Anna's first camping trip

Anna just recently went camping with Grandma and Granddad for 3 days. She had a blast! She really enjoyed staying in the airstream aka Nicolette. They played lots of games and watched some movies. They hiked 1 mile and got to see some caves. The camp fire was also fun. They made smores and made up songs. Thanks Grandma and Granddad for a great time!

Firehouse visit

Today our MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) visited a local firehouse. The firemen were very nice to take time out for all our kids. The kids got cool firemen hats and got to sit inside the fire engine. Anna thought it was great but Luke wouldn't have anything to do with a strange man putting him in a strange truck. Go figure?

So.... Luke found what he thought was a cool manhole to play on (see above). He is starting to stand in place and make a jump like move but his feet don't leave the ground. He finds this very entertaining. The kids had fun and the moms learned some tips on fire was cool!

Oh no....SHOTS!

Today was a day I've been dreading for a while...doctors visit. I knew Anna would need shots because she starts school next year and I knew she would be asking me about it as soon as we hit the door. Luke also needed shots because he is still at the age where he gets shots almost every time we go. He also needed a flu shot. I told Anna ahead of time if she was brave at the doctors office we would go to the mall and ride the carousel and have an icee. Then I told her if she were super duper brave we would stop by our favorite bookstore (Ms. B's used bookstore) and she could pick out a book.

Well, needless to say Anna was super duper brave and she hardly even shed a tear. Luke of course screamed as soon as they started to hold him down but let's face it, it's tough when you don't understand what is going on. Mommy needed a kleenex too! So here are some pictures of them enjoying their new books and taking a ride on the carousel. They had so much fun I think they forgot all about their ouchy!

Happy Halloween!

Welcome to our blog! This is all new for me so bare with me. Many thanks to Karen for all your help with setting this up!
We had a great time trick or treating. Anna was an adorable Tink and Luke was too cute in the giraffe costume. We had to go with a one piece outfit for him otherwise he wouldn't have kept it on :)
We went out around the neigborhood with friends and were so thankful for the great weather! The girls had a blast running from house to house. We stopped for a short break at a neighbors. The were showing a movie on the side of thier house and serving popcorn, hotdogs and cider. It was great!
