Glorious fall is here! This is by far my favorite season! The cooler weather, beautiful fall colors, and all the family fun! I pulled out some of the boys fall outfits for church and this one of my favorites! They are both wearing matching bow ties! Super cute!! It was a battle getting Beckett to wear it, but you can bribe this kid to do anything with a little chocolate :)
I am always the one behind the camera, so I never have any pictures with my children. Greg is not very good taking pictures and my kids were not in the mood to cooperate. This was the best we got...
Our fall fun started with a barnyard smore's party for Jackson's preschool class at the Foster's. There was farm animals, hot dogs for the kids, chilli for the adults, and of course, smore's! The kids had a blast!! Here is Beckett touching the chicken. Jackson mostly just played with the kids and had very little interest in the animals, but Beckett loved them!
Time for some smore's. My kids love making them but neither really like eating them. I am not sure why, but oh well!
We had big plans to rent a cabin with a bunch of friends and go apple picking one day and the pumpkin patch the next. I guess everyone else had the same plans because we could not find 1 cabin available!! Greg still took that Friday off and we decided to head to Mercier to go apple picking. We almost had a huge fail! After driving for 2 hours, we get to the orchards only to find out that they only do u-pick on Saturdays and Sundays. Disaster! Thank goodness for the internet because I wa able to find another orchard that did. Whew!!
This is pretty typical for Beckett and photos. He has all of a sudden decided he does not want his picture taken!
Jackson, on the other hand, preferred to climb up in the trees to get the apples. The week of school before we went was Johnny Applseed day and Jackson was able to try all sorts of apples. We found out that Golden Delicious are his favorite. What luck that this was one of the varieties at this orchard that was ready to pick!
I tried to get Beckett to take a picture with me, but he was not having it! Jackson accomadated me :)
In other news, Jackson is doing awesome in baseball! He earned his second game ball this season! He caught a pop fly at second and then tagged the runner for a double play! It was AWESOME! His team is now in the third round in the tournament and looking strong! Jackson had made 2 outs by stopping the ball at second and then throwing the ball to first to get the runner out. So proud of him! The part that makes me the happiest is he loves it. As soon as daddy gets home. he wants to practice hitting, throwing, and catching. We have had to change sides with his hitting because he is consistenly hitting them over the fence!! He has improved so much this season! He has his third tournament game tonight. Go Royals!!
