weekend wrap up

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

We had another fun weekend, kicked off by a visit to the fire station with the Hops. 
The boys had a blast checking out all the cool gear and big trucks!

We grabbed some dessert at Franks in Zeeland after leaving the station.  Their "cho-cho pops" were a huge hit with the kids! We hardly heard a peep out of them, which gave us adults some nice time to chat :)

Saturday I spent the day shopping with a group of friends, we had a great time! 
At night Robb and I went to an marriage and parenting seminar put on by our church.

Sunday afternoon we had our family/maternity pictures taken, it was freezing and I was so frazzled but our amazing photographer, Kim Egedus, still captured some great pictures, here's a couple from our sneak peak.

{Insta Friday}

Friday, October 25, 2013

The last couple of weeks in Instagram pics:

being put to work even on vacation, but how could I say 'no' to that cutie!? :)

in honor of pregnancy and infant loss awareness day on Oct 15, we brought a pumpkin to Brenham's gravesite. 

play date at the library with Kinsley while the big kids were in school!

sadler didn't read a single book, but still managed to have lots of fun there!

love being pregnant again with my bestie, 10 weeks apart!

the perfect way to spend a Fall afternoon

we have names picked out, but I just can't stop looking! I have commitment issues.

Grayden got to make applesauce in school last week, he was so excited!

Robb and I playing with baby monitors on our monthly date night last weekend!

We had an amazing dinner at Mongolian BBQ.

Handsome boys before church on Sunday, Sadler is wearing Grayden's ring bearer outfit from my brother and sister in law's wedding 2 years ago!

Enjoyed a fun afternoon painting with a couple girl friends at Brush Studios on Sunday.  

Sunday night 'Harvest Party" by my parents!

Robb and I all dressed up for the annual 'Right to Life" benefit dinner. Gray took our pic, not bad for a 4 year old!

I woke up to these 2 cuties sound asleep in our bedroom, I had no idea they were in there!

I was able to go along on Grayden's class field trip to the pumpkin patch on Wednesday. We had a blast, despite the chilly air!

The boys were very entertained, walking from window to window, to watch our sprinklers being blown out by Mr. Nate, our landscaper! 

Same shirt, a year a apart :)

love getting baby freebies!

Thursday we met by friend Angie, and her son Tatum at the library for a little play date, I didn't get a single picture while we were there because my boys were total disasters there, but I did get quite the laugh when we got home and I saw these random books Grayden picked out! 

Robb treated me to a prenatal massage last night, it was so calming, even in the waiting room!

The boys had appointments for flu shots and vaccines this morning, it was rough on everyone so a Coke for me, and cookies for the boys were in order ;)

Pumpkin Fest

Friday, October 18, 2013

Our little neighboring town of Zeeland put on their annual "Pumpkin Fest" a couple weeks ago and we were able to take part in a couple of the activities. 

Thursday afternoon I took the boys to the petal tractor pull and signed Grayden up to participate! He had such a blast! 

Saturday afternoon Gray's preschool class rode in the parade. Again, he loved it! 

big wave from the back of the wagon!

And we had fun watching him!

Weekend Wrap-Up {Pumpkin Patch and Carving}

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Yup, it's Thursday, and I'm still writing about this past weekend! Last one, promise!

When we got home from Indiana on Satuday it was only 2:00 in the afternoon, so we had the whole rest of the day to enjoy at home. We decided to head to the pumpkin patch and bring a couple home to carve. 

off to search for the perfect ones!

found one!

Gray drew on the jack o lantern face for his pumpkin and we carved it out! 
so cute!

We had so much fun!

Sunday, our Sabbath day, was spent at church and relaxing at home.
