Hello...

Hope you're doing well. I had great intentions of blogging more, but it just hasn't happened.
 
Here's a quick little photo that I snapped a couple days ago of the boys. They like to sit in the rocking chair together and rock.
 
I'm trying to finish putting together M's Halloween Costume. He LOVES the cartoon Curious George, so he is going to be The Man in the Yellow Hat & S is going to be Curious George.
 
Have a wonderful week!

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday we took the boys and visited Roloff Farms. Years ago, Rob & I went with some friends and had a lot of fun, so we decided to take the kids there. You may have seen the television show, Little People, Big World, on TLC. Well, this is the place we were at.
 
It was a beautiful day!
 
The wagon ride took us on a tour of the property and different attractions.
 
Matt Roloff came driving by us while we were on the tour.
 
I love how Maximus is resting his arm on Papa. 
 
Santino was amused by the petting zoo. He had a huge smile on his face.
 
Maximus, on the other hand, was a little more tentative.
 
But, in the bounce house, Maximus was giggling and jumping like crazy. So much so, that he fell out through the little doorway (where the blond hair boy is in the background). Thankfully he didn't get hurt though!
 
The slide was a hit as well.
 
We went through a corn maze and managed not to get too lost.
 
And got someone to take our picture in the BIG CHAIR!
 
The kids enjoyed roaming around on the pumpkin patch...
 
and we would have stayed longer to check out some of the other activities, but they were getting pretty warm from the heat. So, we called it a day.
 
A good day!

Goodbye to Summer...

 
Last week, when my parents were out of town, the boys and I went over to pick some cucumbers from my mom & dad's garden. Their yard is so pretty, so I wanted to share some photos with you.
 
The Japanese anemone reminds me of the beginning of the school year. And I remember as a little girl, always seeing these in September growing in their back yard.
 
Santino was fascinated by all of the colors and textures.
 
This is a very old painted sign that my grandmother, (on my Dad's side), used to have in her yard.
 
This hibiscus has got to be one of the most beautiful flowers ever.
 
Anything purple reminds me of my Mom. She's known for that color.
 
 
It's almost hard to believe that summer has come and gone.
 
We had such a beautiful summer, weather-wise.
 
 
I truly love all of the seasons. But Fall is one of my favorites...

Santino loves to explore and was on the move.
 
Maximus had fun swinging.
 
But, when the two of them are together...Whatever Maximus does, like play drums on the siding...
 
Santino likes to follow suit. 
 
Typical brothers
 
Happy Fall!
What's your favorite season?
