Fall Break

Caleb has been on fall break over the past few weeks and we've enjoyed having him home. Although, there are more fights, tantrums and lazy days but it all comes with the territory! This one day we were reading books together and I just thought it was fun so I took a pic of my three kids reading!(Bree still doesnt care to sit up so I've been trying to trick her into thinking that it can be the Bumbo!)
Then, last week, my poor baby started sporting black eyes! I notice sometimes her brothers can be on the rough side, and I'm usually very cautious but I guess they got her pretty good and now she has 2 nice shiners! Oh well, she lasted 6 months without one at least!
Then last Tuesday my sweet SIL Krista called and said, "I'm heading into town!" She and her family live in Prescott Valley so it was a great surprise! We got to hang out with her and her kiddos for a few hours. So we took everyone to Mother Nature's farm and had lots of fun.

The kids got to do a hayride, decorate pumpkins, feed the goats, pigs and cow and jump in the big bouncer (a favorite of my kids)!

This was Caleb's favorite thing to do...feed the cow. He loved petting him and saying "moo!" In this picture, he is trying to give the cow a kiss!
The price is $7/kid and $3/adult, which is more than I thought it was worth, but at least we all had fun!

Alisa was able to join us so we had a lot of the cousins get together. I just love cousin shots like this! I was trying a bit of editing on my computer. Ah, someday I'll get photoshop and have even more fun!
Thanks girlies, we had a blast and it was wonderful to see you Krista!
