Bates Nut Farm

 We made our annual trip to Bates Nut Farm this month.  Unfortunately so did the rest of the county because it was PACKED!  Here are Dave and Teo waiting in line for the tractor ride while Troy and I chill in the shade.

 The maze.
 No, folks aren't just randomly standing in the field.  They are still in the maze.
 Almost their turn for the tractor ride!

 All aboard!

 While I waited for them to return from the ride, I spotted this...
 ...a Ghostbusters t-shirt!  Troy and Teo are really, really into Ghostbusters right now so this caught my eye.  I found it especially interesting because Bill Murray lives just a couple of miles away.  It would have been great for him to have strolled by about now.

I took no photos of the pumpkin patch this year, because it was hot and we were all getting a little cranky by the time we made it over there.  We picked pumpkins quickly and got outta Dodge.

Troy's Fifth Birthday - Chuck E. Cheese

 As a part of celebrating Troy's birthday, we took the boys to Chuck E Cheese in Vista.  Here is Teo waiting for the food to arrive.

 That plate is stiiilllll empty.
Pizza is here!  Lucy and Troy enjoying some pizza.  They also have other good food - I ordered a chicken sandwich with baked (not fried) fries which was pretty tasty.
 How about a little sugar with that pizza?
 Can I play now?
 How about now?
 Chuck makes a celebrity appearance.
 Get your hands up! Hands up! Get your hands up!

 Teo still not sure about robotic Chuck.

 Momma and her boys.

 Teo ate the entire cotton candy!  The whole thing!

 Road trip!
 Troy with is cotton candy.

Presto!  It disappeared also!  See the videos below for time spent with the games.

Troy's Fifth Birthday - The Presents

 Troy had a party at his house for his friends and relatives.  Pinata time!

 Dinner time with pasta and pizza!

 Time for presents!  Troy, take the chair of honor!
