Spooky Halloween

Took the boys to the Brooks School carnival on Friday night. They are such little busy bodies this is my documentation of the night. They thought the pumpkin patch was fun, all the different games they could play and then the prizes. I use to go to this carnival when I was young to it makes me feel old and also full circle bring them to this. I also will never forget Max climbing up the jungle gym in his dog costume with his bushy little bum with his dog tail up in the air. It is an image that was so sweet and cute I hope it is ingrained in my mind forever. Also the pure innocents of playing on the playground in your dog costume completely unabashed. Love what these little people teach me daily. Hope your Halloween is nice and spooky!

Noah and Cambria

These two have been buddies since birth. Noah met cambria the day she was born, in fact they day I was leaving the hospital after Noah was born her mom, my dearest friend Cortney came to have her! They have a special bond and love each other and play together so well, most of the time!  I hope that we always stay close and that I can document their lives together as they grow up!  Such a sweet thing to know someone for so long. Love this second generation friendship.

Castle Park

Today we ventured down to Folsom and play in the castle park. This park opened when I was young and my mom would bring us and we would play hide and seek for hours. It was so neat and big to us and now the boys get to enjoy it too! We played in the sand and I looked at the big trees surrounding the park. The are so golden and filled with leaves just about to fall off. Fall is almost here I can taste smell it in the hair. These boys keep me busy park hopping from day to day. 

These boys love trucks, dirt, and sand so much. Noah has inherited a love for it like Max. Give them sand and some things to play with and they will play for hours. It can be almost relaxing to me to sit and watch them play unless I have to interfere with fighting. It has been hard for Max to share which can be frustrating because I know it is typical for a 3 year old, but then he gets mad when people don't want to share with him. How do you teach this? Do you make your kids share or let them play with their own stuff? I always think if Max's is playing with other kids things then he can share his. We are still learning and figuring out how to teach this, I hope he gets better and is more inclined just to share and be kind.

A morning at the Temple.

My group of friends all got together and decided this fall we were going to make a calendar of scheduled play dates. Someone host everyone at their house for lunch and playing one week then later in the week we do an outing like the park, zoo, river ect. Today we all met at the temple and had the kids walk around the temple for awhile and then we took them to lunch and played in the play place, super classy but also relaxing and fun for the moms to talk while the kids were safe inside a play place. The temple was beautiful in the morning and we brought AJ along as well. Max keeps calling the temple a castle and wants to go inside. We almost have one kid jump or fall into the fountain in front but overall it was a success. It is nice to walk around it and let the kids know what a special place it is, I think they know or can feel it. Even though they were a little loud, they all were super excited to be around it. Kids are still so close to the vail I feel like, thats why they are so easy to teach the gospel to, it's like they really know it they only left heaven recently. I really believe it.
