Field Trip to Black Island Farms

 So this week we went on Brantley's first field trip with his preschool and of coarse it was to Black Island Farms.  We just LOVE this place!  It is sooo much fun!  The kids got to go on a tracker ride to the pumpkin patch and pick out their own pumpkin, see some farm animals and play on some pretty cool toys and rides.  So much fun that we are going back this week with our neighbors and friends.  It's hours of fun!
Lilley raising her hand telling the guy she had found her pumpkin

She was so excited to have her very own pumpkin that was her size!

Brantley and his pick

They weren't too happy with me for making them take their picture here before they went to play...I'm such a mean mom.  :-)

Brantley and his friend from school having a race

This slide was a little steeper then he thought.  But of coarse he loved it!

Lilley had to get in the fun.  She climbed up the hay bales all by herself.

The train ride!

I just love this girls smile!  Melts my heart!

And of coarse so does Brantley's

They were so proud of themselves for climbing up to the top.  It was pretty high up.

So my wonderful sister in law told me the the Energy Solutions Arena was having Lightning McQueen and Mater there for two days and that it was free!!  So we decided to head down with Steph and Benjamin and check it out.  Brantley was a little disappointed with the fact that Lightning McQueen didn't talk or move but he thought that it was still cool.  They had a bounce house to play in and a couple of games to play to win prizes.  It was a fun time.  Thanks Shana for letting us know about it and thanks Steph for driving us down in your cool new van! 

They only let Lilley go through the bounce house once since they did have a height minimum.  She was sooo sad but I'm glad they let her go once.

She's got hair!!

I am so happy that Lilley is FINALLY starting to get hair!!  I can actually do things with it now and it is so fun.  She loves it too.  She told me "it's soooo pretty! I love it mom!!"  when I finished doing it.  Such a cute funny girl!

Rainy Day Picnic

So last week we got a lot of rain and it was cold out.  We had our friends Benjamin and Noah over for the day and the kids wanted to do something fun.  Since we couldn't go outside I decided for lunch that it would be fun to do a picnic inside!  The kids loved it!  Eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches, chips and peaches on a blanket in the living room while watching a Halloween show...doesn't get any better then that!

A Little Blue

Poor little Lilley has had a few rough days (along with mom and dad).  She hasn't been sleeping very well and we found out that she was getting all 4 of her 2nd year molars.  She then started throwing up and waking up every hour all night long needing to go potty.  We took her in and we thought for sure she had a UTI but she didn't.  The doc seems to think that it was just some virus.  I felt so bad.  She was miserable!  With getting all four teeth and some weird strange virus she had a hard weekend.  Every morning she came in with me around 6:30 and we would snuggle and get a few extra zzzz's.  She is on amends now just need to fix the routine of waking up several times a night.  She looks so sweet sleeping!!

This post is going to kind of be a little of everything.  This is our every day life.

I just LOVE moments like this.  They really do love each other! 

Justin and the kids wrestling

That then lead to Lilley giving Daddy and Brantley a horsey ride.  She thought that she was so strong!! 

Brantley asked me if we could put these pics of him doing some of his tricks on his bike.  This one he's doing a wheelie

Standing on his seat...he is such a dare devil!
