One morning I left early for a race, I didn't want to wake up Gregg so I left this note with important information on Pete!
A friend of mine was a couple of days over due so we met up one night for a walk.
We ended up walking 4 miles and I have to admit I was having a hard time keeping up with her!
The next morning she texted me to tell me our walk didn't put her into labor so she was going to start canning her tomatoes ... but ... with in the hour she was at the hospital and giving birth!  Maybe there is something to my long desperate walks that do work!
Oh Bodie.
This kid is totally different then Truman and sometimes I find myself needing to take a step back and evaluate my parenting.
Truman begs to go on a bike ride everyday.  One night we rode around all the paths in our neighborhood, it was the most gorgeous night.  I took this shot with my iphone but the sun was shinning so bright I wasn't sure what the picture would turn out like.
We got out the Halloween stuff .. I know, it's a little early but it is Bodie's favorite holiday and we want to celebrate as long as we can.  It makes him so happy!

Tonight the boys were invited to go with some friends out to get slurppies {a favorite around here}.  I knew Bodie was to tired to go even though it was only 6 PM.  I walked Truman down stairs and out to our friends car when Gregg came out and said Bodie had fallen asleep and I needed to see.  I ran up to the boys room and found this {pictured above}.  Bodie asleep on Truman's bed mid-story with his skeleton mask on at 6 PM.
 We have been trying to feed Pete more solid foods.  It makes such a mess in the beginning when they are trying to learn how to get it in their mouth.
There was one night this month that was forecasted to freeze.  I was worried about our garden so I harvested as much as I could.
Spaghetti squash,  red potatoes, pumpkins, zucchini, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and crook neck squash.
We have had lots of rain this month which we don't mind at all!
I don't think our sprinklers have been turned on for almost a month.
One morning it was raining at the bus stop.  Truman grabbed this VS umbrella and I thought it was pretty funny when the boys were all under it together waiting for the bus!
