The beginning of October...

For years now, it has been a family tradition for my entire family to get together with some of our closest  friends and spend a day up in Oak Glenn.  Normally, we have a picnic, play flag football or some other sport, eat carmel apples, pick apples, walk around downtown...etc.  However, with the craziness of life we weren't able to all go on the same day.  So, this year we went with just the Hofschroer family.  It was a really fun day and our boys really seemed to have fun together.  

I have to say it is crazy how much it has changed in Oak Glenn.  We went when I was a kid, but in my college years when we would go it was never nearly as crowded as it is now.  But, of course, as more people here about it, the more crowded it has gotten.  Luckily, we went early in the day so we missed a lot of the crowds.

This face Hudson is making kills us... we have no idea where he got the idea to do this cheesy face, but this is what we have been getting from him lately when we take pictures:
Hudson loved the apples!
After we picked apples, we went to grab some lunch with the Hofscroer's and afterwards our boys loved cooling off by playing in the fountain outside:

After returning from Oak Glenn, Travis and I were able to head out for a date night together.  We have been trying to cherish some alone time and some time of reflection on all that God is doing in our lives and the changes that are about to happen as our family goes from 3 to 4.  It was a really sweet night together.  (Also, at this point, I was a day shy of being 38 weeks pregnant):

A few days later, my sister, Summer and her boyfriend, Bryan took Hudson to Sea World for the first time.  Although, we would have loved to join them, I was thankful for the time to get caught up on a little photography work while they had him for the day.  Hudson absolutely loved Sea World and is constantly telling me stories about his day there:
