Trip to Whitney's Farm

I decided to take the kiddos to Whitney's Farm today for a little bit in between all my running around.
Of course, Lauren wanted nothing to do w/it, sigh....
Anyway, here are a few pics.

LOL Look at Braedon's face! Silly boy!

Can you tell Rylan loves slides?!

Love the colored corn & corn stalks this time of year!

Pumpkins! One of my favorite things!!

I thought these were pretty cool looking!

This is a huge blow-up pumpkin that has air blowing around inside it, they put a bunch of balloons in it & the kids go in & chase them around!
The kids love it!

This is inside the corn maze.

LuLu & Braedon on the hayride.

LOVE this pic!

We had fun but it was really windy which made it pretty darn cold, so we only stayed for a little over an hour.
We didn't get any pumpkins today, we will get some next Sunday when we go to Ioka Farm (another local farm) w/my mom & siblings & their families.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!!

Five Question Friday

Today I've decide to join in on Five Question Friday
over at one of the blogs I follow, My Little Life.

1. Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone?

Well, I do like both but would probably pick a bowl so I can add all the toppings I want to!

2. What three things do you love the smell of?

Pumpkin is a definite! I am obsessed w/anything pumpkin related!
Apple pie, just love the smell of a fresh baked apple pie!!
And, babies! Just love the newborn smell! Soon I will have one all to myself again! :)

3. Giftcards or no? (In regards to gift giving...)

I do like to give & receive gift cards.
Especially if you have to buy a gift for someone who you don't really know what to get them or for teenagers, they always like to go pick out what they want!

4. What sports did you play in high school if any and do you still play them?

I was a cheerleader in high school & I also was a dancer at one of our local studio's from the age of 8 until 19.

5. Were you in band in high school? What instrument did you play?

Nope, I was too busy w/dance & cheerleading. But I did play the violin in elementary school for 2 years.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Girls Weekend in Maine!

My weekend trip to Maine w/the girls was great!
It goes by way too fast though!
I got a good start on some Christmas shopping & even got myself a few things.

Here are some pics of the trip, wish I had taken more but I got busy shopping, lol.

We got there about 10 in the morning on Sat.
We start by shopping at the Kittery outlets.
There is a lot of them so we spend the whole day there.
That night we had dinner at The Steakhouse, which we go to every year because it is sooo yummy!

The next morning we went to this beautiful little place called Marilyn's for breakfast.
This is the view from our outdoor table this year!

My cousin Bridget posing w/this beautiful car.

First stop on Sun. after breakfast was:

The next 2 pics are views from Kennebunkport.

After Kennebunkport, we went to Perkins Cove then onto Ogunquit.
That night we had dinner at Angelina's, an Italian place, it was fab.!

Some fall decor in front of one of our favorite jewelry stores.

My cousins, Veronica & Becky.

Cousins, Becky & Colleen.

I had to sit down a few times because I got tired quick w/all the walking we did.

Colleen & I.

My sister, Sarah & I.

Just a random pic I thought was cool.

The 6 of us.

I'm missing Maine already!
We all had a great time though!
Lots of shopping, eating & laughter!
Now I can't wait for next years trip!
