Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!! Ty was a little solider this year for Halloween. We thought this would be a great way to show our love and support for my twin brother who is serving in the Army plus he just looks so darn cute in it! Ty was VERY into wanting to try and eat the candy this year. He would even try and eat the candy through the wrapper! I took him took him to a few houses and he would walk up and say "dees" for his please and take a piece of candy. So cute. Hopefully next year we'll get the "trick or treat" haha.

Here is Ty checking out the stash last year as a dragon (he looks so little!!)........
Here is Maggie and Ty checking out the stash this year..

There is a new trail behind Helder Park that we have been walking and riding our bikes on almost daily the last few weeks. It is so peaceful and we just had to get some pictures with the beautiful Fall colors!
I love this picture. We don't have trees in our yard and it was the first time I'd seen Ty play with leaves. He loved them!

Ty's 1st fort!

While I was busy painting in the master bedroom, this is what the boys were up to.... building Ty's first fort!

Ty loved sitting on all the chairs and watching Nate set up the fort

The fort.....

Ty loved it! I think there will be more fort building in our future!

Pumpkin Patch

It was a little bit chilly Saturday morning, but the the sun was shining and we decided to head to Post Family Farms to get our pumpkins (and donuts of course!). First stop.... feeding the goats! Ty actually really liked feeding them! He held out the food for them and everything! wasn't too sure about this guy.....

Second stop..... pumpkin train! I thought he'd cry for sure, but he let us strap him right in and rode the whole time.... As we were about to leave he even kept pointing and saying please, so we let him ride it once again :) He looks like such a big boy!
Third stop.... pumpkin patch! There were so many pumpkins to choose from, it's much nice going earlier in the season!

This is the pumpkin Ty found!

Not pictured..... us getting to our car to put our pumpkins in only to realize we lost our keys SOMEWHERE on the farm...... So the search began.... after about 20 minutes we actually found them!! They had fallen out of Nate's pocket on the hayride, and somehow, someone had seen them!! Thank goodness!! We had so much fun and now we can't wait to carve our pumpkins in a few weeks!!
