Picking out Pumpkins, 2013 edition








Pumpkin Run 2013

So, even though we were all cold and wet after the Mayor's Run, Sydney was dying to do the Pumpkin Run this year as well. Since it had been nice and warm for most of the beginning of October, we figured it would be okay. Of course, the days leading up to the run have been cold and windy, but we didn't let that stop us. And by us, I mean Charles and Sydney. I took pictures and stayed with Crawford in the cold.

Off they go!!

Waiting for them to cross the finish line.

Here they come!

Not bad, Sydney! Almost a minute faster than in May!

Sydney says that the best part was getting Gatorade and a candy bar after the run was over.

Alright, so it can be hard to get back on track. We have missed a few things the last two months so a little catch up. First, Crawford turned 1! Crazy right.
He received this absolutely fabulous red tricycle, which is most used for storing items in the secret trunk; the toys coolest feature. Of course, now that Crawford is 1 we are no longer allowed to feed him, he must do it himself. Thankfully, he is pretty decent at it for a little guy. He even keeps his pinky up, generally.
Then both of our children had to grow. We have specifically told them not, but they refuse to listen. Growing children means new car seats. We let Sydney help pick hers out. It seemed only fair since the law requires she use a booster until she is 4' 9" and that will likely not happen for her until high school.
While the kids are changing, Valerie are staying our gorgeous selves.
All in all we are a pretty happy family.
