Darby 27/52 v4

We think it is safe to say that this is what the inside of Darby Moira's three and a half year old heart looks like.

Darby Moira - 3 Years 6 Months

October means pumpkins galore! This last weekend we went on a coastal drive for a stop at Pie Ranch in Pescadero and a nearby pumpkin patch. Then on Tuesday Ewan got to go to Farmer John's Pumpkin Patch in Half Moon Bay with his Kindergarten class, Mom and Dad tagged along as chaperones. Ewan loved the the experience beginning to end - the school bus, stories in a tee pee, a hay ride that ended in a field with pumpkin picking. At the end Ewan said, "Can Farmer John's Patch be our regular patch now?!" And Mom and Dad wondered how Kindergarten teachers do it.

So much seems to happen in October, it makes picking life's highlights harder. Last week Darby enjoyed a My Little Pony movie date with Sophia (her bestie), went on an ice cream outing with her Daddy, got a crummy Fall cough, and went to the pumpkin patch in an outfit she picked out herself, down to the shoes... definitely 3 going on 20-something Anthropologie model.

Fall break meant Fall Camp for Ewan... 10 days with 85 friends ranging from 5 to 12 years old, 2 field trips, dodge ball, rec swim, and a ton of new discoveries - topping the list were Scooby Doo Where Are You? and Harry Potter, both of which Ewan could not believe we already knew.

The boy's took Sunday afternoon for an adventure in the city, which included brunch and the Symphony. Ewan loved the music and said his favorite piece was Shostakovich's 10th symphony, and instrument was the bassoon. He was the youngest person in the audience, the next youngest was his Dad, and he is ready to go again.

What better way to spend Sunday Funday than with a game of Frozen Trouble, quesadillas, and milk with a side of dance party.

Walk to School Day meant a half mile climb up the hill, which equates to 15 flights of stairs according to iPhone's Health app... thankfully our new house is a flatter walk. When we arrived at school Ewan had some panda asthma, and he received a sticker and tote bag to commemorate the day.

There was no more a perfect play to be Darby's first than The Little Mermaid. We took the afternoon for a girls' date - had lunch at a diner and proceeded to the show, which she loved. We had only one ill-timed potty break when Ursula got a little scary. Aside from some awkward gyration, which was intended to look like swimming, the show was a win
