Falyn’s Halloween Portraits

Yesterday I took some shots of Falyn in her Halloween costume. She is so excited about being Tinkerbell and can not wait to go Trick-or-Treating. She let me take a bunch of shots then said, “Mommy that is enough pictures.”

Wings, Wheels, and Rotors

We took the boys and Falyn to the Wing, Wheels, and Rotors expo today. They kids all had a great time watching planes and helicopters take off and land. The boys enjoyed going in some of the planes and helicopters. Falyn went in one helicopter then decided she didn’t really want to go in any more. She did go in the C-17 plane but wouldn’t go in any other ones. Here’s some of the photos from today.

Pumpkin Patch Visit

We took Falyn and the twins to the pumpkin patch today. (They were the only ones that wanted to go.) The pumpkin patch we used to go to has been replaced with a CVS store, so we had to seek out a different one. I didn’t like this one as much as the one we used to go to, but the kids had fun.

Kayli at Outdoor Science Camp

Kayli had a lot of fun at Science camp this week. They went on a lot of hikes. She saw a bunch deer and many bear tracks. One of the other groups even saw a bear. She said it was cold there but very pretty. Here’s some more of her pictures.

Kayli’s Off to 6th Grade Science Camp

Kayli left today for Outdoor Science Camp. They will be gone all week, returning on Friday. She should have lots of fun, but was sad to be going away from home for that long. I can’t wait to hear all about it when she gets back.

Parish Festival

The Parish Festival is this weekend. The kids have been getting so excited all week watching the booths get set up and the rides arrive. They could not wait for school to get out today so they could go on the rides. This is the first year I have gone to the festival with no stroller. Falyn did just great without it. I picked up the kids at the 12:30 dismissal and we had lunch. Grandma Nancy and Dan met us at the food tables. We then rode rides till around 3:00 pm. They have one ticket rides for all the school kids from 1-3. After that it goes up to 4 tickets per ride, so I wanted to take full advantage while it was just one ticket per ride. The kids had tons of fun on the rides with the twirly slide being the boys favorite and the horses and ferris wheel being Falyn’s favorite.

Talia was sad that she didn’t go with us. Her school didn’t get out until 3:00. She went home with her friend for a sleepover and was able to go to the festival that afternoon and evening with her friends and again the next day with a unlimited ride bracelet that was good from noon till 6 pm.

We spent a lot of time helping out with booths this weekend. Friday night Dan and Aidan worked at the dime toss booth. Saturday afternoon Kayli and I worked the cookie booth, then Saturday night Talia and Dan worked the hamburger booth. Dan and the twins worked the dime toss booth on Sunday afternoon. And Dan went back Sunday night to help with take down after the festival closed.

Miramar Air Show

Last Sunday Dan took the boys to the Miramar Air Show. They loved it! They couldn’t stop talking about all the cool stuff they saw. Their favorite thing was sitting in one of the helicopters. They had seats in the grand stands and enjoyed watching all the planes.
