We were on a roll this weekend in October with no rain. It had rained so much already this month that you felt like celebrating every time the sun came out. Today was a great day with sun and fun activities in Forest Park. Thanks to Dad and Mom for donating to Forest Park Forever so we could enjoy all the fun activities. The kids rode ponies, took pictures, had snacks, took a carriage ride and did crafts. Thanks again Mom and Dad!

Grant's Farm always puts on a great performance for Halloween. When our friends asked us to join them we knew the kids would have a great time. We bundled up and enjoyed a night of magic shows, carousel rides, feeding the goats and dancing the night away in the Garden area. The highlight of the night for Trey was when he saw a family that dressed up as the Wizard of Oz characters. The kids had fun, it wasn't raining for once and we had a great night with friends.

Wow! what a crazy month of October. It was always raining and cold, but somehow we managed to squeeze in a trip to the Pumpkin Patch. The kids had a day off of school so we headed to Rombach's. It was freezing, the kids were complaining and since it had rained all week it was a muddy mess which Trey loved. We stayed long enough to play and take pics especially since it was Claire and Dane's first Pumpkin Patch visit. When the kids had enough we headed to Red Robin's for lunch. Not an ideal year for the pumpkin patch.
