The last few weeks have been crazy busy so I’m trying to get caught up with pictures so I least I have some record of fall:) We’ve been busy with fall sports, camping, getting ready for our church fall festival, and my real estate business has been really busy lately too (great problem to have!!).
We’ve been able to make it to one of my niece’s volleyball games.
Over Labor Day, we went out to the State Fair. Some friends were showing pigs, so we went to the pig show and checked out some of the exhibits at the fair. The kids really wanted to ride the skyfari so we did that too. It was a little warmer that day than we expected but we still had fun! We’ll definitely be going back.
My skyfari riding partner…he’s pretty cute:)
There was a fun firefighter training course for kids – it was fun watching the kids try to do it.
We had to stop for an ice cream break.
Ashton was so excited to spend some time with his “girlfriend” Brooklyn:) She is so sweet and is really great with him and Jayde – Ashton just thinks she’s the best thing ever and Jayde really looks up to her. She really is a great role model!
Danika loved spending time with her friends – it made the day that much more fun!
Ashton may have had too much fun at the fair, so he spent Labor Day on the couch coughing all day – I think it was a combination of a cold and allergies, but the poor kid was just miserable all day! I felt horrible for him!
The girls got to do a cheer camp at school and we got to watch them cheer at the high school football game.
Jayde started volleyball this year, and her team had their first game. She did great and their team won!
We’ve been canning lots of salsa with our garden tomatoes. We planted just 2 tomato plants, and it’s crazy the number of tomatoes we have. I think we’ve canned 20+ jars of salsa and there is still a ton of tomatoes still growing.
We had a fun Friday night trip to Costco. I told the kids they could try as many samples from the sample stands that they could find, but unfortunately on a Friday night the options were limited. Ashton did find a stand with kombucha and was excited to drink it – Grandma Sandy would be proud:)
We got to pick the pumpkins from our garden this weekend. We didn’t really know if any would grow this year because of some spray we put in the garden last year, so we just planted some leftover seeds from my mother-in-law. Some of the plants died (not sure if it was due to soil or old seeds), but we still ended up with quite a few pumpkins. We don’t have quite the variety as we usually do, but now that we know they will grow, next year we will plan it out a little better and plant a better variety. We were still excited to decorate with all the pumpkins!
That’s our life lately in a nutshell – at least with the pictures I have. We’ve done a lot of other fun things but apparently I was having too much fun to take pictures:)
