We stayed home from quilt market this past weekend. I was not ready to leave Max for that many days. Instead, we are enjoying fall and lots of family activities. The boys and I have been out walking and enjoying the nice weather. The fall colors were amazing, but were gone way too fast. The sunsets have also been amazing. Joel got a weekend away hunting with the guys and I had a night away with the Peterson girls. We ate out, painted pottery and went shopping. Max was the only boy allowed and he did pretty well on his first trip out of town (despite the look on his face in one of the pictures below). While we were gone Carter and Joel went fishing with Grandpa John several times. I don’t know how Joel did it, but Carter lasted up to 4 hours in the boat without going overboard, finding any hooks or throwing any fits. If you ask him about it he will talk about playing in the minnow bucket and catching “cwapies” and walleyes. Max is smiling and cooing for us. We are living life to the fullest, enjoying the precious moments, and trying to ignore the piles of laundry and toys everywhere.
Have I mentioned that Max is quite expressive? I love that picture. Is that wrong of me? We got his lip put back into place in short order, so no worries.
All for now. Thanks for stopping by.
