Benjamin and I had fun making "artic ice cream" together for school (he was doing a lesson on following directions). He did great and in just a few minutes we had mixed and shaken a few ingredients into ice cream!
The fall leaves continued to be beautiful, so we enjoyed another hike.
Anna is looking so much older lately. She is such a sweet girl and I'm very proud to be her Momma!
Daddy and his girls.
Brothers! (I didn't even realize they both had camo pants until I saw this picture)
Go Eva, go!
Beautiful scenery with my beautiful babies!
Momma's turn to go on a hike with Evie.
The kids had a grand time on the playground!
They especially enjoyed this tire swing!
We had amazing weather this day and so we made the most of it and played and played some more!
Collin LOVES his leaf blower!
Benjamin's absolute favorite thing to do right now is riding his bike!
Everyone had a turn helping rake the leaves.
Then they took turns burying each other.
After they had their fill of that, they decided to sweep the leaf pile onto the sidewalk so they could ride their bikes through it.
That was a big hit, especially with Anna and Collin who had to get a head start because of their training wheels to be able to make it through all the leaves. They didn't grasp the concept of just a small head start and instead would ride all the way to the end of our road and get themselves really going!
Anna went through time after time after time. The boys took over sweeping the leaves back into a big pile for her.
Eva finally woke up and joined the fun.
This was her first time being stable enough to walk on the sidewalk by herself and it was incredibly adorable watching her toddle up and down the sidewalk!
With a leaf in each hand of course.
She took a turn raking too.
We let Collin stay up from his nap since the weather was so nice and just let him play all day. When we finally came back in, he ended up falling asleep like this! I covered him up and he took quite a good nap....face down in a pillow...in the middle of the living room!
