Happy Halloween! Quick post with some photos from our pumpkin patch visits this month. We stopped at the stand on Clark/Ontario in the city and then also made a trip out to the suburbs to Sunny Acre Farms. I was really impressed with Sunny Acre Farms. There is so much to do for kids – food stands, rides, games, petting zoo, hay rides, gift shops, and more. They also do a whole Christmas market/tree farm in December and I think we might go to that this winter because I can’t believe how nice they had it setup for Halloween. Kennedy just woke up from a nap so that’s why she is zoning out in some of these photos. haha! She was so obsessed with playing with leaves though, that’s all she wanted to do. Russ carved Kennedy’s first pumpkin for her and I attempted to roast the seeds, but actually got them a little too crispy. We dressed Kennedy and the dogs up in their Lion costumes on Saturday (check out my insta for pics) and went to the little Halloween festival at a park down the street, but it freezing so we didn’t stay long. Overall it was a fun weekend, especially because OSU won and our ‘Nittany Lion tamer’ costumers were worth it. 🙂
I know I said I was ready for cooler temperatures, but wow did it get cold in the city fast! I’m definitely ready for layering sweaters, but I wasn’t prepared to have to bust my winter coat and uggs out yesterday. When I saw this light pink vest in Zara for Kennedy, there was no way I could pass it up. I think I say that about something every time we go in Zara, but they seriously have the cutest stuff for babies! The last few winters I’ve been buying a ton of sweaters from H&M. They aren’t super expensive and I like that a lot of them are already oversized so you don’t usually have to size up. I also got this sweater in gray because I loved it so much.
Happy Fall! It’s finally starting to get cooler and feel like fall in the city now. I really love this jacket from Zara! It’s super lightweight and it can go with almost anything! Lately, I’ve been very into backpacks. I’ve gotten to the point where I realize I don’t need a fully packed diaper bag everytime we leave the apartment. It’s easier to have a smaller bag, and especially since Kennedy is climbing/constantly on the move, it’s nice to have both hands free and I don’t have to worry about a bag falling off my shoulder.
I realized I haven’t posted in a while, but it’s been a busy last 3 weeks for us. It feels like we have been traveling non-stop and I’ve taken this week to finally try to get unpacked and get back into a normal routine. Even though I am so ready to start wearing my sweaters and boots, it’s be hard to do with the weather being in the 70s and 80s. I know I am breaking the “no white after labor day rule,” but I really couldn’t resist on such a nice day over by the lake. Kennedy is getting super close to walking and I was so excited when I saw that Salt Water sandals makes shoes for babies too. They are so comfy and I wore them our whole vacation at the beach. (They run a little large so size down/ the sizing is also sort of strange in general, I think I actually ordered a kids size, even though I wear a size 8 in womens). For this post, I’ll do a 10 things since I have alot to say about life lately.
