Goopy as! Pumpkin carving was quite fun. Grandpa Coadwell even got in on the action. He did pretty good for a Kiwi Brit who has never celebrated Halloween before. And not only is he and Grandma getting to experience an American Halloween, they are getting to experience a Transylvania County Halloween. Too bad it raining.

Apple picking is my new favorite activity. All you have to do is sit in the basket and people keep handing you apples, it's great. I only had one issue, as you can see in the last photo, Gus was trying to be all extra nice to me so I'd give him one of the apples. Get your own Gus, there are plenty of apples in the orchard, as they say.

Their first Sunday here, Daddy took off work and we headed on a nice road trip to the arboretum, following a swing ride with Grandpa in the sun at home. This was my second trip and it was just as lovely as I remembered, although this go around it was chilly. I especially enjoyed a comfy, long nap on Mommys back as we hiked around.

SOS! Mimi is torturing me, dressing me up like a bird of some sort. How weird is that? What am I, some sort of doll that can be dressed up at one's leasure? They keep talking about this thing called "Halloween." Well, so far, it doesn't seem like a fun thing to me!

Grandma and Grandpa Coadwell arrived at the Charlotte Airport at 10:28pm Wednesday evening and made it to Brevard by 1:00 am Thursday. I was fast asleep when they slipped into the house after a very long trip across the Pacific Ocean and the USA. I was super excited when I awoke and found they had finally made it to me. I have enjoyed lots of cuddles since their arrival, all in person. I must admit I was getting bored of hugging their photograph, live is much better! We are looking forward to lots of autumn fun together. I'll keep you posted on my blog, so tune in friends and family.

Grandma and Grandpa Coadwell, I recommend that you pack some fleecey pj's. It's been quite chilly in the evenings. Mommy went out and bought me this warm fleecey polar bear onesie that keeps me toasty at night. Can't wait to see you. Just 3 more sleeps. Travel safely.

As of Wednesday I am officially 10 months old, which means I can do big boy stuff like slide down slides. Here I am at the park with my friends Miles and Grayson. I really enjoy the slide. In 12 more days Grandma and Grandpa Coadwell will be here and they can take me to the park and I can show off all my new Franklin park tricks, like sliding and swinging and eating mulch off the ground.

Last Sunday my Great Grandma Layton, or GiGi, came to visit me in Brevard from Charlotte. We had brunch sitting outside in the sunshine. She will turn 92 years-old next month. Mom says that's pretty old, but she seemed like a spring chicken to me, sharp as a tack.
