A bit of Fall.....

Last night we met Eric's parents at the Farmstead here in Meridian. Aspen was in heaven; there was so much for her to do! We could have spent hours there, but before too long it was bedtime.

The first thing Aspen did was jump her way to paradise. She could have been on this thing all night, and eventually we had to drag her away to something else: the cow train ride, which she did again and again, all by herself.
It was great; we adults just hung out and enjoyed the scenery while she did her thing. Usually when I take her to the park or a play area, I still have to follow her around and help her with the toys, etc. But here she was able to play all on her own, and I enjoyed every minute too!
We finished the night with a hayride, which lasted forever. We didn't realize how long it would last, but it was still fun.
Poor Aspen didn't want to leave.

On another note, Aspen and I decorated the house last week for Fall, and it was a lot of fun. I have to say that having a fireplace with a deep mantle to decorate is probably my favorite thing in our house. Happy Halloween!

This looks so fun! Aspen is so cute, and of course getting big. Also, your trip to Boston looks like it was amazing. So fun for you to get to go together, especially before the baby. It is so beautiful out there.

Independent play is the best! Especially with a new baby on the way! And I love your Halloween decorations!

We love that place! We had to drag Brenna away kicking and screaming. :) She is still carrying around the 10 cent pumpkin she picked out.

What a fun outing! And I love the way you decorate. I wish I had a mantle to decorate. In fact, I wish I had a fireplace, too; and a house to put them both in:)! But, seriuosly, great job. I'm glad yu brought back the birds!
