Pumpkin Harvest + Curling

Spread the love


What a busy day!

P1390041

Thank goodness Auntie Cindy brought along a wagon.

P1390043

No need to walk the whole time.

P1390044

Aiden just loved the atmosphere.

P1390047

But he’s not into the whole Halloween spirit!

P1390050

Now pumpkin patch he prefers.

P1390057

Time to pick a free pumpkin.

P1390058

Or not!

P1390061

Pumpkins big and small.

P1390062

Does he like small pumpkins?

P1390063

Something easy to hold and carry….

P1390065

Nope! He would just throw it on the floor.

P1390071

Don’t put bruises on them!

P1390072

Another kid will want it!

P1390073

Plop!

P1390074

Middle sized?

P1390075

Looks too heavy.

P1390076

Time to try find another one.

P1390079

Such a difference between a kid that is 2 or 3 years old.

P1390080

Aiden just kind of roamed around.

P1390085

And Emma would sit and take family pics.

P1390097

Even this little pumpkin seems too heavy.

P1390098

But he definitely enjoyed this pumpkin patch more than the one at Tanaka Farms last year.

P1390101

Last year it took him a while before he was even willing to touch a pumpkin.

P1390106

And he couldn’t walk on his own last year either.

P1390108

This time around he can’t keep still.

P1390122

I think next year he will realize and willing to pick one out.

P1390127

He was more interested in the signs.

P1390132

In the end Daddie had to pick out a pumpkin for Aiden.

P1390134

But Daddie picked a rather small pumpkin.

P1390154

But we aren’t carving the pumpkin.

P1390159

Instead, we are decorating it.

P1390170

That’s a first!

P1390171

Aiden was ready!

P1390172

He was most interested in the glue stick.

P1390173

But the glue stick was very weak and didn’t do very well holding up the eyes and other items.

P1390174

Daddie placed some purple poms poms – Laker color.

P1390175

Aiden just wanted to put different sparklies on the pumpkin.

P1390176

It was a bit frustrating, more for us parents.

P1390177

I’m glad Aiden was so focused!

P1390178

What a great family bonding time!

P1390179

I almost lost Aiden’s blanket today.

P1390181

What a big scare!

P1390182

End result!

P1390183

I’d say we did a pretty good job.

P1390189

Popsicle time!

P1390192

We didn’t realize we’d be here for so long.

P1390193

Need a little refreshment!

P1390194

We all sat around to allow the kids to eat a little.

P1390199

Aiden missed his nap time.

P1390200

He will definitely conk out later when we get in the car.

P1390202

We didn’t go to many other spots at the park.

P1390204

Otherwise, we’d probably be there half a day.

P1390205

Long lines!

P1390206

We much prefer to skip that!

P1390208

It was cold when we got there.

P1390209

But when the clouds went away, it was pretty hot.

P1390217

Aiden was not shy about having some popcorn.

P1390225

This is his second time having popcorn, first time was at Costco.

P1390226

Aiden definitely wants to eat more.

P1390227

These days he often has a serious look on him.

P1390228

He can eat grapes, including the skin part.

P1390230

That makes my life so much easier.

P1390235

The sweet ladies.

P1390240

Scare crow pic.

P1390241

Aiden treated the haystack like a slide.

P1390249

It’s probably not very comfy sitting on top of it.

P1390270

Free pumpkin glasses.

P1390276

I think Aiden was a little scared.

P1390279

Aiden the little fireman.

P1390289

He spun the wheel and won a whistle.

P1390292

We met Brandon on our way out the gate.

P1390317

A few months ago when we met, they were about the same size.

P1390330

Now Brandon is so much taller than Aiden.

P1390335

Tonight Aiden is not the one whose gonna have fun.

P1390336

It’s Daddie and his buddies (including Janice)

P1390342

Curling.

P1390344

Aiden kept wanting to step on the ice.

P1390346

He wanted to join Daddie.

P1390347

Daddie would take the time to say “hi”

P1390348

But they were very busy and hardworking students.

P1390349

Practice, practice and then games after.

P1390359

Daddie rode him with the Chans afterwards!

P1390372

Benny was also the photographer and videographer.

P1390373

It was very cold!

P1390374

Aiden was definitely not dressed warm enough.

P1390382

But Aiden didn’t seem to mind at all.

P1390383

He had 2 little friends to play with.

P1390388

We went to the play room with Dominic.

P1390389

Dominic wanted to leave soon after.

P1390406

But Aiden wanted to play and pretend to drive.

P1390409

But we got him out and talk a short walk around the hockey rink.

P1390415

We went up the stadiums.

P1390417

We basically went everywhere.

P1390422

Luckily I bought some bread.

P1390423

That kept Aiden busy for a short amount of time.

P1390426

This is Aiden’s first time sharing his toys!

P1390428

I’m so proud of him!

P1390433

He shared with both Dominic and Douglas!

P1390435

Is that what brings guys together? Cars?

P1390436

After they left, I played Cars with Aiden.

P1390440

When he wants water now, he always says agua.

P1390443

But of course his eyes were on the stick used for curling.

P1390445

If he saw one laying around he went after it!

P1390450

What good exercise for all of us today!
