Pumpkin patch

October wouldn't be complete without going to a pumpkin patch! I love the fall and being outside with all the leaving changing colors, and the cool crisp air. Its just a fun busy time of year. We took Connor to the big orange pumpkin farm out in Selina. They have a great selection of pumpkins along with a hay ride, petting zoo, hay maze and a barrel ride! He loved it all and we enjoyed some family time spent there.

                                                       He loved picking out his pumpkin
                                                              This boy is getting tall!

                                                                 Enjoying the hay ride
                                                       My too favorite people in the world!

We announced a while ago, but I wanted to put it on the blog as well!! We are expanding the Montgomery clan come this April. We are all really excited. Connor doesn't quite understand, but when you ask him where is the baby he points to my tummy. I know it will be a even bigger awakening for him once he or she gets here.  I am 17 weeks now and starting to feel human again. morning sickness really kicked my butt this time around. Zofran became my friend so that I could function, take care of Connor and still work.  We will find out in just a few more weeks right before thanksgiving if its a he or she. Either way it will fun for Connor to have a brother to wrestle with or a sister to be the big brother too! We will keep you posted on the announcement to come soon!      

Texas State fair

We have lived in Texas now for five years and we haven't ventured to the state fair since we moved here. We heard over and over again how you have to go just once and see how great it is, so we decided to give it a a shot a go this past October. They only have it for three weeks so basically anytime you go will be insanely busy. We went on a Wednesday and it wasn't bad, I was expecting much worse. We got in super cheap too! If you donate a few cans of food then you get in for three bucks instead of the normal 17. Anything to save money I am totally for! we had a  few corn dogs, some funnel cake, Connor went on a few rides, checked out the petting zoo, Connor got to be a farmer go threw this cute maze and do some shopping for his farm and ride a tractor. Then we walked around and enjoyed all the people watching which is one of my favorite things to do in a fair setting;) We had a great time. I wouldn't say we would go back every year, but I am glad we tried it and experienced it, the fair its self was pretty big and they did offer a ton of family things to do which was very nice! We had a great first experience at the fair!

                                                      Big Tex is giant and super creepy
                                                                  Feeding the goats
                                                      he loved riding the mini tractors!
                                       to end the day he got to draw on a pumpkin he picked!

3 Years Old

Connor turned Three years old in October! My has time flown by, I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. He is such a fun energetic happy boy, we are so lucky and thankful to have him in our family! He loves all cars, trains and especially planes. It's fun to watch him focus in on his toy planes and try and understand how they work and what makes them fly. He is starting to ask questions and really thinking about his little world and what makes it so. along with repeating everything little thing we say. Time to be extra careful on all the stuff we say now;) Happy birthday Connor we love you So very much!

For his birthday we had his cousin Ethan and Ella over and two of his buddies Keaton and Nathan out to this kids gymboree called Kid Mania with lots of places to climb and tons of slides, then back to our place for some lunch and cupcakes!
                           he loved opening his bedroom door to the decorations we had on there!

           This was the only good one i could get of them in one spot, before they all took off again.
                                                              Opening presents.

                                                                         cup cakes!  
 Connor and his buddy Keaton are only 6 days apart so we celebrated with Keaton on his big day at a fun bounce house! Keaton and Connor love cars his mom made them both this really cute shirt to wear on there birthdays!
                                                               cute birthday boys!
                                                 Loving all the time he had on the slides.

Connor started Preschool this year. We were both excited for this one;) Its a in home Preschool with a girl that I knew from the Frisco 1 ward, Bright Young Minds. He goes two days a week for three hours! Its so nice because it allows me to do some of my clients during those hours in the day.It was a really rough start he did great the first two weeks then for the last five weeks he was having a really hard time. He would instigate some bad behavior or hit and kick the other poor kids and just not want anything to do with anyone. I was really worried as to what to do but, we just kept at it and trying different things that would hopefully help get him to realize that not good behavior. I think he just needed some time to adjust to a new person telling him how its gonna be and getting used to her way of doing things. Thankfully for now he is loving it again and enjoying his time with Mrs. Kristen and all the fun things they get do!

                                         First day of Preschool! He was so excited to go;)
                                                     Gosh he is getting so dang big.

loves summer time, its one of my favorite times during the year! This summer was the first time we went peach picking here in Texas. So glad we went, one of Gerrets Co works  Victor and Antonella invited us to go with there family and we jumped on the opportunity. It was a hot day but we were ready for some good peach picking. Went about a hour North to Red River Peach Orchard. they had so many peaches since they didn't start growing till later in the summer. tons of the trees split in half because of the weight from all the peaches that were exploding all over the place.

                                                    Connor ready for some peach picking
                            the tree were so heavy with peaches the branches just gave out
                                                        trying to get the best ones!
                                     Connor was very happy to carry around his peach bucket.
                                     They had the most delicious peach soft serve. OMG it was good
                                                  Running around playing a little soccer
                                                         Enjoying some lemonade with Mateo
                     Since we had so many peaches it was only right to make peach cobbler!!!

            Thanks Victor and Antonella for inviting us we will definitely be doing this again!!

Some extra things we did!

Between all the other things we did on our vacation we were able to go to the Del Mar county fair with Gerrets parents! hang out with more cousins on gerrets side of the family and I got to spend some time with my closets friend Chelsea!
                          This was the only picture i got from the fair. I am so lame at taking pictures
                              Connor enjoying some wrestling time with JT and Cannon

             This was taken right after a melt down on the plane. we had a really really long day. with three flight changes, Yeah it was hard on everyone.
It was SO good to spend time with amazing friend of mine. I so wish she would move to Texas, but she like me is a California girl and its really hard to move away from a place like that. understandably of course. I miss you chels.

Lots of Beach time

We spent a good amount of time on the beach. you kinda have to when you are visiting southern California! I love and miss being by the ocean. I get sad when I think of the fact that our kids wont get the opportunity to be close to the ocean since we have put some good roots down in Dallas. It does make visiting all the better. Connor loves the water or anything to do with water pretty much,
so he didn't object to us going so often!

                                                          First of many days at the beach!

                                                              Enjoying the sunset
                                                             Walking along the pier!

                                                            Cole and Connor being silly
                               We were able to get most of us together for a bonfire at the beach

                                                                    Enjoying that smore
                                                           One of my favorite things!!!

The crazy fun vacation continues onto Disneyland! I was super nervous about bringing Connor he was only two at the time and wasn't sure if he would be over stimulated and just hate it all and go crazy. My brother talked me into bringing him and i am glad we did! luckily he did awesome and had a great time, no melt downs either!!! A big YAY for that. we were able to take him on almost all the rides to except space mountain, Indian Jones and splash mountain. Lucky there were enough adults around that we got to switch up taking turns going on all the rides we wanted to hit up as well. He also got to meet woody and Jessy from toy story he was so shy and excited that he got to see them! it was super cute. Disneyland you were awesome we had such a great time!!!

OF course Connor didn't want to take a picture
Not to sure he likes the jungle cruise
