Here's little of what we've been up to lately...
Hal has had a few out-of-town games the last few weekends, so Lincoln and I have been keeping ourselves busy. Thankfully the games are all live online so we can catch all the action even though we can't be there in person. So far we're having a great season, we're 4-1!
After the game, and after naptime, we like to get outside and enjoy this beautiful fall we're having! Lincoln loves bike rides. Even if we just step out in the garage for something, he tries to climb in the Burley to go for a ride. He just loves to be outside. We're definitely going to have to find a way to keep him active this winter when it's so cold.
Here's a before & after shot of the little updating project I did this weekend. Our fireplace has just kind of been bugging me lately. I see all these gorgeous, beautifully decorated fireplaces on Pinterest, and just wasn't sure what to do with ours. It's just so ugly. Then I came across a lady who gave her brass fireplace a little update and I thought, bingo - I can do that! Just involves a little Rustoleum High-Heat spray paint. What a difference!
Arlen was also in town this weekend visiting Kim, so we all decided to go to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. None of us got any great pictures, but here's the few that I got. (of course, none of the pumpkins!) They had quite a few animals: donkeys, llamas, alpacas, cows, goats, pigs, ducks, and peacocks. They also offered free hayrides! It was a fun way to spend a gorgeous Saturday afternoon!
I have to share this picture too - just kind of cracks me up. Hal came home the other night from practice and went right to the shower. Lincoln climbed up on the gate and stood like this the entire time he was upstairs, hollering, "Dadda!" "Dadda!" Too cute.
My mom was also here a few weekends ago for a quick visit, and I didn't get one picture! Ugh - I'm horrible! Lincoln LOVES his grandma and had so much fun. I'll have to be better when both mom and dad come down in a couple weeks to catch one of Hal's last home games! We love that my parents are close enough to be able to sneak in these weekend visits and it doesn't take months of planning and a plane ride to get to grandma and grandpa's house!
