Raindrops keep fallin' on my head

Well folks, summer is over :( Definitely... so... over. At least here in the Pacific Northwest it is. Kellee, you shush about your summery weather in Colorado.

Today we braved the rain and went to the Pumpkin Fest in Orting, Washington (Details HERE). Orting is a cute little town. And the Fest was cute too. Definitely doesn't compare to the Pumpkin show in Circleville, Ohio. But it was a nice way to spend the day. Rain boots and jackets in tow, we listened to some local bands, ate at a "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant called Route 66 Pizza, and bought me my first cowgirl hat :) We had planned on picking up some pumpkins from a pumpkin patch on the way home, but Jack had other plans. He was testing us big time today, and we decided that we will wait 'til tomorrow to go pumpkin pickin'. There is a family farm thats on our way home from church, hopefully the weather will be a bit better tomorrow as well.

On Jack's list of new talents, he can say "OWWW". His uncle Jeremy has been working hard to teach him "OW" and "MINE" before he has to move home to Arizona. One down, one to go, Jeremy. Not only does he say "ow" for things that hurt. But he says it when he's mad, when we discipline him, and when he's playing. Anyone else lucky enough to have a 1 year old that knows only the words "daddy", "mama", "nana", "huh?", and "OWWW"? It's a good time, let me tell ya.

After Jeff and the boys are done watching some boy movie.. I think it's called Last Man Standing? And after we put Jack to sleep... My wonderfull hubby is taking me to see Life As We Know It.

I've been excited about this movie since I saw the trailer the first time. Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel star as two single people that are named in a mutual friend's will as guardians for the baby. Should be funny. I'm all about humor, and this film looks promising!

One last question, does anyone else have a 1 year old human garbage disposal?


  1. Hey I'll trade you weather! It doesn't even feel like fall yet, my body is so confused and my skin is freaking out :-P

  2. Did you like the movie? I saw it last Sunday and I loved it! I cried and laughed so much during it! I couldn't get over how beautiful their house was.
