Water World

Went to the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City this weekend. It was a swimming paradise. I even went down the BIG water slides.

Mighty muddy

Dirt + water + an empty garden = the softest, squishiest, best mud around.

Swing from the trees

Dad added to the backyard swing collection with this awesome rope swing. I'm still a little bit too small for it and have trouble staying upright, but I'm sure it's going offer a lot of fun for years to come.

We were so happy when Mr. Squishy the Fishy came into our lives on Friday, but Lexi made a sad and startling discovery today. Tonight we held a funeral for him. Poor guy.

Applejacks pumpkin patch

Went to the pumpkin patch today. In addition to pumpkins, they had trains, and slides, and trampolines, and corn mazes and a host of other amazing things. My classmates and I had a great time.

Got the gear for the game

Can't just let my new cleats stay in the box or my shin guards remain in the package. Gotta give 'em a try.

Who you callin' ugly?

"The Ugly Pumpkin" is my favorite book to read in the fall. It's about a gourd who's feeling a little left out. My favorite line from the book? "Oh my gosh! I'm a squash!"
