Twin Farms Halloween land

Last night Trent took Bailey and Nick to Twin Farms for some fall fun. We thought it was a pumpkin patch, but it turned out to be a corn maze, hayride and tons of fun at a farm, but no pumpkin patch. The kids had an absolute blast anyways and didn't get home until after 10:30.

There was a bunny hill that you could go play on. It had tons of bunnies running around that you could hold and play with.

...And a witch storyteller. They sat around a campfire while she told spooky stories.

It was fun for them to get out and have a little fun with dad before it gets too cold outside.

BSU game

For our Anniversary in August, Trent bought us Boise State football tickets. I know it's not the most romantic, but it is a BYU vs Boise State game, so I was excited. We also got extra tickets so our friends, the Belnaps, could come too.  Since it was over a month away, we had time to get a sitter and Trent was able to take the next day off work. The game started at 8pm, so we didn't get out of there until after midnight and home by 1am. Crazy night, but it was so much fun. Best date night in a long time, and a great 12th Anniversary gift.

After he bought our tickets, Trent thought that it would be fun to do a boys night with Nick at a BSU game. Nick had a great time and enjoyed the night, but he "mostly liked the food." Trent said that every half hour he wanted to go and get something else to try. The mini donuts were his favorite. I'm glad these two could have a special night together.

NICU Harvest Party

 The hospital where the babies stayed when they were tiny has a NICU Harvest Party each year. All the babies who stayed in the NICU get to see the doctors and nurses who helped them. It ios si much fun for the whole family. They have a carnival, cookie decorating, crafts, a bunch of gifts they give away and treats.

This year the babies went as a lion and a leopard. Bailey was a cat and Nick wanted to be a ghostbuster.

Paint Night

The babies and kids can be a rough crowd to be around all the time. Crying, cleaning the house, diapers, making meals and laundry can wear even the strongest mom out. Therefore mommy needs a night out every once in awhile. My best friend, Ashleigh, had her mom and friend were in town and she invited me to go to a Paint Nite with them. It was so relaxing and so much fun. I had a great time and was able to refresh a little before taking on mommy duties again!
