So I had to actually take a picture of this or years later I wouldn't have believed it...but Hunter enjoys cleaning. I was cleaning the kitchen and he came in and said he wanted to help...gosh who was I to stop him. Matt was going to his sisters house and asked Hunter if he wanted to go usually it is a no-brainer answer) but he said no and that he wanted to stay and clean. I know this phase will end one day but my house and I am hoping and praying it doesn't. Now what will we clean next?!!?

Gotta love the bright sun... Hunter rode about 15 minutes with his rag on his head to hide the sun!!
I know I know.. we are bad parents, we are just now taking Hunter to the zoo for the first time. Matt and I really wanted him to be at the age where he understood where he was and was active in the activities. He is really into animals and so we figured this was the best time (also we had a coupon that was about to expire so that helped make our decision even quicker). Hunter was very excited to go see the animals.. since he wakes up at the crack of dawn we were the first people at the zoo. We got ready as fast as we could because he was asking us every 5 minutes if we were leaving and my patience could take it too much longer J (I still love him though!)
Before now Hunter loved the idea of some animals but was not fond of actually touching them.. well that has completely changed. He fed and got to pet a giraffe!! I couldn’t believe it. I will be honest with you.. how many times in life do you get to feed and pet a giraffe. It was a blast! The Daddy giraffe was close to 15 foot tall. My Gosh!
Thank goodness he got to ride the train.. I think of everything he could have sat on that train and rode it the whole entire time. We had to beg him to get off when the ride was over with. I wonder if Santa can fit a real train on his sled for Hunter this year?!!

They had hay barrels stacked up for kids to climb on and slide down. Hunter wasn’t too sure about this but he did think it was fun to jump and hope that Matt was there to catch him! (he tends to jump even if you aren’t looking...so you always have to be on guard)
He was so funny trying to pick up “his” pumpkin... he would barely try and then tell me or Matt to do it because it was too “heaby”
So what is up with boys and rocks!?!? No matter where we go if there are rocks.. he is satisfied.
This year for Halloween Hunter went as a train conductor. When the costume came in the mail he was very excited about it.. then all of a sudden he started going through a phase where he only wanted to where green shirts and if it was not a green shirt he had on, it was definitely something he picked out. Well considering his pickiness now..he did not want to wear his costume. Grammy convinced him that he could not get candy if he does not wear it... well candy was the best word because he was all excited then, thank goodness!!!
Gosh they are so alike..on the same foot, left arm down, right arm up... it's like looking into the future :-(
