This was a fun weekend...kinda exhausting, but fun. We picked up Haley and Lexi from Grandma Connie Saturday morning. From there we went to Michaels Crafts and the girls were able to exercise their artistic gifts in pumpkin decorating--no pumpkins were harmed in the making of these crafts! (Nor were any children!)
Haley was very "into" the project. She did most
of the cutting and gluing of the foam onto her
pumpkin. I helped her with the hat, but
she did the rest of the work on her own.
Lexi's finished project. (I think he kinda looks like me!)
Haley kept adding things to her pumpkin. I
think the green fuzzy things are ears.
We went to Disneyland and met Brian, Jennifer
and Emily at California Adventure. That Emily is
the consummate Disney fan already.
Today after church we all had lunch at Boston Market
and then went to the Johnson Brothers Pumpkin Patch.
All the girls rode the ponies. We were worried about Emily,
but we shouldn't have. She LOVED it. Only cried
when it was time to get OFF the pony! (I didn't get
any stills of her for some reason, but she's
in the video below, pigtails flying!)
Lexi had a good time, too!
Note Brian and Jennifer in the background
getting Emily settled on her pony ("Rainbow")
Let's hurry up and RIDE!!! Emily's hands
are SOOO busy and so expressive. They're
always moving and are so fun to watch!
Haley's smile always gets me!
The video below starts with our visit yesterday to Prehistoric Pet Store. The girls love looking at snakes, iguanas, and other reptiles. They really enjoy feeding time...feeding live worms to turtles and fish. It's a bit "yucky" so if you like you can fast-forward to the bumper cars at Disneyland! The pony ride at the Pumpkin Patch is at the end of the video.
