Logan's field trip

Logan's class went on a field trip the end of September to Rockwood Nature Center. Mommy was able to go with Logan and his friend Hayden while Hayden's mommy watched Kayley! She took Kayley and Davis to the mall play center. Everyone had a lot of fun. First they sat and learned some things about fall and nature. Logan was very outgoing--raising his hand and answering questions, telling was cute.
One of the "stories" he told was about acorns. He told the lady that he and Daddy picked a lot in the back yard and he and Kayley play with them. They put them in the sandbox and the bucket but it rained one day and they had to dump the bucket out b/c it was full of water. Now they are all over the deck.

The Nature Center---bees. There is a small tube that leads to outside where the bees can come in and out of.
Afterwards, the class had a snack at the playground and then played for a little while!
Ms Heather met us at the playground and Kayley was very happy she got to play.

Virginia State Fair

Logan loved the State Fair so much last year that we decided to go again this year!

Logan rode a lot of rides this year! Some he liked, others he did this one
Loved the alligator ride
Preparing for the Navy
"Let us in!"
Kayley got to ride for free...but Daddy had to go on many of the rides with her
Construction workers

Logan loved this slide last year and wanted to go on it over and over again. This year, once was enough
Elephant ear! Not nearly as good as the Shepherd Maple Syrup Elephant Ears
Logan finally got to ride in a banana car!
Big rope/slide thing
We had a fun time...except for the major headaches Mommy and Daddy got. Mommy's was so bad that she decided to skip seeing the horses on the way out!

Trip to Yorktown Beach

One weekend in September, Grandma came to see us and we all went to Yorktown Beach about 1 hour away from us. Logan and Kayley were super excited!

We took a walk down the beach and sat on the pier where there were a lot of people fishing!

When we were done at the beach, we took the free trolley ride. The kids loved it! They thought it was like riding on Trolley from Mr. Rogers!
Thanks Grandma for taking us to the beach!!

Week of Firsts

While Grandma was here, Logan had his first day of school. He had such a great day--so much fun, loves his teachers, and loves having his friends Owen, Addisyn, and Hayden in his class.
When we got home, Grandma started working with Kayley on potty training. She has kind of been training herself but Grandma helped her really get it down! Logan showed her the little potty she was going to be using before we took him to school.

Big girl panties for Kayley!
After a week of working with Grandma, Kayley was pretty much trained! She has an accident occasionally, but she is doing great. We still put her in pull-ups when we go out just in case since she is so young! Thanks Grandma for your patience, attention, and mini-m&ms!
