So my family never really did Halloween. And since becoming an adult, I haven't particularly wanted to get into it. However, this year, as the FRG leader for the Company... I really needed to be at the Battalion Trunk or Treat. As I wasn't at all inspired with costumes (he was a Sock Monkey for his first Halloween, skipped his second Halloween since it was raining... but would have been a golfer)... but this year, I just couldn't decide. We ended up borrowing a Dinosaur/Dragon costume from a friend who's 3 yr old has worn it last year. (and i remembered it being super cute).
Top it off... I carved my very first pumpkin this year. Needed something to enter into the pumpkin carving contest. So this afternoon I sat down with my pumpkin and my borrowed pumpkin carving tools (which, once outlined got set aside for a pairing knife instead).
So off we went to the Trunk or Treat. Dinosaur and pumpkin in tow. Don't you know... Caden got 2nd place with his dino costume in the contest for the 0-2 group. And I won first place with my pumpkin! How awesome is that! I don't have pics yet of Caden in his costume, those will be taken tomorrow night when we go to a friend's house for an evening of fun. I do have shots of the pumpkin though. Of course - GO GATORS... A Co Gators that is! :)
Can you tell I am proud of my pumpkin. I almost want to go out and carve another one! :) Oh, and there's a random shot of Caden at MeMe's last weekend.

Caden and a few of his friends (Alston, Kealy, baby Gunnar, Stryker, Stetson, and some GIRLS) all went to the pumpkin patch and corn maze on Sunday. A good time was had by all. Caden wasn't really FEELIN' the camera... but Alston was totally chillin' in front of it! ha! (There was also a cotton patch, which Caden took off into... that was fun!)
We went to the zoo last week with our friend Sally, her son, Kealy, and a friend of hers and her 2 kids. Caden, for the first time ever, REALLY paid attention to the reptiles and amphibians and spiders. It was cute! So, baby, that building with all the small critters... he loves it now! :) Am planning another zoo trip next week. Yup, taking full advantage of this membership!
So 2 weeks ago, Caden and I went out for the Just Plane Fun Day at Outlaw Field... which, conveniently is only a mile down the road! :) we had fun. He could push on a few of the propellers and make them spin... almost hit himself in the head a few times doing that! :)

shockingly enough, there actually was some surf. the locals started coming out when it was safer to get in the water... and they just kinda stayed... rain or shine (mostly rain)... as few as 2 and as many as 15... made me think of you, baby... wish you could be out there with them, and then making fun of how small the surf was... :) I love yoU!
