We did the Puyallup!

Oh we did it alright...7 1/2 hrs at the fair. Yes, you read that right. $100 later we were broke, tired and hungry. We did not intend to stay that long, but my car was getting new tires on it. We dropped it off in the am, but they did not start until 3:30pm so I had to drag out the time. My camera ran out of batteries 15 min after we were there, fun! The kids had a lot of fun and they all loved rides. We met a girlfriend and her kids for part of the day. The favorite of course was the scrambler (even Natalie rode it). We found the John Deer store and that was fun. Reilly found a Gator which he loved. He wanted to know if we could "trade" his tractor for it. We love the 4H Dog Obedience Show, and just watching all the people and animals. The day ended by Natalie running (in flip flops) and vering off into the spa place, tripping, flying into the stairs and hitting her nose so hard she screamed a terrible scream. The entire fair seemed to go silent as everyone watch me. She is fine, but it was tramatic. It was such a long day topped off by daddie taking us to dinner at our favorite place, Red Robin.

Arts & Crafts

The kids love doing arts & crafts. Today we learned about South & Central America. We got to learn about all sorts of animals and cut & paste them on to our map. We learned about the Andes mountains, the rainforest, the grassland and the Amazon. The kids are like sponges with this stuff. They love looking at maps and trying to figure out where we are and how many miles away the rainforests are. Reilly even knew what a Scarlet McCaw was from Diego. Just proves my point that TV is not all bad, right?

Thommason Family Farm

We went to a new pumpkin patch this year just 4 mi from our house. It was great and cheap. I would highly recommend it as they had so much fun stuff for kids and decked out in John Deer so Reilly was thrilled. It was another great day!


It is my favorite time of year. The leaves turn beautiful colors orange, yellow, purples. The kids and I love to explore so we went on a nature hike around the neighborhood. It was so much fun! Natalie was napping so we did not go to far, but we did pick pumpkins right out of our own backyard. The boys thought this was fantastic.
