Irvine pumpkin patch

On October 16th we were able to make it out to the Irvine Pumpkin patch. I really like going here and luckily, so does Cayden! He seems to be having more and more fun the older he is getting which in turn makes it more fun for us as well =)
Of course the first stop had to be the train..

Ellie was soo interested in all of the hay she would not look up..

Cute little Frankenstein..

Always have to get a picture here to see how much he has grown..

Cayden and his cheesy smiles...

Cayden was anxious for the hay maze..

We decided to let Cayden ride a horse, which he was soo excited about and loved..

I also took Cayden on the hay ride for the first time and he loved that too..

Love these two..

The apple orchards

Back in October Mike by some miracle had a Saturday off so we decided to take advantage of it and head to the apple orchard! We both had never been so we had no idea what to expect. It was very busy, very very busy! Luckily one of the farms wasn't too crowded so we decided to stop there and sadly it was the only one we were able to go to (it was that bad)  At least the weather was great!

Love my sweet little girl..

We had fun in a big corn maze and let Cayden direct us where we should go..

The precious 3's

My mom had a great idea to have the kids pictures taken since Ellie was 3 months and Cayden was 3 years. They both did so well the entire time and we got some really cute pictures because of it =)

I'm officially...

A soccer mom!! Well was at least..
Back in August (will I ever catch up on blogging!?)  Cayden started soccer. Our city has a very inexpensive soccer program that is twice a week for a couple months, I was so anxious to sign our very active guy up! Cayden was really excited about it as well..
His first day!

We were not able to make it to the meet and greet where they announced that they would need shin guards so poor Cayden was the only one without them on his first practice..

Cayden loved the "stretching"

A lot of family came and supported him but unfortunately I didn't get pictures of everyone who came, but here are a few..

One of the practices they had some of the parents go out to play against them so Mike and Uncle Scott decided to go out..

After the last game they had a little award ceremony at Round Table where Cayden was awarded a mounds bar because he was mounds of fun =)

Cayden had such a fun time playing and looked forward to it every time it came around, he had pretty much no idea what he was doing, but learned a lot. And we all had fun watching!

L.A. fair

Mike and I were both really looking forward to the fair this year. We usually do the same old thing but this year we decided to take advantage of as many free shows as we could and finally get some fatty fried stuff. Well Cayden had other plans, he was in a HORRIBLE mood about and hour of us being there and we ended up leaving =( So this was what we were able to at least do...

We decided to go check out the pig races..

It was unfortunately very very hot the day we went which might not have helped..

We headed over to the petting area..

I had to feed Ellie so Daddy and Cayden went into the NHRA museum and hung out..

And sadly that was pretty much it =( Hopefully next year we will be able to do more but we still had a good time.
