Sometimes last minute DIY costumes are the very best, and with Halloween on Monday--and parties this weekend--you're probably in need of something super easy. So, here are the easiest ones I found online, also including the costume we made a few weeks back (above) and we purchased mine and Brand's costumes in less than 45 minutes, with a toddler in toe mind you!
Our days aren't really complete unless we've been to the park or outside at least once, and with the weather finally cooling down--a little bit--we can almost completely live outside. One day last week Hazel had the park all to herself and it was one of those moments where she was so excited she didn't know what to do with herself. We pulled up to the park and she immediately screeched SLIDE! SWING! HIIII! She was so excited and started laughing her silly little laugh that she does when she's really excited, it almost seems like a fake laugh that's how silly it is.
November is almost here and we've finally made our way to the pumpkin patch. I think when you have a kid it's one of those obligatory things that you almost have to do. We traipsed around McDonald Ranch, over in Scottsdale, and I say traipsed because it was so hot outside that it was hard to get the energy to walk around. Why is Arizona being so horrible this year, bring me the cold weather!
Hazel rode some fun little bikes, had duck races, walked through a hay maze, "milked a cow", and we even got to take a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch--Hazel called it a train ride. An hour into the whole thing I started wondering why I live here and why I thought it would be a fun idea to go to this pumpkin patch, granted it would have been more fun with cooler weather, but seriously Arizona, just get it together!
