Husband's 29th Birthday:: Bo Beau's

So yesterday was Sean's Real birthday, but since I had to work last night, I thought I should take him out tonight. It was so fun to go on a date without our lil shark :) One of my best friend's offered to babysit and therefore I took her up on it. :) We tried out Bo beau's and it was Delicious! Everything we had was worth bragging about. We started the dinner out with a couple appetizers ( brussel sprouts and cornbread madelaines) Sean enjoyed the steak and frites and I devoured the mac and cheese. It was all soo YUMMY! And oh, the ambiance was super romantical. We sat on the patio next to the fireplace under the twinkle lights.. and they even gave me a blanky to put over my legs to keep me warm! LOOVED IT! If you havent tried it. TRY IT! Its so cute and delicious and well totally on of my new favs in San diego. Its located in Point Loma/OB area.

Reid's First Halloween

Oh my gosh! If you know me, I am obsessed with holidays and now with a kid, holidays are even WAY MORE Fun than I ever have dreamed.. And it can only get better as they get older, right?? We had soo much fun dressing Reid up this year. Once I decided on him being a shark, I had to think of something we could dress up that would go along with the shark.. Well you guessed it, a shark-attack victim (sean the surfer) and a lifeguard( me)... dont mock the one piece..hehe :) We had fun doing a mini shoot at the beach in Coronado on Friday before attending a friend's halloween party.. The pictures of the Frank and Reid at the party are Priceless and the one of all the babies is Hilarious.. Cant wait to look back on this photo in the years to come as all the kids grow.

Today was Sean's birthday so we enjoyed a picnic in La Jolla and then I had to go to work, so Sean met up with his sister's family in Coronado for a little trick or treating. Jamie had the adorable idea of being Thing 1 and Thing 2 along with baby thing 3 ... and Christian as cat in the hat. So adorable!
Well hope you all had a spooktacular day! I am sick from the potluck we had at work. ICK! Sugar OVERLOAD!

More Pumpkin Fun: Date night with the Pykes

Yes, we went back to the same pumpkin patch. It was just too much fun to not go back. This time we brought our dear friends the Pykes. I dont know if you remember but Karrie and I were pregnant together and have loved watching our boys grow up together. We cant believe how big they are getting. It was really fun to watch the boys interact with the goats and try to eat the hay and show their personalities in all the pics. I love adding captions to these photos. Its hilarious. These boys bring so much joy to our lives. I am getting so excited to celebrate all the upcoming holidays as a family of three :)Happy Pumpkin picking!

Dads: "Ok boys, go ahead and pet the animals" Frank: pets reid, Reid Pets goat. hahaha!


Frank: " Hey reidster.. i think we could hop this fence and ride the goats if we're quick enough.." Reid: "nah.. man.. dont you see that scary white goat over there.. she's got her eye on us. We gotta just stay real still."

Reid says:"Ok frankie.. you go this way and ill go that way.. we'll be out of this maze in no time."

    Mama's boys
Frank: "Hey reid.. are you seriously eating that.." Reid: "Yea..mmm this corn is delicious."
Like father like son.
Frank: "Hurry Reid help me out.. lets steal this pumpkin".. Reid: "Im not so sure.. i think they are on to us"
Reid: " what the heck? after all that.. these are the pumpkins they picked for us..what a joke!"
Frank: " i know. this is so lame. mine is so tiny..i cant even see it over my big gut."

I heart Everything Pumpkin!

I love love love FALL!! It just always brings back such good memories of coming home from school and my mom having warm snickerdoodles baking and pumpkin candles burning.. Its just the best time. The weather cools down and the holidays are approaching and well I just love it. I love building memories. I love family. I love anything and everything PUMPKIN. My sister shares in this passion for Fall. So we decided we wanted to kick off October right. Down the street from where they live is an adorable little pumpkin patch. We met her family there along with my mom. It was so fun. It was a dollar for hayrides and corn mazes and then you got to choose whatever pumpkin you wanted off the actual vine. SO fun right? Well after the pumpkin patch my sister made us a delicious fall meal including: cornbread, pumpkin butternut squash leek soup, pork tenderloin with roasted pear and potatoes, and last but not least pumpkin apple crisp with vanilla ice cream! It was an Octoberfeast for sure. Make sure this fall you take some time out to enjoy the small things and make sure to bake at least one pumpkinny dessert.
