Last night was Halloween and as you can see we all dressed up. We didn't get one of Billy but he was a werewolf again this year, it was still as good as last year. It was actually so warm and pretty windy but it was a great night to be out and about. Maizy was a pro at knocking and getting that candy, even Tava got some candy because the ladies thought she was soooo cute. She really was cute. Maizy's cousin Kaiden came with us and went to all the doors with Maizy, but he liked to go a little futher than just the front door, he would buzz all the way in since he was a cute bumble bee. It was pretty funny when Crystal (his mom) had to run into the house, (far into the house) to go get him. This just wasn't one house it was all the houses, he was really cute and very scared of Billy when he put his werewolf mask on. We came back to the house to a huge party. We had a lot of our friends over to play games and hang out. We had a great time and the kids were REALLY buzzed on candy. It was a great Halloween!!
Today we went to the beach because it was finally warm enough and it was probably the last warm day for the rest of the year. We always have a good time at the beach, being able to drive along the water and enjoy everything is so much fun. We go down to Moonstone where the river goes into the ocean. It was pretty warm and the dogs love to go swimming. WE LOVE THE BEACH!!!
We went to the pumpkin patch with Maizy's preschool class. Maizy was excited all week to go, it was all she could talk about. We went on October 17, it was great. After, we went out to pizza and it was a fun night altogether.

Hiking to Blue Lake

While we were camping and hunting, My brother Jake, his wife Mel and Billy and the girls went on a hike to Blue Lake. It is a glacier lake and is so beautiful. It was a hard hike especially with two little ones and we were being eaten alive by mesquitos but it was worth the view and how much fun Maizy had. We all had a good time just skipping rocks and enjoying the day.

Camping Trip

The first week of September we went up to Washington to go on a camping/hunting trip with my family. We had a great time just hanging out by the fire, talking, playing cards, reading, hiking, and cooking great dutch oven meals. My Mom, Dad, brother Jake, his wife Mel, and my sister Kristy and her little girl Kassidy all were there. I loved it, we had so much fun, I can't wait to do it again next year. Billy didn't get anything and really didn't see much, but we all had a good time anyway. Next year he will get his shot.

Davey's Wedding

This summer Billy's cousin Davey got married in Oregon at the Mount Hood Bed and Breakfast. It was so beautiful but it was so HOT!!! All of us were dying of heat, just trying to find some shade. Christina, the bride, was beautiful. We had a lot of fun and the girls were so cute!!

Parade and Rodeo

This summer we also went to the Fortuna parade and rodeo. I haven't really been to a rodeo before and we had so much fun. The rodeo was a little slow for the kids but they always find ways to entertain themselves. I know Billy was having a great time with them, taking them to get cookies and going to the bathroom alot because it got them out of the bleachers. They got face paintings too and that was so cute. Good times!!

Back Tracking

So, I have had this blog for quite some time and I am just now trying it out. So I thought I would go back through my pictures and try to make up for some lost time. This summer has gone by so fast, I can't believe that it is fall and Halloween is our next holiday. I will start with one of the fairs that we went to this summer. I love fairs and I know that Maizy had no problem going to them!! We had so much fun not only with our family but with our friends and their cute kids too. I know Maizy loves to go places with her Friends.

Picture Day

Today we went to get the girls pictures done!!! It was tough but we made it and they turned out great!! Maizy was such a poser, anything the lady told her to do she did it and then some. She definetely adds something to what she told her to do. She was great with Tava too. Tava is such a little smiler, she was so cute!! I think this was one of the best picture session. So this is Tava at 8 months and Maizy is 2 years 10 months. I can't believe how fast time goes by. I love being a mother and I am so blessed to have these two beautiful girls as my daughters.
