Pumpkin Patching

Esmé in the kids' hay maze

Here we are in the corn maze. It was...extensive. And once my claustrophobia kicked in, we figured out a way to sneak out the side be done. We went back to the kids' hay maze.

We were the only people there that afternoon, so the lady had to call her father-in-law to come drive us in the hay wagon out to the pumpkin patch. It was worth the wait for him to show up.

The girls loved the ride.

She got her face painted by a ten-year-old. Considering she was ten, I think she did a pretty good job.

Missing Dad

Roo spent a week in Germany at a trade show. We tried to stay busy without him.
We played on the rocks

We played with the dogs.

We missed him!

We met princesses

And stormtroopers

We played at the park

And braced ourselves for cold weather.

California Trip #1 (of 3)

Our annual trip to the Hollywood Bowl for the John William's concert. This time it was sans children.

We saw JJ Abrams in the audience and Roo had the courage to ask for a picture. He was a nice guy.

We spent a day at Disneyland

The churro was Roo's favorite part of the day.

Getting completely soaked on Splash Mountain was Roo's least favorite part of the day. He vowed never to ride Splash Mountain again.

I thought getting soaked was fun.

Our friends introduced us to the best breakfast place ever! Yummy french toast!

This and That

Penny's hair is getting more awesome by the day.
