Maggie's First Field Trip

Today Maggie and I went to Vollmer Farm in Bunn, NC with her preschool.  What a cool place this was!  It was almost like an amusement park with all of the activities they had to do.  The kids took a short educational tour (fit for a bunch of toddlers), took a hayride, and then got to play, play, play!  Oh, and pick a pumpkin too!  All I can say is Little Miss Independent ran me ragged...

Just a couple of cute shots of her picking out her pumpkin.

They had a baby cow - SOOOOOO Cute!!!!!!!  That's Maggie over there pushing her way to the front of the line.
Here she is bouncing with the big kids:
She was pounding on the thing shouting "More, more, more!".

Another view from the top - looks like she's so high!

This is the "corn crib" - I think that's what it is called.  It's just a giant pile of corn to sit and play in.

After all that fun, she hit up the playground for a bit.  She's into climbing ladders and sliding right now.

This is a cute pic.  I just love baby bottoms (I know I'm strange).  

Sleepy...too much fun was had!

Snack Time!

Last week we had to let go of our dog Sable. We adopted Sable 3 years ago from our neighbor who died suddenly from cancer.  Sable was an old girl whose body just couldn't carry her around any more.  She was a huge German Shepard and Maggie had recently come to ADORE her!  Maggie hasn't seemed to have noticed Sable's absence, but our other dog Dulcie, has seemed a little lonely.  So, today we went outside to play ball and cheer Dulcie up a bit.    Little did I know what fun those two would have.  Maggie sat down to have a snack and when Dulcie came over to hawk the snack, Maggie got a kick out of teasing her with the goldfish.  It made me happy to see her laugh her little butt off, while Dulcie was sniffing and licking her snack bowl.  I know you're thinking "Ick!!", but sometimes you have to just let things go and enjoy the moment!  Here are some fun pics:

Joe's Baptism

On Sunday, Joe was baptized, starting a new journey in his life!  We were so thankful to have our families here to celebrate the day with us.  Joe's Uncle Scott and Auntie Christen are his Godparents.  Here are some photos from the service.
Our Family of Four (still hard to believe!):

A cute one with Scott and Christen, where he is half-smiling:

With our Pastors Dave and Diane:

After the service, we had a party at our favorite park, Blue Jay Point. Here are some scenes from the fun day.

Cowboy Joe

Joe's Auntie Mary Kate passed down her son Will's famous Gymboree cowboy outfit, including boots and a suede jacket (yes, suede on a 3 month old)!  Joe is soon going to outgrow it, so I decided to put him in it today and see if I could get some cute shots.  I was not having success with the camera today, but I got a couple to at least capture the moment.  The boots were way too small, so I had to kind of prop them on his toes - it was tough to keep the little guy from kicking them off.  Thanks MK!  Saddle-up Joe-bo!
   Nice boots!

Not so thrilled about being stuffed in an oversized suede jacket.

What a perfect little this little guy!

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Maggie is our little singer (and drama queen!).  Since she started preschool she's been coming home and singing new songs with lots of hand movements.  We finally realized one of them was Itsy Bitsy Spider.  Here's her hip-hop version with a little drama at the end - apparantly Mommy and Daddy weren't singing it quite right.  Enjoy!
