We had a very busy day this past Sunday. We drove up to North Georgia to pick Pumpkins. While we were up there we decided we were so close to Amacalola Falls that we had to climb the Mountain. After we made it to the top, we decided the trip would not be complete with out a trip to the Apple Orchard.

At first she was not so sure about the Pumpkins, I think she was a little overwhelmed.

The Pumpkin she picked to take to school

Finally getting into it

The Gourd she picked and refused to let go of!

Some of the pumpkins where bigger then she is!

Catching Up...Kind of!!!

I was going to try and play catch up with the blog, but I realized, I do not have the time or energy for that! I decided to just go with a quick update and some new pictures.
Since the last blog, in July...Leah has started school and LOVES it!! She loves her teachers, especially Ms. Nadja. She has not one, but two boyfriends. She has learned baby sign language and loves to use it when asking for more, or to eat. It is so cute to watch her because she not only does the signs, but also says the words. She is saying all sorts of new words, including her name. Everything is "BLUE" to her...which is making her daddy very happy, especially since it is football season. She also loves to name all of her body parts with her chin being her new favorite!
We recently went to Memphis for Aunt Leola's 80th birthday! We got to stay at the Peabody which was amazing. Here are some pics from the trip.
I promise I am going to try very hard to keep up with the blog!!!

Hot Fun in the Summertime...

The first of many trips to the water park!

Leah, Saia (in blue), and Juana (in green) posing for the camera!

Leah LOVED the water slide!

It was a lot of fun...

Aiden's 1st trip to the pool...Leah had to go show him how it was done!

Apparently, swimming is tough work!

Another trip to the water park, this time with Cortney and Aubrey and one of their friends.

Mackinac Island

Auntie Lisa turned 50 this month and Uncle Terry took us all up to Mackinac Island, Michigan for a few days.We had to fly straight from Pittsburg (through Chicago) to Michigan. The Island was amazing, with only about 400 people who are permanent residents, there are no motor vehicles allowed on the Island. In order to get around, you either have to ride a bike or a horse! We arrived on the Island at the end of their Lilac Festival, so our stay started with the Lilac parade, we had several yummy meals while we were there as well as a horse and buggy tour of the Island. (Again, there are way too many pictures to post, here are a few of the highlights, the rest will be coming on SnapFish soon!)
