Pumpkin Farm

This year we drove out to Fog Willow Farms, a pumpkin patch in Wilton.  It was such a nice ride in the country and Joseph had a blast yelling and pointing out all of the cows and horses along the way.  The pumpkin patch has a petting zoo, where Joseph got to pet the little pygmy goats, they were so cute!  The farm has all sorts of animals, a huge pond, a giant haystack for kids to climb and even tractor rides.  Unlike some of the other pumpkin patches we’ve been to, this one felt really family oriented and owned.  We look forward to going again and making that our annual pumpkin patch trip.

Creepy Cupcakes

I made these super cute skeleton cupcakes last weekend that I had found online.  They were a little time consuming, but very easy to do and came out so spooky!  Everything was edible except for the backbone (lollipop stick.)  Joseph loved them.

 Here he is dissecting the serious!

Splishin' and Splashin'

Last Summer 09' we signed Joseph up for swimming lessons at the Aquatic Center near our house.  It was nice to see him learn the basics in the pool.  This year we did not sign him up, and it became a challenge for us to get him in ANY pool.  We tried at Grandma's house, and we ended up going swimming, while Grandma and Joseph ran around.  Finally towards the end of Summer, we finally convinced him to get into the water, well Daddy did!  Honestly I think the majority had to do with the fact that the water was cold, not anything like bathtime which he loves.  Pool time became a group effort, and unlike before it finally worked!  Mind you, the pool sat for three months before Joseph finally used it.  Next year, we definitely will be doing a couple rounds of swimming lessons!


San Francisco

We wanted to do something low key for our anniversary, so we decided to go the San Francisco for the day!

It was such a beautiful day, a little chilly though.  We walked around the Piers, looked at the sea lions, ate at Bubba Gump's.  All in all we had a great day just the two of us.
