blaise using his magnifying glass to explore the back.
“Mama, a box! Toys!” To their disappointment, it wasn’t toys.
Blaise found the magnets I put away since they scratch the fridge. Oh well, one scratch or twenty scratches, it’s still scratched and we have a happy fellow.
We brought home rocks from a walk so we decided to paint them. Laine decided to lick them?!
My indoor hopscotch board was not a hit, but ripping it up and making tape balls was. I’ll consider it a success since it kept them entertained and busy.
Science Laine playing with one of Blaise’s birthday gifts. The kid loves her beakers, sleeps with them even.
The finals, thanks to one of our new favorite books.
