Sea World and our awesome God!

This year we got some Sea World passes. Here is Micah and daddy in the sky buckets which are free now...awesome! I love going to Sea World...these creatures are so beautiful. But there was one the other day that just made me laugh. It was the was one huge mass of blubber, with really silly looking feet flippers, enormous 2 front teeth and really long whiskers. He plopped himself out of the water and scooted his massive weight at about .0001 mph to get in the shade. Seeing these amazing creatures reminds me that we serve one creative awesome God. I love seeing His beauty in creation. Thank you Lord for sea is a joy to watch them and see your beauty!

Back to blogging

Just recently I was having a conversation with a friend who wanted to start blogging again. We both agreed that it seems like blogging has died a bit and FB has taken over. Well, I think I would like to, like her as well get back to blogging again. I want to use it as a means to share about our family, life and the most important person in my life Jesus Christ.

We went to "Bates Nut Farm" recently to visit the Pumpkin Patch.
We did a maze, tractor ride, petting zoo and I came home with almost a pound of fudge that I have been snacking on for the past week :) Im just getting ready for the holidays a little early...I couldn't wait :)

On Halloween we pretty much set up camp out front with a bon fire, marshmallows, pizza and candy to pass out to all the trick or treaters. Micah had so much fun...he has been asking to roast marshmallows for the past 2 months. It was fun...we ended up just hanging out with a couple of our neighbors out front since the numbers of trick or treaters was pretty low.

For the past couple of weeks Shane has been doing a lot in the yard to prepare it for some grass...I am so excited! Micah and Abby love spending time with dad in the yard as you can see.

Micah and daddy love going to the high school football games. Micah loves them and even cheers on the players. Abby and I usually have a girls night in the nice warm house :)

Mondays are usually Shane's full day off. I love it because we usually have a slow morning and I have time to make us all some banana pancakes...yummy!

New York

For my 30th birthday this year I got blessed with an amazing trip to New York City with my mom, sister and good friend Erin who lives in Philadelphia and have known since I was 6 joined us for a couple days as well. Some of our adventures included a show off Broadway "West Side Stories," a tour of upper Manhattan, the Metropolitan Museum of art, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Empire State Building, and really yummy pizza, pastrami, pasta and gelato. The shopping was awesome, especially the street some great deals. Our rooms were super nice at the Westin and I couldn't wait to get in my comfy plush bed each night. I need to thank my sister for planning and navigating our whole trip, we would have been so lost without her. Thank you mom and sissy for such an awesome gift...we made so many great memories on this trip and I will cherish them forever. I praise God for each one of you and am so thankful for you and this time we had together. Love you!

The Blueberry Farm

This morning we went to the Temecula Bluberry Farm with my MOPS group. Micah did such a great job and I kept reminding him to pick the purple ones and not the green ones...we did not get one green in the whole bunch :) He even washed them when we got home...and ate plenty...he loves blueberries! We had such a fun morning...we will definitely do this again.

The Dairy Farm

On Friday we went to the local dairy farm with my MOPS group. I love it...Shane's schedule is so flexible he has made it on a couple of our field trips...Micah especially loves having daddy along :) We got to feed the cows...their tongues were surprisingly very long. At the end of the tour we got to enjoy some cookies at chocolate milk....which really tasted like a milk shake....thank you cows!
