Sunday funday

What a beautiful day! We took advantage of it and had a funfilled Sunday today. After church we ate one of Caroline's new favorites, a cheesesteak at J Michaels (a favorite of mine too!).
Then we played outside for a while when we got home and posed for a few pictures.
Later this afternoon Caroline wore her Halloween costume to the Poplar Grove Halloween Festival and had a ball. There she rode a pony for the first time, went on a hayride (and actually sat still for the most part), jumped and slid on the inflatables (with my assistance-it wore me out but she could've kept going), and ran around squealing in delight.


We hope next weekend it just as fun!

Then there were five....

.....Grimes grandchildren, finally a boy to add to the mix. We spent the weekend in Smithfield and got to meet Brayden for the first time. He is precious, and Caroline loves him already. I think she likes not being the baby of the family now and enjoys her role as a big cousin. She kissed on the babies, Brayden and Margo this weekend and even helped Grandpa feed and burp Margo (unfortunately we don't have any pictures of that though). We can't wait to see everybody again!

Brayden's here!

Our new nephew Brayden was finally born early this morning, and we can't wait to go meet him on Friday. Caroline enjoyed looking at some pictures of him earlier and kept saying "baby, baby" Congratulations Greg and Leslie!

We've not been doing much since the last post. Travis took his boat out fishing, perhaps for the last time until spring, last weekend and posed for some pictures afterwards since we realized that we have no pictures of it. And of course Caroline got in on the pictures with him.

Caroline's been trying a few new things too. She helped me bake a cake the other night and quickly learned the best part.....licking the batter off the beaters! More recently she helped me make some chocolate pudding and loved it as well. She does like to eat, especially her sweets.

And she's definitely showing an interest in her baby dolls now, feeding them, kissing them, and pushing the stroller around the house, with or without baby in it.

Wisconsin

We took a short trip to Wisconsin to see Travis' family last weekend. Caroline had a great time with her Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles, and cousins up there. And she was an excellent traveler on the plane and in the car, so we can do it again sometime!
She enjoyed riding the 4 wheeler around the yard with Grandma.

Playing in the leaves with Wesley and Ava.


And she loved riding this bear!

We came back just in time to celebrate my birthday Tuesday, the big 3-0, gosh I feel old!

Rather than tradional flowers, the girls at work thought of decorating a cake with lots of 30s.

Our next trip out of town should be soon....as soon as my nephew Brayden is born! Hang in there Leslie!!
