A Disney Halloween

There never is a bad time to go to Disneyland-but throw in a holiday season and it really just makes it all that more magical. Pumkins and candycorn everywhere, yes, its finally feeling like fall around here! This was a great trip-much needed family play time after the start of the school year. We went with Papa Marc, grandma Di, uncle John and Aunt Heather and there two muchkins Little Johnny and zoey, and even uncle Chris came to play! We said this trip was for the kids...but really we know the truth!

Ethan adjusting his ears! He loved those ears and wore them for a week after we got home!

The trip was extra special meeting up with our good friends the Parkins! We adore thier kids! And what a treat for our kids..cousins and friends at Disney??? It just doesnt get any better!

This is one of our favorite rides-the roaring rapids in California adventures! Here the boys are going on it again!!

Such cute kids!!

The Last camp out

It almost seems wrong to be bloging about camping in October-but this was just a month ago on Labor day weekend. And not to mention, here fall hasn't even begun. It was still a warm 84 degrees today! (technically, this could have been last weekend!)

Logans favorite part of fishing is playing with the bait! Though, this year he lasted a little longer since santa brought the 'rocket fishing rod'. But we are still talking minutes, not hours.

The boys at shaver lake. This is day one. We were allready soo very dirty. Matt even sporting a beard, or is that a 5:00 shadow?

Whats a lake with out sand toys?? Ethan hard at work on the shore.

Matt and Noah attempting sailing. It was an adventure that didnt last long-both kept wodering where the motor was. There was a need for more speed. We had so much fun this weekend at boyscout camp. Tried new things (some we loved, some not so much), got REALLY dirty and ate mystery meat in the cafateria. Boys came home singing camp songs, more intouch with nature and each other. It was all good. We hope to repeat next year :)

The end of the mullet

Yes, its true. I finally cut the mullet off. I couldnt stand the pressure anymore-the comments on his hair and what a beutiful girl we had got to me. I had to cut the curls. Yes, I saved them. But as you can see Ethan was quite ready for his big day and did great. Give that boy a wheel and he's good to go.

Finnished !! He looks so much older now! One more milestone checked off!
