Pumpkins, tractors, and more fall fun...

This past Saturday we took Ava to a local farm for fall pumpkin fun.  They had a lot of activities for kids including a petting zoo, barrel rides, corn maze, straw bail maze, corn kernel box (kind of like a sand box but with corn), straw pits to jump into, and of course pumpkins.  They happened to be having an antique tractor pull the same day and Ava wanted to go watch it before we left.  In fact, she wanted to head there first instead of getting a pumpkin but I wanted to get over to the "pumpkin" side before it got too packed.

and while I went to upload those I saw a few quick shots from Friday night that I need to share.

our first pinterest craft...we have done two more since but I need to get pictures.
 Pizza sauce + clean dress = disaster, so she wore a t-shirt for the evening
 This is how she loves on Layla

To further emphasize fall Ava and I took a trip to the park on Sunday to collect leaves and pinecones for more art projects.  Oh and for Mommy to get a chance to photograph the lovely fall scenery.

and of course I can't pass up an opportunity to capture this fall cutie.

 the bigger pinecones painted for a Christmas centerpiece (it was going to be fall but seeing as we have mostly primary colors in our paint supply it was changed to Christmas).  We are going to pick a few small ones from the tree out back and get some gold glitter for those.  Thanks to pinterest for the ideas.
 Why does she all of a sudden look way to big for her trike.  Poppie got it for her for her second birthday so I think I'll let her ride it for a few more months.  We can upgrade next spring.  Oh and she is wearing a paint smock...not some kind of funny jacket.

This week marks a big step for Ava.  Wednesday she moves up to the 3&4 year old class and I no longer go with her.  It's going to be an adjustment for her I'm sure but I hope she has fun with the older kids.  I'll post later this week with updates.  Her teacher is the older sister of one of my best friends from high school so at least I'm comfortable with that and know she is in good hands.  Well, this Momma needs to get pjs on her baby girl and head out for some late night errands to red box and cvs with Daddy.  Sometimes we are lucky and little miss goes to sleep in the car. 

Bye for now.
