Just killing time...

I can't think of a better way to "kill" a beautiful October night...

Who has playground equipment in their backyard...from an actual playground?  The Walkers do! 

I took the kids to the Walker Farm in Hickman, and we couldn't have had more fun.

Not sure who's having more fun here, the kids or the driver!

Rowen held on to Maeson as if he was truly afraid he'd fall out, and 100% certain he could prevent it. So sweet, those little brudders.

This little boy, who recently upgraded to big boy underwear and wore them out for the first time on this night, loved his donkey ride!

This boy wasn't as sure about the donkey...

Have we discussed the boys' code language?  I don't believe we have...

They are not twins, but if they don't have "twin speak", we're all crazy.  They're exactly the same age, and boys, and maybe that's all it takes?  Or, maybe they just have a special brotherly bond.  Either way, it's hilarious to watch, and makes a mama happy :) 

All the rest of our kids are very close in age.  They all go through stages when a pair of siblings is really close in development on one thing or another.  They've all made up words and mimicked each other.  This is nothing like that.  This is a completely different set of vocabulary that no one else is allowed to use.  For instance: they call each other "Yi-yah".  We all know this, and teasingly try to call one of them by their code name, but EVERY time they will say "NO, I'm ROWEN" or "NO, he's ROWEN" and they will both give a look like they couldn't be more offended. 

Then they mutter to each other in their made-up words and walk off acting insulted.  It's. So. Funny. 

I think Rowen liked the chicken more than the donkey.


We did glow sticks on the hay rack ride, and finished 'er off with s'mores. 

By the time we got home, washed the campfire and marshmallow out of our hair and got to bed it was well after 10:30pm.
Totally worth it.
