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.
