Schedule That Baby In Already, Oh Wait There Was Some October Stuff To Talk About

11.04.2011

Plan

Yeah, things have gotten a little crazy with the impending arrival of #2. So, I might as well recap a few recent events before they are long gone.

Prior to Halloween, The Teacher, Magnus and myself made a visit to the Central Oregon Pumpkin Company's corn maze and festivities. The last time we visited was prior to Magnus' birth, so we figured it was time for him to experience it from the outside.

First up was the animal house.

October 2011

This was a chance for us to get nice and close to chickens, goats, a llama and a sleeping pig. Magnus wasn't quite sure what to think about some of the animals he knew from books, but not in person.

I enjoyed the chance to get some interesting photos of the animals.

I think The Teacher enjoyed getting a chance to relax for a moment.

October 2011

So after we had our fill of goats etc, we rode the circus train.

October 2011

I crammed into one train car with Magnus while The Teacher had her own train car.

October 2011

When we started moving Magnus wasn't sure about the lack of safety belts.

October 2011

The Teacher soon noticed that the ride was very bumpy. Not exactly the best thing when you are in your final month of being pregnant. She held onto to her tummy, and kept on smiling, while enjoying the sites.

October 2011

She was very happy when the ride was complete.

October 2011

After the ride, we grabbed some kettle korn to snack on while sitting on some hay.

October 2011

It was starting to get dark, so we knew we only had enough time for the maze (no pumpkin patch visit this year). There was a Star Wars theme (certainly unlicensed), which made it fun from the outside.

October 2011

Once you were on the inside, it was just a corn maze.

October 2011

Magnus loved running in it, and it was certainly a beautiful evening to be out here (wandering in a corn maze).

October 2011

We never got lost in this maze, so no crazy stories to tell. It was just simple corn maze fun.

October 2011

Halloween soon followed. Magnus was certainly ready to wear his second monkey suit for Halloween this year.

October 2011

Trick or Treating was another matter. He's been using his pumpkin to carry around toys for the last month. So, when he brought it out for trick or treating, he still had some toys in it and wasn't expecting much else. Magnus was also very cautious when someone tried to put candy in it, thinking they were going to take his toys. No worries, next year he'll be an expert.

October 2011

When he was trick or treating with other kids, it always seemed to go this way. Good candy for them (chocolate) and a sucker for Magnus. Seriously, half of the candy he got was suckers. Not a big deal for him, but The Teacher and I certainly noticed.

October 2011

Overall, it was a fun Halloween.

October 2011

So, with October gone, there's not much left to focus on but one thing.

October 2011

Yes, don't you love it when you can be this organized?

It's on.
