Five!

I am five today! It is a good number to be.

On Saturday we went to Marbles to play while Mommy ran in a Day of the Dead 5K. Then we went trick-or-treating in a retail area. It was Trent's first time. He figured it out pretty quick.

Trent was sick today and couldn't go to school. We think it is because he is teething and has a cold at the same time. He only likes mushy foods and he says his teeth hurt.

Mommy picked me up from school early and we went to Toys R Us. I picked out a Trashies and an Octonauts toy. Then we picked up pizza and went home to party with Daddy, Grandma, and Grandpa. I made my own Jello cake yesterday. Today I decorated it.

I like birthdays!

The Halloween Capital of the World!

Mommy and I went to Minnesota for the weekend! The weekend started with her picking me up from school early. I got out of nap time! Then we went to the airport.

We arrived in Minneapolis at dinner time. We went to the Mall of America (MoA) for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. Mommy and I collect pins. After dinner we went to the amusement park there (Nickelodeon Universe). It was a special "black out" night for Halloween time at Nick Universe. They dimmed the lights and put out blacklights so things would glow. My favorite ride was the Wonder Pets one. We also went to the Lego Store and they had a shockingly huge helicopter made of legos!

On Saturday morning, Mommy woke us up early. She had a Halloween 5K in St. Paul. We almost missed it because a road was closed on the route and we had to take a much longer route. Mommy didn't seem to mind, but I was cranky because it was cold! The race went along a river and we got to see the St. Paul skyline. I sat in the stroller while …

Fall Michigan Fun

Last weekend Mommy and I went to Michigan. Mommy likes to go every October to a Halloween art show.

We arrived on Friday and made quick time to the Amazing Deli, a must eat for Mommy. I got a stomach ache at the science center we visited after that and cried to go back to Grandma and Grandpa's. Fortunately I made a full recovery in time for cupcakes that evening.

Grandma and Grandpa give me a bow and arrow set which was exactly what I was hoping for.

The next day Mommy left at 6 a.m. for the show. I decided to sleep in. Then I went to some woods in Cheasing for Great-Grandpa's 92nd birthday party. Mommy met us there after the art show.  I picked up lots of acorns to feed Grandpa's deer.

I got to meet a real police dog - Mommy has a cousin who is a police officer.

On Sunday Mommy ran 10 miles. She is training for a race. We went to Johnson's Giant Pumpkin farm. The best thing there is watching the donuts being made and then eating them. We met up with Mommy's child…
