9.26.09- We went down to Oktoberfest today and while we were less than impressed with the festival we did try a new beer and Andrew got to do a beanbag toss and ride the bungee trampoline. It did make me want to travel to downtown more often, the parks are absolutely beautiful down there.
9.25.09 - It's definitely feeling like fall around here. It's been especially cold this past week and is supposed to warm up for the weekend. I've been burning my pumpkin spice candle and really wanting to get out my decorations. I just have not had the time because I've been editing so many photos but this next weekend I plan to set aside some time to do it with Andrew. Nothing says fall like a bunch of pumpkins around the house!
9.23.09 - Check out Andrew's brag board! I am so impressed with his new school. He brings home art projects and papers everyday. I also love the little bears they send home with a positive message each week. I'm planning on saving them all and create a mini book at the end of the year.
9.22.09- Andrew got to ride the Fun Bus at school today!! Last week he came home very upset because he didn't get to ride it. Theypark the darn thing right in front of the school and all of his friends when to ride it and he wasn't signed up. Now I'm feeling like a bad Mommy but I didn't know it would be right in front for everyone to see and it's an extra fee each month. But, we made an agreement with him that if he does his chores around the house he gets to go on the Fun Bus. So, far he is doing great and does the chores without question. Hey why didn't we think of this sooner??

9.11.09 - I thought about putting a photo up of a flag or a photo of the twin towers in NY or some other symbol that is often related to 9/11 but when I saw this photo of my friends daughter I took while at her house I knew it would be my picture of the day. The look of wonder in her eyes and innocence is so precious. I do pray for all of those people who lost family and friends on this day 8 years ago but see this photo as one of the reasons everyone moves forward. For our children.

9.09.09 - Bummer!!! We've been watching this watermelon grow bigger each day just waiting for it to get big enough to pick and eat it. We are having a cold front move in a few days so I though we better go ahead and pick it. When I sliced it open Andrew said "BUMMER!" No kidding kid.
I loved having a cooler summer this year but our garden did not like it so much. :-(
9.6.09 - Andrew had a very fun playdate today. He played with two of his favorite girls Lily and Rhegan. They are so cute together. There were so many great photos of the day (Andrew in his tutu, the kids playing with roly poly's) but I love this photo because the look of determination on Rhegan's face is priceless. To get them to turn around we told them the icecream man was outside. :-)

9.3.09 - Today Andrew had his meet and greet for his new preschool. His new teachers are Miss Marilyn and Miss Amy. He had a nice time meeting his new teachers and some new friends as well. There are 14 kids in his class and 12 are boys!! LOL He just can't wait to start on Tuesday.
8.27.09 - The phrase of the day was... "I can not believe Andrew did that!" We took a drive up to Vail with Nana and Papa and went to the top of the mountain on the gondola. Soon Andrew spotted the trampoline bungee ride and wanted to go on it. Andrew is not one to go on these rides, he is very reserved. We thought he'd change his mind when it was his turn but just like a big boy he got on it, got strapped in and went for it. He absolutely loved it. In fact, when he got off he wanted to get right back on. So, he went again and this time did two flips. Atta boy!!
