Happy Halloween!!

We have had our fair share of fall and Halloween activities over the past few weeks. We have been to Pumpkin Patch/Corn Maze, Pumpkin walk (put on by the city, really neat, over 1000 carved pumpkins along a trail and lit), playgroup trick or treat, and school parties. So we have already taken pictures of the Halloween costumes and by some miracle they have all decided to keep the same costumes for tonight. So here are the pictures!!!

Single Mom

Well I am at day 9 of 10 of being a single Mom. Tank left on the 20th of October to go on his trip. He headed back over to his mission stomping grounds (Rome). He flew into Paris to meet a Mission companion. They have spent the last 9 days together exploring London, Paris, Rome, Naples, And many other cities that youwill hear about later when he gets home and see his pictures!! I thought I would do a quick comparison of Tanks past 10 days and my past ten days!!

What Tank is eating:

What I am eating:

I would much rather spend time with these cute guys than travel the world!!

Black Island Farms

Last week our neighborhood all gathered at Black Island farms which is a corn maze/pumpkin patch /playground all in one. The kids had a blast we got to pick pumpkins, go through the kiddie maze, go down slides, ride in a train and have lunch. We were there for 3 hours and the kids were so sad to leave, me, not so much!!! I am glad that we go and do fun stuff like this because I really want to create memories with the boys but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming by myself. So lucky for me, my poor friend Sheryl and her son Ty get dragged around everywhere with us and she ends up doing the things with the boys that I can't because I am holding Cooper. (Like going down the huge grain shoot slide! So thanks a bunch Sheryl you are a lifesaver!!!

I saw this on my friends blog and thought I would try it because everyone is always trying to figure out which of the boys looks like who. So here is a look at what this website thought!

Oh what a trip!!!!

Well, I did it! I can now say I successfully traveled down to St. George and back with the kids by myself! I can't complain too much because all in all the boys were pretty good. They were good the last half of the trip on the way down there and good the first half of the trip back! It took us about 6 hours to make the 4 hour 45 minute trip regularly. We had to stop 4 times by time we got to Filmore which is about 2 and 1/2 hours to our destination but after we had lunch and hit the city park it was smooth sailing from there. We got to see some old friends while in St. George, We hung out with the Cummins, Joye, Chloe, and Claire (such cute girls!!) and the Housekeepeers, Lyndsi, Darin, Jace, Luke, and Lily. (Cute, fun family!) The boys had a good time hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa, Uncles Ryan and Brandon, Aunt Daylemarie and of course their cousin Jayla. We ended up cutting the trip short due to a storm headed for up north but we really had a great time while were there. But like any trip it is nice to be home!!

A Day at the Zoo (Yes the actual zoo, not our house!)

For another fun activity while Caleb was on track break we headed down to Hogle Zoo. This was our first visit this year. The boys had a really good time running around looking at all the animals.

The zoo recently installed a new carousel so we all took a ride on it. We went with our track break friends the Witts which made it nice for all of us, Caleb and Cole had friend to pal around with and Brock hung out with Sheryl so it was a lot easier on me. Cooper like always was a trooper!!!

I think the boys favorite part was going to the bird show.The birds fly right above your head. So after 3 hours of looking at animals, lunch, and a trip to the gift shop we were on our way home! Brock wasn't the only one who was pooped!
