It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow and normally we wait till after to get our tree but December is super busy this year. I have to travel to CA for work and Kitty and I are taking a trip to Vegas to see some shows for my birthday, so we packed up everyone today and headed out to the Christmas tree farm.
It was HOT today in Portland hitting 100+ so Luca and I headed out on an adventure
Luca loves his samples
Hiking in the coast forest
Luca’s favorite part the lighthouse
As most people in Oregon know we had an early morning surprise on Sunday. Snow!! We were all very excited to head out and have some fun.
Well some of us were a little unsure…
Buckets and shovels ready to …. well actually I’m not sure what they were thinking in this photo. I just have a feeling I’m about to get hit with snowballs.
Momma came out to play too
Just enough snow for sleding and we even built a little ramp
Autumn loved the sled and Luca was happy to pull his sister up and down the street.
It’s our families favorite time of the year!! Here are some highlights from this years trip to the pumpkin patch.
Luca’s auntie lent him a camera and from the time he could walk he’s been taking pictures. He loves taking closeup pictures of his trains, toys, and people. His favorite subject has always been his sister Autumn. They both love it. We’ve been saving the pictures and will have to do a post with some of his photos over the years.
That brings us to this weekend. His preschool had an Eco Rangers challenge. Luca needed to capture 5 pictures of wildlife. I lent him my camera and let him loose.
His first pictures were of some geese at his swim class. He was very quiet and stayed very still as they walked up to him.
After that we waited in our backyard for the wildlife to come to us. We have lots of flowers, plants, and bird feeders so it didn’t take long for Luca to snap some good pics.
One of our favorite and most common visitors. A Chicka-dee-dee-dee
Luca was playing with the zoom and caught some cool bee pics
This crow stopped by for a moment to see what was going on then took off
Finally captured the elusive humming bird. They had been buzzing by us all day. This one finally hung out at the lavender just long enough.
Luca B. The most wild of them all.
The kids had a great time at Auntie Libby and Uncle Andy’s wedding eating, dancing, seeing their friends, dancing, coloring, and some more dancing!
We got to see a lot of our friends too and it was a great time! Pizza, Chicken, Guacamole, Noodles, Fruit, and 30 hundred million pies… um yes … YES… and YES!!!
It was a fairly rainy day on Sunday but me and the little buccaneers headed out to Pirate Park for some plundering of fun
There are two ships, an island, and a sand pit with a rock path of water that flows down into it. The kids spent a lot of time building dams to block the water from flowing into their sand pit. They called several times for some beavers to come help them but apparently the beavers were too busy or were afraid of pirates.
