Pumpkin Carving

Sorry that it has been forever since I've posted something. Things have been a little wild around here.
On Sunday, we decided to do something fun with our little lady. We had a long and busy weekend, so we needed some downtime. OKW has been asking to carve a pumpkin because Special Agent OSO showed her how. We went to Publix and picked the biggest pumpkin we could find. OKW and I were amateurs at pumpkin carving, but CTW was a pro. I don't think I have even seen the inside of a pumpkin. I know I am so deprived. We all took turns scooping the insides. CTW and I carved the face(Ok, so I only did one eye). We put a candle in it and lit it. OKW loves lighting it every night and has showed it to everyone who has come by(even the UPS guy). It was a fun activity and may become a tradition. We may get a little fancier next year.

First Trip to Carowinds

CTW's boss decided to reward all of its employees by taking them and their families to Carowinds for the day. So we loaded up and headed to the Charlotte. OKW had her first experience riding rides by herself and was tall enough to ride her very first rollercoaster. She still hasn't decided if she liked the rollercoaster or not, but she loved the other rides. The park wasn't very crowded, so CTW and I got a chance to ride a few rides too. OKW was such a good girl and really enjoyed every minute of her day. It was a great day for us to spend as a family. Thanks to Bucky's for a great day!!!
