Schedule That Baby In Already, Oh Wait There Was Some October Stuff To Talk About
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.
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.
So after we had our fill of goats etc, we rode the circus train.
I crammed into one train car with Magnus while The Teacher had her own train car.
When we started moving Magnus wasn't sure about the lack of safety belts.
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.
She was very happy when the ride was complete.
After the ride, we grabbed some kettle korn to snack on while sitting on some hay.
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.
Once you were on the inside, it was just a corn maze.
Magnus loved running in it, and it was certainly a beautiful evening to be out here (wandering in a corn maze).
We never got lost in this maze, so no crazy stories to tell. It was just simple corn maze fun.
Halloween soon followed. Magnus was certainly ready to wear his second monkey suit for Halloween this year.
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.
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.
Overall, it was a fun Halloween.
So, with October gone, there's not much left to focus on but one thing.
Yes, don't you love it when you can be this organized? It's on.
