A little vacation time

we got a few days off last week and we traveled 1000 miles in 4 days~a lot of drive time!! but we did get out and go on a few hikes in the northern redwoods and along coast hyway 101, which were two things Michael has wanted to do for a long time now. we only have this one vaca a year so we had to squeeze alot into it!

here are a few pictures:

                           Jayena hosted a great Halloween party,

 kids and parents all enjoying the evening...
40 people were there, and all in costume! Now that's an accomplishment, since Jay's been trying to get people to do that for a few years now!

 It was pretty exciting seeing the choices, here are a few...

Our little Jaxyn was a free range chicken

A Great Fall Day

We have had some great weather for an autumn October! So much sun and because a storm is on its way, the youngest granddaughters and I went out to enjoy the day!

 Ashlynn and Jaxyn running in the crunchy leaves! 
Jaxyn is getting a bit tired....
 Ashlynn is reaching a hot cocoa break too, which is the only way to end an afternoon playing in the leaves!

Pumpkin Patch day!

Wow!  Today was so beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest, specifically, Clark County, so my daughter, Jessica, her husband Matt, their little Jaxyn, and my other two granddaughters Aaryn and Ashlynn went for a little trip to a local pumpkin patch, Joe's Place! They are quite the scary crew!!

It was quite a challenge to survey the pumpkin selection!

The girls totally enjoyed choosing our pumpkins in a 'real pumpkin patch' much like the one Linus has on Charlie Brown (my favorite show)!
Then the girls went exploring in the hay fort.
I remember making those in our barn when I was little! Some things are timeless!

Well, it was time to bring in our bounty, Ashlynn n Jaxyn had it all under control.

~Maybe Meme will help a little~

A good day had by all!!

Happy October!

We are so ready for October and to start celebrating the season of spooky fun! Our goal was to get most of the hall~o~ween decorations up this first weekend and start setting out the fun! I found decorations I've loved and lost since 2007! What a great time it was to find these again! Our pirate yard is still needing some more items, but the best is yet to be....Michael has to create it and then I will add the pictures,,,I can't wait!! I hope you will scream with delight!!
