Of course, I couldn't leave Landon out of all of this. I finally finished the cross-stitch for his room (it just took 15 months!!) I actually had it mostly completed before he was born, but then it took me a long time to put on the finishing touches and frame it.
So there you go!! We may not have a house of our own yet, but at least I got to be a little creative with these projects.

Landon was quite fascinated with all of the animals but didn't dare venture too close. His favorites seemed to be the birds (that's what he is looking at here) and the numberless amount of chickens running around everywhere. He tried to catch a few, but alas, he was unsuccessful in the attempts.
But the highlight of the day was perhaps this camel. By this point Abby had spilt the remainder of our animal food so all we had to offer the camel was this empty cup.
I guess the camel didn't believe it could possible be empty and surprised Jason by taking a closer look for himself.
(I LOVE the expression on Jason's face in this picture. Landon's looking a little leary about the whole situation.)
All-in-all a fabulous place to visit with little kids. They were thoroughly entertained as were we. I guess Labor Day to most people signifies the end of summer. It's been a great one, but I'm not too sad though because I LOOOOOVE fall! Bring on the cooler weather, the beautiful changing leaves, the vibrant colors, the pumpkin-picking and of course Halloween and Thanksgiving. I am ready!!!

Good thing we like green bell peppers, because we have a ton!! Unfortunately our tomato plant hasn't been quite as productive. It could be because Landon has decided that picking yet-to-fully-ripen tomatoes and throwing them around the yard is far more fun than just throwing regular balls. Hmmmmm????

After a well-fought game (despite all the penalties and turnovers) we were ecstatic to tally a win over the #3 team in the nation. What a great way to start the season and we're excited to see what's in store from here on out.
