We arrived just in time to see the helicopter land in Riverview Park.
And the Pilots seat! He got to push all the buttons and move the controller.
Just giddy with excitement!
To top it all off, the local paper took a picture of Ben in the Pilot's seat. It was published the next day. You can see it here:http://www.statesmanjournal.com/article/20111111/UPDATE/111111025/Vets-honored-mid-Valley-events?odyssey=nav%7Chead
click the little 'more' button under the picture of the guy on the horse on the left hand side if you can't see Ben's cool picture.
The next morning, when I got Ben up, he said, "Ok. I'm ready to go fly my helicopter now."
It's so much fun to see my little boy that happy.

and playing in the wheat bin.
She sampled a few handfuls.
It was difficult to concentrate with straw down his pants.
He persevered and found the PERFECT pumpkin.
Once Ben found his pumpkin he tried eating it. He said it did not taste good at all. I told him pumpkins need to be cooked to be tasty. He cried, "No! Don't cook my pumpkin!"
After that, the pumpkin remained heavily guarded. He took it to daycare the whole next week and slept with it for the next two nights. When he left the room without the pumpkin he'd give me a warning look and say, "Don't cook dat pumpkin Mommy!"

He loves to feed all the animals in the morning to help mom out.
Like every good farmer, he takes care of his animals before breakfast while still in his jammies.
Addilyn helps out a bit too.
Ben starts by giving the dogs water
and then some food.
Frank and Lilly get some apples.

Grandma Mary's friend Katie brought us a yummy lunch.
The hoses were extra cool.
Ben and Daddy added to their Christmas wish lists.
Ben loved lurching through the park.
