Nice weather = A Happy Little Boy!

Deanna Rose Farmstead
Our little boy loves to be outside just like his daddy!  The past few weeks we have had some incredible fall weather. So we have taken advantage of it. One of Josiah's favorite places is Deanna Rose Farmstead. Now, being raised on a farm this isn't quite what I remember it being like as a child, but for Johnson County, Kansas its pretty great.  We spend a lot of mornings there as it is free Monday-Thursday!

Grandpa has instilled a love for tractors in this kid.

Another pictures on the tractor... he didn't want to get off!

Feeding the fish is another favorite activity at Deanna Rose.

He isn't afraid of the different animals and will walk right up and pet most of them, including this friendly goat.

Another great (and free) place we frequent is the Overland Park Arboretum. This is only a couple of minutes from our house. It has great walking trails, a small pond, and a lot plants and flowers. Not the best picture but the only one of have of him there.

Powell's Pumpkin Patch
Last week Steph and I took the kids to the pumpkin patch.  We had a lot of fun picking out pumpkins with 4 little munchkins.
Josiah and his cousin Zach. These two have become quite the pair lately. They have learned to say each other's name and rarely let the other out of sight if they are together.

The best picture I got of all 4... I hope Steph got a better one. There was just too many pumpkins in all directions to look at.

Josiah just kept walking and walking.

Ahhh... finally the perfect one! Or at least one that looks good for a picture.
We had a wonderful afternoon with some of his cousins. Hope everyone else has been enjoying the wonderful weather.
