Pumpkin carving

It’s almost Halloween, so what’s more fun than carving your very first jack-o-lantern? Needless to say you were super excited at first.

That is until we cut the top off and you found the gooey stuff inside. You were definitely not a fan, insisting on using kitchen utensils to get all the insides out.

You finally got brave and stuck your hand in there.

Mommy had to finish the carving all by herself because you found it too “icky.”

Finally, I let you get the paint out and decorate it to your liking. You were pretty proud of our end result!

Zoo Boo 2013

Every year we make it a point to make it to Zoo Boo at the Indianapolis Zoo. This year you were going as a penguin. Mommy worked so hard on your costume, and we thought we had you excited to wear it. You refused to try it on until it was completely finished, and even then we had to do some serious convincing to get you to put it on before we left. Luckily, we got some fairly good pictures at home since you refused to wear it once we got there. Mommy ended up carrying it around all day hoping that you would see other kids dressed up and would want to join in on the fun. Nope, as usual you had a mind of your own and decided it just wasn’t for you. We had a fantastic day even without the costume. Aunt Malena came with us, as well as we met another family that Daddy knows from work who has a little girl as well. By the end of the day, you and Josie were holding hands and having a great time.

“All aboard!” “Da, where are you?!”

Just had to post this super cute vine I made of you today saying “All aboard!” and “Da, where are you?!” We are so excited that you’re finally starting to put words together!

Monroe County Fair and Super Why!

Tonight was kids night at the Monroe County Fair and Super Why was making an appearance for the special night! We were so excited to take you to see them. WTIU Kids was sponsoring the event, and they had several educational booths and shows going on. Your favorite (other than Super Why of course) was the bouncy house. We had a really hard time getting you out of there! You made a cow mask and even got to play in front of a green screen.

Of course, who can go to a county fair and not look at all the 4-H animals?! We quickly learned that your favorite building was the horse barn. We went through that one twice! Their size did not seem to scare you at all, but you were a bit weirded out in the poultry barn.
You seemed to have had a great time tonight, and when we got in the car and asked you if you had a great time you said, “Yeah!” In fact, I think you had such a great time you completely wore yourself out and was asleep by the time we got home.

Big kids park

We decided to kick off our July 4th weekend with a trip to Cascades Park after Daddy got home from work. This was our first time at this park. They have a couple of slides for the little kids, but you decided that those slides just weren’t big enough. You were all about the huge play area with lots of twisty slides and things to climb on. There was even a little play piano built into one of the levels that you thought was so cool! You didn’t care that most of the kids were bigger than you…you just fit right in!
