Barnyard Boo

Crystal and I hit up Barnyard Boo at Thanksgiving Point a couple weeks ago (I know, I am very behind on my blogging).  It was a perfect fall day. Not too cold and clear skies. Jayne enjoyed checking out the animals and riding on the hayride (twice). 

Savannah was an angel the entire time we were there and loved it. 

So little compared to those big horses!

 It was so great hanging out with my sister and seeing my adorable niece Savannah. 
She is so freaking cute. 

Vinny was a sport for being the only boy in a group of girls. 

Love that cheezy grin

Love her like crazy.

fall fun with friends

Last Saturday we hit up Pumpkinland with our friends Kim, Clay, & Ellie while Steve coached a soccer game nearby. Jayne loved playing with Ellie- those two crack me up when they get together. Jayne enters bossy mode, Ellie usually gets scared of her at some point, but for the most part they chase each other and laugh and hug at the end of the day.

Jayne said she wanted to find a "pink" pumpkin after I took this picture. She is all about the color pink these days... was bound to happen sooner or later.

They especially loved petting the bunny

Jayne loved all the stuff she could climb through, under, and in.

When she saw the bouncy house she asked to get in, but as soon as she got in she started screaming. So we took her out but then when she saw Ellie go in she asked to go in again and then had THE TIME OF HER LIFE. Its funny how having a buddy around can eliminate all fear. 

Jump! jump!

Check out that smile!

These two loved the slide

And I love her!

Vinn was pretty good for us and liked chillin with Clay since Dad wasn't around.

Afterwards I picked up Steve from his game and then we all met up at Kneaders for lunch. I love Ellie's face in the above photo. For such a tiny girl, she can shove a lot of food in that mouth!  These pictures crack me up...

The following Monday we hit up Cornbelly's at Thanksgiving Point with Kim& Clay, Rachel & Kevin, and Keri & Keith (and all the little ones) for FHE. The kids loved it. It was pretty chilly but we made the most of our time there. Jayne especially loved the cow train ride, the princess bouncy house, and watching the pig race. She also went down a bunch of slides, ran through a miniature corn maze, played on a wooden ship, and sat in the front seat of a fire truck. Steve and I got hot chocolate and laughed at our 2 year old enjoying every minute of it. Aside from Vinny being a little cranky and tired, I would say the evening was a success.

When the train pulled up for our ride, Jayne bolted for the entrance, cut everyone in line, and climbed right into her spot all by herself. It was hilarious. This girl was NOT going to get left behind.

Witches Night Out

I got to enjoy a child-free evening with these cute gals! We decorated our own hats (not Monette) and dressed in our witches best. We met up with Steve's girl cousins as well and hit up Gardner's Village with thousands of other witches. It was a riot. I could not believe the herds of people that were there. I'd say 98% percent of the people there were decked out and there were some amazing costumes. It was so fun dancing to music, getting some yummy food, checking out the shops, and just enjoying the evening with fellow witches. It was a great night and I hope we keep it a tradition!

Lovin' my long brown WIG that looks a lot like the girl's REAL hair below:

Monette totally rocks auburn hair

I couldn't get over Laur's blonde bob- I loved it!
