Apple of Our Eye

Gavin has so many firsts to experience . . . but this one is also another Fall tradition - APPLE PICKING!

Our son may not have the strength to twist the apples off the tree but he sure enjoy the afternoon none the less. Hanging out with his best buddy, Sophia . . . or rather hang on their moms! :-)We all piled in Grandma Dial's Lincoln - Three adults in front, two infant seats and me in back - what a way to travel. James took some pictures in route - I'll post them if he shares. Amazingly we also fit two strollers in the trunk - this car has room to spare. Before kids we never understood how one child could equal a minivan - so for all those we privately mocked, Karl and I publicly apologize. But the biggest question is who amongst the four of us will take one for the group a buy the minivan!?!?
Regardless, we had a great afternoon!

Pumpkin Patch

The last several years we've vertured over to Cal Poly around this time of year for their pumpkins. Often we've joined our friends there, most often it is with James and Kim. Well this past summer we both had a visit from the stork . . . so Gavin and Sophia join in on the fun this year.

The crazy thing is Karl reminded me that last year we said that it is probably more fun to come with kids. No that's not why we had kids, but I do have to admit it was a tad more fun now that we had them along.

We had the kids in slings and carriers, but note to self the wagon will be a necessity for next year's trip. It carries the kids and the pumpkins.

A big thanks to Misie for coming along and carrying pumpkins! We loved having you with us! Next year we need Lucy and David. :-)
