He is definately cuter than the real Manny.
Manny checking out the score on the game....
Yeah! For Number 99, Manny (Zenock) Ramirez!
Daddy and OuR little MaNNy!
Hopefully, this week will be a little slower than last week!
JC played on his departments volleyball team... (VERY intense.. They got 2nd place and lost in the final 3rd game.) While JC was playing, Zenock loved checking out the firetruck. The firemen loved having him around and showing him all the chains and knobs he could pull and push.
He instantly became such good friends with the fireman... They loved him and he loved putting on a show for them. They even gave him one of their doughnuts that were brought in just for them. It was so BIG and he ate the entire thing.
JC's volleyball team... (He's the one in the white shirt.)
We had such a fun day going to work with Dad!

We are teaching Zenock early all about computers and how to check out his friends blogs... He loves to get on and check in on his cousins and friends. :)
After, he would finish a spoon full, he would clap and point to the bowl for more.
This is the "Yeah, Mom, Success!" clap. They turned out great!
One night I went in to check on Zenock and found him cuddled up with his giraffe like this.... (I honestly didn't pose this.) Seriously, I just wanted to pick him up and just cuddle them both. This is his favorite toy. We don't go too far without "Tip Top."
We got to play in the hay maze, go on a hay ride, pet and feed the animals, paint a pumpkin, and have a picnic. Zenock loved every minute.
He loved just being next to them and watching them.
Hayden and Zenock going on a cattle drive... Don't they look like naturals?
We even found a RED tractor for Zenock to play on. My dad and brothers love RED tractors (Case tractors that is, for all you farm people.) Sorry, it's not the right brand guys. Zenock got so mad when I had to take him off when it was time to go home. It makes me wish we could live closer to my parents farm so he could enjoy this all the time! We can't wait to visit the farm again!

Daddy and Zenock walking through the Zoo.
We found this friendly cow in the petting Zoo... Her name was ROSE.. (told ya, Melissa:)
I think the best part of the Zoo trip was when JC took Zenock into the reptile house and came walking out like this. Zenock had the biggest grin on his face and was laughing hysterically... He had tried to run away in the building and JC finally picked him up and carried him out. (I stayed out with the stroller and because I dislike any kind of reptiles...)
After pushing the stroller up hill for about 45 minutes and not getting anywhere or seeing too much. I made JC go get the car.... we were taking the "driving tour!" (Definately the way to see Gettysburg. It is HUGE and covers many miles!)
The soldier cemetary...
Amazing view.... Pickett's charge took place from the hill where we took this picture.
It was so pretty
I especially love all of the stone walls that surround Gettysburg. It really was an awesome place to visit! We had planned on attending the National Apple Harvest Festival as well in Gettysburg, but time ran out. It would take you days to read and actually listen and learn about everything in Gettysburg.
Not to mention our little boy was getting pretty mad by the time we left. He had had enough time in the car. I finally gave in and gave him a sucker which he then decided to get EVERYWHERE... His face was so sticky, at one point his eyes were sticking shut. But, it kept him entertained.

Saturday before conference, (it doesn't start until noon here) we headed out to Oktober Fest. It is put on by JC's work and unlike the REAL Oktober Fest in Germany, it was a family oriented festival. I love that they have a festival to celebrate my favorite month in the year.
They had lots of rides at Oktober Fest, so JC and I took turns taking Zenock. Of course he loved them and cried everytime we took him off a ride. I think the carousel was his favorite. He would never look at JC for a picture as we would go past.
I think JC and I both learned we are getting older... we were both so sick after going on all these rides that just went in circles! The German Band.... Zenock loved the loud polka music and kept trying to dance in his stroller, so...
We let him out to dance with all the other kids! He loved it! It is so funny to watch him and the crazy things he does. We sure love being his parents! Oktober Fest was a lot of fun and we can't wait to go back next year!
