Fall Happenings

Calvin is so excited for the pumpkin patch.  He keeps seeing jackolanterns and keeps asking when we can go to the pumpkin patch.  We told him it doesn't happen until October. 

A few days ago we went to our local fair.  The kids had so much fun.  The highlight was riding one of the kiddie rides, a helicopter that went up, circled around, and came down.  The highlight for me was the funnel cake.  

Yesterday we learned that Calvin is not allergic to any foods.  His blood work came back negative for allergies, which is great.  The allergist said that doesn't mean he isn't intolerant to some foods, just not allergic.  So, now we are going to try adding some fiber to his diet to see if that sorts out his bowel issues. 

Today we made a trip out to CALM, a local mini zoo with animals native to California.  The kids had a blast, the weather was beautiful.  They saw snakes, frogs, turtles, a big black bear real close up, coyotes and many other fun things.  They got to pet a snake, some goats, a donkey and some deer.  To finish the trip, we took a ride on their little train.  It was lots of fun. 

We are loving this cooler weather!  It's so nice to be able to open the windows and let the fresh, um...I guess that is debatable...air in.  Just really enjoying this beautiful season of life.
