Halloween Repeat

He had only been asking for two months. 

When is Halloween? 

How much longer until Halloween? 

I had never had a kid anticipating something so desperately and couldn't believe his excitement over something MONTHS away! 

Finally - it was here. Halloween!

Halloween starts with the Township Fall Festival which includes a Halloween Parade... 

The kid willingly put on his dinosaur costume though I saw the urge for last years outfit. 

It didn't help matters that Sid the Science Kid was a Bat on his Halloween episode this year. 

That made being a Bat seems WAY more cool than the dino costume, for sure.

It also didn't help that people kept calling him an alligator at the festival. 

The kid looked with puzzled eyes, like "who are they talking to?" because HE was a dinosaur. 

Two LONG days later... Halloween arrived. 

There was no doubt. 

I am going to be a BAT. 

Again I say? 

Yes, I really really really wanna be a Bat mommy... 

And a bat he was. A darn good one. 

The dinosaur costume will still fit next year. This one won't.

Hurricane Hills!

As usual, we enjoy hitting up Hurricane Hills Farm just up the road... 

We met our friends and their son there and made a whole morning of it! 

First up was the pig race, a new addition to the activities this year. 

We were rooting for Kevin Bacon but I think Britney Spare Ribs pulled ahead at the last moment. 

The kid enjoyed the tractor cow ride this year whereas last year he cried hysterically the whole ride - and yes, i still made him ride it out! :-) 

Hayride out to the pumpkin patch.... 

Of course he didn't want one right in front of him but the one waaayyy over there! 

We went home with two large ones and two itty bitties:) 

But not before taking his turn on the mini tractors  --

And running through the corn maze so fast that he almost got lost - grrr!

Mommy was not. happy. Dad snagged him up and i got a quick pic. 

The only other highlight of the day was that we planned to picnic there for lunch. 

and who forgot that little fact completely - but me. 

Our friends were nice enough to split up their many snacks and lunch and we all shared:)

Tennessee Travels

We have been so darn busy around these parts - I've had no spare time to sit down and log all this fun:) 

Early October, we made a trip to Tennessee, just me and the little guy, to have a long weekend visit with the family... and the scenery! 

We had amazing weather and great company:) 

Abram got to see Deer almost every morning, in my parents front yard... 

And this is the view from their deck - beautifiul!

We ventured over into North Carolina for a morning at the Mast General Store...

Trying on silly hats with Papaw:) 

And we managed to be there for game day too - Notice all the TN Orange?

A break from the game... 

He kept getting mixed up and yelling "Go Steelers!" haha.... 

I think he finally got in a "Go Vols" by the end of it all! 

My personal favorite moments were - reading time with Papaw.... 

and the outdoor time at my mom and dads... 

There's nothing quite like being in the country!
