Pumpkin Patch

We headed to the pumpkin patch in October for our second annual trip with the Fulkerson-Smith’s.  This year we stay much closer to home.

Family photo! Oliver slept through the whole thing!

Mmmmwwwaaaaahhhh!

The Fulkerson-Smith clan (Kelin, Brett, Jackson & Kennedy)

 

The boys rode the train with Aaron & Brett.

 

The boys are always willing to hug on command. It’s adorable.

Playing in the hay.

Jackson climbed up a huge slide all by himself! The kid has no fear!

Bounce house!

Note- we do actually have more clothes for him than this striped onsie.  Apparently we like to take photos of him on striped onesie days.  We’ll have to work on that.

Friends and Family

We’ve had many visitors over the past few weeks who’ve come to meet Elijah.  Below his great grandma Gladys and great grandpa Alan get a look at the little guy.  Unfortunately his cord stump had just started bleeding right before they came so they didn’t get to hold him. 🙁

Jill stopped by and gave Elijah his first baby adjustment.  She successfully made his hiccups go away!

Thanks also to Hayley, Steph, Fish, Amber, and Jean who came over and  I forgot to get out the camera.

We really did put him in his little sweet pea outfit but I guess we forgot to take a picture of him in it.  This is the best shot I can find.
