Happy Halloween!

Although it's actually a dragon costume, Micah insisted he was "a DINOSAUR. RAAAAARRRRR!"

Heather and Anthony threw a Halloween party in our old neighborhood, so we headed over there for most of the afternoon. Micah was already excited about his costume, but I think seeing the other kids in theirs made him realize this Halloween thing is kind of a big deal.

Much to our surprise, he really got into the whole Trick-or-Treat thing. He trucked from house to house, toting his candy bucket, and refused to ride in the stroller for most of the walk. He was actually upset when we decided to call it a night.

When we got home, he ate M&Ms for the first time in his life. His world is now changed FOREVER.

(Except for the allergies)
Sunday, October 17, 2010 - 11:59 a.m.

Although the afternoon temperatures continue to flirt with 80 degrees, Fall is still creeping along in the form of chilly mornings, hayrides, and changing leaves. This is my absolute, hands-down favorite season.

At the beginning of the month, Todd, Micah, and I visited Tate Farms for Todd's office picnic. It was our first time there, but I can guarantee you it won't be our last. Between the playground, the (real, live, cut-your-own-off-the-vine)pumpkin patch, the hayrides, the farm equipment, the corn crib, the giant two-story slide, and the petting zoo, there's a ton of stuff for kids to do. And although he had a good time this year, by next year Micah will be old enough to really, thoroughly enjoy it.

Focused on the airplane

Fall is the time of year when we finally get to really play outside, without the drenching sweat or threat of heatstroke. We've been trying to get out as much as possible, whether to play in the sandbox, go for a walk, or just stomp through the trees looking for pinecones and other interesting things.

What's dat, Mommy?  What's DAT?

Last weekend, we wandered up Monte Sano to check out the playground in the State park. This evening, we'll be meeting my sister and her family up there for a picnic. Micah's down for his nap, so I'm about to go load up all the supplies we'll need. I'm kind of ridiculously excited about it.

I've said it a million times before, and I'll say it again. I love Fall.

And you thought being able to name every piece of construction equipment was the worst of it.

Baby engineer

This is only a glimpse into how these so-called "civil" engineers plan to indoctrinate the children of America. One day it's dump trucks, the next it's Civil Engineering Magazine and science classes, and before you know it, they're voting for candidates whose platforms include infrastructure improvements. It's a slippery slope, people.
