Well we went to Papa's farm to do a little shooting among other things, and it started to snow. Like that was going to stop us from shooting my AK-47 for the first time. It was actually really neat to shoot it in the snow.
We went to the farm with Nick's friend from school (and his 3 sons) and some friends from Japan. We had a fun day of four-wheeling, shooting, horseback riding, etc planned.... But alas, it totally RAINED.....
And then it HAILED.....
But it didn't stop us from having fun! We rode four wheelers... watched some elk be inseminated (don't ask!)... shot some guns... saw horses, cows and other animals... and most of all, tried to keep warm and dry.

We toured Fire Station Number eight with friends and family.... Sean had the most fun of all. He asked a million questions and even told the EMTs that they drive "dead people" around (I just kinda looked away like, "don't look at me, he's not my kid"). All of the kids had so much fun! We were almost finished with our tour, when they got a call and they had to leave the building with their sirens wailing! Such an exciting day for my three guys. Nick also had an exciting day, but you'll have to ask him about it!

playing with each other ... cuddling with each other ... being together as a family ...
i love the down time with one another
(although, Mason has managed to draw all over himself with a highlighter, pull out a library tape and totally destroy it, knock down the DVDs several times, throw pancakes and cupcakes all over the kitchen, poop up his back, hit his brother with a yard stick.... that's all I can think of right now....)
anyone want an 18-month old?

After(ahhhh My nice little church boys)
Today, Sean gave a talk in Primary, Cooper gave the prayer and a scripture (Cooper's favorite scripture is where Samuel the Lamanite is on the wall and people are shooting arrows at him, but because he was a prophet of God, he wasn't hit,). Mommy played the piano horribly in Relief Society (I practiced my brains out and could play the hymns well, that's until the nerves set in and my fingers fumbled all over the place, not to mention, I forgot my glasses)...Daddy made sure the program was copied in time to hand out before church... and he hung out in the halls with Mason... today was Mason's very LAST Sunday putting us out.... he starts nursery next week!!!!
We are home now on this quiet Sunday afternoon. We are ready for NAPS, ready for Mason to go to nursery, ready for another week and ready for the world and all it's challenges.
::tangent:: And mommy is anticipating the onslaught of fall.
the crispness in the air
the apples and vegetables
the excuses to make soup and bread and cookies.... and anything that will warm our kitchen
the goblins, pumpkins, and time for make-believe (not that we don't like our real world, but being Batman or Spiderman for a few hours definitely has it's perks, ask any little boy)
