Pickin' Pumpkins

September was a LONG month! Not only was Matt on a crazy schedule working 18 hour days; getting home at 5 in the morning. We were on our second round of potty training. So we were juggling staying close to Ella's potty and staying out of the house so Matt could sleep... because there's 
NO WAY of keeping this little 2 year old quiet. 
Now suddenly we're past all the crazy and once again life is back to our "normal".
I'm reminded once again that nothing lasts forever and that I need to keep JOY in the journey. As much as I'm still adjusting to life away from "home" I'm realizing that this is how our story goes.
I'm just lucky I've been blessed with the best travel companions.

A corn pit, seriously! This was the coolest part!

Ella's been missing Nana and Grandpa's trampoline she couldn't get enough of these blow up bubbles!

The last time I can remember picking pumpkins was at the Beck's and as a child I remember them being humongous! This was a first for Ella and Matt so I suppose these littles will have to do.  

This is Ella's "don't take a picture of my pumpkin" face... 
really I can't complain if this is what grumpy looks like! 

Trunk or treating at the church. Ella had more fun giving out the candy then she had getting it. She was sad when our treasure chest was empty.


  1. A CORN PIT!?!? That is SO awesome! The blow up trampoline things look fun too!
    I'll say it again- I'm loving all these pictures! You really do have the best "travel companions" and I'm glad you survived September :)

  2. We went to a place just like that! My kids spent forever in the corn pit and Mason couldn't wait to jump on the rainbow tramp. Ella's the cutest little tinkerbell. We definitely need to Skype
