Broccoli, Pumpkins, and Don't Forget To Vote

Halen wanted a pirate pumpkin, I wanted a political one, so here's our compromise, Obama with an eye patch.

Liam says, ' i really love broccoli.'

Super Heroes

Not only are they cute, but they just might rescue you the next time you're in trouble. Our friends threw a kid friendly vegan halloween party. All the little tykes running around in their costumes was too cute. We're anxiously awaiting the real Halloween. The vegan mini mall is hosting a fun-filled trick or treating Halloween festival!!! I love Portland.

Pumpkin Farming

We went to Liepold pumpkin farm again this year. It was a ton of fun for a place located in Boring, Oregon. Hay rides, corn mazes, kid play areas, pumpkin slingshots, and more. We met another kid and his mom from the vegan family meetup group. Halen had lots of fun with him. Liam likes to eat hay and roll pumpkins.

Summer Recap

Lots of stuff got left out this summer, due to all the tons and tons of fun we were having! No time for blogging of course. So, now that it's a pre-rainy season rainy day, I'll give you a small recap. Liam learned to use a spoon and is very excited about it. He's been a stubborn eater since the start, only wanting to feed himself and only eating Indian food. Seriously, if it aint got Garham Masala in it, he don't want it. He spit out any ground up baby textured food I ever tried to feed him. It had to be chunky and he preferred to do it himself, no matter how messy that got. Moving from fingers and hands in Indian food to a spoon was a big happy day for us all. We picked peaches one day, apples and pears another. We hiked around Trillium Lake. We went to the amusement park a few more times, ate lots of burritos and danishes and vegan potlucks and brunches. goodbye summer, hello fall.

Vegan Etsy

The holidays are coming. This year, I'm going to try my hardest to buy everything handmade, direct from artists. VeganEtsy is a great place to do that. It's an etsy team of all vegan artists, selling all vegan stuff. Pretty cool huh? Here's a small sample of what's available.

then, of course, there's my shop...

Happy Shopping.
