I really love having a blog to record things that our little family is up to but why does it have to feel so overwhelming when I haven't blogged in a few weeks and all of the sudden I have a million pictures and no time to spend writing about them? Story of my life right now. Let's quickly get caught up October, shall we?
A few days after Trav and Em left us, Tyler was leaving us for ten days to go cruise on the Oasis (lucky dude... sometimes I really want his job), so my mom came in to keep me and the kids company for a few days.
We met up with friends and did some Halloween stuff:
We spent some time at Jungle Island:
On Tuesday, Mom was leaving us. We hadn't gotten enough of her so we decided to jump on a flight and head back to Utah with her.
The day after we got to Utah, we woke up to snow.The first day of snow fall is my FAVORITE day of the year and since I never get that in Florida, it made the entire trip worth it. Me and the kids were so pumped to be able to play in it all day. I really miss winter so much.
The next day we hit up the Dinosaur museum with my sis-in-law and some of her friends:
We did the annual Cushing Halloween party (my mom REALLY knows how to party):
and we went to the Children's museum. How great is it that I could use my science museum pass from Florida to get into the children's museum in Utah for FREE?!
We wanted to be back to Florida for Halloween so we headed back the following day. On Halloween we went to the library for a storytime and trick or treating:
That night we had our traditional chili, breadsticks and homemade donuts (YUMM)
For trick or treating we hooked up with some friends and headed out for a couple of hours. I didn't get one good picture of Owen and Collette in their Halloween costumes together. I really want to be one of those moms who takes amazing pictures and has super cute posed pic but it's never going to happen. I'm too super lazy and never reach for anything more than my phone to take pictures.
