We've taken Cooper to the same pumpkin patch for the last three Octobers but this was the first time that he was able to walk into the pumpkin patch!  I love watching him investigate the pumpkins and to watch him just run around in the field.  He's really just a fun kid (he has his moments albeit...) and I just love making memories with him!

Walking to the pumpkin patch :)

It's Fall!!!

A long time ago, I worked as a social worker at a long-term care facility and they do an annual fall festival that is free to the community.  Oh, I love the word "free" especially when it's referring to free food, free games, free pony rides, etc!  It's always nice to see the old crew again and to show off my goodlooking boy!  
LOL, he looks so amused!

Homeboy loved the hula-hoops!  I sucked at the demonstration but it was hilarious to watch his skills!  He get in and just walk in circles!  Oh, he makes me laugh!

Pirates and Princesses

One of Cooper's closest buddies had his third birthday and this real cool place last month.  It's like this farm house but it's not farm from the city and they specialized in themed birthday parties.  We went to one called Pirates and Princesses and it was really cute.  There were costumes that they could change into, a bunny and some chickens that the kids could hold, and a game where they just threw candy onto the ground and the kids went nuts.  Yeah, Coop had a great time!
Cooper liked a lot of the princess toys but I'm raising him to not fall into gender stereotypes :D

My friend's mom made this cupcakes!  Amazing!

Coop was a fan ;)

Choo Choo!

Cooper is definitely all boy and loves trains, cars and airplanes but he especially loves trains!  A small group of mommy friends and I took the kiddos to a Civil War and Locomotive museum in Kennesaw and it was awesome!  This museum is a Smithsonian museum and was very educational plus it had an awesome indoor kid play area!  This museum was worth the drive and it's only $6.50! 


Caboose (eh, I can't get it to flip) but it's open so the kids went in one end ran through and came out the other a hundred times!

I wish we had room for a traintable at home...

Fireman Cooper

Our city had it's first firestation opening in 22 years a few weekends ago and we went for the grand opening ceremony.  I think it's important that as a family we're involved in community events and to show Cooper to be a responsible member in his community.  We met the mayor and the Chick-fil-a cow dressed as a fireman...I don't know who Cooper was more impressed by ;)

35 months old today!

One more month until my sweet boy is 3!  Seriously, how did this preemie who couldn't even breathe on his own become such a strong and busy boy!  We've had a rough start to this 35 month celebration with him waking up at 2:30 am with throwing up...boy, you gotta love this time of year with stomach bugs at every turn! 

I took this pic of him on Friday after we had lunch with friends.  Hey, sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses!
