Red Wagon Farm

Today was another Friday that I had off, and we went to Red Wagon Farm for their Family Fun Friday.  There was a hay pile for jumping, a corn maze and a wagon ride.  We also visited the market to get popcorn and some pumpkins.

Taiko's stuffie

A couple of months ago Simi asked me to sew with her, so I got a book and after making a pin cushion and a case for her iPod, I decided to make a small stuffed animal for Taiko.

Taiko in the kitchen

Taiko loves the kitchen.  Especially opening the cabinet with tupperware and getting to our drawer of plastic plates and bowls.

Yuta & Taiko and Taipan & Gizmo

Gizmo loves to curl up in blankets, and jumped on the chance to take a nap with Taipan on the couch.

Taiko finds Gizmo's food

This is the first time one of our kids has gone after pet food.  We've had cats since before Taipan was born, but he and Taisim didn't have much interest in the cat food or water.  However, Taiko thinks it's kinda fun.  When he got there, I debated get him away from the food or get the camera?  Camera won of course ... then I got him as soon as he grabbed a fistful of dog food.

More Taiko

Cute pics Yuta took of Taiko drinking some water.

And me giving Taiko a quick bath in the kitchen sink.  I'm not sure why, but he's not so much into baths anymore.  One evening he was playing with the faucet water so I took the chance to do a quick fun bath.

This is our new dog, Gizmo.  He is a six year old Jack Russell Terrier mix.  Our friend fostered him for a week and raved about him, and I had been waiting for the right time to get a dog, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  He fits right in, and is terrific.

Taiko Exploring

Taiko has found lots of interesting things lately - the refrigerator, a drawer full of cups, bowls and plates and most recently the stairs!  He is fast and getting more comfortable exploring further away from us.  We have to be on our toes now.

Park Day!

I am trying out a new work schedule where I work four 10 (or more) hour days, and have Fridays off.  It worked out that the first week of this schedule coincided with a park day organized by one of our homeschool friends.  We met up with friends, then Simi went home with a friend of hers, while one of Taipan's friends came home with us to play.  We all also went to Menchie's for some yummy frozen yogurt.

Taiko was also there, only in the sling, so he missed out on pictures.
