Halloween - Part 1

These Halloween posts are going to be packed full of pictures so be warned!!  I don't know why I feel the need to explain but anyway; my parents live in Virginia (soon to be New Mexico) so I never want them to miss anything that Brayden does or experiences since they are not here to see it themselves (especially holidays & special firsts)........not to mention I just love sharing photos of our little cutie!

Last year this was our Halloween & since I love Halloween I was very excited that this year our little guy would actually be able to enjoy it this year!!

We had quite a busy & fun day this Halloween; we started off meeting JuJu & PaPa for breakfast; the morning started off even better than I thought it was going to because B woke up in a fantastic mood after a not so peaceful nights sleep (teething) & then his red converse shoes finally fit him so mommy was ecstatic too!!


Playing peek-a-boo on the way to breakfast.......... 

After breakfast we went over to PaPa & JuJu's house to play & eventually nap.  Brayden enjoys their front yard & drive way so much; he & PaPa always walk to the mailbox to check the mail & also always go to the creek for a little spitting.  He worn himself out & went down for a nap; only an hour later he was up so we were off to have more fun!!

We went to Corn Dawgs for him to run around & play & enjoy all of the fall/Halloween festivities. He had such a great time just being able to run free in an open but safe environment. 

Right when we got there we HAD to get B a wagon to ride in.........
 & the whole day he was in it, climbing on it, or trying to pull it.

We of course had to slide for a while.............

& then they had the neatest zip line swing thing that he loved too......

He got to pet & feed goats.......

Pot Belly Pigs.........

 & even guinea pigs; he didn't really like them & when he say the pigs again he ran right for them.........

We went on a hay ride......

 which he seemed to really enjoy...........

But I think that Lance enjoyed it most of all; Brayden just curled up with him for almost the entire ride!!  It was so special for the both of them & for me too!!

 Brayden inspected all of the pumpkins he saw but none were as good as the one we already had.

He blew us kisses to let us know just how much he loved the fun we were having!!

We even managed to get a few family pictures; I am never in any of the pictures so it was nice. 



Lastly, we could not leave without having a funnel cake.........
did you know that this thing is almost 800 calories (so worth it)??

It was such an amazing family day & I think that we all enjoyed it (I almost cried like 6 times....hormones maybe; happiness DEFIANTLY); the only thing missing was Grams & Puddy!!  The day would have been PERFECT if they were there too! 

After Corn Dawgs we went to our house to eat & then get ready for trick or treating.....................
