Boating Adventure

We had an impromptu opportunity to join Uncle John and Aunt Michelle on their new boat on the St. Croix River, this boat has been a dream of Uncle John's for a long time and after all the fun Andrew had he made add it to his list of dreams too! Andrew especially loved going down into the cabin area because it was like having his own play house on board...it was a gorgeous Fall day and we are SO appreciative to John and Michelle for sharing this fun adventure with us...we hope we will be invited back again next summer (hint, hint!) I think you will enjoy the goofy pic that Andrew took of Uncle John too!

Carving Pumpkins!

Well the time has come to carve those amazingly huge pumpkins...and here is how they turned out. Andrew enjoyed sorting out the seeds from the rest of the slimy center so that we could try and grow pumpkins in Daddy's garden next summer!

Apple Orchard

It's that time of year again...and we have so far every year gone to an apple orchard and this year was definitely my favorite trip because Andrew was VERY involved in the picking of the apples and enjoyed the entire visit! We had a wonderful trip as a family and Andrew was thrilled with his apple choices! We have had alot of fun making apple crisp, apple bars and just enjoying them fresh!

Pumpkin Fun!

This year Andrew is definitely more into the Fall themes including the fun of picking out pumpkins, which was a special treat for us this year because our friends who great amazing pumpkins in their garden allowed us to come pick some out...as you can see the kids had a blast and the pumpkins are HUGE! What fun they will be to carve and decorate the front of the house with!
