Saturday while I was at a Moonvine Organics boutique, Greg and Cannon met up with Greg, Alex, and Riley, and Tyson and Steph at the Tracy Aviary. It's at Liberty Park. I didn't even know it was still there! They all had a great time, and Cannon's favorite was the yellow parrott.

Scarecrow Festival

We go to the Scarecrow festival every year, what a fun time! It's been at Thanksgiving point the last couple of years, so it's bigger than ever. Cannon went on EVERY single bouncy thing! He was pooped out!
All of the bouncies smelled like dirty feet to me. I wonder why? Looks like Cannon found the answer. He took an extra long bath that night......
He always makes sure to get a pumpkin painted on his face. Cute!
This year Cannon got a balloon spider from "Robo the Clown" Greg wondered if the clown had a Robitussin problem...... maybe? It was a really nice day, I got a little sunburn on my forehead! Can't wait for next year!

Last Game

Last night was Cannon's last T Ball game, and it was the BEST!!! What a good game, and a big prize at the end: A TROPHY.
Cannon has been in heaven ever since! He told us it's made of real gold and it's shiny because someone waxed it. He is sooo proud of it, and he carries it every where. He even had us take it to show Papa Johnny Mack today! It's fun to see him so thrilled!

It's so fun to see all these milestones, and watch him grow up and get so big. It makes the parents proud too.
He's doing more and more on his own, with other kids and not Mom and Dad. I'm happy to see him interacting with others so well. You never know, right? Just teach them the best way you know how and send them out into the world! Sometimes it feels like jumping off a building, but it always works out! Luckily.

Playing Tag

Thanks Erica, for the tag! I'm actually playing along this time! The assignment was, post the 4th picture in your 4th folder and explain it...... This is my lovely sister Stacy and her husband Jason. They had pictures done this summer and she had me scan some for her. They are still on my computer! Anyway, she is so wonderful, she always has a place for anyone at her dinner table, and she helps EVERYONE she sees. She is also good in a crisis, the one with the even head. She's been married to Jason for 20 years! He is so wonderful, just like the big brother I never had.

The second part of the tag is:

1. What time do you wake up: usually 8am or so

2. On a good night, what time are your kids in bed? 7:45

10. If you could take your kids anywhere, where would it be? Back to Disneyland, he keeps asking

11. When's the last time you went out with out your kids? That happens all the time here, my mom always wants Cannon at her house!

12. Most heartbreaking moment as a mom? We were both yelling and screaming at each other a couple of weeks ago. and we both just started to cry. How depressing, when you lose your cool.

13. When's the last time you told your kids I love you? That happens every second around here! He now just answers, "okay"

14. When's the last time you were told I love you? This morning.
