Fall is here! I know it is not technically according to the calendar but the early mornings sure feel like it. We got our first chance to go throw some leaves in the air and run through them earlier this week.
I love vests on little boys.

He looks like a farmer boy with his gumboots.

Leah and her buddy wanted to play basketball, just like at the park so I pulled out a 5 gallon bucket that my dad left here, found a stray nail in the side of the ‘shed’ and voila! Now they just want the bottom cut off. Innovative or redneck? I’ll let you decide.

Joel loves to sit on a ball or roll on his stomach on a ball until he falls off and laughs. Leah has adopted this chair as her own and has taken up a little bit of football.

Joel actually ate a good bit of corn off this cob.

We got a gift certificate to a restaurant in Richmond which was fancier than I thought. Thankfully we brought felts and paper for the kids to keep them occupied. Leah and Joel did well though there were lots of distractions. We ordered right away for their food, which worked out well and ate our food while the kids were stilling eating theirs (or playing with it) and then left quickly. Not as nice as when we go out on our date nights but still some family time.

Visiting Grandma at work.
Leah and her chef outfit. If you come to visit, bring your credit card. Prices are set at $97 for everything at her restaurant lately.

Joel loves to try put on Leah’s shoes. He’s figured out her crocs but flip flops are a lot more difficult.
I learned how to slalom properly this year. I went for an evening ski with Leah as my spotter.

Bedtime stories. Morgan reads three stories every night to Leah. It is their special father-daughter time. Joel hangs out in Leah’s room until he gets into trouble.

He loves to climb onto Leah’s bed and bounce, which is when I get called in to put him to bed.
