October- A Month of Parties!

As we begin October, I'm compelled to think that this is going to be one heck of a month of parties!! The first Saturday alone, was booked with three main events! We started our day in Holt, MO at Jed's Pumpkin Patch, http://www.looperfarms.com/ where we met up with a parenting group from church, then mid-afternoon we trecked across town where we celebrated Gunner's THIRD birthday in true Superhero style-with spider sandwiches and spinach dip too! We finally ended our day burning off any excess energy possible, running wild at the newest (and only) indoor blow-up playground in the Northland, http://www.airzone.com/ to help celebrate Michael's SIXTH birthday! We had an absolute blast!! I can't believe we made it through the day without any serious meltdowns or naps!! ~Sunday, on the other hand, was not so smooth....

We are still looking forward to more great fun as the kids will both have field trips to other pumpkin patches and farms later this month and we have more birthdays filling our calendar everyday!! Not to mention our Great Halloween Bash that we are planning ourselves! Why not celebrate with some fright free fun right in our own backyard! We've been breaking out the Halloween decorations and making crafts for the past two weeks! And I have a feeling that this may be even bigger than our Easter Egg Hunt last spring... We're planning of course, your typical Halloween party ploys with a costume contest, pumkin judging, apple bobbing, a guess how many game, s'mores and much, much more! The kids will decorate their own treat bags then while the parents go "hide" in the woods as they come to find us and "trick-or-treat" as we say "boo!" Stay tuned for more as the days wind down.
