This is intense bath taking. I guess if you move fast enough, the dirt just slides off.
We took Grayson to his first real pumpkin patch today. It was the perfect fall weather for a few hours of fun outside. They had lots of farm animals, a pig race, hay maze, playgrounds, pumpkins aplenty, and freshly grilled corn on the cob. We picked out pumpkins for each of us.
Grayson loved this really bumpy pumpkin

I am going to start trying my hardest to use coupons to save a little money. So, today I went shopping with my little coupon organizer and list. With the $12 in coupons I had for 6 boxes of cereal, I got them for just $1.32 per box. Not too bad for my first go at this.
I continue to talk about how observant Grayson is and how quickly he is learning things. This is the latest. He knows exactly what to do with the nasal aspirator. Hmm. . .I guess it's been used on him quite a bit. Sorry, this picture isn't the best.
Adam took Grayson to a touch-a-truck at a construction company open house this morning. There were lots of big trucks to sit in, a ride through a rock quarry, and Grayson got to dig for gems in "rock dust". He found four.
Then he went to his first friend birthday party. All of the children were supposed to wear their Halloween costumes for cute pictures. Adam said once he got used to it, he forgot he was dressed like a chicken. He really liked this tricycle.
So, I mentioned yesterday that I put Adam in charge of the camera for the weekend since there were going to be some fun activities. After multiple reminders to grab it, it was forgotten for both big adventures. Fortunately, they ran into several people from church at the touch-a-truck and the picture at top was taken by someone else and he took the pic at the party with his phone. I hope to see more pics from the party from someone who was taking a lot. I guess Adam is not embracing this Project 365 blog as seriously as I am.
When Mommy's away, the boys will play! I went away for the weekend today and Adam went on a little shopping spree. I left the camera with him for the weekend to capture everything and I see that he is trying to make it look like this is Grayson's new toy. Friends, do not be fooled. Grayson had NOTHING to do with this purchase!
Today, I will be demonstrating how you are not supposed to sit in your carseat. I know it is safer to stay in my harness, but I got frustrated and wiggled out. Now if I can just figure out how to get out of the bottom half.
And becuase I am a big boy now, I am eating my first whole carrot.
Today after Renew, the mommy group I am in, we had a picnic at the park. With all that has been going on this week, I forgot all about it and had no lunch for either of us. But we decided to go because of the free custard for dessert!! So, we stopped at McDonalds for a happy meal to take as our picnic lunch. What a treat!
Grayson eventually found the water source and quickly learned how to turn it on. Within minutes he had attracted quite the crowd of little boys all ready to get soaking wet.
Thank you, Grayson!!
The sound of this drill is music to my ears. Finally, all the cabinets in the kitchen are getting Grayson-proofed. I am sure going to enjoy not picking up dishes every day. Grayson, on the other hand, is not going to know what hit him.
