Last Saturday, we visited one of our favorite places: Pumpkinland! The kids love running through the little corn maze that is designed for young children. They actually changed it this year, so it took us awhile to find out way out! We brought Daniel's friend Mady along for the day.
They loved all the colors and shapes of the ghords and dried corn on the cob.
Nathan was really into the fun this year. He loved it all!

Trip to the Visit Grandma

Last weekend, Daniel and Ashley took a special trip to the East Coast to visit Ashley's brother Dane and her Grandma Lil. Daniel was VERY excited to go on an airplane and stay in a hotel.

Dane is currently working on a project for Bank of America in Providence, RI. So, we got to stay in his amazing hotel for a night. It was so much fun. Daniel loved the indoor pool.
Dane was such a great host to us-- driving us around in his car, treating us to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, letting us stay in his hotel. We had a great time with him.
On Saturday we spent the day in New York City and went to the top of the Empire State Building.
Here we are on the lookout of the 86th floor.

Daniel got a little tired from walking from the Empire State building to FAO Schwartz (by Central Park). So, Dane tried to put him on his shoulders, but Daniel freaked out. (Dane is pretty tall)
On Saturday night we went to see Grandma Lil and Uncle Ted in New Jersey. Aunt Thelma is also pictured. Ashley's Grandma is 89 and not doing that well.

The house Ashley grew up in New Canaan, CT
Ashley was a few weeks early to truly see all the New England fall Colors. But, some of the trees were starting to change here and there...
Waveny Castle
Daniel and Dane went for a run around Waveny. We had a long drive from New Jersey to Rhode Island, so it was nice to stretch

Daniel loved Dane's new Subaru car keys. The remote had buttons that were different colors, which were a big deal to him. Daniel is still semi-obsessed with keys.
Which is how he got a tour of the cockpit of our airplane. He asked the pilot if he used keys to fly the airplane (he said no) and invited Daniel inside to show him how a plane works...
