Ty's Baptism

Sunday after church we headed to Indy for Ty's special day. He was getting baptized. It was neat to be there for that special occasion.

Pumpkin carving

After our fun time playing in the leaves, we carved a pumpkin. The others are being painted. The girls are very serious about this job. We attempted to roast the seeds, but that didn't work out so well. As in, I burned them. I was trying to do too many other things at the same time. Oh well, there's always next year.

Family Pictures

I love, love, love these pictures! I can't stop looking at them. Thank you Rigel!


Today we decided to head to Frankfurt, Kentucky. It's the capital, did you know that? It's only about an hour away. We packed a lunch and ate it at the park. We then went to the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Center. Nathan had been there for work and thought we might enjoy it. They had lots of different animals and interactive things for the kids to do inside. They had fish, deer, buffalo, elk, a black bear, bob cats, and more. It may as well have been a zoo. Brooke didn't enjoy the walking, as usual. But she enjoyed it better inside. Oh, and it was FREE!!


Brooke had the idea to "BOO!" some friends. You know, you make cookies, drop them off on their doorstep, and RUN! Try to get out of there before they see you. We did it twice this week to 4 different families. The kids think it is so much fun!

Heat Wave

The last few days we've had a heat wave. It's been in the 80's and today it almost got to 90. Not that I'm complaining. I'll take it over cold and snowy weather. It's been perfect for bike rides, walks, and for just being outside. We spent a lot of time outside today. We met some friends from church at a farm to skeet shoot. Now, it's really not my kind of thing, but Nathan wanted to go so I just went to socialize. It was an excuse for a date, we just had to pay a babysitter. Somehow I was talked into shooting a few times. I wasn't really good at it. I thought all those years of playing Duck Hunt on Nintendo would somehow give me an edge. But I didn't. I didn't shoot a darn thing. Nathan was a little bit better, but it'd been a few years since he had shot anything.

Then this afternoon Brooke's school had their Fall Carnival. It felt more like summer though, but that's ok. There were sack races, inflatables, bean bag tosses, pumpkin painting, and lots more. Fun was had by all.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
