The Legend Of Sleepy Howell

Took the kids to "The Legend of Sleepy Howell" tonight with the Kreiders. I think this is our 5th year in a row. Good times and lots of candy. Hayden for sure gets her rhythm from daddy... watch the video. Weather was great. Also a couple pics from last weekend when we took a trip to Kalamazoo to visit Auber.

Well this is a first since we started this Blog over 4 years ago. We went over one month without a post. We have just been having so much fun that it is hard for us to sit at a computer and upload all this stuff.

Marnie and the girls went to Milford Memories, basically an art fair. It was one beastly hot day, but they enjoyed it. The girls got their faces painted, which started something with them. Now any time they see a booth, they want their faces painted.

Over Labor day weekend, we decided to use up our free passes to the Saginaw zoo. It was supposed to be 85 and sunny all day. Boy was the weather man wrong, it was cold and drizzling rain most of the day then huge thunderstorms started just as we were leaving the zoo. The girls enjoyed milking a fake cow and trying to squirt us with the "milk", which was really water. The big thrill of the day was the riding the merry go round as we were leaving.

Mike and I enjoyed Pat and Nicoles wedding in Cleveland in September. The girls stayed with Timmy and Megan and had a great time. After we picked them up in the morning we headed to the Akron Zoo. A first for all of us. Aunt Mandy and Aunt Maggie met us there. We were all suprised on how nice the zoo was.

The next day we went to a health fair at Medina Hospital. Hayden was so excited to see SpongeBob. She gave him high fives and a big hug. Kendal wanted nothing to do with him. Both girls got their faces painted again, and they won us a free pizza and a dozen donuts. We can't complain.

Mike took the girls to Spicers Orchard one weekend I was working. He met up with the Kreiders and one of our new neighbors Eric and his family. By the pictures it looks like they had a ton of fun while I was stuck at work.

Then a few weekends ago we did our annual visit to Spicers with all the neighbors, with the kids in costumes. Hayden's costume wasn't finished yet so she wore a different one. It was nice to get together since we have moved away. They kids had a good time playing, riding horses and once again getting their faces painted. By the end of the day when we were doing pictures, lets just say just like the other years our kids didn't want to cooperate. We managed to get a few pictures with all the kids, well minus Mckynzee, she didn't want to dress up.

Last weekend Mike's parents came up to visit. They got to take the girls to a pumpkin hunt at the local metropark. This place has a man made pond which they built a tunnel under the water so you can see everything. It is really cool to look when the water isn't green.

Mike's new baby. Too bad it is already stored for the winter. The Happy Hooker will be a permanent resident at our house in the spring.
