Rileys Farm

This is a family tradition and why we don't visit Riley's Farm more often is beyond me.  I am glad we go at Halloween time.  This was the first year we went by ourselves and I'm not gonna lie, it was kind of nice.  We did what we pleased and took the time we wanted and just loved being together as a family.  After the tragedy that took place in Connecticut I am going to learn to treasure these moments and make as many memories as possible.  This was a fabulous day with my family.  

Please note the many poses Kamryn strikes in many of the pictures.  Haha!

Preschool Field Trip!

Yeah for the Pumpkin Patch!!

The Kids!

This little girl turned 11 months on October 9th.  So close to 1!  It truly is amazing to see how fast time flies.  She is so animated and full of life.  She is our happiest baby by far, however, she is our worst sleeper and that has been challenging.  She loves to move around and get into things, especially whatever her siblings are doing.  She LOVES being outside.  I'm getting anxious for her to walk just so she can stop destroying her pants from crawling around outside.  We love her to death and she is such a fun addition to our family. 

 Logan is 3 1/2 now and he has a constructive mind.  He is a smart kid and his favorite thing to do currently is put together any puzzle he can get his hands on.  Plus, he loves angry birds and tries to play it as often as Mommy lets him.  He is my sensitive child that I can cuddle with and he is such a sweetheart.

 Kamryn is 6 and loves friends and having playdates.  This is Kamryn with one of her best friends, Jayden.  She got to spend the day with us back in October and it couldn't last long enough.  They had such a great time playing together.  Kamryn loves her toys.  Mostly her Barbies and My Little Ponies.  She has a very creative mind and she still keeps us on our toes.

Celebrating a 30th in the 30's.

I definitely look washed out in this pic, but it shows the gist of my costume.  
This is a pic of the birthday girl.  She turned 30 and we celebrated it by dressing up like we were from the 30's.  We had such a great time!  

This was one of the funnest nights Jason and I have had in awhile.  Dancing, food, friends and lots of fun!

Crazy hair and cute pictures of Mar...yn. :)

My nephew's birthday is also in September and he had a "Crazy hair" themed birthday.  Here are the ladies with their silly hair.  
 Personally, I think Maryn was the winner. :)
I posted this picture because it is just DANG CUTE!!

The Bartletts are here!

So, we decided to hit the beach ONE LAST TIME before fall came, in celebration of the fact that our good friends, the Bartletts, had decided to grace us with their presence for a weekend.  They moved to Nebraska back in February and we missed them a lot.  So, we were so excited they were coming to visit and Jason said it was even worth going to the beach AGAIN!  We have been to the beach a record three (or was it four?) times this year.
We are so glad we went because we loved being able to hang out with all our Upland Crew.  There were a couple scary moments for us though.  Logan was pretty close to being swept away by a wave and the poor little guy also took a tumble down some cement stairs and got a decent bloody nose, but he came out of both  incidents without any serious injury and we were grateful for that.  It was so fun to see our friends and we can't wait for next summer when they will come visit us again, hopefully.

 Please ignore how utterly white I look in this picture, especially next to all my tan friends.  Not cool!
 This poor little girl had a slight reaction to sunscreen on her face, but it didn't stop her from enjoying herself. :)

Mommy's birthday (Age will not be disclosed).

So another birthday has come and gone.  This year we celebrated as a family at Farrells.  This place is crazy!  The decor is colorful and I love that it is an Ice Cream Parlour restaurant, but it is loud and they thrive on embarrassing anyone that dares enter.  I hate being sung to at restaurants and this one was the worst, but they did not make me get up and dance.  I was grateful for that since I had seen it happening around the restaurant.  But they bang on drums and announce to all they are singing to you and I could have done without all of that.  However, the kids loved it and they got cool balloons so it was worth it.

 Farrell' was a fun experience but I will not be gracing your restaurant again for awhile.  :)

A Party to Remember

Kamryn has a sweet friend from school that invited her to her birthday party.  It was at a place called Olivia's Teahouse and it was a night to remember.  First, she was able to pick out a dress, shoes and accessories.  She loved doing that and I think she did a great job. 

Then, she got to have her nails and makeup done.  

Next, came her hair.  

Here is the final product.  She looked so cute. 

This is Kamryn with the birthday girl, Amanda. 

They had a dress that was pretty similar to Kamryn's dress so my friend thought it would be fun if we took a picture together in our "matching" outfits.  Not tacky at all.  haha!

 The girls got to do a fashion show for all the parents that were there.  This was Kamryns final pose.
 After the fashion show, they sat down and enjoyed a little tea party.  It was a dream come true for this little princess. :)

Here are all the girls that were lucky enough to be apart of this birthday celebration.  It was awesome!
