This is Talon on Halloween night...trying to eat a sucker. I know, I'm terrible. He was tired, cold, crabby - and grabbing for my sucker! So I let him have it. Just for a second, I thought.
Yeah right! I took it away a few times and he got very cross! :)
This is Talon after I took it away for good.

Almost done. Inside I was screaming...."someone please take me home. i hate this!!!" Jon wasn't able to come with me, so I was the only adult with all 3 of the kids. Ben wanted to go inside everyone's house. Or hit their pumpkins. Or take their watering can. Simon was great. He just wanted to get to the next house!
By the way, Jon was busy with the new dishwasher installers!!!! Good excuse! :) Not fun for me, but good excuse! Well worth it!

He loves chewing on the bobble head guy.
He loves this squirty star.
He loves his brothers.

Here's Talon at Owen's cowboy birthday party.
Talon with my half-brother, Jake. I think Talon looks a lot like Jacob. I think I'm the only one though...what do you think?
Talon with Chloe. He LOVES her.

Choosing his pumpkin.
We had such a nice time together. The weather was perfect. I got to know some of his new friends and their moms. And the best part of all...there weren't any little brothers needing my attention. Four straight hours with my boy, Simon. I seriously cannot wait for the next field trip!!!

Ben, on the other hand, was scared of the horses and really wanted nothing to do with them. He pulled the reigns with Jon once, but this is where he was basically the entire time. The Tractors!!! Don't worry, I made sure there wasn't a key in it. :) Ben would have been driving that tractor down the gravel road in no time, I'm sure!
We managed to get one picture of him on the horse for about a minute. You can't tell, but he's screaming his head off.
Then we went to Cold Stone. That was the one thing too many, but all in all, it was a good day!

Talon is the 3rd child to use this bouncy seat. And the 1st child to figure out how to get the stuffed elephant into his mouth. :) He reached his arm all the way up and pulled the little awning forward and grabbed it. So resourceful!

Despite all the tiredness, we went to Lincoln Park Zoo last Saturday. It was such a beautiful day so we had to do something outside! All 3 boys really enjoyed it. We all did really. It was a little rough pushing the double stroller and/or holding Talon since Jon was rear-ended 2 weekends ago by a drunk driver. He's fine except for some pain in his lower back and neck but his car (the 1968 Rambler) is not. :( It couldn't have been the Explorer, could it?! It's just so sad.
Back to our day at the zoo...
Ben was a little nervous that the animals were right there. Especially with the lions. He put his shirt over his face and said "Scared Scared Scared"when it got up and started walking around.
Talon flying over Chicago - loving those 2 fingers.
My boys checking out the rhinos. They really liked those.
And a family picture. We don't get too many of those these days. Look at Talon holding his foot. So cute.
A Beautiful Day in Chicago with Happy Boys. Who could ask for more?
