Evie's favorite thing lately is sliding! Big slides, little slides, twisty slides...doesn't much matter! She loves them all! We are so thankful for the lovely fall we've been having! Its giving her more outside time which she adores!

14 months and counting! She sure is growing up fast!

the patch

The girls had fall break this week - so we took Evie on her first trip to the pumpkin patch! She LOVED it! She wanted to pick up every pumpkin she saw! She wondered all over the grounds and had a blast! What a dolly!

Today was such a beautiful day! Evie and I took a break from our normal routine and spent longer than usual outside. We even ate lunch on the front lawn. Then tonight we planted some mums, climbed on the playset and collected pinecones. Tomorrow brings cooler weather through the weekend...cooler as in 40s and 50s with a slight chance of SNOW! eeeeeek!

After a day spent outside with tons of pictures to document our adventures...Evie was done. She had had enough!

"Really!? That's enough mom!"

Silly girl!

Morrill Hall

Evie loved exploring Morrill Hall a few weeks ago! Corynn was attending a birthday party there- so John, Evie and I decided to hang around and check things out until the party was done.

This was the best room! There are cut outs on the floor with fossils in them covered by super thick glass/plexiglass stuff. Evie wouldn't go near them and kept avoiding them. She thought she was going to fall in. I kneeled down on one and tried to coax her onto it...she freaked, shook her head and bolted. 

I think she really enjoyed herself, but is still working on her "inside-a-museum-be-quiet" voice. Her giggles and squeals echoed in the Mammoth room! She loved it! So did I!  :)
