Halloween Weekend!

A Halloween weekend, in rewind!
Tonight we went trick-or-treating with our neighbors, and Bryson had a blast!! He actually started to carry his own pumpkin bag and reach for candy by the end of the night. He adores our neighbor, Blake- and is always wanting to hang with him. I love this photo of the two of them!

Even Leia got in on the costume action, and she absolutely hated it. But, here she is- Doctor Leia:

Saturday evening, we had a hayride/bonfire event with our Sunday School class outside of town, in Haskell. It was a perfect evening and Bryson really enjoyed watching the 'big kids' and running around.

Bryson doesn't go to school on Fridays, but we made a special trip since the 'Black Cat Parade' was scheduled. Basically, they parade the school around the circle drive 3x, and all the parents stand around and watch, taking cute photos. Bryson just couldn't quite figure out why all of his friends looked different :)

Overall, it was a wonderful weekend. I feel like we all need an extra day to rest up before starting another week! It's hard to believe that October is actually over, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Time seems to be going by too quick!

Great Weekend!

Brandon and I were able to get away this past weekend- to Eureka Springs, AK. We hadn't been away from Bryson for more than 24 hours and we hadn't taken a trip since I became pregnant, so we were long overdo for this weekend away!

We stayed at the New Orleans Hotel and Spa right in the middle of the historic district, on Spring Street. It was a beautiful old hotel. There wasn't an elevator, and our room was on the 3rd floor, so we got plenty of exercise!! We walked almost everywhere this weekend- dinner at Ermelio's, shopping, Mud Street Cafe and several hiking trails.
We checked out Onyx Cave (a tourist trap) and had a couples massage on Saturday.
Overall, it was a wonderful weekend away. We needed the break, but it was great to get back home and spend time with Bryson and Leia again!

Pumpkin Patch

We went to Carmichael's pumpkin patch outside of town today, and had a blast! It's crazy to think how much Bryson has changed in a year....Last year we were able to just prop him up on a pumpkin and take a photo. Now he can walk and climb all over the pumpkins!

We spent over two hours there, allowing Asher (our nephew) and Bryson to roam all over the place and visit the petting zoo portion numerous times. The best part: it was FREE!

We are still going to try to visit to our old stomping grounds- pumpkin town next weekend. But this little pumpkin patch outside of Tulsa was well worth the drive and the petting zoo really set it apart! I'm so excited to start this tradition with Brandon and Bryson!
