Well, I wanted to let all of the avid followers (I think that would be a whopping 13 that have listed themselves as such), that because of limitations on picture storage, I'm having to move. I will have to upsize and or just move homes. So I'm building a new home...blog...much like this one and its name doesn't stray too far. So, if you'd like to see our continued adventures, then check back in a few days and see the same blog name with -partii added to it. I cannot upgrade to google+ in my infinite thriftiness, so this is the next best thing, that is free. Thank you for visiting and I look forward to your comments when you come to my new blog-warming.

Well October was a tremendously busy month and we ended it with a trip to New York City to visit Aunt Michelle with Grandma B and Aunt Rachael. We got their a day early and Aunt Michelle spoiled us with watching the kiddos the first night while we went and saw Wicked and caught a slice on our walk to the show. It was a great start to a great trip. The next morning we went to the Museum or Natural History which was so much fun for the kids to see dinosaur bones since trying to understand the size of these creatures is hard. Aunt Michelle was a great kiddo catcher because they were off to the next exhibit before we could even get into the first sentence of the sign at another exhibit. That night we got to celebrate Aunt Rachael's birthday with more NYC pizza (yum) and a tasty cake.

|Gotta love having taxi's running about everywhere.|
From here we headed up to the Hudson Valley to explore Washington Irving's Estate. We took a train from Grand Central Station which in itself is a sight to see. The kids loved riding on the subway. Once to Washinton Irving's estate we got to exlore and there was a fall festival going on so we partook in some games from his time like stilt walking and hula hoop. I was not getting my hula hoop skills on. I blame it on the belly and everyone was too scared to put me on the stilts. There were storytellers, puppet shows and scarecrow building. After we had dinner, we headed to Blaze which is a jack-o-lantern feast to the eyes. There are thousands that form animals and scenes and it was a stinker to take pictures of people and jack-o-lanterns so you just got the pumpkins, in a literal sense for those pictures.

I had to grab some fall pictures of Hayden and the kids together. I can't neglect this little guys sweet smile. If I wait until his birthday in January, I fight weather a little much for the length of time I like to have with him taking pictures. So I wanted a few more to add to those come January. Plus it was a great excuse to get outside on a beautiful day.
