The month of October started off with the three kids going on their field trip to the pumpkin patch. I was fornunate to be able to go along again this year and it was so fun to chat with their teachers and watch my kids interact with their friends. It was this field trip that I realized Jake is ALL BOY! He was running around in the mud and didn't care how dirty he got. He was up close and personal with all of the animals and had no fear!
Pete went to Matt's (my sister's fiance) bachelor party over the first weekend in October so my mom came to visit and help with the kids. We had a great time and it sounds like Pete did as well!
Halloween festivities took over the later portion of the month. The kids were adorable in their costumes as you will see in the pictures! (I know, not bias at all!)
Here are pictures from our month of October...
