We woke up really early, and baked some pumpkin spice muffins from scratch. We packed up our muffins, some canteloupe and drinks, and headed out to our favorite local park for a cool breakfast picnic.
We went for a short hike. . . .
Owen's little legs ran as fast as they could, the entire time (thus, the short hike!)
The Monkeys gathered some interesting leaves, acorns and sticks (for later) and then played a bit on the playground. Owen was exhausted!
That afternoon, the older Monkeys made some artwork from their findings. . . .
Monkey 7's work. . . "Mr. Lettuce and Mr. Tomato."
Monkey 6's work. . . "Leaf Monster."
Monkey 5's work. . . "Another Leaf Monster."
Monkey 4's work (and my favorite). . . "The Waiter."
Monkey 2's work. . . "untitled -- it's just pretty."
