Fall is my favorite time of year and one of the things that we do together as a family is go to Crossroads Village a couple of times during the year. At Halloween they decorate the entire village and have trick or treating for young and old alike…. dressed up or not! This year it happened to be over 80 degrees that day so the costumes we had picked out just weren’t going to work! We improvised though!
The maze was fun for the kids even if you could see over the top of the walls! Although I’m not sure what’s up with that look she was giving me.
As you can see she was excited for lunch!
I’m hoping that she doesn’t visit my blog all that often or else she is going to be pissed at me for posting this picture for the world to see. Although… better here than Facebook, right? And she refused to smile nice anyway.
He had so much fun running through the maze over… and over… and over again. If there wasn’t a way out I bet that we could have left him there for the rest of the afternoon to play!
Of course the highlight of the trip is riding the old steam locomotive! This train is an original that has been fully restored and is run several times a day taking riders for a 40 minute journey through Crossroads Village, past Mott Lake and by the county fairgrounds. The entire ride is narrated and complete with music as well as decorations along the way for the holiday and well worth the trip to Crossroads!
Okay…. so much for wordless, huh? Good thing that I’m linking up with Seven Clown Circus and Parenting by Dummies for WordFUL Wednesday!
A word to the wise…… Never leave your camera unattended…..
Children will get a hold of it and figure out how to use it. Whether it’s your phone, plain jane digital camera, or your prized possession… your DSLR.
Did she take this herself or did she let her little sister do it?
Look at them…. all cute and nice looking. But don’t let them fool you.. they’re camera bandits.
They sneak in when you’re
Tweeting busy dealing with the toddler and start their game.
Picture after picture until the fun is done and then they place everything back exactly they way they found it. And one day when you finally pull pictures off of the camera you find them. The evidence.
Camera bandits have struck again.
I wasn’t feeling up to writing the post that I had planned on so instead I thought I’d share some of the pictures from our little photo shoot at the park.
These are some of the more fun ones that I took of the kids.
Andrew & Natalie liked climbing into the tree…. although he had a bit more help than she did!
I shall call this one Lemon Face.
And this…. is the girls rendition of Super Mario Brothers.
They were trying to get Andrew to smile and sit still!
Today I’m off guest posting at Bellflower Books! Come check my post out about a very special person in my life.
And since it is Wordless Wednesday I’ll leave you with this.
My Kids ~ Summer 2011
Normally on a Wordless Wednesday I post pictures of my kids or places that we’ve been, but this week I’m doing something a little different. A couple of years a go we had some family pictures taken and there were a some of my husband and I that turned out pretty decent.
Here we are looking all posed & cute. Really it’s the best picture there is of us out there even if I do look slightly round & frumpy.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
