pumpkin patch

We've been wanting to take Brody to a pumpkin patch, so when the Rueckerts called to visit Pa's Pumpkin Patch in Long Beach we were super excited to go! After quite a bit of traffic we finally made it! There was tons of pumpkins and lots of carnival type games to play, and Brody loved it all, we could hardly contain him! Here's some pics of our night:

Justin took Brody into the petting zoo, and he LOVED it! He went running from animal to animal, wanting to pet them all! He had such a blast! I obviously stayed out and waited till I could lather him up with hand sanitizer!

Justin testing his strength! Luisa and I took the boys on the little train.

Brody climbed all over the big pumpkins despite the sign telling kids otherwise (hey he can't read yet). Another little family pic.

The night was super fun, and we loved watching Brody get so excited for everything! Once we started driving home, he crashed and slept late the next morning! Talk about a way to kick off the weekend!

a born leader

Well Brody didn't sit through any of the speakers during conference, but he got super involved during the rest hymn. I can definitely tell you that he didn't get his musical talent from me!

no fear of failure -or of falling

So Brody is a bit of a climber (is that really a shocker?). It never fails that you look away for a second, turn back, and he's pulled himself up on something in the room. His absolute favorite trick is to climb up the couch, onto the end table, and fall over the armrest onto couch pillows. So I decided to take some picture of his climbing this morning, this was all before his nap (it was actually just a mediocre day, not too much climbing). Oh, and if you were wondering if he's ever tried to fall over the armrest of the couch onto the floor, trust me, he has!

Climbing to see out the window, and later climbing to fit in the entertainment center.

Up unto the couch, then onto the end table, unfortunately I missed his free fall.

He climbs into his chair which is helpful, except he sometimes makes a break for the table.

He must want one of those FARMS church books on the higher shelf. Um, he also likes to climb up to make out with himself in the mirror. We're hoping he'll grow out of it before he's a teenager.
