It’s the final day – Day 31 of the Write 31 Days Challenge and my 31 Days of Gratitude 2016.
* * * * *
I can’t believe I made it to the end of the challenge. It was easier having a few free days like Throwback Thursday posts and Sunday quotes but at least I posted everyday. It was a good exercise and hopefully there was something in it that you enjoyed.
October is also a big month for family fun and field trips with the kids. There are always such sweet and fun memories. I think my favorite part of these trips are when my boys grab my hand or give me a hug or rest their head on me on the bus. Those little moments when they get some alone time with mom mean a lot to them. It means even more to me because I know how quickly these moments pass. They are all growing so quickly, it just makes me want to savor each moment and thank God for this present time. For that I am truly grateful!
Below is a collection of photos taken this month.
John-Paul and I visited Casa de Fruita in Hollister, CA with his class.
Riding the train.
You’ll often find a peacock (or five!) roaming the grounds.
John-Paul and I had a great day!
Matthew and I visited The Farm in Salinas.
We made some friends.
I LOVE the sunflowers!
Olivia the cow.
Mama went shopping.
Matthew found the perfect pumpkin.
The camera was a little too close for Matthew but he’s still my cutie!
And finally, here is the boys dressed in their Halloween costumes. Unfortunately, my sweet Bella had a stomach bug and spent the day in bed. (She is better now though.)
I hope you had a wonderful October!! Now that Halloween is over I am completely ready to turn on the Christmas music and start decorating for the holidays. 😉
