We don't like to pick

...just one color for our clothes. We like to mix and match and, well, not so much match.

Three Monkeys on a Tire Swing

An evening at the Playground

Last week Manny, Makenzie and I joined McKayla, Kristian and Christine at the Abe Lincoln playground.

The kids had a lot of fun and McKayla used it as a teaching moment.

There were four boys that were about 10 years old trying to play hopscotch. McKayla decided to take matters into her own hands and show them how to play. They were surprisingly happy that 2 four year olds and an almost three year old decided to show them how to play a game.

McKayla made sure that everyone followed the rules and that everyone had a turn.

At the end of the evening, Kristian ran up to Kenzie and tried to give her a kiss goodbye. Kenzie apparently wasn't interested in Kristian's affection:

"Kenzie, I kiss you!"

What do you think Makenzie's favorite color is?

Can you guess?

Manny and his prize

Manny entered a Halloween Coloring Contest at Paradis Shop 'n Save and he won first prize! He was so excited to go in and get his prize.

On the way into the grocery store he turned to Makenzie and said, "I'm going to split my prize with you Kenzie". I was so proud.

Manny and Kenzie with Manny's prize: crayons, coloring books, movie passes, juice boxes, crackers, and of course, candy:

I found this skeleton online and cut out the different bones for Manny to put together:

Pre-Halloween Party at MyGym

We joined Roman and Reed for an evening at MyGym for a Halloween Party.

The kids had fun listening to the stories, songs, and playing on all the equipment.

Rolling around:

Playing in the Leaves!

Who needs snow when you can slide down the hill into a pile of leaves?

Having a "leaves fight" (as Manny says) with Grammy:

Visit to the Farm (part two)

Manny, Makenzie and I headed back to the Farm so that we could do the Corn Maze.

Of course, we fed the goats again:

A Visit to the Farm

We went to the Treworgy Farm as a family. We checked the weather and it was supposed to rain, so we decided we would just go for as long as it wasn't raining.

We took a tractor ride:

We fed the goats:

We picked pumpkins:

And then we had to go home because it was raining.
