Lane Farms Pumpkin Patch

Today we met with our play group at Lane Farms to enjoy the holiday fun. I always love visiting the local pumpkin patch each year, they make it so fun for the kids. Unfortunately they didn't have the corn maze open, which is what William always wants to do. But they got to sit on a tractor, play in the hay, visit with the animals and enjoy a hay ride. We then found a hay bale to sit and enjoy our lunch under a big avocado tree... which was also an awesome climbing tree!
Billy had the day off and was able to join us for the fun, so we managed to snap a family picture too! Good day at the pumpkin patch :)

While I was gone...

While the boys and I were in Utah for the week, Billy had some quiet time at home. He was very thoughtful to get a couple projects done that I have been waiting for since we moved in May :)
He trimmed the kitchen cabinet doors so that I can open them individually! They no longer stick and have to be closed a certain way or randomly open on there own. Hooray.
The other project he did was build a platform for the washer and dryer!!! Hooray Hooray! I no longer have to do laundry on my knees :) He did such a great job, even built custom sliding drawers underneath so I can store things easily and get to them easily.
Thank you Billy! Love you so much and am so lucky that you are so talented!

Poor little chins

In the last 2 months, all three boys have now split their chins open! First was William, who jumped into the pool but didn't clear the side and hit his chin. When Billy got home from work, William happened to be sleeping off the tragedy and we were able to super glue his chin while he was asleep. Then came Zachary, who fell on a metal merry go round in a kids gym within the first 5 minutes of us being there. Everything else in the whole room is totally padded and soft except the merry go round, go figure. A week later, Zachary was playing at a park which happened to have one of those hard to find merry go rounds, and guess what happened? Yep, he split his chin right back open on it again! His split was much smaller than Williams and only required a Band-Aid. Last night in the bath, Jameson was standing up and washing himself and being a little too silly. I turned my back for one second to hear a thump thump and the deed was done. Jameson was crying and holding his chin. When I peeled his hand away to look, sure enough it was split open pretty good and blood started oozing out. Billy was extended for the second night in a row until 8, so no where close by to help. I put a Band-Aid on Jameson's chin and this morning while Jameson drank his bottle, Billy and I super glued his little chin.
Having boys is such a bloody fun job ;)
