October Break Overview

We didn't do anything exciting or go anywhere fabulous but we did have a lot of fun over October break, all two and a half weeks of it.

For a day or two the weather actually cooled down engough to sell lemonade. They drank most of it and the only customers were us parents. They loved it which is what matters!

Ice cream at our favorite spot, Yogurt Jungle, with some cute friends.

Tatum got a pedicure with Miss Hansen, her Kindersteps teacher whom she still loves and adores. She LOVES getting her toes done but even more than that she LOVED seeing Miss Hansen!

We went to the Scottsdale Train Park with several friends. The kids loved the train, merry go round, playing at the park and in the dirt, and spending time with friends.

We went to a cabin conference weekend. The weather was chilly and the kids ran wild outside. It was nice and relaxing. A cabin + conference = messy hair...for Tatum that is.

We went on our ward campout. It was a quick 15 hour get away, tonz of work and freezing temperatures!

We had a sleep over with little peanut, Leah, their cousin. Tatum was such a helper, a great big sister. Neither would leave her side. They both sat for quite a while just watching her in the swing. It tugged at my heart.

We spent a day at the Children's Museum, one of our favorite places, thanks Molly!! They never tire of all the fun things this place has to offer!

Nonnie and Pops took them to see Where the Wild Things Are and then finished with lunch at McDonald's, a favorite of theirs. It was a fun date, they didn't want me to go to the movies but were okay with me meeting them for lunch. Nice.

They got to spend an entire day with Nonnie. She took them to the park for a picnic and of course, they had a marvelous time with her!

Wow, you guys did a lot of fun stuff. I love seeing lemonade stands. If I lived out by you, I would have stopped and bought a few cups. You'll have to let me know the next time they have one ! Do you like that Train Park at McCormick Ranch ( that's where it is, right ? ) I have been meaning to take Douglas there because he LOVES Trains, but I didn't know if it was worth the drive.

I feel the same way when Douglas is around little babies. But he just says " I don't like THAT baby, I like MY baby ! "

The ward campout WAS tons of work and freezing and FUN! Except for our close encounter with the highway patrol. By the way, Luke called 911 today behind my back at volleyball on the church phone and the cops and fire dept showed up. Yep. Nice.
