Since the weather’s been super cold this week of Thanksgiving, I’ve been excited to turn my attention Christmas and winter, though the boys and I did sneak in a little Christmas-song listening last week.
Before I post about the holidays, here’s a look back at some of our fall activities in pictures that I haven’t blogged yet.
Grandma Judy came to visit us in October. She took us to the Pumpkin Patch in Mount Pleasant, and we had such fun playing on everything!
A giant pillow/trampoline? Yes, it was awesome.
While we waited for our turn to ride the tractor-pulled wagon, we watched the goats. The wagon ride was the boys’ favorite part!
A giant spider web was just the thing to tempt the boys to climb.
The giant slides captivated them for many quick trips down the slide and long journeys back up the steps.
Lots of old tractors begged for climbers and pictures.
Grandma Judy played many games of Memory with Hamilton.
And the boys loved doing exercises with Grandma Judy!
We loved Grandma Judy’s visit, but we sure did miss Papa Joe!
In November we spent a weekend at the farm, and Pops and Mr. Morgan took the boys to ride a real train. The first glimpse always excites!
But, let’s be honest: The snacks are the best part of any trip especially since Pops always has a fresh supply of “Newnens”!
Pops was as excited as the boys to take the train ride.
The open-air car didn’t deter their enthusiasm, despite the chilly weather.
Thanks for the fun train ride, Pops!
While in Mountville we also enjoyed the fall festival that offered lots of kids’ games, familiar faces, fun, and face-painting.
Though unwilling and timid at first, Hamilton decided it would be OK for him to have his face painted, too, once he saw Collier getting his done.
There was super-cute decor at this fall festival that also was a benefit for a woman in the community who’s suffering with leukemia. They raised over $10,000!
