Thies Farm

We decided this Sunday afternoon to head out to Thies Farm to pick out a pumpkin or two. It was a beautiful fall afternoon! We got a few little pumpkins and saw some cute animals. The scene below was strangely familiar to me...

By the look on her face I don't think she really knew where we were or what was going on...

Ryan's First Trip to the Zoo

I can't believe that Ryan is almost 4 months! It's amazing how much she has already changed and grown. Just today she told us that she believes in a public health care system but hasn't seen a bill that she likes yet. Haha

She slept practically the whole time we were there so she really didn't see any animals, but I took pictures for her. She did manage to wake up while were leaving for some pictures.

Oh ma ga Ryan - LOOK OUT!!! Why would her Daddy put her in such peril?
And here's an Asian Elephant.

Grandparent's Day & Our 2nd Wedding Anniversary

I bet most of you didn't know about Grandparents Day. Well I did. (In your face Jay!!!) My parents were up from Florida. Not specifically for that day - Mike traveled out of town to Baltimore for business, so they came up to help with the baby in his absense. We had a great time and they were a huge help!
Above are Ryan's two Grandma's (biological anyway - she really has about 18 Grandma's - lucky girl!!). Grandma Neukomm on the left and Grandma Self on the right. Below is the devilishly handsome Grandpa Self with Ryan! A cute pic of Grandma Self making Ryan giggle. Too cute!

September 22nd was our 2nd wedding anniversary. Two years has gone by too fast. We went out to dinner at Annie Gunn's - a St. Louis institution that neither Mike or I have ever been to. It was the most expensive dinner either of us has ever had. It made Melting Pot look like a drop in the bucket. Grandma Neukomm and Granny Helen watched Ryan for us while we were out. It was the first date that Mike and I have had since Ryan was born. We really had a great night - but we of course missed our little girl. As soon as I walked in the door I had to go snatch her up and love on her!!
