A couple weeks ago the Martinson girls and all the cousins drove down to "Grandpa and Grandma's Lake" and spent a relaxing afternoon there. It is so pretty this time of year and the kids had a lot of fun picking apples and then building a "fort". They came into the house and asked Grandma for a sheet--I doubt she will ever get it back. :-)

On Tuesday we took a field trip to a pumpkin patch. The kids took a wagon ride through a "not so haunted" forest, ran through a hay bale maze (but all the kids thought it was more fun to play tag on top of the hay), they got to pet some animals, and then at the end they got to pick a small pumpkin to take home.
A funny story...hopefully Jill won't mind if I tell you. :-) If you notice in the pictures there was a "sandbox" that was filled with corn. Chloe and Carly enjoyed playing with it. Over at the petting zoo area there was a place where for a quarter you could buy corn to feed the goats. Well, Carly being the thinker and frugal one like her mom, decided that it would be lots cheaper to just take the corn from the "sandbox" and fill her pockets to feed the goats. She had that cute little grin when she was doing it. Gotta love that smile!!
The kids had such a good time. Sam wanted to make pumpkin pie for "Daddy" but I think this time of year pumpkin in the can is pretty cheap at the store..hopefully I can talk him out of it. :-)

I(we)are a little behind on keeping up with this blog. The first weekend in October we drove down to Kansas City for my cousin Bammer and Heidi's wedding. It was a good time and unfortunately by the time I got out the camera to take pictures of everyone, it was the last night and not everyone got in the pictures. Sorry! I took some pictures of the cousins (and Uncle Dave) playing a "baseball" game with a tennis racket and tennis ball. It was pretty fun to watch and the kids sure seemed to enjoy it. We all stayed with Dan and Kelly which was nice because we were able to visit more than at a hotel.
