More Pumpkin Patch Pics

Pumpkin Patch Pics

We had such a great time today!!! It was beautiful weather, except it was VERY windy. The boys saw all kinds of animals. Owen rode a horse for the first time today. He didn't seem too interested in riding the camel - a little afraid of it (maybe next year!). They saw a lot of goats, sheep, pigs, turkeys, horses, a huge turtle, and much more. And of course, they saw tons of pumpkins and scarecrows! Too much fun!

Off to the Pumpkin Patch today...

Looks like nice weather today, so we're headed out to the pumpkin patch with the boys. Nate has already told me how he wants to decorate his pumpkin! Should be fun! I'll post pics later.
Nate got the 1st shot of the swine flu vaccination. I was very nervous about side effects, but more scared about him getting the flu! He had no reaction and so far, so good. He gets the second shot in about three weeks.

He is doing GREAT in his power chair. The new device is perfect for him and he is so happy when he's driving! Smiles from ear to ear the whole time. He has so much more control and accuracy it's amazing. Wish we had done this a long time ago! But better late than never.

Owen is such a big boy and a great brother to Nate! He helps so much and he's only 2! He knows Nate's routine and what comes next. He knows what buttons to push to start machines and turn alarms off - it's amazing! And he is so loving with him. Nate really enjoys his company. WE ARE SO BLESSED!

Our main day nurse, Jennifer, is on maternity leave and we miss her so much! Nate LOVES her, really, he has a huge crush on her. It's so cute. So, we've had some shortages in nursing and it's been a little challenging. We are so thankful for Jennie, our night nurse. At least we can get some sleep!
Thanks for checking in!
