Photo Tuesday Extravaganza: Apples, Pumpkins, Pirates, and Clowns

Last week was a busy week. Here we go....

My mom took us apple picking at a local farm. I had never picked an apple before. Lame, I know. But in my defense, I have picked other fruits. Just not apples. Anyway, it was fun.
Little Boy was a little uncertain at first. It was his idea to get in the cart, though.

See? Farm. I don't know how big the farm is, but it looked...big.

All done. We only picked the one bucket-ful. Little Boy was so cute---my mom, my sister, and I would pick the apples; then we would hand them to Little Boy and he would run down and drop them in the bucket. He loved it.

On the day before Halloween, we went to my mom's house to carve pumpkins. Actually, my sister carved a pumpkin and Little Boy colored a pumpkin.
Here he is, Sharpie in hand. I was smart enough to put an apron on him, but not smart enough to notice his exposed sleeves. D'oh! Anyway, he colored all over that thing. It was awesome.

Isaac helped get the other pumpkin started.

These are the finished products. Nice, huh?

And then...there was Halloween. I posted earlier about not trick-or-treating, but we did dress up. For fun, I guess. Little Boy dressed up as a clown this year, just like last year, but in a different clown costume. Look:

This is last year. He wore Isaac's (and Isaac's brothers') old clown costume from when they were little tykes.

Arrrrrrrrrrrr. This year, Little Boy wore the clown costume that my siblings and I wore when we were little. How's that for family traditions? And from both sides of the family! But Little Boy did not just dress up as any old clown....

...he dressed up as a clown...that golfs. A golfing clown.

That wasn't really part of the costume, but he carries that putter around with him all the time. He wants to be just like his daddy, who is also a clown that golfs.


  1. How adorable!! Don't forget to visit my new blog :)

  2. It's ok...blogger is less ad cluttered...I just like the simple layout.

  3. CUTE blog and cute kid.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. I just had to come over here and yell, I LOVE HISTORY DAY SO MUCH! Did you ever go to D.C. and compete?

    My daughter won 3rd place last year and my son won 5th, plus $500. It was such a crazy amazing experience, and now I'm hooked.

  4. Oh cute! And I love the family connection of the costumes. My mom made a great big bird costume for me, and cookie monster for my brother...I wish those were still around for my twins! Oh well...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  5. Sweet! I love the concentration in Little Boy's face when he's working on his pumpkin. You have such a charming way of expressing things and it's obvious how much you love your family.
