Carnival Fun

I just love the fall- cooler weather and school carnivals. We just couldn't resist visiting this local school carnival. The boys had so much fun riding on the kiddie rides, and they even let us join them on a few. We loved every minute of it as we watched the boys faces express their joy and delight.
The boys blasting the bad guys. Can't you just hear Joshua Stephen's sound effects.
Caleb wouldn't stay buckled into his seat belt so Daddy decided to join them for the ride.
After it got dark, Mommy got to take the boys for a ride also.
My little space rangers did a great job keeping me safe on the ride.
Joshua Stephen got to go on some fun rides with one of his favorite friends Alex.
My Big boy loving every minute of the swing ride (to my surprise).
And of course, I had to take in a thrill ride with one of my favorite friends Katie. It was so fun to do the carnival with their fun family. Our boys just love each other.
Way up high on the ferris wheel we go to see all the lights and sights the carnival had to offer.
What Fun!!!

Vacuum Cleaner Lovin'

Well, I guess this is what happens when you let Dad help with the vacuuming- the kids a little vacuum lovin'. But don't you know Caleb loved every minute of it- he's obsessed with vacuums.

Scavenger Hunt

Last weekend we went on a fun scavenger hunt through Longview Farm park (as part of their fall festival).
Joshua Stephen and Daddy had so much fun finding all of the natural treasures that made up our scavenger hunt list.
X marks the spot.
Caleb and I had fun bringing up the rear. We stayed close behind the big boys and made sure they didn't miss anything along the way.
There is always time for some Daddy lovin' when you're on a big explore.
Daddy and Joshua Stephen loving each other and the Great Outdoors.
After our scavenger hunt the boys enjoyed a little time at the playground. Our Caleb is such an adventurer! He's always ready to tackle any piece of playground equipment you put in front of him.
Caleb in a bubble. Oh what fun!

A Box

Peek-a-boo!
Who knew a box could be so much fun? Little ones of course.
Dawson left this big box in the living room (while he was assembling the tree stand that came inside of it) and it didn't take the boys long to find it and make it into a fort.
Joshua Stephen had so much fun showing all of his little animal friends their new home.
One box = Hours of entertainment for two boys

My Mommy

It was such a treat to have my Mommy come and visit us! We had so much fun getting to love on our MiMi.
Mom thanks for coming to visit us and for spoiling me and my boys. You're the Best! I love you with all of my heart!!!

Little Chimps

While we were at the zoo with MiMi the boys got to visit the chimpanzees up close and personal.
The boys had so much fun getting to have a little one on one time with the chimps.
Here the chimpanzees are grooming one another. What are brothers for?
I think Joshua Stephen and this chimpanzee may have a connection (or at least a little eye connection).

The Zoo with MiMi

We had beautiful weather while MiMi was here so we decided to take a trip to the zoo.
We enjoyed our first train ride around the Saint Louis Zoo.
MiMi treated us to cotton candy, which was yummy and so much fun!
We got to see lots of animals- like the giraffes and gazelles.

Caleb- could he be any cuter?
Saying Hello to a monkey.
And of course we just had to see the elephants.

Krispy Kreme

Joshua Stephen and MiMi have a Krispy Kreme connection. During their "snuggle buggle" time MiMi promised Joshua Stephen that she would take him to Krispy Kreme. So what was the first thing Joshua Stephen said when we picked him up from school- "Let's go to Krispy Kreme".
Trying to decide which delicious donuts to devour.
Enjoying some donuts with MiMi.
So yummy!!!
