This weekend we went to the Harvest Festival at Filoli, it was hot and fun. They grow lots of apples on the property and I got to make apple juice, it was yummy and sour.

Filoli is a historic estate near our home that we did not visit until this year, we quickly realized what we have been missing and joined as members. This week we went to the Harvest Festival to enjoy the property and get in the pumpkin spirit.

Mama has been working a lot and is feeling a little sad so she has been taking extra time off work to be with us! This week she took me to the mall for Wetzel's Pretzels and even let me pick out a Ninjago LEGO set.

It is fun to explore our new neighborhood and to enjoy the great weather that the Bay Area brings in September. This weekend we went for a hike on the urban trail at the back/center of our neighborhood. The end of the path is near our grocery store so we did our weekly shopping and then lugged everything back up hill, but before Darby could endure the return trip she needed a resty.

NOTE: Now that Ewan is 6.5 these posts are up to him... aside from some spelling help along the way.

In this picture I am at a Cub Scout campout. I slept in a tent with my dad, and me and my friends made a tent out of wood (pictured). At the campout we went fishing a lot, we hiked, and we played tag. We also got to shoot bb guns, and arrows with a bow. I learned the 3 rules of shooting: always aim at the target, always treat a gun like it is loaded, and keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.

The boys were away at Scout Camp this weekend so we had girls' weekend, which included some shopping, another viewing of Incredibles 2 (for Auntie's sake), and treats galore. It is unreal how big this lady is getting and soon she will be like the twenty-somethings behind her in this picture talking about their drama.

6.5! To celebrate we had our traditional half cake and Ewan received a special binder for his Pokemon cards - Mama organized them by type and put them in alpha order, and Darby made a cover with a custom drawing of Pikachu! Ewan was so excited and Grampie was here to sing with us.

Labor Day weekend in Mammoth was just what the doctor ordered for our family - some time exploring nature, enjoying the fresh air, and getting some sun delivered. Of all the adventuring we did Darby's favorite was horse back riding, and while Mama and Daddy were huddled at the back of her horse pretending like they could catch her if she feel she did not even flinch at the idea. Her trusty horse Flicka kept her safe on the trail and was all we heard about for the entire drive home.
