Stirring and stirring and stirring my brew

Gammie took us all to witches night out at Gardner Village. It was so fun to see all of the Halloween displays and all the women that really got into dressing up like witches. It was comical to say the least. My favorite was the 5 year old little girl dressed up like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz - you know, because she killed the wicked witch of the west. Hilarious.

All in all, it was wonderful to be together as cousins. I got to ride with Isaac and Ila in my back seat. On the way to Gardner Village, I got stuck in the middle of the intersection on a red light turn so I kept going to get out of the intersection. From the back seat, I hear Ila, "Tine! Orange means stop!" What a cutie. We gathered for soup bowls for the adults and unfortunately, the hotdogs for the kids tasted disgusting. I will try to listen when my children tell me their food is gross, or at least take a bite for them and see if it is.

Gammie even picked out a treat for everyone. Don't worry, Johnny boy did not eat his treat.

The Zoo Keeper

We went on a cousins excursion to Kangaroo Zoo last night. It is the ultimate kid play place. You run around, have fun in the bounce house, make new friends, get worn out, pick up a snack for a reasonable price and then go home.

Johnny has learned to stand up on his own and he waves and says bye. Like whenever we walk out of my bedroom, where we hang out together working on homework, he waves and says, "Bye!"

Lulu bug, Nigel and Johnny enjoyed their special play area. I'm not thinking about the fact that hundreds of 2 year old and unders have played on, wiped their noses on, possible licking going on, and touched those toys. I hope Kangaroo Zoo gives them the occasional wipe down.

Nigel is so generous with his hugs. If you have ever been the lucky recipient, you know he genuinely means I love you with every hug. Johnny looks like he thinks he's getting pick-pocketed, but I assured him that nothing sketchy was going on.

Country boys and girls getting down on the farm

Monday night was spent up in Heber, UT on our friends' vacation property at Wolf Creek. They go up there to get away, ride four wheelers, motorbikes, arctic cats, horses, and hang out in their yurt that they built from a kit all by themselves. It was so fun. It's relaxing to just be out in nature and cook your food over a campfire and snuggle together because it's cold outside.

Johnny and Lance loved riding with Papa and Nana.
I even got a chance to jump on the happy trails.

We all rode on the arctic cat to look for elk. No luck, but what a fun day.

Here is Lance wearing Johnny's birthday present he gave him.
