We are SOOOO excited for Halloween and we have been enjoying walking around our neighborhood looking at decorations, we even grabbed our neighbor friend, Mason, to come and join us for some decorations peeping.
Sam is so proud of his bike riding...no pedals and no training wheels, sort of a hybrid of bikes. He is balancing so well today. I just took him onto a nice path near our house and he clocked about 4 miles, no sweat!
We went to a pumpkin patch about one hour outside of San Antonio, Love Creek Orchards. You can do everything here...you can ride ponies, ride a tractor, ride a train, and listen to country bands. We did it all, including making sand sculptures and painting pumpkins and running through a corn maze. Very fun, indeed!
Here is Sam dribbling around an opponent and really playing quite well. He just missed a shot on the goal during that game, but he tells me he just made 3 goals in practice today...so we are certainly improving.
Here was Sam's official photo shoot at soccer last weekend. He really does look like a natural. His team took a serious picture, then a silly picture, they were definitely having some fun. Tyler even got into the action with his big brother.
Tyler and I went to the zoo the other day. We rode the train and then visited the zoo with a whole host of Tyler's friends. This was our first zoo outing without Sam which was a bit sad for Tyler as he kept asking where Sam was...
We took the ladies to Sea World and had a great time (again). This time, we watched the beluga whale show, Azul, and got to take pictures with the performers. Since it is Halloween there, we also walked around searching for scary things, which were everywhere, the boys were in heaven.
Sam and Tyler have been thinking about Halloween since August, finally we unearthed some costumes and the boys decided to try them on for size. Luckily, for me, they fit and they were so pleased with the selections (yeah!). We have the additional capes with both outfits and Tyler has a Darth Vader mask to really add to the lion's 'roar'.
Honestly, it is sad to say, but I think that the boys walk better in my shoes than I do. You can see them going bug and worm hunting and then Sam was even able to help Tyler go to the bathroom with his heels on, very impressive!
The Heintz preschool bear, Doobie, came to visit us and spent a great deal of time sleeping in Sam's bed (we forgot to take him out with us all weekend). We went to Fiesta Texas as well and enjoyed some rides and visiting with Scooby Doo.
