Apple Orchard

We went to the Collegeville Orchards today with our friends Melanie + Jared, and had a GREAT time! The boys loved everything there -- the animals, hay ride, and the pumpkin patch. Parker cut all of the pumpkins right off the vine and pulled them in the wagon. Jared was a bit indecisive about his pumpkin choice! These 2 boys are us mamas are such great friends :) We are so fortunate to have them live RIGHT next door to us!!!

Happy Fall!

blog post challenge!

My sister officially told me that I am terrible at keeping my blog up to date. So, it is now my new goal to make a post once a week to prove her wrong!

There are no rules with this challenge. Posting more than 1x per week does not categorize me as an "over achiever". Photos are not required. There is no prize or reward for successful completion of this challenge.

Let it begin!!!

Wedding Weekend

We are heading to Sioux Falls for Tiffany & Barry's wedding this weekend :) Looking forward to fun with family!

And...since I never really post pictures of just "me"...here's one for viewing pleasure. This is at a fabulous Italian Resturant in STC called Mi Famiglia - they had an awesome band, the Bella Diva's. Photo is of my good friends Melanie + Bridget :)

Labor Day Weekend

Parker is so excited to have an extra "home day" ths weekend -- we are hanging out at home together. And not doing anything and loving it!

We put up the Halloween decor today -- and already have Parker's costume. He's been wearing it around the house alot. He told me to promise and keep it a secret what he is going to be.

We got some yummy sweet corn + watermelon at the Farmer's Market this afternoon. It sure made for a yummy supper :)

Tonight we are having snuggle party on the couch - one of Parker's all time favorite things to do! He picked out the Chronicles of Narnia movie and we are "snuggled" up on the couch and relaxing. He actually told me that he wanted to relax today - I had to ask him twice what he meant by that. It went something like "Mommy, how about if we just go in and do relaxing?". Too cute. Apparently I must say that alot? And we are doing alof of RELAXING this weekend. Love it. Love our time together. Love all of the conversations that we have together. Love my Parker boy!
