Busy Weekend

We spent the day on Friday at the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving Point. The kids had fun playing games, bouncing in the bounce houses and picking out pumpkins. They had the coolest pumpkins I've ever seen. This is Ivy lost in the sea of pumpkins trying to make a decision. My niece Camryn had a performance in the afternoon and we were pretty much spent after that.

Saturday was Rusty's work Lagoon day. It was postponed from last weekend when we got the snow and it was well worth the wait. The weather was so nice and we had a great time. Marley wanted to go on the big rides but still had fun with Ivy in the kiddie land. We did break out of kiddie land for a couple big rides like Tilt-a-whirl (yes, still standing) and we could not stop laughing! We weren't even trying to spin around and our little car was spinning out of control. The kids couldn't hold their heads up straight!

This is Marley watching the Ladybug ride drop from the sky.

I'm going to start putting out a bucket for this girl to collect! She often breaks out into song and serenades anyone who will listen. This is somewhat of a medley...mostly the Enchanted song with a few lines thrown in from Barbie~Prince and the Pauper. She definitely doesn't get those pipes from me, I'm jealous!

We had to cut it short at Lagoon and rush to an old friend's wedding. It was beautiful. My dad did the ceremony. It's always nice to hear him speak in a different to a newly married couple vs. his kids! It's touching to hear his sensitive side.

After the wedding we were rushing, once again! We had tix to the Real Salt Lake game. We stopped at Kneaders for some food and got to the stadium just a few minutes late. The game was way fun to watch ~ they are so good with their feet! My kids could have cared less about soccer but loved stomping their feet on the bleachers with their cousins. What a day!

Sunday was pumpkin carving at Grandma's house. This has turned into a fun tradition but this year we missed Brian and Casey like crazy! They are so much fun! Lisa dug through the pumpkin guts just for Brian and gathered seeds so we could send them to Baltimore. Weirdo loves pumpkin seeds. Ivy quickly lost interest so Rusty carved "Cinderella" and Marley was way more interested in playing with the cuz's so I finished "Tinkerbell". Note to self ~ check the difficulty rating before you commit to tiny detailed character carvings!

HaPpY hALloWeEn!!!
