Field Trip

Tuesday was DF's Pumpkin Patch Field Trip.  It wasn't a real pumpkin patch, it was better! They don't grow their own pumpkins there but they had plenty and to choose from and even more to do.

Family Farm is where we went and there was so much to do.  The May family is the nicest family!  I went there as a child to day camp and loved it and it seems to only get bigger and better. 


This group of kids is also special. They really seem to love each other and have a great rapport. The boys and girls play well together and have big personalities. They just seem to be the best of friends, I hope it stays that way for a long, long time.

The Basses take Disney

We went to California for to visit my brother and Lauren and to see their  new house in the Hollywood Hills.  It has a gorgeous view and I can see why they love it there.  It was so nice to be with them in their hood.  Franklin and I double dated to lunch at Chateau Marmont, and went to see Peter Gabreil at the Hollywood Bowl one night.  It was so much fun!  We also went to brunch on Sunday at The Sunset Tower Hotel on the Sunset Strip.  The restaurant was next to  their rooftop pool so guess who begged to take a dip in his shorts.  Jason loved that DF was living large in Hollywood, and he sure was!!
While we were there and DFB had just turned 4 we had to take the opportunity to take the short drive from LA to Disneyland.  It was all of our first time and it was a magical place!  David Franklin loved every single thing and was thrilled to be there.  We went to California Adventure Park the first night and stayed late (especially for us).  We went to Cars Land which was really cute but ended up being quite disappointing....we waited in line for 2 hours for the Cars rollercoaster and the main ride there and when we got to the front of the line, the ride broke down.  Mega bummer, but DF had the best attitude about it.  He even said, that was the ride we almost rode when he saw a picture of it the next day.  Excited that we "almost" rode it!
My mom came with us. She wanteded to visit Jason and Lauren, but she also wanted to see the kids at Disney.  We were so glad she was with us because Nora ended up with a fever, ear infection and a sore throat and was not herself the whole trip :(  Poor thing has never been well on a trip like that her whole life! Mammers and Nora hung out a lot while we took the big boy on as many rides as we could.  Disneyland was wonderful and had lots of them to do that was great for their ages, especially David Franklin's.  Nora was the cutest little Minnie Mouse though and got to ride rides and showed no fear at all! 
We had breakfast with the characters one morning and that was super cute!  We saw Minnie, Chip and Dale, Captian Hook, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, Tigger and Eore, the Monkey from the Lion King, and Max (Goofy's son; I had no idea Goofy had a son).  We also saw Goofy and Donald Duck in the park.
David Franklin's favorite rides were Buzz Lightyear, and the Mickey Moust Roller Coaster.  He loved the teacups as well.  While Nora was a little young (and not feeling her best), it was not as much fun for her, but David Franklin enjoyed every single second and drank up all Disney had to offer.  I have never seen him so excited in my life, which is a blast to see as a parent.  I think it was more fun for us to see him having fun than it was for me when I went to Disneyworld as a kid myself.  It makes Franklin and I so happy to see our kids happy!

David Franklin Bass is 4!

Can't really believe that my angel boy turned 4 years old today! Man, this age is FUN! He was thrilled with every little thing including the balloons and said 10 minutes into the day that "this was the greatest birthday he ever had!" He meant it! He wore a superman shirt and cape to school with his batman rain boots. He loved his outfit for school that he picked out.

We had cupcakes with his class, tennis lessons, and then had a few of our big buddies over for cupcakes again! We ended the day with dinner at Purple Cow with MeMe, Grandpa, and Mommie Boo.
It was a special day for a special boy that we love dearly! Our superhero that is!!

School party in Mrs. De Witt's class; gotta love him sitting in between the pretty girls!
Nora loves going to his class, she can't get enough of all there is to see and do!
The outfit that he chose to wear to school today.
