Pumpkin Patch

We had a ton of fun taking Ethan to a local pumpkin patch.  It was huge!  I was surprised at all the activities they had there.  Of course there were pumpkins, but they also had farm animals, train rides, hay rides, a corn maze, kids play structures, apple cider slushies (YUMMMMMMY), and more!  Ethan loved walking around and watching all of the older kids play.

And just a few more……



Week 5 – Macro

So week 5 has turned into what, week 8 or 9?  Oh well!  So this challenge was to take a macro shot.  I do not own a macro lens so I had to get creative.

And just because the fall colors are so beautiful….

Ethan’s First Birthday

Well, my little baby turned 1!  I can’t believe it.  This year has gone by so incredibly fast.  I have been watching Ethan learn and grow each and every day and it just amazes me how much someone can change in such a short time.  It has been a year of well, a lot of firsts!  From first smile to first tooth to first steps, it has truly been an amazing year.  I feel like the luckiest mom in the world!

Anyway, back to Ethan’s party.  We celebrated with friends and family at the park.  Ethan had a blast playing, opening presents and eating cake.  It was a little strange to see him walking around just like all of the other kids.  It really hit me that he is not so much a baby anymore, but a toddler and very soon (too soon!) will be just a regular kid.  And now for the pics………
