the leaves are falling

We met friends for our first “Corn Maze” experience; a lot harder than you would think!  It took us two tries, but we had tons of fun and finally made it out.

We also joined the Wells and friends for their annual cider making extravaganza ;-)  So much fun!  This is Joseph’s third attendance (we missed last year) so he has a lot of experience, but it was surprising for me that he could actually help!

The young crowd inspired some apple bobbing, which is (like the corn maze) harder than you might think.  Maybe I just need to practice my fall sports more.

Joseph sure had fun playing with all the pretty ladies.

The kitties get a lot of love from Joseph, though I am not sure if they really enjoy all the pirate dancing.  We only have Bixby, the black one left at home.  It was very, very hard to let them go--of course I KNOW that we couldn’t have seven full grown cats at home it was still so hard.

Family visit, on a beautiful day, to Grandma and Grandpa’s new place in Shoreham.  We LOVE it and are beyond happy that things (finally—their Bristol house was on the marked for over 2 years) worked out so well.  For the first time they get to have the horses home!

OMG I thought I'd commented on this post already! I've looked at it like 50 times! Beautiful pics, as usual... I really like the tractor pictures! And it seems like a really good thing that Brad's family is close... for one thing you can hang out with their horses! Joseph is such a riot--I love the costume! Is he trick or treating this year? Where do you guys go for that? Bristol? And, yes, Sophia has a side part just like her mommy :) It looks better on her because her hair is so thick and has a little wave! LOL. I've thought a lot about doing bangs, but I don't think we will! For one thing, eventually I'm sure she would want to grow that out, and I remember growing mine out and what a pain that was (and how gross it looked!). So I think we'll skip them... am I denying her a quintessential bit of childhood??? And, sorry i haven't been stalking you--we need to catch up!

One more thing-- I have to say it: Joseph is a total cutie in the pic where he's kind of making a funny face and holding up the kitten (the pic on the right)... you know which one I mean? He looks -- don't get mad! -- totally Justin Timberlake-ish. Little hunk! He has an adorable little face :)
