Zoo Boo and more....

Oh Fall Break!!! It was a great long weekend. It was my fall break so I had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off. I got to have a lot of fun with the boys. It made me sad thinking of all the fun things we did last year. We went to a bounce house place on my own (never again!!). The twins wanted to go wherever Eli did and he is doing things way too big for them so I had the joy of either making them real mad or carrying both of them up. Needless to say I was very sweaty!! We enjoyed a couple of parks. We got to meet our friends Shannon and her boys Conner and Ben at one on a beautiful day. Conner got to experience the twins and their moodiness!! It was great to get outside and play though.

We then went to Zoo Boo with Grandma McIntyre. Eli is Cat in the Hat and the twins are Thing 1 and Thing 2. We were the hit of the zoo. It was hysterical how many people made comments about the boys. They did look very cute though. Andrew decided to really live up to his costume. He was running around like a mad man. The weather actually turned out perfect and there was not too big of crowd so they could run around. At one time he tried climbing into the shark pool he was sooooo excited. It really got them all excited for halloween and candy. Let me tell you the twins are loving the candy. We are really going to have the watch them.

We then went to our friend's house, Andy, to carve pumpkins. This is the twins first time carving. They liked touching it but after five minutes I found myself alone carving.

It was a great fall break and I really enjoyed spending time with the boys as they are getting so much bigger!! I can not wait for halloween, we will have many more pictures next week. Below are a few from this week.

Andrew was my faithful helper who stayed by myside, even if it meant putting all the stuff I had scooped out back in!!

Eli and Caleb ( I think, it was really hard to tell them apart in the costumes) at the shark pool trying to pet the sharks.

The three of them getting ready to head into the zoo. Caleb was thing 2 and Andrew thing 1 and we all know who is cat in the hat.

Fall Fun

Our cousin McKenzie came to visit with her mom and dad this weekend. We have enjoyed a lot of play time together. We also visited an orchard where we went on a hay ride to pick out pumpkins. We also got to jump in jump houses, pick out apples, get balloon spiders made, and enjoy kettle corn. We had a great time with the McIntyre side, Grandma and Grandpa also visited. Eli just enjoyed having someone to play with besides his brothers bothering him. The twins also enjoyed have Kenzie help them with things. She seemed a lot more willing to help and play with them then Eli.

The twins have been doing much better recently. Not as much temper tantrums, they seem to be passed the pain with their teeth for now as well. Eli continues to become a big boy. He went to his first birthday party where we did not stay with him. It was one of his friends from day care. It felt weird just dropping him off and picking him up later.

Attached are pictures from the weekend with the Mussers and Grandma and Grandpa McIntyre.
