My Girl's THREE !

My Girl turned 3 this month ! We celebrated by playing at the neighborhood playground with friends and ate pizza & princess cupcakes ! I also planned a
princess playdate for her and did 2 princess crafts ! We love our girl... Maddy!

Collecting Leaves...

In The Apple Orchard...

Apples !

We did pick apples again this year ! A little disappointed that we were later in the season getting there... and were only able to pick 1 variety the day we went. We picked golden - green " Mutsu" apples! They are delicious ! Soooo juicy... that the juice from the apple drips down your arm when eating ( sometimes) ! We picked a little less than a bushell. Good old fashion apple crisp is my favorite !
I am NOT a pie maker ! I do love an apple pie... I should give it try one day ! And
although we did not get to pick the reds I had to take a picture of them on the tree!

Sunday at Fisher Park...

My goal this past Sunday, after church was to get some great photos of the kids at one of the many great parks in our area. I love this Willow tree by the creek. This always proves challenging with 3 kids... and their they are:

Jackson... loves to work the camera. He is indeed a camera hog ! Very photogenic !
I am happy that he is so cooperative, but then there are times when I
want individual shots of the OTHER kids... gotta remind him... "just
Grant in this one Jack.... "

Grant.... Really hates taking pictures.... he usually has this smirky grin on his
face or a really agitated expression. Very impatient... really hates
when I say " 1 more Grant" because this usually translates to 5 or 6
more and he knows this !

Maddy... LOVES to say " cheeeeeeeeeee eeeee eeeese ! " and she is so full of
energy that it is really difficult to get her to stand or sit still !

So, after some bribery and begging.... these are my pictures. I'm sorry to inform my children, but they are in for many more photos to be taken... it's Fall and there are so many opportunities for great pictures... memories & traditions to capture!

Thanks for looking !

What I did this Weekend....

Have you heard of Bakugan Brawlers yet ? They are the newest craze where I am living! As a matter of fact, Toys R Us held a " Bakugan Tournament" today! I took the kids... my boys " battled Bakugan's" while I watched & learned and Billy took Maddy around the toy store getting ideas for " little girl's " birthday coming up.
It was pretty fun to watch these boys play this game... and FYI, I think Toys R Us is the place to buy right now... Target & Wal Mart have been out of them for a while.
So, here's the scoop...

The Brawlers are spheres that pop open into mythological-looking warriors when you roll them onto the game cards. Bakugan combines fast-paced fun with eye-popping excitement to redefine the term "action gaming."

THEN, I thought it would be a great idea to check out the new LEGO store that just opened at King of Prussia Mall... BETTER IDEA... Go to the LEGO store when it's NOT Grand Opening day! There was a line about a mile long... seriously ! The store was so small, they could probably only allow a limit of 20 in at a time! CRAZY ! We did not stand in line... we will visit another day !

Tomorrow is Sunday and I hope to take a few good pictures of the kids after church.
If I am successful, I will post them!

I hope you had a great weekend!
