Happy 40th Anniversary!

 In September my parents celebrated their 40th Anniversary!  My sisters and I threw them a party.  A good family friend, Esther made this beautiful cake.  

  The Anderson family is known for loving themselves some cake!  My friend Diedra made these.  The cake pops were for all the guests to take home.  
 We went with fall center pieces.  

 My sister put together a video of their life together.  It was super special!

 Here is my dad with his brothers and sister.  His brother George is not in the picture.  

 All my sisters and my parents.

 Who could forget all the grand kids?!?!!
We filled my parents car with balloons.  My dad planned a get away after the party to Lake Geneva.  So after the party they got in their car and went off to Wisconsin.

Papa's Birthday

 It is really neat that both Avi and my dad have the same Birthday, October 10th.  We celebrated my dad's birthday shooting.  Yes, you heard me right shooting guns.  My dad now has a new hobby.  I guess it is okay now that he has son-in-laws.  Funny when all of us girls were growing up he didn't have any interest in guns!  
 Here are the men!
 At my sister and brother-in-law's apple orchard they have a nice little shooting range.  
 Here are the girls.  I didn't shoot that day.  Guns make me nervous, especially with being pregnant!
 Then we went back to my sister's house and had some cake with all the kids.  The grand kids were with a babysitter while we were at the range.  We are nothing but SAFE!

Water Park Get AWAY!

 In October, we went to Great Wolf Lodge with the Domier Family.  Here the kiddos are eating their lunches together.   

   My kids just loved the water!!!!!!  

 Surprisingly, my Ellie is not the bravest.  Which as a toddler she was.  I would find her climbing things and going down steep slides without any problem.  So Ellie stuck to the smaller slides and had a blast.  
 Anderson and Bella were super daredevils and went down this huge slide!  
 Look how tiny they are carrying their mats up to the top.  They probably went down this slide 20 times.  
 Here Anderson is coming down.  
 Then my Miss Avielle decided she could conquer this huge slide! I'm so proud of her!  I don't think I would have gone down the slide if I wasn't pregnant.  
 Here are our adorable watcher/cheerers!
 They are just getting so old!!!!!  It was nice knowing they were such good swimmers and they didn't need to be watched like a hawk.  
 Brynn and Ellie going down the slides.

 Anderson and Bella being funny together.
 Okay, here are the dads with their crazy morning hair!!!!!  
 Here we are all together!!!!  Man our families are growing like weeds!  Just think, by summer two more will be added to the group!!!!!  

 Then the Domiers gave the girls a special treat and they got some colored extensions in their hair.  


  It was the perfect get-a-way!  The kids had a blast and ask to go back soon.  Maybe next year when life will really be different with 4 children!  Yikes, it is hard for me to wrap my mind around 4 kids or maybe just starting at the infant age.
