Costumes, Pumpkins, & Candy, Oh My

Down to the final days of October. A school costume parade and party to finish the month.

My little hero.

Special lunch for Halloween party day. Yay Pinterest.

J. is one of Logan's best friends.

Waving during the parade.
M and Logan walking the plank over shark infested waters.

M. and Logan discover the treasure chest. These two can be the best of buds at times.

Getting some tattoos.

I didn't realize he could do this until this moment. I miss so much when he is at school.

I just loved the clouds this day. Looked like a painting.

Catch the pumpkin balloon.

Some Halloween pencil painting.

Off to Trick-or-Treat Main Street. Love this town. It is so kid friendly

We even ran into some buddies.

Testing out some of our other costumes.

Putting up our outside decorations.

All prepped for the Halloween party!

We had to walk across the whole park to get to the party. We just love our neighbors and our neighborhood. It is going to be a fantastic place to grow up.

Obviously so far behind, but I enjoyed reliving these moments. Goodbye October.

Fabulous Fall

Apparently we did a lot during the last week of October. I have so many photos that I will break it up into two posts.

I took Logan to a 3rd pumpkin patch: Galloping Grace Pumpkin Patch.  This one is fantastic if you are there on a non-windy day.  The patch itself is free. You just buy any pumpkins that you want. There are so many fun activities to do. The location is not great, but it is still a ton of fun.

I was the only adult jumping down these hay stacks. I was glad he went on his own a few times.

We spent a lot of time making the perfect pumpkin head.

He loves these ball launchers.

Probably his second favorite activity.

After the pumpkin patch we spent the afternoon at the zoo. Sure do love the Albuquerque Zoo.

Finally saw the baby hippo!

Back at home for some more October crafts.
Frank getting some lap time.

Here we are making alphabet pumpkin smashers.

I got some quilting in.

Logan rode his bike to the track and apparently did some long jumps with dad.

He did offer to do this. I did not force him to blow leaves yet again.

We did some ghost bowling.

Frank enjoyed some time watching the leaves.

These were a few of our favorite books! Then we discovered that Room on the Broom was made into a cartoon. The cartoon is AWESOME! You can see it on Netflix.
