Fun with Grandpa

The girls are blessed with 3 grandpas and this past Sat. we spent the day with one of the grandpas at the balloon rally. We had a great time with grandpa!

The night launch was beautiful!


I used to go to the balloon rally growing up so it was so cool to experience this with Ellie and Emily!

Halloween Lunches

I have had fun making the girls Halloween themed food this week. 



Lunch was a sand "witch”, white chocolate strawberry ghost, pretzel stick witches brooms and mummy juice. All of these ideas came from Pinterest.

Homeschool Fieldtrip

A local corn maize was having homeschool day recently so we joined some friends for a day of fun. They broke us up into two groups: 4 and under and K-5th grade. I went with Emily’s group so I didn’t get a lot of pics of Ellie until we met up at the playground. Emily got to plant corn


Go on a hayride, visit the chickens, collect wooden eggs (she had no idea they weren’t real),


practice milking a cow


feed the goats, collect fake veggies and once she turned in and sorted all of her eggs, fruits and veggies they paid her $2 and she was able to go pick out a pumkin for $2. It was such a cute process!!DSC02941 DSC02946

Ellie’s group went to a small lecture all about corn and the farm, went through the big corn maize, went on a hay ride and finished up with the animals. After we were done we played on their really cool playground. The tree house was the biggest hit.

I wanted to get a picture of the girls together….just one….but it seems impossible to get both of the girls to look at the camera and smile at the same time and this is what I kept getting:DSC02986 DSC02987 DSC02988 DSC02989 DSC02992 DSC02993

I think I will appreciate these goof ball pictures more in the years to come!! Man, I love these cuties!!!!!
