Happy Fall

We hope that everyone is enjoying this fall season - we have definitely been having lots of fun, especially around here in Cincinnati these last few weeks. It is hard to believe that our family is about to go from 3 to 4 very fall - we will have to get 2 boys pics together with the pumpkins - let the fun times begin!

More pics from the Pumpkin Farm

Look at me on this tractor all by myself!

Little bitty chic - so cute! And we didn't choke it this year (yikes... remember last year?)

Loved riding on the Fire Truck - and ringing the bell!

Daddy had to help push - as our legs are not long enough yet.

Look at those pigs - and boy did they stink

Love this photo - look at all those pumpkins!

Look at all the pumpkins we picked out - getting back on the hayride to head back.

Pumpkin Farm

Two of our favorites - fall weather & going to the pumpkin farm (Burger Farms in Newtown).
The weather was fantastic today and Gavin helped pick out all of our pumpkins too. One for each of us, including Baby G #2, as he will be here before Halloween this year.
We had a great time and this is truly my favorite time of the year!

Dancin' with My Friends

We grabbed some dinner tonight at the Dilly Deli (one of our favs) and the Hansbauer's (minus Joe - we missed you) joined us for some yummy food on the patio outside. During our dinner, we noticed that the Marielders Group (elderly community group) was having a social event across the way. And boy was the music jammin and the old folks dancin! So after dinner we all had to join in! As we were leaving - yes they were doing the Cha Cha Slide - classic!
Thanks for a fun night!

Barber Shop

Scott has been taking Gavin to the Barber Shop he has gone to for a while - Mariemont Barber Shop (where we used to live). A fun outting for Daddy & Gavin together.

I had never been with them to the Barber Shop - so I went with them tonight. Such a big boy sitting there all by himself in an actual barber chair.

He thinks the trimmers (buzz noise) tickles too... so cute!
Gavin is growing up so much right before our eyes!
*And a little disclaimer - I have less than 2 weeks left before our new little man arrives. Hard to believe that we will be a family of 4 (and may I note - 3 of which will be boys) very soon!

Thomas & Percy and now Bertie

Gavin has loved Thomas trains for quite some time now.... and the train table that (aka - small tables pushed together from IKEA - yes, we get creative) is in our family room is literally played at every single day on multiple occassions.
Our newest Thomas friend is Bertie who is battery powered - and pushes around all the other trains. Little Bertie has been a huge hit at our house!
(and we will be using lots of batteries with this one for sure!)

Go Bertie Go!!!!
