Fall Weekend With Some of My Favorite People

This weekend was an absolute blast! On Saturday morning, two of my favorite people came into town - Mamaw and Papaw. We had so much fun planned for the weekend and I am glad that they were able to make it to share with me.

On Saturday afternoon, we hung out and got really rested for an exciting evening. We had tickets to the Zoo Boo at our local zoo. Since the zoo is one of my favorite places added with candy and dressing up, I knew we could not go wrong. I got all ready in my costume, the "be-raffe". My godbrother and neighbors also joined us. It was so much fun and I could not believe all of the people! We had so much fun as you can see from the pics.

After an exciting evening, we took it easy today, and after my nap, we headed out to a farm nearby. We had never been there but I have to say that I would love to go back. They had a play area for kids, animal petting, a pumpkin patch, corn maze, donut and cider hut, and well you get the point. I played for a while on the John Deere tricycles then had some fun with the animals. I waited in line for the hayride and was so excited to ride back to the pumpkin patch. As soon as we almost got to the pumpkin patch, the skies opened up and it poured on us. So we skipped the pumpkin patch and rode back. Don't you know that when we got back to the front, the rain had stopped and the sun was back out. Of course! I was able to get a pumpkin after all and enjoy some awesome cinammon donuts and apple cider. Such a wonderful time!

Lots of Updates . . .

Well we are really behind so we are going to quickly catch you up on my life since turning two. Since I turned two, I have become so much more mature and can hold full conversations with people. I have started to settle down from those "terrible twos" and really just enjoying everything.

After my birthday, I had lots of fun activities that came up. I attended the African Festival with Mom and Dad during August and had a ball. I loved the African dancers and drums. It was so fun to watch.

For Labor Day, we went to hang out with Daddy's family and visited the local zoo. I love animals so going to different zoos is always a blast! My favorite animal is the "be-raffe" as I call them, but you may know them as giraffes :) I even picked that as my Halloween costume. We had a lot of fun and I even got to see the be-raffe up close and personal.

The following weekend, Mom and Dad had gotten me tickets to the UniverSoul Circus. We go every year and it is so much fun! I loved it. The tigers were very cool and as you can see, I was mezmerized by the whole thing.

Later in September, we went to visit my cousins because it was my cousin's birtday. We had a fun and I licked all the icing off the cupcakes!

Just a couple of weeks ago, we went to go see Yo Gabba Gabba again. I saw them back in April but this time was so much fun because I am older now and really enjoyed myself with my friends and his Mommy and Daddy. And yes, that is "The" Biz Markie!

That same weekend, I was supposed to go to the zoo with Mommy's friend and her son but I was kinda sick so we had to wait and go later that weekend. It was so much fun and I loved getting my hand painted (wasn't letting them touch my face), walking through the corn maze, the hayride and seeing the animals. It was a blast!

Just last weekend, I helped Daddy to rake the leaves and put them in pumpkin bags to put in the front yard, it was so fun to help!

Right now, I love learning! I am a complete sponge. I love reading and everytime I go to the store, I insist that Mommy and Daddy buy me more. At daycare, I usually like to sit at the table and read while all the other kids play around. It is one of my favorite things to do as well as lay on the floor and watch "Diego". I promise I will stay on Mommy to keep everyone updated - it has been busy around our house but we will do better . . .
