In late September, Jim and I took Jack to Pumpkinland while his brothers napped at Nana and Papa's house.  Jim and Jack braved the dark tunnels.
Getting taller every year...
Jim and I both went down the big slide.

Jack showed us how it should be done.
The zipline is always a favorite.
A few weeks later, I took Patrick and Charlie to meet some friends at the other Pumpkinland while Jim was at work and Jack was at school.

Patrick liked to climb the big towers.
So big!
Charlie tried to ride the John Deere tricycle.

We went on a hay ride.
Patrick loved the big slide and could do it all by himself!

Patrick is impressing Eden with his strength.

This cutie is visiting us from Australia right now.  She is ADORABLE and we are loving every minute of our time with her!  She is loving the visit so much she doesn't want to close her eyes for a moment.

Trip to the Capital

Jack had a Friday in September off school.  My friend Sarah and I decided to take our 5 kids to Jefferson City to visit their good friend Allison.  Jack, Truman, and Allison all went to preschool together for 2 years, but don't get to see each other much anymore (Allison moved to Jefferson City and they all go to different schools now).  So, after school on Thursday we packed the minvan and began our overnight adventure!  We had so much fun playing with this fairy princess:
And her super-cute baby brother:
Patrick especially enjoyed playing with the baby toys.
He got into the exersaucer all by himself (several times).
I didn't take too many pictures, but here is the motley crew.
