Fall Fun 2014

Fall is my favorite time of year!  Sweaters, crunchy leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes.  What's not to love?  I think we did a pretty good job of taking full advantage of all the season had to offer :)

First, we had fun with Stevie, Lindy, Ella, and Luke..

First ever face painting.  He picked a dolphin.
balloon animals!
Wagon rides.
Carriage rides too.

A few weeks later, we went on the annual fall camping trip.  Benny continues to get anxious about sleeping away from home.  The first day, he asked me about a billion times if he could go home.  However, by day 2, he seemed to settle in and slept better.

Someday we'll have to tell him that camping doesn't typically involve cabins with hot tubs...

Or lodges with swimming pools....

I might be slightly biased, but she is just a beauty!

Next on the fall agenda was Halloween.  Nana and Papa left for Florida a week or so before Halloween, so we gave them a sneak preview of the costumes...
Nana's favorite elephant.

 Papa's favorite duck!
The Saturday before Halloween we always go to Aron and Annie's Halloween party.  We spent the morning at my parent's house.  Benny made sure the chickens were well fed that day. 
 Lots of  kids at the party!
 A herd of running trick or treaters.

On Oct. 31, we went to Lucas' house for dinner and for trick-or-treating.  (Lucas is Benny's friend.  We do BSF together and periodically have playdates together.)  It was a great evening!  That morning, we met Grammie and Grampie at McDonald's for breakfast.  This video is a testimony that Claire had a happy 1st Halloween :)
