My Dad came to visit us for a few days and it was sooooo nice! It was great to just hang out and let him and the girls get to know each other and for him and I to chat into the night after dinner. He's been too far away for too long, and now he is closer so we can all do this more often. We are definitely ready to have more Poppy in our lives - we have some hugging catching up to do!

We went to another pumpkin patch with friends and the kids loved it. It essentially was a family farm that they opened up to the public and have a few fun things to do with the kids like hay rides, slides, animal petting etc. I love all these fun activities we can do now that the girls are becoming more interested in the world outside of their direct existence. I was happy to support a self-sufficient family in the mean time (and even decided I want a few chickens of my own - though I'm pretty sure the rest of the compound would disagree).

Some of our best friends in Wilmington moved away this month and we are very sad to see them go. Zoe doesn't really understand this, but that means that her first true love, Ian, is gone as well... She still completely idolizes him, but he is getting to that age where he is totally too cool to notice (so it's probably a good thing he's not around to break her poor little heart during this phase). We wish Laurel, Nate and Ian immense peace and happiness in this new phase of their adventure and are happy to still call them friends!
