Pumpkin Picking

Last Sunday we went to a farm in our area. It's obvious that Asher and Piper have a mixture of Nate's and my personalities. One part that is clearly from me is their need to be around friends constantly. Asher asks every day what friends he can see. They both had fun riding with their friends on the hay ride.
The first place the hayride took us to was a corn maze. It was a little beaten down since we have had so much rain lately. Asher loved running through it.
Piper was a little pokey so we were the only ones who didn't make it to the flag.
The next part of the hayride took us to the pumpkin patch. We had to convince Asher that he didn't really want to rotten ones.

After we got home Nate and Asher were both so tired they fell asleep on the couch.

Fall Beach Day

Last weekend we had a beach day. October is always our favorite month to go to the beach. It's nice weather and there are no tourists. Piper had a lot of fun playing around in the sand.

Asher loved chasing the waves with Nate. The water is still pretty warm and they had fun getting their feet wet. Someone in the family (I won't say who) loves to eat at Five Guys Burgers, so that's where we always eat lunch when we come to the beach.

New Friends

Lately Asher and Piper have both been receiving new attention. Last night I had a youth leaders meeting and Piper came with me. Our youth pastor has three boys and they all love Piper. The oldest drew this picture of Piper and I thought it was so cute. Asher's preschool teachers also informed me that he is quite popular with some of the little girls in his class. There is one girl in particular who wants to sit next to Asher every day. Her mom informed me that every day she begins her stories with "My best friend Asher". It's so much fun to watch my kids' interactions with their friends.

Rainy Days

We had a lot of rainy days this week. Piper didn't mind so much and started each day by making phone calls.
On Thursday I had to tell Asher that school was cancelled. He did not take the news well. I had to be creative, so we decided to make a fort. He loved it, and spent the morning playing inside it. He also instilled a no pants rule in the fort.
Piper had fun crawling around inside as well.
