So my parents came out for a visit this past week (Friday-Tuesday) and the time FLEW by. I seriously felt like they were here one day. I can't even remember what we did, it went so fast. And, as always, it's hard to see them off and Maddy misses them so much when they leave. It's a bummer that I won't get to see them for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Distance stinks. What's a real bummer is that I didn't get one....yes 1...picture of them with the kids. I'm so sad about that! Augh!
Tomorrow we get to pick up the motorhome we rented and pack up our stuff. We'll probably spend the night in it (parked in front of our house) and leave early, early (4-5am) on Thursday. I can't wait!! We are off to Yosemite for 4 days with 6-8 other families and it's going to be a BLAST! I'm excited to go in the motorhome (our first trip), just be together as a family, spend time with my mother-in-law & good friends and enjoy God's beautiful creation. We've been busy getting everything together, making meals, etc. and I'm glad it's finally arrived. Kinda like the feeling you got when you were a kid waiting for Christmas to come. Take care! =)

"Come and meet the animals on the farm...."
Last night we went to our church's Fall Festival and had so much fun! They put on a little concert for the kids, have kettle corn, cotton candy, a cake walk, chili contest, "trunk or treating", hamburgers/hotdogs, "box city" (mazes made out of cardboard boxes), jumpers, and games. It's a blast and the 2 hours goes by very quickly. John and I have helped with the Trunk or Treat for the past 4 years or so, but this year he helped cook the hamburgers while I took the kids around to the activities. The trunk or treat is a section where people back their cars up together, open up their trunks and the kids go from car to car "trick or treating." There's no tricks though, the kids have to answer an age appropriate Bible question and get candy, regardless if they answer the question right or not. It's great fun and a great outreach to the community. The kids have a blast and so do the adults! Happy Fall!
