A little preview....

Carnival time

The catholic church by our house is having a little carnival type deal, Carney's and all, in their parking lot this weekend. We drove by when they were setting up and Hunter was dying to go on the Ferris Wheel. So last night we decided to go check it out.

The kids had a lot of fun. Hunter and I waited in line for the Ferris Wheel while Ryan and Jacob went to go play games. Hunter waited so patiently in line, which took forever! I asked him a couple of times if he wanted to go play games but he wanted to wait. After 45 15 min we finally got on the Ferris Wheel. Hunter LOVED it! He loved being up high and then waving to Jacob and Daddy as we passed them. We must have gotten lucky because after our long wait we also had the longest ride known to man. I was done after 2 spins but Hunter wanted to keep going. Ryan said the operator dude was taking a smoke break while we went around, and around, and around. Lucky me.

We only played one game which was make the ping pong ball into a super small bowl to win a gold fish. Sad to say we didn't win any gold fish. Both boys were exhausted by the time we left and slept all night in their own beds!

"Deer" poop!

Ryan reseeded our grass this past weekend and the boys got to help him. Their job was to tip the big bags over and empty them on the grass. Ryan said they worked really well together and used teamwork (cue the theme song from Wonder Pets).

They came up to see me that night at work and my car REEKED like manure. I was then informed by both boys that they got to run around in deer poop!

They were both SO excited to tell me how they ran around and picked up the poop. I finally figured out they meant steer poop and not deer poop.

I guess Jacob fell face first into the poop and he was the main reason for stinking up my car.

Let's go do baseball!

Last weekend the weather was beautiful so we decided to get our lazy butts outside with the boys. We took them up to the high school so we could play our own version of baseball. Which basically means, Ryan and I take turns throwing pitches to each other, the boys and dog run around like maniacs, and the boys "play" baseball for all of 3 min.

Doesn't he look all sporty with the crocs? Let me tell you how GROSS Hunter's feet were after this outing...a nasty, sweaty mess!

What you don't have a psycho dog who tears around a baseball field like she's never been outside? Seriously, Indy went nuts. Poor dog doesn't get out much unless she escapes our yard. That dog loves to run.

They were practicing writing their names with the bats. Gotta keep those little minds going all the time!

A little water fun

I know it's October, but hey we live in Arizona and it's still hot! This started out with the boys using sidewalk chalk. Then they used the water bottles to sprinkle water on their drawing to see what happened. It then escalated into a full fledged water fight with the hose and everything. They were freezing (in the 98 degree heat) at the end and balked at the notion that I have them clean up their mess.

Once again you can thank us for helping out with the current drought.
