summerlin pumpkin festival

in early october we attended the summerlin pumpkin festival. it was so much fun. they had bounce houses, face painting, games, food, and of course a pumpkin patch. the kids got to take a few pictures with some of their favorite characters.

sponge bob and patrick did a few songs on stage and kate wanted to go up there. i told her kids cant go on stage, and she wasn't too happy. but then she got to march around the field with them doing a train


we signed johnny up for soccer in the fall. his team is the canaries, and coach sherman is really great with the kids. he even scored a goal the first game! he doesn't love soccer, so this may be the last season for us. i think it was fun to try though..

go braves

in ausust darren and i got to take a quick trip to LA. we were there for a baseball game but got to visit rodeo drive and the LA temple too

we got awesome seats to the dodgers vs braves game. darren has been a huge braves fan since childhood, so he was very happy when they won

dodger stadium has a great view of LA. it was a beautiful day


the kids celebrated their birthdays together this summer. johnny's was in july and kate's in august. i took the kids to build-a-bear for the first time for one of their gifts. kate made a hello kitty and johnny made a black bear.

i had a party for them at my parents' house. i did a hawaiian themed party. we swam and barbecued, and even had a pinata. it was a fun day.

4th of july

4th of july is one of my favorite holidays because the festivities last all day. we started with the summerlin parade which was surprisingly great. we will definitely be back next year. then we went to my parents house for swimming and BBQ. the kids spent the evening with their dad, and darren and i went with my family to the amazing fireworks show in boulder city. then the boys had to light off a few more at home. we had a great time.

the kids loved all the different floats. they even had a few disney characters and passed out candy.
i love to make the kids get all festive lol
