Pumpkin Patch

Me, Cameron, and Matthew went to the Pumpkin Patch down the street from our house the other day. Matthew was sooo excited about all the pumpkins that were Matthew sized. He picked up like 50 million different pumpkins. Finally, Daddy picked out one that was just right for him. There was a "tractor train" that pulled Matthew around. He wasn't into the bouncy houses they had there, but he did enjoy the petting zoo. He actually petted one of the pets!! He loved the ducks and kept saying onk onk to the Pigs. Its so adorable. Later, we went to a friends house and we carved pumpkins. Matthew had a really fun time. :-)

Matthew's Birthday Part 2!

Telling Mama he is 2!

He was very excited to see the Elmo cake.

Friday My little Man turned 2 years old. I still can not believe it has been 2 years since I gave birth to my little Monkey. He has been a joy, a learning experience on how strong I am, and one of the greatest gifts God has ever given to me. We celebrated it on Saturday by taking him to Chuck E. Cheese. We got there and he was not to fond of the moving machine people on the stage, right next to the booth we were sitting at. He was tightly clutched onto me or Cameron the whole time. Poor guy! Eventually he warmed up to them and even danced near the stage no problem. He wouldn't let Chuck E. Cheese come up to him though. He was not ready for a "live" moving thing. Guess that means Disneyland and Mickey Mouse is out. ;-) He had like 5 pieces of pizza [his favorite food ever] and some good yummy Elmo cake. Cameron did a really good job in constructing the cake, while I did the decorating [aka frosting]. Aunt Renee, Jerry, and his two daughters, Jessica and Jennifer came to celebrate as well.

So we have left Kodiak. It was a bittersweet leaving most definitely...:-( I made a few life long friends while i was there and while some had gone, some had stayed and some were brand new. Either way I was forced to say goodbye to them because I was leaving. It was definitely hard to do, so I had to have a lot of goodbye parties and outings to get them all taken care of.

First, We had to say goodbye to some of Kodiaks outdoor beauty...

Of course Matthew had to walk right to his own path.

Then me and Kali went out for a just us type of night [all our other gals couldn't do last minute]
However, whenever we would go out in Kodiak, you never know who we could run into. We ran into this lady....

We thought a bunch of different things as we sat next to her and just watched her...

Was the ball in her hair also to be pulled out and used as a weapon against creepy fishermen?
Did she get the memo for the Kodiak Derby and we didn't?
Was this a regular hat she wore out all the time?
We didn't know the answers these but we snuck a picture in just to document her amazingness.

Then my other play group mommies threw me a goodbye party, disguised as one of our annual Friday night Dinners! I had no idea. I will miss these special ladies....

Sara even made me a cake!!!

Matthew had to say goodbye as well.
