Bass Pro Shops is such a fun place! We are not into outdoors-y stuff or hunting at all, but it is still fun to go there and see everything!
Andrew is very rarely scared of anything. But he would not go stand by this bear and say cheese for me! Ha! So daddy had to go with him!
They have the neatest bowling alley there! It is like you are underwater and there are sharks and crocodiles where the bowling balls come out and it all glows in the dark! Andrew thinks he wants to have his birthday party here!
Daddy and Andrew played pool...
Did some shooting...
and played some video games!
Andrew liked crashing the car and Craig was really thrilled, as you can tell! Craig is really serious about these things! Ha!
After our fun time at Bass Pro, we headed over to Uncle Jason and Aunt Rachel's house for their annual pumpkin carving party.
It was a gorgeous evening. We ordered pizza and had apples with carmel dip and delicious pumpkin bars!
Andrew wasn't too thrilled about digging out the guts. I thought he might like it more this year, but he still doesn't! It's times like these I really know that he may look exactly like his daddy, but he certainly takes after his mama! He doesn't want to be "messy"! Ha!
Daddy scraped the sides so Andrew could dig out the guts!
Andrew also helped daddy do a pumpkin for Kerigan!
She wasn't that excited about it! Ha!
As usual, the adults end up doing all the carving while the kids play! Ha! They pick out the designs but we do all the work! This year I even had to get in on it since we have 2 kids now! I carved a cat for Kerigan!
Aren't they neat? I love the McQueen one! Craig did the Scooby Doo for Andrew. I was just happy I didn't have to carve Cinderella! Ha! I'm sure next year my daughter will want something super complicated so I was happy to pick a simple cat for now!
Andrew has always been into skeletons. Ever since the movie "Elmo Says Boo" and sings the song "bones bones bones bones... bones inside of you!" So he finally outgrew his skeleton pj's that he's been able to wear the past 2 years! I got him some new ones that should last a couple more! And of course I had to get Kerigan her own too! Ha!
My best friend Alissa had her baby boy, Jack, on Monday! (I know, she doesn't look like she just had a baby, does she?? So jealous!) I was so excited to get to meet him and snuggle him! He was so tiny! Way smaller than Kerigan ever was! She seems huge to me compared to this sweet little guy. I am already missing that newborn stage! Ha!
I just took this picture of them the other night and thought it was so cute. Andrew crawled up in her crib with her and they were cuddling! Andrew thought it was so fun! He didn't want to get out!
