She's a beaut

Made a trip to the tree farm today to find a tree.  We couldn't find one quite as if as last years tree, but we did find a really nice one. Should be fun putting it up next weekend.

The kids had a lot of fun picking out their pumpkins and carving them this year!  

They were all quite proud to set them out on the steps.  Carter drew his own, we thought he did a pretty good job.

She's loving this

Our neighbor girl was so kind to give Olivia this Olivia Bag - and she loved it!  She had it on all day, on the way to the bus stop and buckled in the car.

A little Cyclone Spirit

this year we got season tickets for ISU Football games.  Though we were big fans of tailgating in college, we have consistently tailgated since.  We made it to a game or two each year, but never bought season tickets.  So overall, we had lots of fun tailgating, but we need to get some cool tailgate stuff - like a tent and a generator (for our crock-pots of course) and who knows, maybe someday we will have a camper or a crazy bus.  Not likely, but there is a good chance we will be better prepared next season.  Olivia was a big fan of tailgating - an endless selections of chips, not too shabby for Olivia!  The boys, they sorta like it?  Perhaps they will grow to appreciate it.  We did make some fun memories this season and witnessed some expected silliness in the Jack Trice parking lot.

leaf Hunt

A couple weeks ago we had the perfect Sunday for a leaf hunt at Jester.  We were probably a week or two too late, but were able to find a couple bags of leaves and the kids had a great time.  The boys could do this kind of stuff all day long.  I love seeing the trees turn into beautiful, vibrant colors in the Fall, too bad it doesn't last long.  


This summer we went to Ledges to do some geocaching - basically there is a website that has coordinates for treasures hidden all around, so once you get close you start to look the item.  We had a hard time finding this one, but Dylan finally found it!  He was pretty pumped to find it!

It definitely adds a bit of excitement and adventure to a nature hike.  And of course the kids loved playing in the water.
