Halloween Fun!

So today we decided to dress the kids up and go to the Wildlife Experience Trick or Treat off the Street.  Planned on getting there at 10:30, alas left the house at 11.  BUT had a great time.  It wasn’t too wild and crazy.  But we had to take some before pics:


And they had a great spot there to take pictures.  So we got this one of the gang:


Kids got a bunch of loot and had a great time! 

(oh anyone interested in my weight loss I am down a total of 2.8 since I started.  Not great, but at least going in the right direction!)

Harvest Festival and Littleton Museum

Well DS had a school field trip to the Historic Littleton Museum.  We had such a good time!  The place was great and the kids had so much fun!  Since I am feeling lazy, but wanting to update, here are some pics of him and his school friends:


Ethan had so much fun, he didn’t want to leave! 

Then we went to a FREE harvest Festival in Castle Rock.  They had tractors the kids could climb on!


Then Ethan, Nyla and I went for a hay ride and had someone take our picture.


Then Ethan and Nyla enjoyed doing Tiger races!


And gavin being cute!


We got Ethan a helmet and jersey for his costume.  I guess we forgot to tell Nyla the helmet was for Ethan and not her!


Well, that is all for now.  Hope to post Halloween pics after this weekend! 

Nyla turns 2!

Well, in early October my little girl turned 2!  She is my little princess.  I emphasis LITTLE.  she moved up to the 10th Percentile in weight, up to 23 pounds!  She is also in about the 25th percentile for height.  But she is spunky!  We celebrated her birthday with our families and had a great time!


My parents were in town as well, but we didn’t get any pictures of them.  I am so bad with taking pictures!  At least my mom and mother-in-law was there to use my camera!

Good Times!

Well, how could I forget to brag about our awesome family?!?!  In mid-September, Brian & I got to have an all-night date night.  Brian’s Brother & SIL bought us a Denver Brew’s Cruise with babysitting.  So, we got to enjoy a night of local brews with no kids to worry about.  It was great!  Check out the Denver Brew’s Cruise if you are interested!

Then, when we got home all 10 of us decided to walk to our neighborhood park.  Here are some pictures from it.





A good time was had by all!  We are so grateful to have such wonderful family/friends and that they are one in the same.

We got sent a pumpkin dress-up dress for Nyla from my niece in Minnesota.  Nyla immediately fell in love! 


Then this past weekend Ethan, Nyla and I went to a great event put together by the National Wildlife Federation.  It was called “Hike & Seek.”  All I have to say was GREAT TIME!!! It was over in Littleton and was about a mile or so walk/hike with learning stations along the way.  It was mid to high 70s during the walk….in OCTOBER!  Here are a couple shots of the kids.



Listening about mammals.




This is at the insect learning station.



We look forward to this event next year!!!
