Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

With Halloween quickly approaching, we decided that we'd hop in the car and head over to Wyoming to check out the most popular pumpkin patch. We're glad we did!!

Lily got to play in a hay maze--where she could run to her heart's content and not escape! A parent's dream! :)

Case in point: Sprinting from Daddy

Oh! A tunnel...she loved that. She could fit through it--we couldn't.
 Daddy had to sprint over the bales to catch her!

And, naturally, she spent much time pick up sticks, eating hay and corn stalks, and just getting generally dirty. As much as this girl loves "bracets" and "neckaces," she sure does love dirt!

Mmmm, dirt. Better rub it on my face.

She also got to, of course, pick pumpkins! And, she had a GREAT time playing in the "corn" box--it was like a sandbox full of corn kernels. Luckily, she refrained from eating these (amazing, since she LOVES corn) and had a ball interacting with the other kids.

This is the pumpkin she picked. Of course, she *had* to pick it up.

In other news, Lily is talking up a storm!! She is starting to call us "Mommy" and "Daddy" now, instead of "Mama" and "Dada." Super cute. When Brian comes home from work, she runs to the front door and yells "Dad-deeeeeeeee!!!!" the whole way. You should see his face brighten!! I think he's been waiting for that for awhile. :)

I recently took a job selling Dove Chocolate. I am a Dove Chocolate Discoveries Independent Chocolatier--I sell exclusive Dove products and host chocolate tasting parties (can you say yummy job?). My first party will be on Friday--wish me luck! I'm hoping it will be a fun way to meet new people and make a little extra money...we'll see!

I've been feeling guilty about not exposing Lily to more kids...she always seems SO eager to play with them and so curious. So, it's also on my agenda to start meeting other Moms with kids her age and having more play dates...hopefully we'll be able to do that.

Brian is plugging along with this semester. He has a LOT of students, which equals a LOT of grading. I think he'll be especially happy when Christmas break rolls around this year.

That's about all in our world (at least, that I can currently think of)--hope everyone is doing well!
