Pumpkin patch 2009

We recently went to the pumpkin patch with my ladies Bible study group. It was kind of a rainy day, but we still have fun just being together and seeing the pumpkins and the mud. :)
Peter is all about Toy Story lately...

...and Walle!

Farmer Peter

Peter and his buddy, Jaxon - out for a day of plowing! :) (or whatever it is you do on a tractor...)

Peter is getting to be so good at holding Justin. :)

Momma's little punkin!

Momma! A TRACTOR!! (He saw that the hay rides were running.) :)

The Great Pumpkin!

All the kids! Ben, Lucy, Coen, Jaxon, Cooper, Peter and Justin. We love our friends!

Star Wars in concert!!

This weekend we had the excitement of seeing Star Wars in concert. We bought shirts for the occasion...Peter didn't go to the concert, but he got a shirt anyway. :)
Jedi Knights - guardians of peace and justice.

Outside the new Cowboy's looks like the Death Star. :) give you an idea of the GREAT seats that we had...we were so close!

While they showed clips from the movies, the live orchestra and choir performed the music. It was so cool watching some of the soloists as they played the awesome music!

In the lobby they had replicas of the characters set up for people like us to take pics...

I know this one is blurred, but I think it still looks cool. :)


More pics to give you an idea of the atmosphere in the stadium...

May the Force be with you!

Good, cheap fun!

The other night it was raining and we had to stay inside all day when Brent got home from work we were ready for an outing! So we took the boys to the pet store to walk around and look at the animals. Like the zoo only smaller. :) Peter was fascinated with all the little cages. We saw birds, guinea pigs, fish, turtles, and frogs.

Peter doing his bird call. :)

Justin was happy to ride in the cart...although I couldn't catch a smile.

showing the fish his 'funny face'...

He looks like a zoo guide giving a fish presentation... :)

My boys! Oh how I love them!

Justin is 14 weeks and 15.5 pounds! What a big boy! :)

Justin is smiling more than ever these days! He also will talk to you and coo if you really get him excited. :)

This past weekend my parents came up to see us. We planned to go to the zoo, but first we had to eat a traditional morning breakfast at Mc Donalds. As long as I can remember, my family has eaten Mc Donald's breakfast before a big day...such as the zoo, or going on vacation. Fun times! :)

Peter loves his pancakes and so does Papa Jon!

The day was so pretty for a zoo visit....nice and sunny in the morning with a crisp breeze.

The big gorilla came out of his cave to get in the photo...they are such pretty animals; our God is so creative!

The zoo is great, but being with those we love was the best part.

...even Justin was praising the Lord for His creation. :)

"Where to?"

The taming of the alligator ...

...and the kangaroos!

Peter and I both have elephant shirts that we wear to the zoo...helps to set the mood.

Feed the birds! In this little caged area the birds fly right up to your feed stick and let you hold them. Peter loves it!

Peter zonked out about 2:30, but Justin stayed wide-eyed. :)

It rained a little in the afternoon, so Mom and Dad bought us all icecream to eat while we waited for it to pass...perfect combo!

Yay! The boys (minus Justin) got to ride the train. Choo choo!
We had a great time Gama and Papa Jon! We can't wait til next time!!
