Playdate on Adler's birthday

For Adler's actual birthday, we went to lunch with one of his best buds at the art museum and then played for awhile.  I ordered Adler some noodles, but he ate my entire goat cheese and beat salad instead while his friend had a huge salad with salmon, funny kids. 

Lots of boys at a pumpkin patch

Yesterday we went to Rock Creek Farm with two of Landon's best friends from school and one of their little brothers (younger than Adler, but quite different in size.  Adler is on the very small side and Will off the charts on the other end).  We started in the large pumpkin patch where you can actually saw off your pumpkin from the vine.  Each boy searched through the fields finding the perfect one for them.   

 Will and Adler in the patch.

After finding the perfect pumpkin, these kids gathered all these pumpkins and carried them into a pile to "make a bench".  I'm not sure what the reasoning behind this was, but it sure was cute to watch them working together.

Eventually we made our way to the kids area where they had mazes, tractors, jumpy castles and a huge slide.  

Big brothers sliding together.

And their younger brothers together.  These two were cracking us up holding hands as they slid down the gigantic slide.  We have had multiple play dates with Will and they have never really connected until yesterday.  
 The boys played in the kids area until they all faded and we quickly left to get everyone fed.

House painting

This picture is from this summer, but I had to post it.  Landon and Adler had a friend over and were all playing in the backyard while I made everyone lunch. His friend came in to tell me that Landon was painting the house.  The boys have done this before with paintbrushes and water and so I didn't really think anything of it, but thought I might just check.  This was different, but pretty funny.  Landon had taken chalk and was coloring random bricks.  It is slowly fading, months later, but Brian and I have come to like the colorful addition in the back.
