Pumpkin Patch October 19, 2008

Gavin and I went to the Pumpkin Patch today with our friends Leah, Andi and Leslie and their kids, husbands, nieces, nephews, grandkids and such!  We had so much fun!  I am glad that we were able to get together and do this ladies!!!! Gavin had a blast!!!  He was a little sleepy at first, but brightened up on the hayride to the pumpkin patch.  He loved walking around looking for pumpkins and trying to pick them up!  After we found a pumpkin, we went back up to the farm, and looked at the animals.  Gavin petted the goat and the donkey, and tried to feed the goat!  He was not at all scared of them.  He just walked right up to them and started petting.  He is definitely an animal lover!  next, we spent some time on the playgrounds that they had there.  We even ran into our friends Emily, Jeff and Ethan while we were there.  It was good to see you guys too!  Gavin is going to paint his pumpkin sometime this week.  So, there will be more pictures to come.  Here are the pictures that I took today in a slideshow.  My good friend Leslie also got some great shots of Gavin!  Once she gets hers all edited and posted on her smugmug site, I will let you know.  Enjoy!

Update:  the pics are up on Leslie’s site!  Here is the link

Climbing Boy October 18, 2008

Gavin has officially entered the climbing phase!!!  He likes to try and climb on everything.  He even strategizes his climbs.  The other night, we had a diaper box in the front.  Well, he went over and played with it for a bit.  Then, he slid it all the way across the room to the sofa and used it to help him get up on the couch. Here are some pictures that I took of his climbing adventures this morning.  We haven’t had too many bumps and bruises yet, but I am sure that they are coming!









The diaper box also makes a good car!

Here are just a couple of pictures of Gavin when he was talking on the phone to my sister a little while ago.  I thought they were too cute to not share.
