Filed under: Special Events — Dad @ 11:16 pm

As part of the school Halloween party there was a game called “Jump on the ____ Square” where ____ was either Orange, White or Black. Cezanne loves to jump so this was something she really enjoyed… More about the party to come, but first :

School Parade / Party

Filed under: Just Everyday,Special Events — Dad @ 4:12 pm

Friday was the Halloween Party at School. There were games to play and then the “parade” to show off all the costumes to the other classes.

This “event” was open to parents and so it gave us a chance to see what Cezanne was like while in class and we got to her classmates and their Mommies.

More Dress Up

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 11:11 pm

I said me tried to maximize the use of the costume, so off Mommy & Cezanne went to visit and play with Chloe and the Triplets ( Tatum, Brandon & Mitchel ). The kids always enjoy getting together and playing.

Playgroup Dress Up

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 11:02 pm

Since the kids typically only wear their fall / Halloween costume for all of 30 minutes while they go up the street for some candy we figured we would extend the life of the costume a little by setting up a number of dress up play dates around the end of October.

It was the turn of the original playgroup that has all but dissolved now that some have moved and others are on baby # 2, but a great turn out to Lanelle’s party…

Pumpkin Farm & Petting Zoo

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 10:52 pm

Last year we went to a local pumpkin farm with a petting zoo and while most of the kids in her group were a little too young to really enjoy the animals, Cezanne did seem to show signs that she liked it and so we took here again this year, as part of Rhiannon Sizer’s playgroup…

Aunty Daleen and Chloe were nice enough to invite Cezanne & Lanelle to joining her playground at the local bounce town where the girls had a ball bouncing around…

Ouma Dress & Fancy Stockings

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 10:46 pm

While Ouma was here, she made Cezanne a beautiful little winter dress. It was only after she left that we got to wear it and so this posting is just for boasting… Ouma, thanks for the pretty pink dress, but pay attention to my fancy stockings…

Baking Again

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 10:41 pm

Cezanne seems to enjoy being part of the activities that we get up to. Rather than tell her ‘No’ and fight a fight we will never win, we try and let her help or be a part of the task / activity as best we can. Here Lanelle needed to bake and well as you can see, Cezanne needed to bake too…

Fair Oaks Farm – Cows Cows Cows

Filed under: Places Visited — Dad @ 10:06 pm

Hello y’all…

After Oupa saw a program on TV about a huge dairy farm here in the Midwest we thought we would try go visit so we got in the car early on Monday and headed off to Indiana and Fair Oaks Farm. Cezanne was a star on the 90 minute drive down south east and had such a good time playing with all the interactive exhibits. We watched a 4D movie about the farm and Cezanne got to sit on one of the many cows ( see photos ). She met “Mr Tree Man” who ( when asked ) says “Blah Blah Blah Blah”.

We took a bus tour of one of the 10 farms that make up the dairy, each farm supports 3000 cows. At any one point 2800 are on the milking schedule while the other 200 are dry. The cows get milked on a huge carousel three times a day – something quite amazing to watch !

When our bus returned us to the visitors center a baby cow was about to be born, just one of about 8 born each day. We rushed over to the birthing center and were able to watch as a new baby girl cow was helped into this world by the vet on duty. Cezanne actually understood what was going on as I tried to explain the steps and that the lady was helping the mommy cow and how the baby cow was inside the mommy cow and was about to come out.

We then had lunch and played on a huge outdoor jumping pillow – like a trampoline but shaped like a pillow, Cezanne loved this…

At this stage another baby cow was due so Cezanne and I rushed over to see if we could catch another delivery and again we saw the lady help the mommy cow.

With all this excitement Cezanne was exhausted but not eager to leave, it would have worked out perfectly and she would have slept all the way home it some idiot had not flipped his camper on the freeway causing an hour delay. But the little dear was such and angle and did not moan or complain once.

What a fun day 😉

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 1:48 am

Here I sit, minutes from 1am local time, working…

I am watching as much of the work I have done this year now gets put into play to push a customer into Production… I took some time off today and now with a few minutes to spare, updated the blog quickly with a posting from the end of September…

Hopefully things will slow down a bit and we can get some fun photos for the blog again !
