Truck-a-palooza 2018

Truck-a-palooza 2018

Today we took Landon to downtown Riverside where they were having an event called Truck-a-Palooza. The event was a bunch of different type of trucks the kids could look at and climb on. Papa also joined us! Landon had the best time! He kept running and pointing to all the trucks. His favorite part was driving the bus and sitting in the fire truck. The rain made it difficult to get videos but that didn’t stop Landon. His smile says it all!

My furniture refinishing project continued while James and Papa worked on the sprinklers. This meant Landon had a day outside getting into dirt and making a mess. 

Sweet Tea

Landon got his first taste of sweet tea today.  Gigi came over to help me refinish a bedroom set. Daddy watched the kids play in the kiddie pool while we worked. We brought home McDonald’s and Landon got his first taste. He of course loved it! 


Landon loved the corn bread we had with dinner.

Day of swimming

After Landon woke up from his nap he noticed Tessa playing in the pool and started crying because he wanted in immediately. We quickly got him changed so he could play too! 

After his afternoon nap we headed to Gigi and Papa’s to visit and swim some more. Landon loved floating in the tug boat even though the water was freezing!

Landon liked playing in the spa even more! He thought it was funny to splash and get Daddy all wet. He also loves sticking his face in the water. We might have a swimmer in the future! 

Landon thought it was funny to take Cindy when Tessa wasn’t looking 

First trip to the Pumpkin Patch 

First trip to the Pumpkin Patch 

We decided to take a trip to the pumpkin patch this year since our trip to the apple farm was a bust last year. I found this farm called Greenspot Farm in Mentone from a Facebook friend. We decided to give it a try. The weather said it was supposed to be really warm but we had great weather and missed the rain. 
As we were walking up to the farm their dog greeted us. It was so cute. He even joined our family picture. 

Landon got see baby goats and bunnies before our tractor ride. 

Landon was not impressed with the tractor ride. 

While everyone else went through the hay maze Landon and I swung on the swing. He eventually fell asleep and slept most of the time. 

Landon woke up in time for a family picture and a mini photo shoot in the pumpkins. 

Weekend Oct 15-16 2016

Weekend Oct 15-16 2016

On Saturday I left Landon and Tessa with Daddy to go shopping for some new clothes with Auntie Madi. It was weird to leave them and let Landon have a bottle. I felt guilty leaving but it was a nice little break. 

On Sunday we cleaned the house and Daddy worked on the back yard. I worked on getting Landon to nap in his crib but didn’t have much success. He can put himself to sleep in the crib but struggles to stay asleep for a long period of time.
