You can look at the preview of our pics. from today at www.tinstarphoto.com/blog/
Last weekend we went to the Celina Pumpkin Patch. Grammy and Papa came with us. We got to feed the animals at the petting zoo, ride the hayride, run through the pumpkin patch and ride a train. We enjoyed a picnic lunch in the middle of the pumpkin patch. Over all, it was a fun day together as a family.
Aiden did not like feeding the goats. You can tell by the death grip he has on his daddy.
Aiden did like riding the little train. Aaron tried to sit in it with him but as you can imagine that turned out to be a joke so Mommy got too. This was the first time Aiden was still for more than 5 minutes. He didn't move the whole time we rode around the pumpkin patch.

I'm sure you can imagine the sugar high Aiden had after this. Sunday afternoon Aiden and I decided to make some brownies. Aiden stirred while I put the other ingredients in. It took everything to keep him from sticking his hands in it. So after I pour the brownies in the pan I let him go after it.
I love helping mommy in the kitchen!

We had delicious Italian food almost every night but its not the Italian food you would think. We (Americans) think Italian food is Lasagna, Chicken Marsala but they didn't have any chicken and not much paste either. They ate mostly pork, lamb, and beef.
It was all good! We never had a bad meal. Tuscany is more beautiful in person than in the movies. Vineyards everywhere! Aaron took me to a beautiful town called Montepulciano
(where they filmed Twilight) for a romantic dinner for my birthday. It wasthe best birthday I have ever had (except for my 27th birthday which was the day I found out I was pregnant). We had more wine during this trip than we have had in our lifetimes. (which isn't alot- we aren't big drinkers) While we were in Tuscany we drove to different cities. The drive itself was gorgeous but once we got to the city we shopped, had lunch, relaxed and explored. I had a blast! I can't wait to book our next trip back.

I was asked to speak at one of the relay for life events this month and was approached afterwords by a mom who's daughter was just diagnosed with the same cancer I had when I was five. I was able to meet this young lady at Relay for Life. She was an amazing girl with a great attitude and spirit. I am happy to say that we hit it off and I will be taking her lunch at the hospital sometime this week. Praise God for his direction in my life.
Instead of reliving through that hard time and catching everyone up to speed I'm going to start from this point on. Fresh! And what better way to start than with Relay For Life!!!
