THE HELGESONS | HALLOWEEN | ALLOUEZ, WISCONSIN

THE HELGESONS | HALLOWEEN | ALLOUEZ, WISCONSIN

Halloween with the Helgeson’s. This year we dressed up as Cole’s favorite characters from The Miraculous Ladybug.

THE HELGESONS | NATIONAL RAILROAD MUSEUM BIRTHDAY | ALLOUEZ, WI

This little man could not wait to get his hands on some cherries off our trees. Since it is his Birthday and he only asked for the Thomas Cake, which you can check out here. We figured that a few not so ripe cherries would be okay. So we entertained him and he entertained Mama for a few images of him being cute picking cherries with Daddy.

Cole had such a special 3rd Birthday blowing out his candles on his cake, picking cherries, and then going to A Day Out With Thomas at our National Train Museum. We celebrate simply and we like to keep it just Mama and Daddy. I mean we are the three that were there the day he was created and born so it seems only right.

A Day Out With Thomas was above everything Cole could have ever dreamed up. Although, a little overwhelmed and tired from all the festivities he was ecstatic to get to see Thomas up close. Thomas even talks and has moving facial expressions, which kinda freaked me out at first but we warmed up to quickly because who can resist cute little Thomas...or in this case huge Thomas!

Comment below. Have you had Door County Cherries before? If not, what is your favorite fruit to pick your own? Have you been to A Day Out With Thomas? Who is your favorite Thomas character? Personally, I love Cranky because he's my twin and Cole loves Percy a ton!

Also known as the Cole's 3rd Birthday Part II. 

THE HELGESONS | POINT BEACH FAMILY FUN | TWO RIVERS, WI

Even the Winter won't keep us away from the beach. Can you believe this beach? Gemstones line the beach. You can find sand dunes, boardwalks, and even a gorgeous lighthouse. We spend so much time at Point Beach we've thought about purchasing an RV and just being their permanent campground host, not really, but really! lol. Wouldn't that be incredible. They even have a dog beach and host breakfasts during the year. I think the more I write, the more I'm convincing myself this is an awesome idea. Back to our adventure.

We find ourselves combing the beaches for fossils, coral, quartz, unakite, jasper, and so many more that we love finding and letting Cole find each stone in our rock books. We love using nature to teach our little explorer. If you didn't already know we use nature and our life experiences as our classroom and educational resources. We are homeschooling our little learner and he is such a curious boy and a giant sponge. He can never get enough learning and exploring. We love showing him the ropes and watching him grow and develop each day.

THE HELGESONS | FAMILY SESSION AT KLONDIKE PARK | AUGUSTA, MO

THE HELGESONS | FAMILY SESSION AT KLONDIKE PARK | AUGUSTA, MO

Our little family is still new and looking like a human is far from normal right now. Today we focus on how much we love this little man and we put some actual clothes on to appear like we have it together. It's still quite bizarre to believe we created such a cute and sweet boy.
