10 pictures on the 10th day of the month!

Monday was the tenth of the month, so I tried to document our day by snapping ten photos to show what we were up to. This is Monday, October 10th, 2016!

Monday was Columbus Day, so Keith took the day off work so we could continue our tradition of visiting Lemos Farms in Half Moon Bay with our friends! 

In the morning before getting myself ready (and the kids, and packing the diaper bag, etc. etc.) I tried to pull together most of what everyone will be wearing for our family photos next weekend. I'm trying to keep from having us look too "fall" in these pictures because I plan to use them on the blog as well as in our Christmas card. I'm not sure about my dress yet -- I actually bought 4 to choose from and can't decide!

Like I said, I packed the diaper bag, and as usual, I packed way too much stuff. Gotta have extra clothes for both boys, snacks, drinks, diapers, wet wipes, sanitizer, etc. etc. 

We started going to Lemos with our friends 4 years ago when Owen was Luke's age, and it's become a tradition we all look forward to each year! This cute little pumpkin cut-out is at the start of the farm and every year we get pictures of the kids in the pumpkin. The first year Keith (or was it me?) had to stand behind it and hold Owen up!

Lukey was very reluctant to enjoy much at the pumpkin farm. I tried a few times to get a cute picture of him sitting in a patch of pumpkins, but he did not want to be way from me. I'm hopeful I can get one of him this weekend when we go to Pastorino's Pumpkin Farm.

If you can get both kids in a picture, but only manage to get one to look at the camera it's still a win -- bonus points if they're smiling too! 

Owen was so funny about the goats! We've talked before about how goats might nibble on clothes and like to buck a bit, and O totally remembered all that, so he was kind of keeping his distance. 

We finally took a family picture that was not a selfie! Sure my sweater is all wonky, Luke isn't smiling and Owen is in the middle of jumping off the stairs, but it's still a good picture in my books. Reminder to self: be in more pictures!

Owen has told us many times that he really wants one orange pumpkin and one white pumpkin this year. He picked out his two favorite ones, and then we left them to hop on the train, and forgot to come back for them. Oh well! Good thing we have 3 more pumpkin patch trips on the calendar before Halloween.

The kid crew! You know what's really awesome? When your friends' kids and your kids really like each other and play really well together! It gives us excuses to get together and they entertain each other while the adults socialize. Also, can you spot Lukey in there anywhere? It's like Where's Waldo.

We always follow up our trip to Lemos with a stop for lunch at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company! They were still serving brunch, and Chilaquiles was on the menu, so of course that's what I ordered. I really want to make it myself sometime! It doesn't seem too difficult.

And that was our day!
