The Pond

Sunday we decided to walk to the pond. The kids had a lot of fun, and Ben ended up falling in the pond. The pictures are in reverse order...but you will get the idea just start from the bottom of the post! :)

Ben and Jeannie...quite possibly his first real crush. :)

The boys looked for frogs the whole time. They were the cutest little frogs ever!

Emily walking around trying to get dirty.

Ben, Brighton, and Braden looking for frogs on the rocks that I am sure Ben is going to fall off of. He finally did fall after he had been alone on the rocks for about five minutes. He was a good sport though and just kept playing.
Ben going to catch up with the boys after Darren scared him under the bridge.

Kids and Peanut going to play by the water.

Boys running with the dogs to the rocks where they found lots of little frogs!

Pumpkin carving

We visited our friends Jeannie and Darren. We decided to carve some pumpkins on Sunday before we left. Here are the pictures. Enjoy! :)

More pumpkin cleaning with Darren watching.

More cleaning, now with Jeannie helping.

Kids have now given up and are letting Jeannie clean out the pumpkin. Oh and Ms. F was paying us a visit over the weekend too.

Now Brighton has come over to help clean out the pumpkin. This really only lasted a minute or so before they were all bored with the pumpkin cleaning and they just decided that it was clean enough. :)

Emily drawing the face she wants carved onto the pumpkin. It is an interesting interpretation of a traditional Jack-O-Lantern.

Here is Ben's side of the pumpkin. We did not get a good picture of the side I carved for Emily but it was interesting! :)
