35 mm Maximiliano's Birthday + Birthday Party

I've talked about my fascination with film here before. I Really love how it captures real moments.

These two sets are from Maximiliano's birthday at the zoo and Maximiliano's birthday party at the park (I shared some digital photos and talked all about his birthday here before). I just picked a few from each set to share here. Both days were kind of gloomy so these pictures aren't as bright as I'd like them to be but they captured some great moments... and tantrums! hehe. Now I need to buy a photo album to put all these in.

P.S. These are some random photos my sister and I took, to use up the extra film in the cameras. I really like the lighting in these and the green in the background.

Pinterest Inspo (Halloween)

{ for costumes; how cute and clever is this? }

for meal ideas; these mashed bootatoes and ghost pizzas are so easy and cute }

for kids; how cool would it be to craft this skeleton with your little one
and then share some mandarin jack o lanterns? }

{ for the home; this wreath is so fabulous in a spooky way, I looove it!  and this
 flower arrangement is everything, you can always count on Martha for inspiration}

I can't believe Halloween is in two weeks! We haven't even gotten our decorations up yet but this year I want to keep it very minimal. Every year we put them up the first day of October but we are far behind this time around. Today we picked up some spider webs and I'm hoping we can pick up some other decorations (and candy) on Friday that way we can be set to put up the stuff by Sunday.

So far I can take off two things off my fall list. The other day I baked the most delicious triple pumpkin cinnamon rolls! I put pumpkin in the dough, the filling and the frosting and they were seriously the best cinnamon rolls I have EVER had. I would share the recipe if I would have gotten some decent pictures but it was late and the lighting was very bad. Also today we went to the pumpkin patch, Maximiliano is in love with pumpkins and he was so happy and excited to see so many of them. We got him a small pumpkin and he has been playing with it nonstop, rolling his little hot wheels on top of it and what not. We will definitely be going back and I will share pictures once I have a little more time.

Surprise Cupcakes

Made these babies the other night. Working on the recipe and then I will share it here.
I'll just say this, It involves Ferrero Rocher + Nutella.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

It's starting to feel like fall here. There is a constant cool breeze and some leaves are changing color. I've never been so excited for fall before but this summer was so intensely hot that I am welcoming fall with open arms. It feels good to not be drenched in sweat every. minute. of. the. day.

These are some of the things that I am excited for; a trip to the pumpkin patch, baking a loaf of pumpkin bread, buying a fall scented candle (any recommendations?), decorating for halloween, baking halloween cupcakes and Maximiliano's 3rd halloween!

What are you guys excited for? I'm also looking for activities to do with Maximiliano, he is such an active toddler and he won't sit down for more than 10 minutes. I'm trying to have him watch less t.v. I mostly let him watch dinosaur train and wild kratts, those are his favorite shows and some disney movies. I will be happy to get any suggestions of toddler activities!
