Cohen, lately

Posted on by thedesignary Posted in Blog | 1 Comment

With this super warm and awesome end of winter/transition into spring, we have been getting out of the house a lot more than I even anticipated and it’s been great!  We have played outside, taken walks, gone to the park and even a super fun children’s museum. Note: some photos are pre-haircut and some are after.  Hopefully I can get my act together and get the actual haircut photos/videos here soon.  Because I held him for that, the photos are on Tim’s camera and Tim’s phone…so it’s more difficult for me attain those photos.

The Beginning

The following is basically a smorgasbord of our early days of 2012.  It didn’t seem like we had much downtime, but I’m also not exactly sure what we did…anyone ever feel like that?  No…just me maybe?

Dollinger’s Pumpkin Farm

Posted on by thedesignary Posted in Blog | 3 Comments

Every year before Halloween, my parents took my sister and me to Dollinger’s Pumpkin Farm – sidenote: every year I also tried to convince them that bringing home a calico kitten was a good idea…never happened – anyways, we always picked out our pumpkins, gourds, indian corn, etc.  Got the run around, go through the corn maze, and when we were older (and not scared) we went through the Haunted House.  It was always a great time and something we looked forward to every year.

Excuse the extremely poor quality of the photos below – they are photos of photos!

A few years later – carving pumpkins with Dad – never mind my pin up pose…

Cut to when Tim and I started dating – we still went every year, walked around, picked out pumpkins, etc. and always thought how fun it’d be to bring our kids someday. Last year we went and got our pumpkins (I was about 7 months pregnant with my own pumpkin) and we ran into our friends Brian and Emily.  Their  daughter, Brinlee (aka Sandy Olsson- you can view her starring role here) is 12 days older than Cohen.  We snapped many of these pics during our pregnancies!

So you can imagine our excitement this year when we got to bring our giggly, squirrely 10 month old boy!  We had so much fun, although he was initially unsure of being stuck in the center of a bunch of big, orange things.
