Fall Fun

The weather was beautiful this week, and we made sure to enjoy every last minute of it!  Since we moved in to our neighborhood 5 1/2 years ago, more and more kids have moved in.  The boys are just starting to notice all the neighbor kids and play with them.  Too bad we are moving soon and the weather is going to force us all inside...
Another thing we will miss about where we live right now is the new walking trail.  We visit the horses just down the road almost nightly.  Aiden needs to check on them and say "hi and goodnight".  He asks about them as soon as we get home from daycare. 

Once we see the horses, they get to walk home.  This takes double the time to get home.

We take about 5 steps forward and three steps back the whole time home.

It takes so long to get home that even Izzie gets tired!

We have to stop and check every ant hill between the horses and home...

Stop and play trucks... until we finally make it back in the wagon or home before bedtime.

Saturday night we went to some friend's house for a bonfire.  The boys loved watching the big boys, run and play football.

Briggs is great with kids, and Aiden liked being pulled in the wagon!

Two little boys after dad's heart... watching the fire.

On Sunday we met Elle, Missy and Dave at Pleasant Valley to have some fun in the beautiful fall weather.

Everyone climbed the hay pile...

and slid down the slides.

The colors are beautiful!

Under the hay pile there are tunnels.  I was hoping the boys wouldn't go in because I was NOT coming in after them (I get claustrophobic)!


Ashton liked the trains...

While Aiden and Daddy were watching the pumpkin launcher go off.

We could have stayed by the animals all day!  Aiden is fearless, while Ashton sticks tight to Adam or I.

While we walk and see the horses nightly, we don't touch them because they aren't ours... Aiden loved touching the nose and ears on this one.

PUPPIES!  This one, Ashton would go close to the cage.

Baby chickens...


While Aiden could have stayed by the animals and crawled in the cages with them, Ashton went back to the trains.  See someone peeking?

Do we have a future cowboy?

Or two?

After the animals, we made our way to the GIANT sandbox!

Three Pumpkins...

and one tired boy!

Late night at the bonfire and early morning to the pumpkin patch, caught up with Ashton.

Saving the best for last, we ended the day with a hay ride.  Ashton stayed awake for a little of it...  Aiden on the other hand, couldn't get close enough to the tractor.

We couldn't have asked for a better day!  The next time we are out at Pleasant Vally, we will be picking out our Christmas Tree and the colors WILL NOT look like this!

As always, thanks for checking in! We had a busy weekend and ALL are tired.  As for the HOUSE UPDATE we are hoping there is more to update on next week... we changed our lot to a different one in the development due to how our house fit on the first one we had picked out, so we are pushed back a week or two waiting on the perk test.  In the meantime we close on the 25th of October and have a rental to move into for October 1st through January 31st.  Needless to say, the next couple weeks, we will be slowly transitioning from one place to the other!  Let the fun begin.
