Pumpkin Patch

Collin and his little buddies Clay and Brady had a great time at the pumpkin patch. There was a train and bumble bee ride that the boys loved! Here are some pictures of our day. My cousin Lisa watches Clay and Brady is her neighbor.  The decorations were great and the boys ran around checking everything out. 

All Aboard!


Let's take these ones...

Arms up!
Ladies first, what a gentleman!

Halloween Time!

I'm a total bargain shopper. So there was no way I was going to pass on this $3 special from TJ Maxx that I found after Halloween last year. I seriously would have purchased it just for the black and white pants and shirt it came with underneath. Not to mention the jack-o-lantern smock to go over. The original face was kinda girly...o.k. 100% girly. I wanted to make it more "boyish" for Collin to wear so I gave him a new face. The jack-o-lantern, not Collin. Ha!  Here is the girly not so scary before jack-o-lantern:
And here is my master felt creation after:
Marths Stewart may not think much of this little project of mine but I am totally proud of the spookyness here!
And obviously Collin loves it because look how cute he is.

Don't you just want to kiss this face?!?
Boo to you on the butt is my favorite part...  But I can't take credit for that since it was already there.
Including the yellow felt for the new face, this whole outfit was $4. Seriously, such a great deal!  My wallet and husband are happy.

Story Time

Tuesday mornings Collin and I go to the library in Fowler for story, song and play time. Collin likes the reading time, loves the song time and can't wait for the play time. They have these boxes full of cars, balls, stacker cups and sheer peek a boo things. This week we did a fun crafts project making halloween bracelets, which Collin kept on for a whole 2 minutes.

The whole thing lasts all of 45 minutes. All the kids help with clean up and then it's home for nap time.  It helps that he is usually asleep before the 5 minute drive home and I just have to move him over to his bed.

Bounce U

Remember a few weeks ago when it actually felt like fall?  It was wet and rainy and the sun was nowhere to be found.  Well I bought a coupon for Bounce U a while back and it was the perfect weather to burn some energy indoors.  I have to wear Collin out somehow and this place was great!  Check out their schedule or to see if there is a Bounce U near you.  It would be a great place for a kids birthday party.  It is very clean!  We wore white socks and they were still white when we left 2 hours later.  That says a lot in my opinion.
Collin was the youngest child there during open bounce time, which is Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30-11:30. The oldest child was around 6. There is a few different areas for the kids to bounce and play. Here are some pictures of Collin having a blast.

Collin had so much fun and we will definitely be back. And if bounce U wants to give me a few free passes for my stellar review, I will gladly accept them! :)
