The Carving

"Welcome to the place that you can carve a pumpkin. Go!"
Cameron is the sign-maker of the family!

The older boys loved the goopy insides too much!

Ashton just enjoyed stacking the little ones into a tower.

Ethan was the only one who got a big enough one to carve.

Cameron prefered to get several little ones to draw on.

Pumpkin cookies for dessert!

The boys celebrated red week at school last week (Say No to Drugs week) and Friday was put something red in your hair day. We picked up some red spray and voila! I guess they both touched it at school and came home with red hands. The first thing Ethan said when he got home was, "I'm taking a shower!" We're gearing up for Halloween Friday! The boys have the day off school so we'll be watching the clock waiting for candy time!

Pumpkin Patch

We went back to Lombardi Ranch on Sunday and picked out some pumpkins. This is the same place that burned last year. We were glad to see it up and running again!

Yes, Cameron misplaced his glasses again this week but I'm happy to report they've been found!

Swinging into fall

We have officially entered fall here. It brings cool nights and warm days. It's a nice change from the heat. It also bring the Santa Ana winds and fire season. We visited the park Sunday and I got some swing photos.

Aquarium of the Pacific

We went to Long Beach on Friday and visited the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was fun! We had lots of fun looking at all the fish and other ocean life. While the trip there took us only an hour, the trip home in Friday evening traffic took us 2 1/2 hours!! Lots of togetherness!! Here are some highlights....

Ashton loved watching the sea lions swim, he just thought they were sharks. "Hi sharks" over and over again.
