Picking Pumpkins

We were so lucky to be able to go to one of Jeff's students farms to pick out our pumpkins this year. It was such a different world for the boys to actually see them growing in the ground. We also went home with a lot of potatoes, corn, and carrots too. Yum! I love making memories like this...and I think my boys had a great time too.

Amazingly large carrots! My boys chomped on these for a good proud of my healthy little munchkins.

Yep, this is seriously a carrot.

Ahhhh....he's getting too big too fast!

He just melts myheart! I love how easily entertained he is....everything was so exciting to him.

We went to the Bon Jovi concert a few weeks ago, and it was soooo much fun! Jeff got me tickets for my birthday....he's so sweet! I have to say, even though Bon Jovi is getting older, he can still rock out like crazy! There were plenty of interesting people there to watch, including an old man and his wife bear hugging to all the slow songs, and when it got hot in there, he unbuttoned his shirt all the way down...eww! It was great entertainment all the way around.
Me and my cute hubby! What a fun night!
The best pic I got! He really does have so much energy (even for a guy his age). There was multiple times we thought he was going to pass out....he was so fun to watch!
The cute couple before the concert started...Awwww!
Close...but you've got the wrong hand up! Pretty sure I put a little more effort into my pose.
Don't I look just like him?
What are 2 seminary teachers doing at a Bon Jovi concert?

Fall Festivities!

Pumpkin Land is one of our favorite places to go in the fall. My boys talk about it for weeks! It is one of my favorite places to, because I get to watch them have so much fun, and it makes me so grateful to have my cute family.
My cute boys are growing up too fast!
My boys seriously love this place. Every year we come here, and have so much fun!
My cute little "Bridge Man"
We tried...I don't think they have a clue what is going on.
Cooper holding a snake the was found there. He loves bugs, reptiles, animals etc. He is never scared to pick up anything--Ew!
All of my cute boys --getting lost in the corn maze
We couldn't get him out of the bounce house...he loved it!
The whole family at the end of a long day
Bridger picking out his pumpkin
My boys LOVE painting their pumpkins! Yes, we had to strip them down to their undies so that paint doesn't end up everywhere.

We went to the Cancun for our 11 year anniversary (well almost 11 years in August). We stayed at Azul Beach....which is the most amazing place I have ever stayed in my life. We had such a blast, and want to go again -like tomorrow. Thanks to Greg & Becky for watching our kiddos, and making this all possible for us.

Having dinner at one of the restaurants at our resort
The beach and ocean were so gorgeous!
This was the view from our balcony. And yes, I know Jeff looks hot in his plush robe..hehe
Me enjoying my plush robe too...
We loved the hanging beds in the bar. The world cup was on, so we spent a lot of time here watching on the flatscreens.
So kids (even though I missed them like crazy) cute hubby getting in some reading
This was pure heaven!!!!!
Hangin out by the pool
This was at Playa Del Carmen, a small little European village. We did some shopping, but didn't do so great at bargaining with the mexicans..whats up with that?
We went to this amazing place called Xhel-Ha. It was a huge natural coral reef that was so fun to snorkel in. It also has a river that flows into the ocean, so when you're snorkeling you can see where the fresh water mixes with the salt water and it looks like your swimming in jello. So very cool! We also went tubing down the river, saw dolphins and manatees too. We had such a fun day here.
Just some parrots chillin in the background---love this place.
This is my favorite picture. Jeff is cliff jumping, but it looks like he is flying..HA!
These little guys were everywhere...or should I say big guys. HUGE IGUANAS!
Hello Mr. Iguana
This is at a Sinote (huge sinkhole). Looking down was amazing! You can only get into it from a small little opening , and it opens up into this huge place. It was at least 30 degrees cooler than outside it too.

Down in the Sinotes. The water was pretty cold!
The Mayan Ruins...
Chichen-Itza..... this place was so cool!! And well worth the 2 1/2 long hours in a small van with 3 other couples. It was smokin hot here ocean breeze-we were dying!!!
