fall-en' for you...

 we went to an apple orchard on saturday, it was a beautiful 70 degrees out!  it was the perfect day, cullen LOVED it there, he is such an angel baby!  

culley got to take some fall pics by pumpkins!  of course he was dressed all festively.   
daddy B picked apples for us all to sample. we had applesauce mini donuts, so yummy!

we got to weigh our little pumpkin!
22 big ones!! :)

i got to wear a cute fall dress i'd been waiting to wear and a pair of my new boots.
 toilet pics! ;)

we had lunch at a dive type place, good food and different atmosphere.  then we headed to target. we so rarely get full family days, i think the 3 of us were just soaking it all up!

at target billy and i were looking at car seats for cullen since we realized our 22 pound big boy has maxed out the weight on his car seat already.   some of the car seats, while in the front facing position, hold up to 65 pounds and others up to 100. without really thinking about it i said we should probably get one that goes up to 100 pounds.  billy then says to me, ann he is not going to be in a baby car seat until he is 100 pounds,  you weigh a 100 pounds.  ha! silly me....ok, i suppose we don't need a car seat that holds up to 100 pounds. & i don't exactly weigh 100 pounds but around there ;)
if any of you have a recommendation for a car seat, i'm all ears.
right now it's between a britax and a safety first air protect 65.

pretty tree in front of our home....

lastly, attempting to support our MN vikings on sunday - our little vike!

we actually had almost 2 full family days in a row, that's what weekends should always be about.  i'm so thankful when we had them.  time to go grab our sweet boy, he tends to bounce non-stop in his bouncer until he falls asleep!  and then continues to randomly bounce every few seconds after he falls asleep. haha!

p.s. i have a review post combined with an etsy post i'm planning to do as soon as the etsy stuff i ordered over a month ago arrives!  i'm growing very impatient.

We have a britax marathon and it's so easy to install. We were hit by a teenager back in April and our car was totaled. Hubs and I were all banged up and bruised. But M? Not a single mark or (THANKFULLY) any soreness or injury. Her britax seat saved her life. Britax is also the only company that goes above and beyond government requirements to meet their own safety standards. Their seats have the sane padding that NASCAR uses in their cars, as well. A lot of websites and companies offer discounts on the seats so you aren't paying the huge amount the higher end seats cost. Also, the marathon has extended neck support that you can raise the pads as the baby grows. So basically, the seat grows with the baby! We are pro-britax all the way, and have seen it's benefits!

We just bought a safety first carseat over the weekend that goes from newborn up to 35 pounds I believe. I'm hoping that will last us a year.

Cullen is SOOO cute!!

Colleen said...

Adorable orchard pics! I'm so in love with Fall - and those boots! Super hot!

We just put Flintstone in a front facing seat, I think it's an Eddie Bower one, but we got it because it had cup holders, would recline, and wasn't super wide.

Those boots are fabulous! Love them!

We have an Evenflo Symphony 65 and really like it. It does actually work as a booster seat up to 100 pounds, but as a car seat it goes to 65 pounds. The installation is a breeze too!
