Halloween 2009

Eli the pirate in front of the fireplace at Uncle Wayne and Aunt Regina's house, our first stop of the evening.

Then over to Grandma and Papa Tony's house.


Asa decided to take his costume off for a bit.

Asa all tuckered out from all the fun.

We met up with Uncle Jim and Aunt Michelle at Granny and Grandpa's place and headed to McDonald's where Uncle Chad works from there.
Princess Skylar.

Ballerina Claudia.

Pumpkin Jadon.

Boo at the Zoo - Potter Park Zoo

Asa and Eli enjoying some of the treats they were handing out as we walked around the zoo.


I loved seeing the fall colors in the background behind the animals.

My boys like the little face cutouts that we have been finding different places.




More animals with fall colors behind them. So pretty.


Walking back to the car, the boys enjoyed playing in the leaves.

Being like Daddy

Meeting Baby Maddy


First Asa got to hold her.

Then Eli took his turn.

Then they both decided to rearrange the table decorations. I told Kirk it was practice for when Maddy started to do that.

Johnson's Giant Pumpkin Farm - Part 2

After our snack break, the boys enjoyed playing on the little bridge that spanned a small little flower garden.




Chris told the boys if they could lift the pumpkin, we would buy it. Man did they go to town trying to find one they could lift.

The squash weighed 521 lbs.

Johnson's Giant Pumpkin Farm - Part 1


Going through the corn maze at the farm.








Here is a picture of the layout of the maze. I highlighted all of the trails that we took.

Trisha and Asa went over to check out the teepee.

We saw Clifford.

And got to see how tall each of the boys were, although Asa didn't cooperate very well.


Then we saw Elmo and the gang from Sesame Street.


We almost lost Eli in the pumpkin patch.

Back to the car for a snack break and to warm up a bit.
