A playground in the basement!

Matt got the sudden urge to add monkey bars and 2 play houses to our basement. 
Matt's parents came down to help get it started.

October-November...finally caught up!

We went back to Indian Shores, FL for fall break.  We had a great time.







 Someone is a bit of a diva.


 We found a great State Park and will definitely be going back next time we are in the area.










 There were almost as many rocks as there were shells....way too rocky in spots.  But Brigham loved that part.










 She was SO tired.  Super glad we had the stroller so we could carry our lunch, a kid, pails full of shells and other random items.


 Disney World did not disappoint.  The weather was pretty perfect. We had fun with Grandma and Grandpa.
The kids REALLY wanted to ride the Seven Dwarfs ride, so we went there first and stood in line for an hour (at 1 point in the day there was a 4 hour wait for the ride).


 It was fun, the kids appear to have enjoyed it, but afterwards the younger 2 thought it was scary.


 Mickey's Philharmagic is always a fun one with the kids.  I LOVE watching the kids during the show.




 Riding the train.  He was REALLY tired, but really excited to ride it.


 While everyone except for the 2 cute little ones and myself, rode/waited in line to ride Splash Mountain, we did the teacups and the people mover.

 This isn't something they do...like ever.
 Back to the beach!



 Matt, his parents and Ally did a free guided canoe experience while the kids and I hung out. 














 Before we left for home we got some final pictures on the beach.
We had fun and got nice and tan!






 These 2 can't stay normal for too long.















 I'm super glad the kids got our good tanning genes!
We used lots of sunscreen, so they didn't burn, but turned a nice brown shade.

 Lucy was awarded an excellence t-shirt.
 Lucy and her awesome teacher.
 We went on a hay ride.
