October: Half Moon Bay

Arata Farms

Lemos Farm

In October Jason did the unthinkable: he woke up one morning and decided to ditch work to go have some fun with his family!  Why has he never done this before?  We went to beautiful Half Moon Bay to enjoy Lemos Farm, which is crazy on weekends so we have never been there.  We counted ghosts on the train ride and shared a big slice of pumpkin pie. At Arata Farms we got lost for a very long time in the hay maze and slipped and slided in the ample mud.  Then we topped the day off with lunch at a great Mayan restaurant in town.  Dude, Jason needs to ditch work more often!

October: Apple Hill

Kimmie, Jamie & Michelle, friends since Middle School

These two crack each other up!

Which is bigger, the pumpkin or the belly?

Kimmie & Zoey

Michelle, Mikayla & Gary
I love that even though we all live a ways away from each other, we find a way to get together at least a few times a year!  In October we all met up at Apple Hill in Placerville and had a great time.  Reminders for next year at Apple Hill: don't go on a weekend and eat as much food as humanly possible!  It's so dang good!  PS:  Sorry Kim that your drive sucked so bad over Donner Pass!

October: Camping at Mount Madonna

Picking out his pumpkin


Very pregnant mama, and her cankles

Our last camping trip of the season!  So sad!  As always, we loved Mount Madonna and the beautiful California coastline.  Next time we camp we will have baby number two, and no migraines or nausea hopefully!

Things Ollie Says...

The other night Oliver started screaming in his sleep so Jason went in to check on him.  After Jason calmed him down he asked what had happened.  Oliver said that he had a nightmare that he had bad gas and he was terrified because he couldn't stop farting.
The fears of a four year old boy.

Oliver & Jason had so much fun!  They couldn't stop talking about using the fire extinguisher and hive fiving Smokey the Bear!

September: Kim & Travis' Wedding

In September some of Jason's good work friends, Kim & Travis, finally tied the knot at the Discovery Bay Golf Club.  We had a great time and the wedding was beautiful, but holy cow I realized it is not easy to dance while pregnant in heels!  Congratulations Kim & Travis!

September: Pinecrest

No he does not ride like this often, just the short drive to our campsite!

Rock Jumping at our campsite

Feeding the goats in Oakdale
We have not gone camping much this year due to how sick I have been this pregnancy, but we bit the bullet and joined my parents in Pinecrest, and holy cannoli I am glad we did!  We had such a great time! We took a motor boat out on the lake, watched a movie in an outdoor theater, swam in frigid waters, and had a great time hanging out with my parents camping!  One of the best weekends we've had since getting prego!

May: Mothers Day Adventure:Santa Cruz

Trolley ride for Oliver
