Fun Friday...

We met Daddy at work for a little "trick or treating"...Josh pulled a last minute costume change and played the part well.
Then we were off for lunch and an afternoon hike with friends...
This is Micaiah's friend "Mick" (in the orange shirt) aka Micaiah and Joshua's friend Josh behind him in this picture...
Micaiah informed me later that they were shooting British soldiers...

that counts as history right?

Micaiah's first goal!


As you can tell the cameraman got a little excited so you miss some of the dribbling but definitely a memory worth capturing!

What??!!...

Micaiah pushes on my chest and says...

"I guess you'll be using those utters pretty soon to feed the baby milk."


Wow...utters...really?

It's Happening...

Micaiah read 3 books to Eli and Joshua before bed tonight...at one point they were all in this chair (Micaiah and Joshua side by side and Eli in Josh's lap)


you could see the joy in his face when he completed one book and quickly grabbed another...especially after Eli started singing "Micaiah read another book, Micaiah read another book, Micaiah read another book, we shall dance and sing!" (Yes, this is a little song that I made up...did the repetitive lines give it away?)

Hot Air Fun...

Wow...the boys had a blast at the Balloon Festival this past weekend. We attended a race on Saturday afternoon. This is a picture of "Mountain Momma II" being filled with "hot air!"


It was the first balloon to get into the air that afternoon. It's basket carried the Balloon Festival Queen and Princess...tiara and all!
some of the other balloons...Josh's favorite was the yellow one at the top (it had a buffalo on it)
some of the boys and Grandma...

Weekend Fun cont...

On Sunday, we pretended we were balloon chasers. "What hot air balloon chasing entails is the balloons launching and then following on the ground to see where the hot air balloon lands." Thankfully this was Daddy's hometown so he knew his way around.
So...with Mommy dry heaving in the front seat and the boys expressing concern we were not going to catch them...
Daddy worked hard under pressure (this seems to be his specialty as of late) and delivered on his promise once again!
and then we were off to "close up camp" but not before we took one more walk down to the lake!
