Skateboarding (Part II)....

So I promised Mason that he would go out with his Dad and that they could skateboard together when he got home. (Otherwise he kept trying to jam it into my fridge...which isn't my idea of fun).

Here they are riding together and you can see Mason got in some solo rides. Mason loves the skateboard and cries when it's time to put it away.

Picking out Pumpkins...
We had a great time last Friday afternoon picking out our pumpkins for jack-o-laterns.

Mason made a bee-line for giant pumpkins; however, we decided that we probably would stick to pumpkins that were smaller than him.

He was very helpful in finding a pumpkin for everyone.

Our next order of business....Carving our pumpkins.

Blowing Kissess...

Mason wants to send a kiss out to his fans. Mwah. Mwah.

Mason was very proud of himself when he dug through a big pile (Brig cleaned out the back of his car) and pulled out the skateboard. He took down a few items in his quest for this wheeled item (he loves to push things on wheels).

He knew just what to do too when he got it you can see from the photos.

Luckily he doesn't go too far or try to do any tricks, so we don't need a helmet and pads yet.

Mason is a champion with his utensils. He is very determined to use them and he does an ok job (when he isn't trying to take food out of the serving bowl...which he does's just he keeps going back with the same spoon ).

Here he is mastering eating cereal in milk (as opposed to the way I try to serve to milk). As you can see the spoon got tedious in the end, so he opted for the dog approach.

At least I know that he learned the dog method from Koa and Riley...I'd be pretty embarassed if I said it was from me.

Pumpkin Patches...

We've been touring the corn field mazes and pumpkin patches around town.

We got a great pumpkin to carve. And Mason had a great time with all the activities. He loves to run through corn mazes...luckily he didn't get lost.

Shoeshine Kid...

Mason is a great helper. Today he thought he could help his dad by shining his shoes. I guess Mason was tired of looking at his Dad's unpolished shoes.

Mason's New Ride...

So Mason finally got a backpack so that he could travel in style on our hikes. Brig was so excited to break it in that he insisted that he had an assignment for school that required us to go into the canyon and hike to see the changing leaves.

So here we are (in the rain) on the maiden voyage of Mason's backpack. The leaves were beautiful...too bad the weather wouldn't cooperate.

Good Game...
We went for another hike (are you catching a theme to our new activities?) and enjoyed the moutains. We hiked around for about a mile and Mason caught a ride for most of it. The trail was narrow and next to a drop-off.

Mason would slap the trees as if to say, "Good Game."

Albino Alligator ?...
We made a trip to the zoo to see
the white alligator. He didn't move too much...I guess when you're a white alligator moving isn't something that is expected of you. We had a fun trip with Mason's cousins Ethan and Lily and my sister.

We also took a train ride. Mason loves trains. He says "choo choo" when he sees them. Isn't he the cutest?
