Birthday Party.

I got to go to my nieces birthday. Oaklie turned 3 this year, and I haven't seen her in a long time. 

 There was a huge bouncy house that the kids went CRAZY for!
 Food and cupcakes! 

Here is Oaklie! She is such a cute girl! And as you can see almost as big as Abagail who is 5! She was so much fun to play with. And Abagail said she has a new friend! Hopefully a friend she can see again sooner than later! 

Black Island Farms Halloween 2014.

We Love going to Black Island Farms in Syracuse! 
We go and stand in a long, long line to ride into the fields and get our pick of a pumpkin!

Here are the kids up on the hay stack!

 Driving on the tracker to get to the field! My mom, Jared, Lucas, Abagail, Brady, and Makayla (she is not seen right here) sitting in the middle. Matt, Ashley, Hatee and I sitting aroung the outside. 

It usually gets super cold. But seeing the kids have such a good time makes it worth it to me! 
And the hot chocolate afterwards was good too! 
A nice little tradition for the past couple years!

Mexico July 2014

 Being at the airport so early was tough on the kids... ( and adults).
 Abagail, Brady and my first time on an airplane, Abagail got a little nervous at first but then squealed in delight once it started to take off. 

 In the taxi van on the way to the hotel! Lots of fun.
 Abagail found half of a coconut in the ocean. Had to take it back to the room. But maid service threw it away. Which made her sad.
 Eating lunch in the snack bar. This was right before Abagail threw up. Too much junk food I think!!

 We swam and swam between the pools and ocean. We were like fish! Always had to be in the water! Helped keep us cool too!

 Kids had to have Ice Cream after every meal!
Yes even breakfast! But I said sure!
We are on vacation!!!

 We rode the bus down into town to shop and see another beach!
We visited the little shops and got some good Popsicles.

 Had to pass time for our flight home. It was delayed! 
So we played took a few pictures 
and got some food.

 Abagail and grandma playing around!

It was such a blast! It was so nice that the kids got to meet grandpa Benjamin for the first time! 
They love him and cant wait for him to be home. 
We had lots of good food, the coca cola was so much better than in the USA. It was made from real sugar!! The ocean was fun, small waves so it was easy to play in. 
It was so beautiful there. Loved it and hope to go back again one day!
