Kyra at Music Class

Kyra has been going to a music class every Monday. She really enjoys going and is learning so much. It's been a lot of fun for me to watch her grow and try new things.

Swim Lessons

Drew just finished up a session of swim lessons. He really enjoys being in the water. This session, he put his whole head in the water, floated on his back, and practiced kicking and doing his arms.

In a park right outside of Drew's lessons, were some beautiful Christmas lights. One night after lessons, we walked through them. The kids had a great time, but it was pretty cold.

Halloween 2009

Last night, our friends, Kathy, Karl, Luke, and Josh, invited us over to their house to celebrate Halloween with them. Our other friends, Shannon, Chase, and Weston were there too! We had a great dinner, then got the kids ready to go trick-or-treating. We left their house about 6pm and had the streets to ourselves for at least 45mins. It was a beautiful night...probably around 50 degrees.

Both Drew and Kyra had so much fun running from house to house ringing the doorbells and saying trick-or-treat! We were out 2 whole hours. I think everyone had a fabulous time!

The Halloween gang! Kyra, Weston, Josh, Luke, & Drew

Kyra the butterfly!

Drew Batman

Drew's 1st EVER hockey practice!

Saturday morning, Drew had his first hockey practice. He got all geared up and was excited to go skate.

Mike getting Drew all dressed - the smiles a very good thing!

Mike helping Drew on the ice. Neither Mike or I was on the ice with him...just coaches.

Drew started off holding onto a chair in the beginning. He did great.

By the end of the hour, Drew (the 2nd boy with the red and green jersey) was skating ALL BY HIMSELF!!!

Drew did an amazing job! Mike and I were and are so proud of him. Drew is wearing a red and green Wild jersey. Enjoy the pictures and make sure to check out the video on the right side!

Mom's Group Halloween Party

On Wednesday afternoon, the mom's group had our annual Halloween party. It was a beautiful fall day in the park. It was a great party with a wonderful turnout. Drew and Kyra had so much fun being all dressed up in the Halloween costumes.

Fall'in in LOVE

I had to find some beautiful fall leaves and take a couple of pictures. I love fall; it's so pretty and way too short. The kids had some much fun playing with the leaves.

Decorating Halloween Cookies

Last week, the kids and I decorated yummy Halloween cookies at Kathy, Luke, and Josh's house. The kids had a great time decorating but more fun eating them.

Pet Store

With the mom's group, the kids and I got to tour a pet store. The kids really enjoyed looking, learning, and touching the animals.

Black Island Farm

A couple of weekends ago, we went to Black Island Farms to enjoy their fall festivities. As you can see from the pictures, the kids had a BLAST!!! Check out the video bar on the side too. We had a lot of fun.

Pumpkin Patch Hayride

This evening the kids and I went to Day Farms in UT and went on a hayride to an enormous pumpkin patch. We had so much fun!

The tractor took us on a ride to the pumpkin patch, but of course, it wouldn't be a Halloween hayride with out something jumping out at you and scaring us. Kyra did NOT like that. She was so scared to go back past them.

Once at the pumpkin patch, we walked among thousands of gigantic pumpkins. It was really hard to choose which one to pick, but with some encouragement, everyone found one they were happy with.

Beautiful night, beautiful view, with my beautiful kids! So much fun!

Dead Horse Point State Park

On Friday, we got up and check out of the hotel and headed towards Dead Horse Point State Park.

When we arrived at the park, we saw more amazing views. Mike made a great point, Arches were were on the ground and Dead Horse we were on top. Two completely different view points, both beautiful in thier own ways. Mike and I both prefered the ground view - Not sure his reasons, but mine was cause of the kids. I was afaid of taking my eyes off of them.

Dead Horse was a much much smaller park, but the view was breathtaking. There was paved trails along the edge of the point. Drew and Kyra had fun walking the trails and climbing on parent-aprroved rocks.

Enjoy the pictures!
