More Fall Fun - 2013

As we do every year, we've been making the most out of the Fall season.

Evan took Marino on his annual school field trip to Butler's Orchard

Gramma came to visit and she and Marino had a blast. 

We went apple picking at Homestead Farm. The apples we got were so delicious. We used every single one! It was a rainy day, so we were prepared for the mud. 

More Fall fun coming soon!

5 on Friday

As always, here are 5 special reasons I am loving my boy this week:

5.  At McDonald's playplace the other night, Marino asked an older girl, "Can you chase us and pretend to kiss us?" I shut that game down quick!

4. Conversation with Marino recently:
"Mommy, I want a baby sister and a baby brother"
Me:  "I can't have any more babies, honey."
"Well, just get someone to have a baby and give it to you."

3.  In the car the other day, Marino and his friend Jace kept telling each other, "Stop acting like that, you're giving me a headache." I wonder where they would have heard such a thing??

2.  We had to cut down a tree in our front lawn (the roots were growing into our house) and Marino was really concerned the Lorax was going to come. He kept looking out the window for him.

1. I ran a Ragnar relay a couple weeks ago and Marino was very into it. He and Evan came to visit us at one the exchanges and he asked to join our team and then posed us for some awesome pictures.

A few days later, he put on this headband and said "Say Ragnar!"

Cox Farms 2013

Yay! It's Fall, my favorite time of the year! This weekend, Jen and I met up with the kids at Cox Farms in Virginia. We hadn't been in a couple years and it was even more fun this year, since the kids are more independent but equally enthusiastic. 

Gosh, I love these three kids! 

This place has THE BEST hayride. It ends with a dance party complete with strobe lights. Marino immediately wanted to go again. 

Monster feet

Here Marino is saying, "Mommy, I reached inside his costume and felt his neck. There's a human in there."
Poor bunny!

The three amigos

Fun, fun, fun! Love Fall and these kids!
