The things kids say...

So I am still behind on the blog - shocking I know - but I figured I'd pop in and post quickly some funny things Grace has said lately. Well things that cracked us up anyway!

A few weeks ago Grace had strep and since she had a fever the day before she was not allowed at school. We had gotten a new prescription for her glasses so I figured I would take her to pick some new frames since her fever was gone. We dropped Jack off at school and headed to the eyeglass shop that I knew took our insurance since Brian & I get our glasses there to see what kind of frames they had for kids. We pulled up at 8:58 - they were supposed to open at 9. 9 came and went and they still weren't open. Grace calmly looked at me and said, "mom, I think you just need to relax. This is no big deal. We should just go to Starbucks and come back." So we did. 

This past weekend we were out to dinner and true to form Grace had to go to the bathroom in the middle of dinner. Sometimes I think she just likes to check out every restaurant bathroom. I took her to the bathroom and while hanging out doing her business she says, "mom, sometimes I like to look at my poop when I'm done. I like to see how big it is." 

Kids say the darnedest things!

Mom & Dad go Out

In October, Brian & I even got to venture out for some fun. We enjoyed ourselves at a Bronco game and went on the Stranahan's Whiskey tour for Brian's birthday with some friends. It is always nice to get out alone and keep our marriage strong and makes us more patient parents after a little break. 

Pumpkin Patch Fun

We went to a local green house to get pumpkins this year. It wasn't your traditional pumpkin patch, but it was still fun and perfect for kids our ages. We got our pumpkins for the season and had lots of fun going through the hay maze. I think we will visit this pumpkin patch for a few more years as everyone had lots of fun.

Are you ready for some football?

Iowa Trip - September 2013

In September we headed to Iowa to see the family. We thought going in September would mean it would be a bit cooler and less humid, but we were wrong! It was blazing hot, but we had lots of fun anyway. It was great to get some cousin time in and Brian took me to my first Iowa Hawkeye game. We had such a great time. Grace & Jackson had a blast playing with all of their cousins and seeing their Nana, Papa Charlie, Grandma Barb, Papa Steve and Great Grandma - among lots of other family. 

It is rough to travel with kids at this age, but they did great. Hopefully as funds are available we can visit more often. The adventures will continue!
