Its been a long time since we posted a blog, and its nearly Thanksgiving already! October was a fun packed month, and the kids fit a lot of activities in the tenth month this year. On October 4th, the kids had their first field trip in Five Day Preschool to Upland Hills Farm, and I was lucky enough to go with them.  It started of with a hay ride to the walk though story book called "The Duck Farmer."

 After the hay ride we walked around and saw all the animals, the kids even got to milk a cow!

At the end of the trip we ate some lunch and played in the playground, Then it was time for the ids to pick out their pumpkins before heading home.

The next day we headed up to Grandma and Grandpa Huddas' house for the annual Oktoberfest Celebration. The kids got to play with their cousins and the grownups enjoyed traditional German Food and Beverages. The highlights for the trio was the hay ride and the Shoe Kick Competition. This year Katie was the big winner of the Shoe Kick!

On October 20th, we went to the Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo with Clay, Drew, Aunt Becca, Uncle John, Aunt Christi, Uncle Wayne, Aunt Mel and Uncle Johnny. The kids had a lot of fun Trick-or-Treating, seeing the shows and the the Haunted House of Reptiles. It was a tiring night, but the kids had a blast.

The Sunday before Halloween, we had our Church Halloween Party. The kids got to dress up again and played musical chairs for the first time.

Finally, we made it to the actual Halloween Day. We all went to Aunt Deb and Uncle Pat's house for Trick-or-Treating with Kevin, Conner, Uncle Tim and Aunt Robin. We also got to see Bryan, Shannon and Jack before they went out with their friends. We had a fun night spending time with everyone there, its a tradition we have done for the last 3 years.
