Adam's First Haircut

Adam's hair was getting long, really long. His little curls were getting matted in the back. It was time for his first haircut! The curls aren't completely gone, but wow what a difference a couple of inches made!

It's getting cold..

Here we are, and it's November, Turkey Day is a few weeks away and I'm REALLy looking forward to everyone coming up (don't let me down! lol). We've been raking up leaves and bracing ourselves for the cold months. It's still pretty with a few warm sunny days here and there. We made playdoh one day and Addie made a monster, Judah made a tadpole.
After a really looong week of Adelaide being sick (I think she's almost over it), we took a drive yesterday just to get out of the house and breathe. We stopped off at our ice cream place and got ice cream, Addie got rainbow, Judah got cookiesncream, Adam shared my banana and Joe's cookie dough.

We drove through Clark State park and stopped to let the kids play for a few minutes, Addie promptly lost her ice cream. =o( But she kept on playing.
So that's a recap of the past couple of weeks, nothing too crazy, just our daily life. lol

Camping, Ice cream and Animals

The weather has been great here, not too awful cold and a few very sunny days. Joe took Judah fishing and camping at a nearby lake, and even though it was windy they both had a blast. They fished and made a fire and roasted hotdogs. Meanwhile, I took Adam over to a friend's house (and on the way stopped off at our favorite ice cream joint for a banana split).

Afterwards, Adelaide and I went shopping and stopped off at Chikfila as well, for a little one-on-one time together. =D

Earlier this week, we had a beautiful day with a high of 77, and since I knew dreary days were coming, I packed us up a lunch, skipped school for the day and headed to the zoo. Man what a relaxing time it was just having fun with the kids..we rode the merry-go-round after eating lunch, playing on the playground and seeing all the animals. Adam absolutely LOVED the carousel and didn't want to get off. We finished off our trip with cotton candy and headed home. Yay for field trips! =oD

Fall Fun

 Fall has been beautiful so far. We've been trying to make every day count before colder weather sets in. A few weeks back I loaded the kids up and we headed to Georgia for our occasional week of family visiting. It's always nice to be with everyone that I miss on a daily basis. You really don't know what you're missing until you move 500 miles away.
 Days were spent visiting family, having fun, eating food, etc. ;o)
 We took a day and went to Rock Ranch, owned by Truitt Cathy (the Chik-fil-a guy). The place was loads of fun! For $12 (we had a coupon) the kids got to do whatever they wanted! Pony rides, corn maze, Tiny Town, little was just an endless supply of fun activities for them! I don't know why we haven't been there sooner!

 Grammy and Poppy's swing, on a beautiful Georgia day!

 When we got back to Indiana we planned a day to go apple picking at Huber's farm. They day was a little windy but it turned out to be a lot of fun! 63 lbs of apples later we were set!
