Shaker Festival & Apple Picking

On Sunday we loaded up the car and headed for Alfred for the Shaker Festival and some apple picking. It was a gorgeous day and we had a lot of fun, buying some fun hair accessories for Caroline, eating some tasty food, waiting in line forever for a balloon hat :) Everyone had a great time and were definitely tired afterwards! With full bellies, we headed up the hill for some apple picking. The trees were already pretty bare at the bottom, but we managed to grab two bags pretty quickly. We've got another trip or two in store for us this season so I think we'll be picking up a basket to nab those higher up apple next time!

Week of 9/7 in Pictures

Last week was a big week since Caroline started back to school and we had two doctor appointments as well. Gramma is here so that definitely helped out with staying home with George while I take Caroline to school. We barely get out of the door on time as it is right now. Caroline has really been struggling with the early mornings and the three days a week now!

Sunday morning snuggles

 Passing the time at the allergist

 Peanut challenge time!
(She did great and we're making progress!)

 Being silly with her new fan from the allergist. 
It's just like Mulan's!! :)

 Angry owl coming right at me!

 I bought this last year thinking it could fit Caroline
and definitely the new baby at some point. 
Umm, it barely fits George already :P

 Playing Duplos together :)

 We needed a family picture for Caroline's school project. 
Sadly, we had none so Gramma snapped a picture of us. 

 George being silly with Gramma at his eye appointment

 Big dilated eyes :)

 George loving on Caroline Bear

Sadly, I think this was only George's 
second time in the swing this summer!

Saturday was rainy, but Daddy promised Caroline some outside time, 
not the best weather for scootering, but she does look cute!

First Day of Pre-K!

Caroline's first day of Pre-K and second year of pre-school was Monday, the 8th and she was pretty excited for it. She had been talking about it since school let out, granted the morning of she wanted to push it off a day so she could sleep in ;) Sorry kiddo, you're a Monkey now so you go three days a week!

She has grown so much since last year. You can check out that post here. She has grown into such a sweet, kind, beautiful little girl who is such a smartie. We can't wait to see what she learns this year!

Who is this big kid? :)

 Saying, "Good bye" to George

 Could just squeeze her!!

Week of 8/31 in Pictures

Sorry about the delay here, but it's been very busy with the start of the school year, doctor appointments, blog work, Gramma's visit and fun activities! So, the next few days will be playing catch up again!

 Hanging out at the park

 Family trip to Big Daddy's 
Caroline has been good to us with all of those stars she 
is earning and our trips to get ice cream!

 George's naps were not cooperating, 
but Caroline and I got to go to the beach on what would turn out
to be one of the last warm days. 
The beach was beautiful and quiet since everyone else had already
gone back to school. 
We missed George and Gramma, but it was nice with just the two of us as well

 Caroline's octopus! 

Stefan's castle with the thorns all around it
Sleeping Beauty reference!

Labor Day

For Labor Day, we stayed at home and relaxed. Took advantage of the extra day off from work and got some things done around the house and enjoyed some outside time. This is Alan's last holiday day off until Thanksgiving so we wanted to make the most of it! It was a good day and we finished it off with a dip in the pool before dinner, a yummy summer dinner filled with veggies from our garden, and then some S'mores!

 Caroline and Daddy doing some raking while George and I chilled in the tent

 I guess I'll be getting good at getting grass stains out!
