The Big 3.0.

Kurt turned 30 this past Wednesday (October 3rd). I wanted to do something a little different than in years I got a few friends to meet at The Pizza Factory and surprise him. I also put together a basket of 30 things that he loves! 
 The surprise....
 He was a good sport and wore his birthday bling.
 Singing Happy Birthday.
 The group...minus a few who couldn't make it!
I love you my 30 year old stud!

The end of September....

We went for one last hoo rah on the lake a couple of weekends ago. It was FREEZING, but that didn't stop us. You can't complain when no one is on the lake and the water is glass. We took advantage of the water and brought coats and blankets to keep us warm.
 I'm glad he knows how to fix anything! I love that he's so handy! The fuses blew on the ballast bags, so he made his own so that we could fill them to surf.
We went for an eye check up on Ethan's eyes. We went about four months ago and saw a new Doctor (Our old Doc got a new job opportunity in a different state...we were so sad when he left). The new Doc measured a little more crossing then the old Doc, so she wanted to see us again four months here we are. His eyes looked great this time and he's using them well. There is a slight cross when he looks certain directions but to do another surgery would just put us at risk of messing up what the previous three surgeries did. So for now we will go twice a year and make sure he continues to use them both! My sweet boy has come a long way with his eyes and he is growing up so much!

 These two have a love/hate relationship. I'm sure all siblings do, but this was a LOVE moment. She wanted a goodbye kiss as we dropped him off at school. I LOVE it!
 And we finally got use out of our Alpine Coaster tickets. We spent last weekend in Midway with my parents and decided to meet my brother and his family to finally go down. The kids loved it, the weather was beautiful, and the colors in the mountains are amazing.
Goodbye September...hello October!

Neighborhood Block Party

I do have to say that we have the BEST neighborhood. We do so many fun things! This year was no exception. The Oliverson's threw the annual Neighborhood Block Party complete with a mechanical bull. 
We did have to sign waiver's just to ride this sweet thing....
There was tug of wars, great food, and best of all...great company! A big thanks to Joce and Andy for throwing another AWESOME party!

The beginning of September....

I've come to the conclusion that since I don't have my mom bugging me to update the blog for pictures I've completely slacked off. So the next few posts are a little catch up.

We headed to Midway over Labor Day weekend to attend the annual Swiss Days. We also headed in to Park City to ride the coaster. After waiting in line for a half hour my brother and his little boy got on and as they started up the hill lightning started, so we were all sent away and told to come back another time. Phil and Evan got DRENCHED the ride down, but at least we got tickets to come back.
Ethan was off track for three weeks so we were constantly trying to find things to do. We decided to take a tour of Taffy Town with Tanya and Bree. The kids were semi entertained (I actually thought it was really cool), but they just liked eating the taffy and the cool hair nets we got to wear.
 We had a  few more swim days at mom and dads pool before it shuts down.
 I did some canning...peaches, pears, salsa, and jalapeno jelly.
 Reese got a new hair cut. She thought she was so big sitting in this chair and so happy that it was her turn and not Ethan's.
 Reese is now trying to do everything I do. She is my girlie girl. I had just finished painting my toes and got up to put something away. When I came back she had her shoes off and her toes under the light! Smart girl!
 Went for yogurt with Grandma while dad was at Scouts.
 and ran in the fun run at the elementary school.
It was a fun filled first part of September!
