Okay, so they aren't really that scary, but they sure are cute! Lenae was a Medieval Queen this year, and Ryan was Thomas the Tank. The weather was great for Trick-or-Treating! We went out around 6:30 and it was nice and crisp, but not too cold, and the wind had died down from earlier in the day. This was the first year that Ryan really knew what was going on, and boy did he have a great time! Lenae showed him how to say "trick or treat" and he layed on the charm! He was "choo-choo"ing at everyone when they passed us. And he figured out a way to get double treats...(Kerry must have taught him this, I take NO responsibility!). As the people would hand him candy into his bucket, he would reach in the bowl with the other hand and take more. I was so embarrassed! Anyway, we had a great time, Lenae looked beautiful and we have WAY too much candy in our house right now!

We loaded up the kids and took them to the Sunny Side Pumpkin Patch this afternoon. We were looking for something to do this weekend, and since we've never taken the kids to a patch before, we thought it sounded like fun. Ryan had a ball playing in the corn box with the little tractors and trailers, and Lenae enjoyed the horse tire swings. They both had fun in the haybale maze and seeing the farm animals. Dad and Lenae tried out their aim with the gourd sling-shot, and we all went on the hayrack ride around the pumpkin patch. Afterwards we took the kids out into the patch in a wagon and picked us out 4 pumpkins. It was a lot of fun and we'll definitely have to go back next fall!

Kerry and I took the kids on a road trip this past weekend to Kansas City. We went to the Renaissance Festival (which was a lot of fun, but REALLY REALLY hot and humid) and met up with Lenae's friend and her parents. We walked around and let the kids play some games, took in a few side shows and looked at the crafts that were for sale. We would have probably stayed longer, but with the heat, cranky kids and Kerry's knee hurting from walking on the uneven ground, we decided go find a place to relax.
A teacher from school had told me about a restaurant that her kids really enjoyed, and so we thought we'd try it out. It's called "Fritz's RailRoad Restaurant". It's a hamburger joint that serves your food by train. We knew Ryan would be in heaven, and we figured Lenae would have just as much fun. However, Kerry and I enjoyed it just as much as the kids!
This coming weekend we are getting our family photos taken by a local photographer. I hope the weather holds out, as we are supposed to have an outdoor session. When we get them done, I'll post some. I'm looking forward to having some new ones of the family. Until then....................
