Miles the Veterinarian-Halloween Take 1

Miles loves animals. He even knows how some of them sound. Since he loves them so much, and we had a Halloween event at church to go to, I decided to let him be a veterinarian for NUMC's Octoberfest.

Miles got to go fishing for treats.

This picture says it all...You might see that Miles is a little fuzzy. Well, this is how things are most of the time we try and take his picture. He wants to go go go and doesn't really want to be held unless he feels like being held. In this picture, he wanted to run around the church parking lot!

This is Halloween take 1. He gets to wear his vet costume to Parent's Day Out on Halloween, and then he gets to be something else on Halloween night. Stay tuned for more on Halloween take 2!

October Fun

This month has been busy....full of wedding festivities, Halloween preparations, and family time. Sorry for the lack of posts...It is very difficult with work, training for a marathon, and chasing around a busy toddler boy. With all that said, it is time for a much needed here we go!

The last weekend of September Miles and I went to a BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) painting party at Ms. Lynda Climer's house. She does this every year, and this year was just as fun as last year. Miles even got to paint his own pumpkin!

Miles worked so hard he fell asleep on Mimi.

During the first weekend of October, the Cleek's headed to Ft. Walton Beach, FL for Chris and Ashton Hatch's wedding. Chris is Matt's cousin, so, Matt was in the wedding. I took a personal day the Friday before so we headed up on Thursday evening. Miles did pretty good on the 7-8 hour drive down thanks to Yo Gabba Gabba, Sid the Science Kid, and The Lorax.

We stayed at Waterscape on Okaloosa Island. If you have children, and you visit the Ft. Walton area often, this is the place for you! They catered to kids. They had an awesome pool with a lazy river as well as a splash pool for smaller children.

Miles loved the splash pool.

On Saturday, Chris and Ashton got married at the First Baptist Church. This is Miles and I before the ceremony.

At the gorgeous reception, which was held at a convention center. 

While most of our friends and family ventured home to Tennessee on that Sunday after the wedding, we headed over to Seaside to Elaine and Darrell's friends' Steve and Patricia Camp's beach house. I was on fall break the following week, so, we too a little time for some R and R.

I felt as if we were in the Hamptons! Seaside is such a nice beach community. Very pricey, but super nice!

Miles spent the first Seaside beach day collecting water from the ocean in his pails.

He was trying to count his buckets in this picture. 

He also slept for 3 hours one beach day underneath the umbrella. What a life!!

Miles and Daddy enjoying the beach.

Miles loved playing in the sand, which is a big move from his first trip to the beach back in March/April. He wanted to roll around in the sand. Thank goodness for the water to wash off the mess.

The sand isn't the only thing Miles enjoyed on this beach trip. He loved getting in the ocean. It was very calm almost every day we were there. He got to sit in the water and play with the wet sand.

Another thing Miles loved on our trip to Seaside was this bike trailer. In fact, he cried just about every time we got him out of it. Needless to say, I think Matt and I need to get us some bikes and a trailer!

We are very appreciative to Steve and Patricia for letting us stay with them in their beautiful beach house.
