Pumpkin Patch Field trip

Tyler had a field trip to a local pumpkin patch and I was able to take Kai with me this time! We got to go on a hay ride to a field of pumpkins and let the kids all choose any pumpkin they wanted to take home, then we went to a small petting zoo and a hay maze. The girls had so much fun and the Pumpkin Patch was so neat. We also bought our pumpkins that we will carve this weekend and we got Daddy and really big one, can't wait to show you all after we carve them. It was a beautiful sunny day (thank goodness because yesterday it was not), and the girls were very good and really had a great time.

                            This is the pumpkin that Tyler chose!

  This is Tyler's preschool class with Mrs. Teresa in the middle of them all.

                                                                     My fun girls!

 I love when I can spend some time with both my girls and do fun things.

We did a family day on Saturday and went with some friends to Mt Rainer and did some Jeepin on an off-road vehicle trail. It's been years since Austin has taken his Jeep out and he loved every minute of it and to be able take me and the kids was way fun for him. The girls just loved it! They helped Daddy drive and they ran around in the mud and just had a really good time. Not to mention how beautiful it was! It happened to be a clear day and Mt Rainer was just amazing! Here are some pic's from our fun day....

This waterfall was really cool because it cut right between the rocks.

Fun pic huh? We have these sings all over by us... we are in the path for the volcano!

A Polka Dot Room

A couple weeks ago I painted and decorated Tyler's room as a birthday present. I had been wanting to do the polka dot theme and I was so excited when I was able to do this project.

As you can see in the before pictures, her walls were just white and plain.

Now her walls are pink and brown with polka dots. Her duvet cover has polka dots, her lamp has polka dots, and her piggy bank has polka dots..... What do you think?

And with Austin's help, we took this old drawer set that was given to us and completely stripped the old paint off, sanded it down, and painted it to match the room.
Overall, I love it and so does Tyler.

Tyler's Birthday Party

Tyler had a jungle animal birthday party last Saturday and it was so much fun! I made this elephant birthday cake, we had a zebra pinata, jungle print goody bags with jungle suckers, animal print slap bracelets, the whole works!!

Every child got a turn to hit the zebra and by the end it was not broken yet, so Austin played base ball with it in the street.

Even Kai had a turn!

Overall it was a beautiful day (not so common around here), all our friends came and we all had a great time celebrating Tyler's 4th birthday!
