This is mostly a photo dump so don’t get too excited.
These first pictures are from Hunt Club Farm back at the end of October (yes, again!). An organization at work has started doing Hunt Club’s Harvest Festival as an event. The first 50 kiddos even get their own pumpkin.
In other news… I was hanging on to a couple of gift cards from his birthday and I finally caved (I made it soooo close to Christmas) and bought him more Legos. Up to now he’s been playing with Josh’s Legos from the 80’s, which includes, “80’s something spaceship-man.” (If you don’t know what I’m talking about you need to watch this: The LEGO Movie (Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet Combo Pack)
I bought just a bin of bricks that had a few special pieces to make animals.
We’re Lego building fools. Actually, we mostly build, and he mostly takes apart.
For Thanksgiving we drove down to my in-laws near Charleston, SC. It was a fantastic visit, which we really needed because when we went at Easter it was a disaster with everyone getting sick and us leaving early.
I let Nolan forward face in his carseat for the first time on the trip. I thought he’d make a big deal out of it, but he made no mention of it. Didn’t seem to notice. I’ve still got him rear facing in my car since I drive him around the most, but when we put this seat back in Josh’s car when we got back we forward faced it.
One night, Josh and his dad put together the miniature steam engine Josh got his dad last year for Christmas. Nolan was fascinated. It was actually pretty cool to see it work.
Our night ended on a sour note at Carmella’s, though. I was super excited to try out a dessert bar, but the service was iffy and my dessert was “meh.” I did find out there’s another dessert bar in Charleston called Kaminsky’s, so we’ll have to check that out next time.
Overall it was a wonderful night and I can’t wait to do it again.
On Sunday we drove back. Hit some traffic on 95 and took the scenic route instead. It was actually really nice. The Nolan bear took a long nap which was nice, though he did wake up crying a few times when we had to slow down or stop. Thankfully he was able to go back to sleep.
Hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
