Pumpkin Patch

I love Autumn!
 I went with Jenna on her Pre-School field trip to the local pumpkin patch. We had a blast!
         Jenna picked a cute pumpkin! (Don't you think MY little pumpkin is cute, too?)
 Jenna and a few of her friends with their pumpkin picks.
 So proud of her pumpkin!
 A pink tricycle? Yes, please!
 A little see-sawing with Aiden!
 Jenna loves the BIG slide.
 Time for some jumping!
 ...still time for jumping....Jenna are you done jumping yet?

A week later, the big kids had a day off of school so we played at the patch for a while.

 Brock was not pleased with this scarecrow.
Headed to the pumpkins...
 ...picks of the season.
Winter is approaching fast! We hope you had a great fall!

2012 Air Show!

We have been to an air show in Wichita before (did you know its the "Air Capital"?) but this was the first time we ewnt to the one on the Air Force base. It was very exciting and a lot of fun!
 Sky divers! They have red smoke packs on their feet so we can track them in a the sky a bit easier.
 Coming in for a landing.

Checking out the huge jet!

 Not the most comfortable seating...
 Not sure why I took this is a picture ..I guess to see the equipment.
 How do they get these enormous things to fly?!
 Cutest cargo I've seen!
Brock was in military mecca!

 Is that granade live?
 Hey Mom, I know what I want on my Christmas list!

Air Force Thunder birds! These guys were by far the coolest thing there. They did a bunch of stunt flying - it was amazing! They would get really close together and fly right towards each other then turn at the last second - very intense and exciting! Living in Wichita has a few perks ;)

Catching up...

OK, so its November and I am blogging abut September. Don't judge me!
My parents came during Labor day weekend for a visit and to celebrate my mother's birthday!
My kids always enjoy having Frufru and Pa come visit. I made a yummy chocolate cake and my dad picked up a Razzleberry pie - good times!
 Uncle James joined us for the celebration. Jenna adores him and was his shadow all weekend. He is a good sport to play so many games with her.
 I'm pretty sure Jenna cheated at Candyland...seems like it was always her turn, but they had fun.

 We got a new tent to break in over the weekend, but it was 110 degrees so opted to wait until fall.
 But we broke in the tent anyway, in the backyard during our BBQ.
After my parents left, we still had James for a few more days, so we went bowling!

 We were all pretty terrible, but we had fun!
The Weenie Mobile! Right here in Andover.

We finally went to eat at "Timbuktu"here in Andover with the famous, number one burger in all of Kansas! It was good...but I don't know about number one in the whole state. I asked for lettuce and tomato on my burger and they said they don't have any veggies on the menu. Oh. Ok then. But they had cute wooden cut outs that the kids enjoyed.

Jake turned 33 (my lucky number!) this year and the flames show it all! This spoiledy got two cakes because he couldn't choose which frosting he wanted.

"Who ate what? The chair? What chair? This chair? Oh, I'm not sure...wasn't me."
 When Brock eats an apple - he means business.
Thanks for playing catch up with us!
