Project 365 | 31 for 21 | 10.30.2011

The plan was to buy pumpkins this morning and then come home and carve them. Yeah. Didn't happen. My thought was to let the boys pick out their own pumpkin this year, but I didn't count on Ryan haven't baseball practice until 6pm every night this week. We got to WalMart this morning to find out all the pumpkins were gone! Gone!!! I went to the Little WalMart on the way to my photo session this afternoon and they had a grand total of 4. Now they have 2, because I bought 2! Didn't get to pick and choose much with that many to choose from, but oh well. So tonight, after I got home, the boys carved their pumpkins...







Ryan's had a crazy thick outer skin and was so hard to cut through. But we made it. I haven't taken photos of them outside all lit up yet, will have to do that tomorrow...

Buddy Walk Day!This year we went to the DSNetwork's Buddy Walk at the ASU Homecoming parade. It was still a little warm today, but mostly pleasant and we had a good time!


Miss Shauni (our/his friend and his respite worker - LOVE her!!!) met us there, hung out and then walked with us.



We were there early enough to look around alot before hand, but they didn't have the give aways and such out yet. Still lots of fun things to do...




Fun bean table at Shauni's major's tent!



Dude had to take Miss Shauni for a ride on the police motorcycle...


The parade started. Sparky's the Man!!!!





Then it was our turn to jump into the parade...


He charmed everyone on our side of the street giving the "fork" and high fiving people! I saw so many people smiling when they saw him! Made my heart sing...



Had to have a little ride the last bit of the parade.


We said good bye to Miss Shauni and headed back into the Kid Fun Zone for a bit.


We left and hit up IHOP for lunch before coming home. I had a photo session this afternoon, so had to get ready for that. It turned out well (I think!), now I have alot of editing to do! :)

Matthew & I stopped in at KMart (smart, as Matthew has to add in after the name due to the commercials) right after school today. I am in need of a new Halloween shirt and I didn't like the ones at WalMart, haven't made it to Old Navy or Target lately. KMart's right on the way home, hence we stopped. I found a shirt and a fun pair of socks. Of course, we couldn't stop there, we had to go look at toys. And in toys, we found the perfect accessory to go with the phone for his costume. And it was on sale. Meant to be? Maybe. It even came with a belt clip...   :)

We had to go to the library today to return/get new books. It's right next to a photo location that I wanted to scout out again, so I took my camera and we ventured in.
We found a touch of fall...


Just a touch though. Still so pretty though...



I found som pretty light, after Matthew mad a new friend there. His new little friend was quite charmed with him and started following him around instead of going with his Dad, LOL! After his friend and Dad left, I got him to still for me for a bit...





See the crane in the water?





I'm trying to get us heading back towards the car, but Matthew keeps hearing the ducks. I walk off a ways, trying to get him to follow me and from afar, I hear the ducks getting louder and Matthew going the opposite direction from where I was going. I knew what was happening - the ducks were leaving the pond and Matthew was in pursuit! LOL! I talked him into letting the ducks back into the pond.



After we walked off a bit, they left the pond again and headed back up the path that he had followed them on! They must of had a nest over there somewhere...

We really need to go there more often. It's so close to our house, so pretty and such an oasis in the desert!

I had been plotting this year's Halloween costume photoshoot during this week. Wasn't sure when I was going to be able to do it, but I knew that I wanted to try for an alley somewhere... something urban and gritty. Meanwhile - I was thinking about the "gray" photo (see below). I got out my stuff to do my gray shoot and Matthew is changing as fast as he can into his costume. So - out went the grungy alley and in came the front door! LOL!
Behold the Samuari...   Red Power Ranger Samuari


I actually think I'm glad that it all fell into place like it did!






LOL - he was so sweaty that we gave him "crazy" hair, as he calls it...




We came inside and I start working on something, come around the corner and he's gotten down the large mirror that I was using for my "gray" photo (the inside mirror from the 46" tv that we had... one of those really huge ones from years ago?) and is having great fun in front of it watching himself. Way too cute!


Later on, we went down the street for the Halloween Block Party. So much fun! They had the whole block blocked off and had games and music and food and dancing and so, so many people!!! The very best part was that we ran into Matthew's previous classmates from our home school that he hadn't see in over a year! He had so much fun seeing them and they were so excited to see him!!!! They all talked about it again with me today. So cool! :)
