October Park Fun

I took several pictures of us playing at the park a few days ago. It was a perfect fall day! 

Dads are good at putting in ponytails. 


Nathan likes to hide and pretend he's a spy. 


We kicked around a ball. 









The kids did some swinging. 



We ran past the speed signs to see how fast we could run. Jeremy got up to 14 mph! (I snapped the picture too soon). 


Nathan got all the way up to 9 mph. 


Elizabeth got to 7 mph. 

I got up to 13 mph. 


They love the tire swing. 


Sliding into rocks.

Happy Birthday Papa Norm!



Papa Norm and Gram came down to celebrate Papa's birthday. They even brought the cupcakes with orange frosting and Halloween sprinkles! 
Singing to Papa Norm


Papa blew out his candles. 

Snuggling with Gram. Isn't Gram's shirt neat? 


Elizabeth wanted me to take a picture of all the tiny pumpkins Auntie Laura and Papa Norm grew. This wasn't even half of them, but we have a fun amount!

Chamna Chase

Here are some picture from the last race I ran a few weeks ago. It was a 6K (3.75 mile) cross country course. It was fun! I love cross country races.  I got 3rd overall for the females. 

Everyone waiting at the start. 


And we're ready to go!

There everyone goes! I'm in the purple (#8)


Here I am coming into the finish line. I was trying hard to beat the 13 year old girl behind me. 


I managed to beat her!

Lewis and Clark Expedition


Papa and Gram bought Nathan this great hat on their recent trip. Lewis and Clark wore hats like this! Here is Nathan with his adventure backpack. In his hand, you can see where he's captured a bug. He also keeps a journal in his backpack where he writes down observations about bugs and leaves he finds. It's really cute!

No Cavities!

For the first time EVER, we had two kids with no cavities!! Woohoo! These kids have deep, crazy grooves in their teeth that no toothbrush can reach. Cavities have been a big problem. For this checkup, neither child had a cavity! In a few weeks, we will seal the rest of Elizabeth's baby teeth in hopes of keeping the cavity-free train moving. 



Now, if only I could join the tree this year. I'm getting 3 filled on Monday. The dentist said I had deep grooves the toothbrush isn't reaching...gee, I wonder where the kids get it?
