Fall fun!

What a fun filled fall weekend!

We got to spend this afternoon at our very favorite pumpkin patch, Hidden Valley!
Hayrides, pumpkins, bounce houses, music, animals and most importantly HOT cinnamon apple donuts! 
The weather this weekend has surely been a gift!
Note Brad carrying my backpack and holding Braden's pickle...fatherhood at it's finest!

Reese's teacher was also at the farm!  She's been her teacher these past 2 years and she is incredible with the kiddos!!  We love her!
We also enjoyed some afternoon tea this weekend!  Real tea party with this girl!??? Yes please!
We celebrated this sweet friend's B-day!



Such sweet times together!
Braden has officially started basketball season! He had his first game this weekend and did awesome! He's very excited about his new sport!
This last pic is reminding me that I need to post all of our pics from our trip last weekend!  We snuck in a little get-a-way to a deserted island to celebrate our anniversary! 
I'll catch up one of these days! :-)

Jason Mraz

My brother treated me to an amazing concert! We could have sat there all night listening to such talented musicians!

It's not often that I drive to Columbus in the middle of the week to go to a concert til 1:00am! But it was well worth it! Thanks Dave, you're the best!!

With daddy out of town this week, braden was missing donuts with dads this morning... So Papa drove 4 hours here last night just to attend the event this morning at 6:45, then headed back home at 7:30am. 


Wow! We are so blessed!! Thanks Papa for making this little boy so happy this morning!! It meant the world to him!

Great wolf lodge!

All summer long, while Brad was working his long hard hours, I kept thinking about what our family could do together to celebrate the completion of his project! 

Great Wolf Lodge seemed like the perfect fit! 

We picked a weekend, invited some amazing friends to join us and soon we were off!



I think my hubby was just as excited as the kids!
Can't you tell!? :-)

Cutest little bear cub!
This is what the water park looked like inside!
Adalei is exploring the wave pool!
She definitely found her groove!
Reese loved the water slides the most!




At night, there was a story time for all the kids...
...

The next day, we were back to the water park! Braden's favorite part was this rope course. 
I was honestly surprised he could do it because I am not sure that I can, but he did it many, many times in a row and was definitely a pro!
He turned around at the end to wave hello, I think this rope course really boosted his confidence!
Lounging around waiting for lunch!
The kiddos had 2 fun filled days at the water park and were definitely ready to leave at the end.  It didn't take long for all of them to crash in the car. 
Even after bringing them inside, it took quite some time to wake them up!  I guess swimming fun does that to you! 

So thankful for a fabulous weekend of making memories with friends!

With all this crazy weather we have seen some gorgeous rainbows this week!




We found another one but it came and went in seconds!
So glad I was with my kiddos to catch these treasures in the sky!  These little moments are the big moments in life!
