i box chocolate cake mix (the darker the better)
2 cups pureed pumpkin ( not pumpkin pie filling)
a half a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
mix and drop by the spoonfuls and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. let cool before eating. you cant taste the pumpkin i promise. it just replaces the oil and eggs. they cookies have more of a cake texture than a cookie texture. soo yummy. and easy for riley to help mix and dump together.

line to get in, we got to see the life flight helicopter circle us and then land. when we got to the registration tent riley was given a contruction hat which he loved! (because it was like daddys at work) we got to see and climb on ambulances, a helicopter, swat cars, tractors, construction trucks, firetrucks, a recycling truck, tri met bus, franz break truck that gave us a small loaf of bread, big semi trucks, odot with graders and plow, pge with bucket trucks, coca cola truck with big screen for playing guitar hero, 2 excursion limos, 2 monster trucks, and an old 1918 fire truck. all were open for climbing and horn honking (except for the old fire truck) . and there was lots of horn honking going on. lots of vendors for eating, a big pile of sand to play in. I think half of it came home with us! this is deffinatley something we will be doing again!

It amazes me everytime we do things like this how expensive they are now! whatever happened to the 5.00 poloroid we got when we were little? While we were at the mall I decided to walk in an effort to wear out my little man. everytime we would walk by a store that was playing loud music he had to stop right outside and dance.
