Fun in the Mountain Sun

Wednesday we started out on our family mountain adventure in true country style by eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel! Samuel loved his blueberry pancake, even if Magdalena wouldn't touch her egg and biscuit...
Babyland General (home of the original Cabbage Patch Kids) was our main event. Magdalena was overcome with glee and frantically said, "Baby! Baby! BABY!" the whole time we were there. A "baby" was born during our visit and so we named her Magdalena Rose having hopes of perhaps "adopting" her for our own Magda...BUT, those original dolls cost $200!! So, we opted for a boxed, store created CPK for Magdalena for $17 instead. She was just as thrilled with that one as the one we saw birthed from "Mother Cabbage." ;)
Aw! Aren't the cabbage cousins adorable!? Both of them enjoyed running around the outdoor garden before we left the "Hospital."
To finish our fun-filled day with a flourish, we went panning for gemstones. Dahlonega is famous for gold, but gems are there a plenty as well (and much more kid-friendly!). Poppy bought a big 5 gallon tub of sand and gems for us to sift. Magdalena and Samuel had a blast tossing the newly found "rocks" into the water flow - they also really liked splashing themselves too!

Even though Superman and Ducks can fly solo, they decided to give motorcylcing a whirl. I think that Ducky Magdalena prefers using her own lil feet and "wings." Superman Samuel really got into it though!
P.S. Magdalena calls her cousin Samuel "Ammy" (like Sammy without the "S"). It's too cute!

Prestoze Superman i kacenka muzou litat samostatne, tady se rozhodli povozit se na motorce (Jonathan nabidl sluzby sve motorky pro hrdinu Supermana a taky kacenku)
P.S. Magdalenka vola na sveho bratrance "Emy" (bez S, A se rekne cesky E tak proto emy)
Je to opravdu roztomile!

Duck siting ("Nase kacenka")

Last Sunday afternoon, our church had a Fall Festival. Some of the kids dressed up since they had Halloween costumes - Magdalena was a duck. She did NOT go trick or treating. But, she did have fun running around at the festival. She quickly found people to entertain and other kids to hug and chase.

Minuly tyden v nedeli nas sbor poradal podzimni festival. Nektere deti mely kostymy jako na svatek Halloween - Magdalenka mela kostym kacenky. Neznam historii Halloweenu, protoze je to americky svatek - vetsinou se deti nastroji do ruznych kostymu a chodi po domech kde dostavaji sladkosti. Magdalenka mela hodne legrace na festivalu, pobihala o sto sest.

Ty, the little boy sitting in his momma's lap next to me and Magdalena, befriended Magdalena during her first nursery stay. He patted her back and gave her many hugs! They were happy to be reunited at the Festival - especially since they got to ride a train!
