Morning coffee

We went for an impromptu coffee walk this morning downtown Louisville with our neighbors, Melanie & baby Madison. As a side note, Quinn was wearing the most "diverse" outfit ever...a t-shirt from Maui (thanks Uncle Aaron & Aunt Jen!), socks from Alaska (thanks Uncle Cooper!), sweater from Bolivia (thanks Auntie Abbie!) and vintage shoes from the 80's (thanks Mom of Uncle Cooper's high school old-girlfriend Kayla from Illinois!). Whew! I am very thankful to have a job that is flexible so I can do random things like this sometimes. It was a little chilly, but still super fun! And Quinn loves having her freedom to run around and explore!

Happy wake up

Quinn usually wakes up from her nap happy as can be....somersaults in her crib are evidence of that! You can see a good one right at the beginning of this video, then at the end it's a monkey jumping on the bed!

Fall visit to Sunflower Farm

Quinn LOVED visiting the animals at Sunflower Farm again! We got to feed the sheep & goats, and see cows, ponies, donkeys & chickens. Quinn chased the farm dog all around yelling "Ba-ba" (translation "bark-bark") and only tried to eat the corn a couple times (see pic with my hand trying to catch the corn). They also have a rather large baby swing that is really fun. It was a great fall day!
