From Daddy: We brought Grandma and Granddad to the pumpkin patch this afternoon. The recent rains made the hay stack maze particularly dirty, but he enjoyed playing it!

We also enjoyed seeing turkeys and bunnies.

Afterward, he held Mommy’s right hand and my left hand, and then he pulled. Mommy asked why he did that. He said that he wanted to pull us closer together. I told him, “You already did.”

This Evening

After Granddad and I returned from a great dinner at Oishi Sushi, we enjoyed watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” as a family.

This Morning

We got to hear Mommy sing in church this morning!

Pizza Critic

From Daddy: Four months ago, Mommy made some homemade pizza for The Boy and The Nephews to have for lunch. This is what she overheard:

Older Nephew: The pizza was definitely the best.

The Boy: Definitely. But you can’t underestimate the strawberries.

Older Nephew: Oh yeah, they were great too. Definitely can’t underestimate them.

All the while, Mommy thinks that the Younger Nephew is looking at both of them like he can’t believe they are playing food critic.

This was the last of the six-session series (we missed the first session going to Shaver Lake). Per tradition, Mommy baked goodies and the boy handed them to the coaches.

Photo Day, September 23, 2016

From Daddy: Awwwwww.

This Evening

“Hey, that’s cool!” he exclaimed from the bathroom.

Uh oh.

He explained that when one puts soap in a cup of water, it can be used to wash hands as an alternative to the faucet.

“Yeah,” I said, “but what happens when you need your cup for drinking?”

“Ohhhhhhhhh,” he said with realization. He walked out of the bathroom with his soapy cup, put his cup on the kitchen counter, and returned to the bathroom with a clean cup.
