Pumpkin Patch

The Irvine Park pumpkin patch has become an annual tradition for us and the Boudreau family! Irvine park is just beautiful and the kids love the train, the wandering Peacocks, the maze, and of course the pumpkins. Gavin just lit up when he saw Mark and they loved rolling, throwing, and then lining up the pumpkins in straight rows.

Dennis the Menace!!

Well, it was our first Halloween at our new house. The great thing was that it looked like a haunted house without any decorations! hehe :) Gavin was "Dennis the Menace" this year...literally, so we thought it was a perfect time for that costume! :) He pulled his wagon all around the neighborhood, sling shot in hand, and we had a great time meeting our neighbors. We can't wait to finally move in! :)

Our first home!!


During AC install...

Welcome to our beautiful home, horseshoe and all!!!I know...I know...Its about time we posted pics. We moved in September and life has been crazy...but wonderful crazy! Thanks to the amazing Farr Family, we have had a great place to stay while we fix up our fixer upper! With high hopes of moving in in a month, we are now at 6 weeks, with a kitchen torn out and no bathroom floors or toilets. So, we like to tell ourselves that it will be, "Just 2 weeks more." We are definitely making headway though. My husband has been amazing, working full time during the day and working at the house every night and weekend. He has torn out the dog run on the side, torn out a kitchen, rebuilt cabinets, installed a dishwasher, sink, and stove top, and the list goes on. We have been so grateful to friends and family for all of their help (I'm starting to wonder if Mike and Shanna are glad we moved in so close). We honestly feel so blessed to have gotten this home and we can't wait to move in and build our family there! :) Hopefully "After" pics will be coming soon.

Happy 4th of July!!

Our usual tradition for the 4th grew this year! It remained in HB, just a lot more activities were planned!! We started the day with the 5k up and down Main St. I joined Claire and Mekaja, Celea, Shane, Linnea, and Dean for the stroller 5k and Josh joined Kyle for the "real" 5k run! :)
Next we watched the parade with the whole fam. I don't think I have one picture of Gavin without a Chip in his mouth or hand...what can I say...its the 4th! Oh well.
We then went to the beach all day and hung around the RV's and had a really relaxing day. We were joined by so many friends and family: The Torreys, The Boudreau's, Clarice and Co., Garrett and Chelsea and Co., Ryan, Sean, and Summer and Co. We ended the day with Fireworks and headed home!
God has truly blessed this Nation and I am so grateful for the freedom's that come with it! What a great thing to celebrate! Thank you Lord!!

Swim Lessons

When swim lessons come around it feels like Summer has finally arrived! We are joined by our great friends Mark and Shanna! This is our tradition of 2 years now and we hope to continue it for many years and with many kids. Shanna has the head start with baby number 2 due in just a few weeks! The boys have improved so much this year and have a blast together! They love to blow bubbles, hang out on the wall together screaming, and of course jumping in at the same time! We bring sack lunches and enjoy the sun as we shed the chill the cold water left. Our sweet little pale Gavin even has a farmers tan this year...we are so proud! :)Photos courtesy of Nana!! :)
