Pumpkin Patch

We had a great time at the pumpkin patch this year, especially because we had my mom with us. She came to help us out with Samantha's tonsillectomy and we loved having her here. We decided to use this time to take a family picture. It's not professional by any means, and I can't figure out how to get my cropped version to upload to blogger, but this works.

I love my mom so much and I am so glad that she came to visit us. It is hard for us to be far away from family, but it always make our visits together wonderful. Thanks for all your help mom. Even though you don't think you helped, you really did and we love you for it. This kids already miss you tons and keep asking when we will go see you at your house!

First Family 5K

For the first time, our family did a 5K. I am not a runner by any means, but we have been jogging together as a family and it has been really fun. The 5K at the University was great and the kids had a great time, other than being cold. The got to see the Oregon duck...
And we decided it would be fun for them to start the race running before they had to sit in the stroller the rest of the time. They loved it!! The race started with a lap and a half around the track and then around campus. By the end of the lap and a half, the kids were pretty tired, and we were almost the last people in the race, but it was fun, and we were, of course, not in it it to win.

We had a great time together as a family and I am proud of myself for finishing my first 5K, in not too bad of a time.
