It seems like it can’t possibly be the middle of October already, but the rain and cold these past few weeks definitely reminds us that Autumn has definitely arrived. It’s becoming a bit more difficult to find fun activities for Max, but we’re doing what we can, with a little help from his friends.
Between Max being sick last weekend and the weather being cold and rainy since then, it has been a long week while we try to find ways to entertain Max indoors.
On Saturday, Max’s school friend, Bailey, had a birthday party at a pumpkin patch. Max was so excited about going to the pumpkin patch and seeing pumpkins and scarecrows. Unfortunately, it rained several inches on Thursday, so it was ridiculously muddy. The temperatures also dropped to the 50s, so we didn’t get to stay too long at the party. We did at least have a little time and fun feeding the animals and looking at the pumpkins.
Owen unfortunately spent the time bundled up in his carseat/stroller, so he didn’t enjoy much of the trip.
Sunday, after hanging out around the house for a bit, we went for ice cream, then had a webchat with Jenn, Ryan, and Emma. The kids are getting more comfortable seeing each other live over the web (instead of in blog videos), but they’re still easily distracted. Max definitely had issues with Owen getting some attention during the chat, so he decided he’d just hang out in Owen’s chair.
It’s crazy to think that Max is 23 months old today and Owen will be one month old on Thursday! Time is passing so quickly now that we have two boys! Jon went back to the office today (he’s been working from home for the last month), so we’ll now have to see how things go in our normal schedule.
Luckily I still have several weeks before I have to go back to work. Hopefully I can get a nice routine going before then, so things go smoothly into the holiday season and beyond. Until then, I’m taking advantage of the “free time” I have to work on things around here, like trying to get a blog post out here and there.
There are quite a few more pictures from the weekend here.
We have a couple of videos to share as well, but I’ll have to get Jon to post those in a separate post this week.
Have a great week, everyone!
