We are right in the midst of a beautiful Fall. The trees are absolutely gorgeous. I am excited for them to fall in the hopes that we can get some fun pictures of Dane playing in a huge pile of leaves.
This past weekend, we had a wonderful visit from Hans-Dieter Kopal, a great friend from California. It took some convincing to bring him up North in mid-October, but once he got here it was great. We had so much fun with Hans and as you can see below, Dane took a liking to him right away.
Kisses were enjoyed by all!
Our Family went to a Pumpkin Patch to get some pumpkins for Halloween. They had a ton of extra stuff as well...baby chicks, chickens, hens, goats, cows, etc. There was also a huge corn pit that toddlers could play in. Cruz and Dane loved it.
Dane spent most of the time throwing the corn out of the bin, but enjoyed it all the same.
He walked around the pumpkins trying to pick them up...no such luck this year. Maybe next year he'll be able to grab his own. Some of the pumpkins looked pretty funny.
There was also an apple orchard at the Pumpkin patch and a sign that said..."Children may feed apples that have fallen on the ground to the cows." Dane did it a couple times and we were able to capture it. It was really cute because he would close his eyes as he held out his hand. So fun!
When he was done feeding the cow, we would cheer and he would clap...
Cruz noticed a booger in one of the cow's nose and tried to help him by pointing it out. "Excuse me, Mr. Cow...you have something in your nose...right there!" Such a nice young boy.
Hans taught Dane how to blow the seeds off of a dandelion. Notice how Dane closed his eyes on this one as well.
Hans played with Dane so much this weekend. Dane is going to miss him tons. I can't believe how old Dane looks in this picture. He's running more like a boy now and not so much like a toddler. We'll try and get some videos up on the blog soon. Til next week...
