Visit from Gramma and Aunt Molly

Daddy had parent-teacher conferences last week. Aunt Molly once again came to babysit me so Mommy didn't have to take time off work. She couldn't be here the whole week so Gramma came at the beginning, then they traded. I had lots of fun with them and of course, I got spoiled rotten!! The weather was perfect and we spent lots and lots of time outside. Gramma took me for a stroller ride every day and we went to the park.


They read stories to me...

Molly also took me to storytime at the library.
 Chasing bubbles!

We all went to the Red Barn Farm in Weston. We didn't stay too long 'cause it got pretty chilly when the sun went down. Not before I got to see the animals though...

Oh, and we carved lots of pumpkins too! Molly's working hard on this one...
 The finished jack-o-lanterns!

Getting a bite to eat before Molly heads back home to IA City.

The Zoo - What a bunch of animals!!

We visited the Kansas City Zoo today. Not only because we got in free (KC residents get free admission during months of October & November), but also because the CAT IN THE HAT was going to be there!!
How ExCiTiNg!! I even wore my Cat in the Hat shirt!
Once I met the Cat, I got really shy and a little scared.
I clung to Mommy's leg, but managed to get some pictures anyway.

Then it was on to see the animals. Right inside the entrance was an otter. I had a BLAST watching him!! He was playing with his ball and swimming all over the place! He made me laugh a lot!

We also saw lots and lots of birds. I liked these the best. They were climbing on the fence up close to me.
I think I still like the goats the best. We got some goat food and they were eating it right out of my hands!!
The zookeepers were taking these little goats out for a walk.
I had fun petting them and even got to brush them a little!
We met up with my friend Harper, who happened to also be there today. We strolled for a short time and got to see the elephants together.
I thought the elephants were neat too. We watched them eat their food.
I kept saying, "What's that?"... "Oh, what's that?" I was very curious.

We didn't make it all the way through before I fell asleep.
There was a lot of walking (in my case, strolling) and it wore me out!

Carolyn's Pumpkin Patch

We visited Carolyn's Pumpkin Patch today. There was so much to do, but I was worn out before we even got to everything! My favorite part was visiting the animals. I loved imitating their sounds as I watched them. Then I would laugh at myself. It was quite a scene! Mommy and Daddy took lots of great pictures. You can see the best ones below.

Waterfowl... "HONK HONK"
 Baby cows... "MOOOO"
 Chickens... "BAWK BAWK"
Baby pigs... "OINK OINK" 
Donkey (He didn't make any sounds) 
LOVED the baby goats... "BAAA" 
Banging on the pots and pans
My turn to pull the wagon...
