Smith Mountain Lake

This past weekend, my dad, Sam, Bobby, and I headed to Smith Mountain Lake for the weekend. Mom was supposed to come to, but because her best friend came down with swine flu, she was afraid of exposing Bobby and me to it and decided it was best not to come. We missed her and really wish that she could have been there too.

We got there Friday afternoon and checked into our state park cabin...very nice I might add. So we weren't truly roughing it, but that's alright since it decided to rain on Saturday. Despite the rain, we were able to hike (well all except me), make fires, roast smores, and enjoy our time together. I think that we have a little mountain man on our hands...he loved every minute being outside, and especially making the fires:) He and Sam have already started scoping out where in the backyard we will be putting in a fire pit.

Pumpkin Time

This past weekend we went to Hillridge Farm again for our pumpkin picking adventure. We went with the Parks family as we have the two previous years, and once again, a good time was had by all. Despite temps in the 40's and a slight on and off drizzle...we all made it with smiles on our faces. It was so fun to watch the kids enjoy all of the activities, as each year they seem to find more and more enjoyment in the activities and each other...or at least at times.

The Cat in the Hat

I just finished listening to Bobby read or make up words to the Cat in the Hat Comes Back for about 45 minutes. Although I am frustrated that he didn't go right to bed, at least he stayed in his bed, and it was so cute to listen to him make up words to go along with the pictures. And some of them were even correct! Sometimes I just can't help but smile.

Bobby is talking more and more, and cracks me up on a routine basis. Here is one of the latest funnies:

He was taking a bath the other night, and we were talking about sharing things when his baby sister gets here. His response was to having to share anything with her was, "that's okay mommy, I'll just put her back in your tummy."

I couldn't help but laugh out loud at that one. He's got another thing coming if he thinks she's going back in after she is out:)

Have a great week!
