Accidents Happen
November 8, 2011


Well, I originally wrote this big ol’ long blog on how Bailey fell and cut her face and when I went to add the photos, this app locked up and crashed and I lost everything. So, this happened Saturday night…

And I’ll post more details tomorrow when I get back to a desktop… 😉

Enjoying the Cool Fall Air
October 25, 2011


With me having to work late to catch up for missing yesterday, Bailey got full Daddy time this evening. As such, I got all kinds of cool photos on what I was missing…

The fun ride home from practice…

I was so happy she had such a great evening and Johnny was so kind to make me a part of it the best he could!!!

Pumpkins, Goats & Kitty Face
October 22, 2011

Today, we packed up the family and headed to Pumpkins Galore in Wright City. Recommended by a friend, the ol’ reliable internet confirmed that they had 70 acres of pumpkin patch as well as a wealth of other things to do: wagon rides, hay bale mazes, petting zoo, John Deere rides and more… So needless to say, Bailey had a BLAST!!

First, she played on the “horse swings” while her brothers participated in the punkin chunkin!

Then, both Hasten and Tristan walked little fearless Bailey up the mighty tall slide:

, about 10′ tall, and slid down the bumpy ride to the bottom with Bailey snuggly in their laps.

Then, we saw goats (and fed them)

and a cow (and fed it too), pigs and even a donkey named Radar!

Then she got to meet the two big horses pulling the hay wagon,

followed by getting to go on the wagon ride itself!

After that, she got to play in the corn. Literally. They had filled up huge pools with corn and you just plunked your kid in there to play. Bailey was fine, but didn’t want to sit down, prompting Johnny’s standard muttering of “you’re such a GIRL!”

And, to that end, we headed over to have our faces painted, which Bailey wanted no part of, until I did it first. Johnny picked a jack o lantern out for me. Once she figured out what the heck was going on, she was on board for a kitty nose and whiskers! (yes, Katie, just for you!!)

Hasten got a “fall tree” with bats included and, shockingly enough, Tristan got a baseball!

Then, we painted pumpkins…

and also picked out some bigger ones we wanted to take home for carving. By this time, Bailey (and I) were getting tired and ready to head home. But, we had one last item on our list: the John Deere train. Bailey piled in like a trooper and was ok, until they started moving.

But, after being pulled around the loop, she was ready to go again!

And then changed her mind when Johnny tried to put her back in. So, we called it a day and headed home.

We stopped and picked up some McDonald’s (where she got fries, ate some of my burger and begged for (and got) sweet tea!!

When she was all done, she was out cold (well fed and tired to the bone) in just a matter of minutes! See the tired kitty here:

Overall, it was a great family day!!
