Happy Halloween

Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat! 

The boys had a good time at the Trunk or Treat.

Fun with Friends

We go to the Life and Science museum almost every week and we always bring friends with us.  Reed loves the outside park! 
All of our husbands were gone on Saturday, so did a pizza/movie night with all the kids.

We call this the Slide Train.  The kids can do this forever!


Jimmy is really loving preschool.  The week's theme was dinosaurs, so we went to life and science museum and searched for fossils in the dinosaur area.  The boys were in heaven! 
While Jimmy is at preschool, Reed and I get some one-on-one time.  He was pretty bummed to miss out on dinosaurs, so we went to a dinosaur themed park. #momwin 
Not only does Jimmy love preschool, but Mom loves it too.  Preschool has done a great job teaching Jimmy how to share and interact with other kids. 
I taught Preschool on the week of Halloween.  We went trick-or-treating around our apt complex and the kids loved it!

We also decorated Halloween cookies for snack time.

We had a week where the theme was Wings and Capes.  Besides learning about superheroes and fairies, we talked about airplanes and went to a park at the airport.  We got to watch the airplanes take off and land while the kids had a fun time!

Arizona Trip

I was really worried about the plane trip but the boys did awesome!  Check out our cute plane selfie! 
The tractor was Jimmy's favorite part about the farm.  

Reed, cousin Brucie, and Grandpa!

The boys are all ready for bed in their superhero pajamas.  I love this picture! 
Jimmy is trying on Aunt Allisons' turkey hat.  

Pirate Day at Krispy Kreme with Great Grandma! 
We went to go feed the ducks at the library.  

Grandpa set up a tent for the boys and they only played in it for about two minutes, but at least we got a cute picture from it first.

Check out our cute pianists!

Pony Ride

I thought the boys would love riding the pony at Grandpa's house.  I was wrong... 

We let George ride the pony to try to convince the kids, but nothing worked.  What kid wouldn't want to ride a pony?!

Preschool and Playgroups

Preschool is going great!  Jimmy is having a lot of fun and learning lots!

Girls' Night in the convertible!  We felt pretty cool! 
Pizza night! 
We took a bus to Time Out for chicken and biscuits.  YUM! 

We loaded up the minivan with toddlers while I was babysitting.   
We learned about colors in our last koala crate!

Both of the boys love the activities in the koala crate!

Our Kidzu pass is almost expired, so we are trying to get in as much visits as we can before it's too late.
