Fall full of fun

Dear Maya,

So it's been over a week since mommy blogged last, but that's because we've been busy drinking up all the best that autumn has to offer! Pumpkins and parties and cupcakes and costumes and lots and lots of fallen leaves...this post is probably going to be pretty long and very picture-heavy so enjoy it!

Last Thursday the weekend's beautiful forecast kicked in early and our drive to and from grocery shopping gave us a gorgeous view of the fall foliage. When we got home daddy hit the kitchen to make his weekly homemade pizza and told you and mommy to go have some fun at the park while it was still light out.

On Saturday we went to Auntie Rhi's wildly successful 'Haunted Library' night. We arrived early to help set up but everything was pretty much all done. You were really afraid of going anywhere near the dark, smoky, 'haunted' side of the library, but after studying Auntie Rhi in her scary costume for a minute you weren't afraid of her at all. During the event you played the ping pong ball throw game, spun on a swivel chair, ate lots of goodies, and were really very well behaved. You even tried to help everyone clean up afterwards.

On Sunday we enjoyed the day at Merwin Farm. We went on a hay ride around the fields and you helped daddy pick out pumpkins for our house, including a cute small one for you. There were friends and animals to play with and all kinds of yummy snacks to eat, adding up to a great day in your book I'm sure.

Later in the afternoon you had fun riding around on tractors with your buddy Wyatt. He stopped frequently to 'fix' his tires and you just watched him and followed. Our generous friends Charlotte and Steve (and Wyatt) even let you take home this little green ride-on tractor toy you seemed to love so much.

A little birdy told mommy that when we're not around, Wyatt says you are his girlfriend. I'm not sure what you think, but he's given you a couple hugs and kisses before and you didn't seem to mind. This time mommy finally got her camera ready quickly enough to capture you two. How is this for cute?

Well, today is Uncle Matt's birthday so mommy has to go get some things ready. There may be a crazy wintry storm headed our way next week (in October again? really?) but we're still planning to squeeze a lot more fun out of fall. If snow is in store, though, I'm sure you'll enjoy that, too. Love you!

P.S. Your new skills include drawing circles (kind of), jumping (sort of) and playing pretend (feeding us imaginary food from your tricycle basket).
P.P.S. Your new words include: go, circle, tickle, stinky, messy, and "eww!" And when we tried to get you to say 'cucumber' last week you said 'nerd-burger' instead. Hahahahaha!
