Last week the kids and I made a road trip to visit some family and friends down south. We had a great time - we got to see Great Grandpa and Grandma Parkinson, Uncle Roger, Aunt Janet, Cousin Olivia, Cousin Haley, their cute puppies, The Backlund Family, and my momma (Tutu to the kids)! The kids had a blast at Lego Land and the beach, but most of all they just had fun with their friends and family. We love all of you and miss you lots!

There are some things that we buy for our kids that are a huge waste, but this one was really priceless! I took Keilani to Disney's Princesses on Ice a couple of weeks ago with 2 of her best buddies. She didn't take her eyes of the stage the entire time! She was totally enthralled. I'm sure it's something she wont forget! Before the show, we went to Applebees (Kids eat free!) to make it a complete "girls night out!"
Jacob finished year 2 of soccer. He had a great time this year and he really performed well. Next year he moves up to the big leagues- Under 8s with real game rules on Saturdays. It will be crazy next year- Keilani will start playing on Friday nights too. 2 different practice days and 2 different game days!
We've been busy celebrating fall the last few weeks! We went to Bishop's Pumpkin Farm in Wheatland with some friends- it was incredible!! That will definitely be our new tradition. It had so much fun stuff for the kids - and the pumpkins were only a few dollars a piece ($2-$4).
We also helped out and played at the Greenhouse's annual Harvest Carnival. Jeff donated the hot dogs and our life group manned the craft table.
Unfortunately my camera battery died after 1 picture on Halloween night. So, I have one picture of Meigan trick or treating- it is a cute one- but I'm a little sad that I didn't get pics of the other 2. Oh well, next year!
