Fall Fun

I love that our kids like to dress up and play their imaginary characters! By the time Halloween arrived they all had worn their new costumes many times and played all sorts of different games.
That evening we took the kids to see our friends, the Larsons & the Jacksons, then, we spent the rest of the evening visiting with friends at the Zion school Trunk or Treat. There was a bouncy house, hot cocoa and lots of candy!  Mostly, it was wonderful seeing old classmates and dear friends!

Pumpkin Patch

A local farmer just a few miles from our house had a little pumpkin patch that we could go to so, one afternoon in October we invited our friends, Pam, Grayson and Ava to go with us! We enjoyed a little hay ride and picked out pumpkins.  The kids had fun running around in the patch and finding the best pumpkin ever!

Linder Farms

One of our favorite things to go in the fall is visit the pumpkin patch!  We love the hayrides out to the patch, picking that "perfect pumpkin", eating mini donuts and drinking hot apple cider, visiting the petting zoo and riding a few rides.  Usually the kids get to go to Linder Farms on school field trips but this year my mom and I took them in an evening after school.  The weather was perfect for being outside and we had a fun evening!

Saige's Birthday

October 5th was Saige's birthday and because she's a part of our family, we celebrated it with a special party!  On Friday evening Katie invited her girlfriends over (and their American Girl dolls) for a party that included BBQ hamburgers & hot dogs and a yummy two layered cake.  Saige's favorite thing are hot air balloons so I made her a balloon cake :)  It was a fun evening with lots of giggling girls!
