Check out that beautiful blue sky!!
Josie had some friends over today for her birthday.
After lunch and some cupcake decorating at home, we went to the Corn Maze.
Absolutely perfect weather + a great group of girls =
the longest birthday party I've even hosted!
(Hope the Moms didn't care too much..eek!)
It was a good day!

Love seeing these pansies when I look out my kitchen window.
The weather has been so warm and sunny that they are growing like crazy.

Happy Birthday my sweet Josephine!
I can't quite believe that you are 7 years old already.
Love you to bits!

Yesterday, our place was Babysitting Central -
a kid from each of my siblings.
Good thing it was a beautiful day to play outside and goof around :)

This little man doesn't sit still for a second...
so I was happily surprised to see that I 'captured' him like this!

The garden is starting to show subtle signs that
it's shutting down for the season.
Is your garden getting tired too?
Do you mind, or do you welcome the change?

Dustin spent his after school hours this week
making a new cage for our rabbits.
Not too bad for a 9 year old!

The kids have been keeping themselves busy fooling around with this 'dead' ride-on lawnmower.  They've snipped all the wires out and found that if they stick them into the gear thingy attached to the steering column (very technical, I know), crank the steering wheel, and clunk a few gears, they will get perfect 'wiggley' wire.

As much as I hate to rush the changing of the seasons,
I emptied some of my summer planters
and potted some pansies and mums.
Love the fresh colors!

Blake expression cracks me up!
I can just imagine him thinking...
"Ha!  Finally I got a turn and no one's gonna kick me off!"

So proud of this boy!
Today he hiked Needle Peak with a group from school.
It was a challenge and he was absolutely beat when he got home.
He just about fell asleep before supper, and when he did finally
make it to the table he was too tired to eat.

Okay, yesterday a few of you were close with your guesses...
but not quite.  They are not Peanut M&M's...but Pretzel M&M's.
Delicious...but it's a good thing they are so expensive...
they usually stay on the store shelf.

WAY back last October, I had a bright moment to take all of the
old jeans that have been piling up around here and use them in a quilt.
The stack of jean squares have been sitting here, waiting for the perfect
backing material.  Finally in August I found something that I loved!!
Now it's all sewn together... and all that still needs to be done is
(hours of) snipping the seams and a good washing to make the frayed seams!
I'll be sure to show you the finished product!

We had never been to Steveston before,
so this afternoon we went to check it out.

Reuben got up close and personal with one of the fish
that was for sale on the docks.  He's literally 4 inches away!!

Checking out the water temperature. 

Blake was happy to be free from his carseat / stroller for a bit. 

Wouldn't you love to live in one of these houses
looking out over the ocean?
