The days and months are flying by and I’m struggling to keep up! I’ve been meaning to post a blog for weeks!
We enjoyed several days in the Florida sun last week. We flew down with my family for a final hurrah before my parents took off for Arizona for the winter (rough life they have!). It was great to spend some quality time with our family, not to mention spend every day on the beach! It was Cal’s first time to enjoy the beach, you may remember us taking a trip last August with Chad’s family. But he LOVED it. He was completely fearless. He loved shoveling in the sand, but more so, the water. Gramma Frey showed him how to stomp his feet in the waves, splashing around. Grampa Frey showed him to “jump” the waves as they rolled in. It was so fun to see him enjoy it so.
Elena loves the beach too. She loves feeling the ocean breeze and standing in the waves as they crash against her. It’s an exhausting job for whomever is holding her, but it’s fun to watch her squeal in excitement when she gets splashed. We had so much fun and are already looking forward to going back next year. But first, I’m hoping for a mid-winter, when it’s bitterly cold and snowy praying for spring, trip to Arizona to thaw out and see Gramma & Grampa! Hint, hint Chaddy!
This past weekend, we made our annual trip to the Country Market Pumpkinfest here in Zionsville. Evan & Sam joined us, braving the unusually chilly temps to have a little fun. The boys loved going down the giant hill-slide, riding the “tractor”, seeing the animals and of course, picking out “punkins”. It’s so fun spending time with “Sahhhhhhm” as Cal says it, and watching them play together. They’re both just so cute! Elena had fun too. She got to go down the slide again this year with Mommy, which produced big smiles!
The leaves around here are beautiful. Another season flying by. We’re in such a good place right now. Cal keeps us all entertained and laughing with his spirit and Elena is loving staying busy. Hard to believe the holidays are creeping up on us. They’ll be sure to bring along more wonderful times and memories with everyone we love! So much to be thankful for, even on our tough days.
Here’s a boat load of pictures from the last few weeks!
