Pumpkin Carving

Today was so much fun. Me and Greg were both home so we all got to hang out and spend time together. So since it was a cloudy day we decided it would be a good time to carve some pumpkins. I thought Sean would help for a moment then run away and do his own thing. Well as you can see from the pictures he really enjoyed pulling all that yucky stuff out of the pumpkin. He was amazed that more and more kept coming out. At one point he tried throwing the stuff so that's when I knew it was time for me and Greg to take over. So me and Greg used are creativity to make three cute pumpkins for the whole family. I was very impressed by my pumpkin carving skills. I usually do a really bad job. So when it got dark we lite up the pumpkins and sat outside and let Sean just admire how that orange pumpkin was glowing. To make the night even better we finished it off with smores, cant ask for more than that.

Trunk or Treat

Well it was an early halloween for us this weekend. We went to the ward trunk or treat with I thought was alot of fun but sort of different. So what happens at the trunk or treat in case you dont know. People from the ward show up in their costumes and then park their cars in the parking lot where everyone proceeds to decorate their trunks. Then we all take turns going to each trunk and trick or treating for candy. Also of course we have a big chili cook off. What would a ward party be without food. So as you can see Sean was a Monkey and a darn cute one too. The costume fit him perfect with his huge cheecks and all. Me and Greg were boring this year and didn't dress up. But as you can see alot of other people did dress up and we loved their costumes. Sean was also loving that all his little friends were there to go trunk or treating with him. The best part about the whole night was that Sean kept trying to eating the wrapper of the candy he wasn't patient enough to let me take the wrapper off first. So this means any candy we have will have to be well hid.

San Diego Zoo

So on Monday Sean and I had the opprunity to go to the Zoo with my friend Mindy and two little kids (Case and Cameron). It was so much fun. Now that Sean is older and understands that they are animals and even knows the noises that some of them make, it made it so fun to watch him and his friend Case point and laughing at all the animals. The boys were great and even stayed in their strollers. Towards the end of the day the park got really crowded because it was free day at the zoo. So we all got stuck in a walking jam on the sidewalk at the zoo and everyone was trying to push and jump in front and no one would take turns. It felt like I was driving on the freeway. As you can see Sean was trying to tap on the window and talk to the monkeys, but they kept running away. Its fun to see how much Sean has changed since last year when we took him to the Zoo.
