Boo at the Zoo!

We did this last year and it was a lot of fun....
The boys got to trick or treat a few days early at the zoo- one more day to wear their costumes, too.
We spent the day with my friend, Sharla, and her two kiddos. The zoo was crowded but the weather was perfect. :)
After the zoo, we had an early dinner at Qdoba! Yum!

Anderson Farms visit with Grandma Sharp

Grandpa and Grandma Sharp surprised the boys! They got into town on Sunday, October 23rd.
On Monday- Grandma and I took the boys to the pumpkin patch while Daddy and Grandpa went golfing. It was such a nice day- and with SNOW in the forecast for Wednesday, we figured it would be the best day.
We love the pumpkin patch!

We went on a wagon ride, the boys (and Grandma) rode the petal cars, we went through the hay maze and corn maze, fed the animals and had lunch. Fun day at the patch, as always!

Family {photos}!

These are my favorites. Austin (being 2!) made this afternoon very, um, difficult. ;) It's okay, we'll try again next year. I really want to have a successful photo shoot in the Fall- it's my favorite time of year.

I really like this one- even with the vanilla wafer cookie in A's hand! 

Austin was ALL happy and smiles at dinner this evening, though! Go figure.
We ate at Sam's in Denver and it was soooo good! This place has been on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. 
Peyton and Brendan loved the game room and Austin was content being a goofball at the table.

 these smiley face fries are the cutest- and pretty tasty.

our new pet {hamsters}

Meet Ellie and Stella.
The boys are way psyched! :)
These little girls are SO adorable! This is going to test P and B-- these little ladies are their responsibility.

We got them each a little ball to put them in so they can run around. So cute.

Football Saturdays

I realized today as I was taking pictures at Brendan's last flag football game, that I haven't added any pictures on our blog. He has really enjoyed playing this Fall and is eager to start tackle football. I'm not sure that I am, but I have time to get used to the idea. He is really pretty good at it. He made some new friends and he really learned a lot.

These are from his last game today, 10/15.

 The whole team sprayed their hair blue! What spirit!

 Brendan's handoff- touchdown!!!
The team victory line- the team loves this part!
