This pumpkin patch visit was the perfect thing for us to do today after being cooped up for so long.... it's a small farm but had all the things a kid could need to get a bit of energy out ~ tractors and pumpkins galore and straw bale pyramid and corn maze and bouncy house and a spooky haunted straw bale maze (which we only managed to get halfway through) πŸ’€πŸŽƒπŸŒ½πŸŒΎπŸšœπŸ’• #pumpkinpatch #thiskidandtractors πŸ’€find out more in stories ~ yes it's dark in the haunted straw bales πŸ–€

What joy was brought to us this weekend with my parents visiting (a trip they had already planned earlier in the month) during this devastating time for our community.... we enjoyed playing music and picking tomatoes and showing our garden and our wood pile for winter and dancing....always dancing πŸ‘πŸ…πŸŽΆπŸŒ²πŸŒ€thank you for visiting @artmeets

We've been stuck inside for a few days now due to the immense fires in our community πŸ”₯and it's all about the organization of the tiny toys in daring configurations....the more daring the better #colemanbooneorganizes more in stories

It's difficult to know what to do with oneself when the devastation surrounding our community is so great.... any cheery sentiment seems a bit hollow and even the common greeting of "good morning" seems wrongly used for a friend who lives closer to the flames ~ or being sure to tell a friend to enjoy their trip to celebrate their son's birthday with family away from this tragedy ~ or calling your local health clinic to check on a bill that was sent seems so insignificantly unimportant but I was assured that the staff there are still working and supporting their own staff who are affected and she reminded me to give hugs where they are needed as I said my goodbye ~ or wondering how and when to go into town to do our weekly rituals of laundry and grocery shopping and maybe even activities like the park without feeling irresponsible by taking your kid outside in this horrible air ~ or learning that 20% of the students at a friend's school where she is a director have lost everything ~ or that a large proportion of my own husband's students have lost everything ~ and other friends who have lost everything ~ or recognizing the domino effect that this is going to cause for a long time on where people are going to live and work and learn and play in our community ~ I can't help but feel so emotional about everything that is happening OUT THERE when I'm hunkered down in our home OVER HERE.... my heart is hurting πŸ’” #tubbsfire #santarosafire #ourfrontdoorisred

The sky is a sickly yellow and the sun is a glowing red fireball because there are wildfires raging in our area.... we are safe ~ for now .... but I've already heard that friends have lost their homes πŸ”₯ πŸ˜”for now we are home and I'm wondering what to pack into the car should we need to evacuate.... #tubbsfire #santarosafire

The way a child fits into the nooks and crannies with limbs gracefully bending and dangling onto his mother's slumbering frame is something I'll love forever πŸ’•πŸ’€(especially now that he sleeps all night with only one wake up to crawl back into the big bed and into my open arms) #familybed #mysweetestsweetie #getintheframe

The best you can do with toddler photos...one is turned around one is confused on what's happening and one is running away screaming.... #getthetoddlersintheframe #toddlerportraits #papasandpollokids #whereskeene
A toddler group meet up....toddlers who lunch....🌯 πŸ’ž#colemanbooneanothermontholder #toddlerswholunch #papasandpollokids
Glad to have those special people in your life like "Uncle Yeti" ~ first our farm "coach" and quickly our dear friend ~ even though he immediately bursts into tears whenever he sees Yeti he always talks about him at home and how he pruned the apple trees and cuts wood and that he is coming to visit us....my guess is that this grizzled man is a bit of a mysterious legend to our kid just as his name aptly suggests πŸŒ²β„οΈ #yeti #theBFG #theBareFootGardener

Kids at the park ~ kids on trains ~ and kids in tents ~ Its interesting watching his growth when it comes to interacting with other kids....he loves running around and trying to get a bit of attention from other kids but he has yet to realize that sometimes other kids who don't know him don't necessarily want to play....today a girl at the park told him "I'm not playing with you!" after he excitedly grabbed her arm and said "hey girl!" And she ran off.... good thing the newish friends we meet at the campground later were all about jumping all together in the tent and having a grand timeπŸ•πŸ’ž#parklife #howarthpark #springlake #toddlersdontknowaboutpersonalspace

A walk down the road led us to the neighboring road that we haven't walked to in months and along the way we gathered in our basket leaves of oak and bay and ivy all in yellow and a single green one along with feathers and seed pods and a butterfly that was barely salvageable πŸ’› we are ready for Fall #letsgocollectnaturalmaterials What have you collected today? #childhoodunplugged #naturecollection
