For the love of chapstick

Katie loves chapstick.  She can easily devour a tube in a day.  We have no extra tubes lying around anymore - they have all been consumed.  Most recently Katie found a tube we had stashed for Will when his lips get chapped.  Next thing we knew, poor Bunny was the latest victim of over chapsticking.

Pumpkin Carving with the Blanchards

We had a great time carving pumpkins with the Blanchards! Chuck prepped the pumpkins for carving and the kids had a blast trying to carve their pumpkins.


We had a great time trick-or-treating with our fire chief and fire dog.  We met up with their good friend Eisley (a princess) and hit the streets for candy.

The Zoo with Armando and Adele

 We had a great time visiting the zoo with Armando and Adele.  The kids loved riding the carousel, taking pictures in the photo booth, feeding the giraffes and just running around together playing.  They were all smiles.

 Will asked this girl for her number so they could have a play date

The couldn't wait to see their pictures from the photo booth

Highland Park's Centennial Celebration

 The town of Highland Park celebrated it's 100th birthday last weekend.  There was an awesome party at Lakeside Park, complete with zip lines, bounce houses, rock climbing walls, sno-cones, and cupcakes!  The kids had a blast - we were there for 3.5 hours!

Enjoying her first sno-cone of the day
