Zoo Boo and Carving Pumpkins

 Last month we went to Zoo Boo at our local zoo. Ruthanna was a cat for Halloween and Andrew dressed up as an M&M for Zoo Boo.


 Carving pumpkins:  Ruthanna enjoyed watching Andrew make a fancy carving of a cat and was interested to see the progress as he was doing it.
 Finished product. Ruthanna colored on her pumpkin while Andrew was carving on his!   :)

Cooking with Ruthanna

 Making pizza with my little girl is always a hit. She likes to put the toppings on and pile them high!


 She also asks to make our corn casserole from time to time and will pretend to make it in her play kitchen. She's excited when we make it in the real kitchen.

Finished pizza and ready for suppertime!

Before Andrew left for work...


The last two weeks before Andrew left for work were  busy, but we had fun. We went to the state fair one day. Ruthanna liked looking at the little animals in the petting zoo type place.

We went to the children's museum one day in Brookings. Ruthanna always loves going there.  They had fishing that day so we did that and then came inside and did the other activities. The grocery store is a favorite!

Pictures from earlier this summer....

 We went to Storybook Land for a day before Andrew left for the ship last spring. Ruthanna loved the little slides the most, along with looking at the animals.



 Visitors in June--the Hallahans!  Hannah came with three of her kids for the evening and the kids had a good time feeding the lambs.
