Late Birthday Celebration

Well, my girlfriends from work took me out on the town for a late b-day celebration!! We had such a great time- went out dancing and I absolutely love to dance (although I'm not so sure I'm the best dancer- but I'm not Elaine either:)

Fall Festival

Today we decided to head out to the new Park at River Walk and enjoy the festival activities. There were lots of craft booths, food, and some games for the kids.

Tessa had her face painted,

They both played at the bubble station,

And I had to bribe them for this "sisterly" shot at the end of our day :)

Despite it still feeling like it was 90 degrees outside, we had fun!

Super Bee-havior!

Well, miss Tessa has earned Super Bee four times now!! This is an award from her kindergarten teacher for good behavior in class... being kind, caring, or helpful. I am soooo proud of our Super-Girl!

Brooke as a clown

Our good friends hired Brooke (in the black outfit) and another girl to work at her daughters birthday party passing out balloons. She was so excited to get paid a little cash.

Life is tiring

Aaron fell asleep in the bike trailer after a long day of playing hard and a bike ride. This is how I found him.

Aaron loves to take hour long baths. I try to bribe him to get out but sometimes it doesn't work.

On Wednesday, the kids asked me if we could go swimming, so i let my dare devils try it out. They were in the pool for about 20 minutes and decided the water was too cold.
