Some of our highlights from October (2015) included...
Starting off the month with General Conference!
We love the opportunity to listen to the leaders of our church. We spent the weekend in the comfort of our home listening to the Prophet and Apostles teach of Christ and ways we can better serve our Heavenly Father.
Daxton was such a sweetheart and let mommy and daddy listen with very few interruptions. He loved his new reusable sticker set which occupied at least an hour of his time.
The rest of the weekend looked like this...
wrestling with daddy, making pancakes with daddy, and going to a matinee with daddy...we LOVE Daddy time!
The next day we had friends over to watch the Sunday sessions of General Conference. Daxton was so excited to have friends to play with and us parents were excited those french doors kept the kids noises away from General Conference :)
In between sessions we grilled up yummy food, ate lots of treats, and hung out with our Floridian family. It was the perfect weekend for sure!

The rest of October was filled with LOTS of play groups and we loved every minute of it! Dax fully realizes now that play groups are mostly for mommy to catch up with her friends :)
We loved visiting Flamingo Nursery with friends to see all their fall decorations and activities. Dax loves his buddy Dean. They always have so much fun together and are so kind to each other.
We had a blast drinking yummy fresh fruit smoothies, picking out little pumpkins, and snacking on cookies.
Dax and Dean especially had fun making a massive pile of all the small pumpkins in the middle of the pumpkin patch.
Dax also got his very first light saber in October! He could not have been more excited and immediately started working on his jedi moves...pantless jedi moves.
We had so much fun at Flamingo Nursery that we decided to visit again with more buddies. Olive and Dax loved playing with all the small pumpkins and building a fort in the middle of the pumpkin patch.
They also loved exploring all the different plants and eating yummy cookies.

We also took a fun hayride pulled by a local farmer and his tractor. The kids had a blast looking at all the decorations and the farmer even let Dax pretend he was driving for a quick picture.
Fun on the hayride!
October was also the month of Daxton's good buddy, Levi's birthday. Kimberly threw the CUTEST Paw Patrol themed birthday party in honor of Levi turning 4. Right as we parked the car we noticed cute paw prints on their sidewalk leading us to their house.
The snack spread was SO adorable, all following the Paw Patrol theme and some even being served out of doggie bowls.
Kimberly led the kids in a fun Paw Patrol game...
And then we all went outside for the big adventure!
The kids were each given a job in order to help solve the case.
The kids had to use team work to help pull in Derek to safety from the canal. Daxton's job somehow led him into falling into the shallow water getting him drenched up to his waist. It was quite funny how he always manages to find the water!
Look at all these cute kiddos.
Everyone had SO much fun!!
We knew we were heading to Disney World's Halloween party and wanted the kids to coordinate. I wanted Daxton to go as a Star Wars character, so we started the process of introducing him to all things Star Wars. Since the real movies were a bit too violent for him still, we started by introducing him to the Lego Star Wars cartoons. It took him one show to be totally hooked! Within a few days he knew all the characters and has only talked Star Wars since.
He chose to go as Luke Skywalker and when his costume came in the mail he was beyond excited to try it on and start showing off his master jedi moves :)
October also brought a brand new hair color at the most amazing salon on Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale...after paying the bill though, I decided no matter how much I loved my experience, I couldn't afford going there every other month!
More play dates with buddies...
Plantation Heritage Park with Dean and Olive
They spent almost the whole time running up the slides and then wrestling at the bottom. We loved listening to their squeals and giggles!
I love Arianne's and Olive's expressions in these pics below!
Daxton also finished another round of swim lessons with his buddy Jack. He loved being able to swim with Jack each week and thoroughly enjoyed giving their coach a run for his money. Trying to keep these two focused was quite the challenge!
We sure love our little fish!
