A weekend of memories!

We enjoyed such a fun fall weekend. After a day full of soccer games on Saturday, we headed over to my parents house for a cookout that evening. Getting together with family is always such a wonderful treat, and the kids ALWAYS have a blast with their cousins around.
 Oh, and speaking of "blast"...Brooklyn and Addy-Kate had themselves a little blast...while playing in my sisters makeup;) 
 We thought they were upstairs in the playroom playing with the toys, but when we went to check on them, we realized they were not there. After a quick search of the house...this is what we discovered!
 Yup...two sweet girls just having fun with the mascara and eyeliner. 
After cleaning up the girls (and the carpet) , we headed outside and gathered around the fire pit. We snuggled up under the stars, roasted marshmallows and made s'mores! 
Such a fun family night! 

Sunday afternoon we had a very VERY special time planned. 
  Sophie's precious birth mommy was in town for the weekend and she was spending the day with us.  
 It was such a gorgeous day that we decided it would be a shame not to spend it outdoors!
We headed to Aw Shucks--a corn maze/pumpkin patch--not too far from our home.

We actually had NEVER been to this place before, so it was a real treat for all of us!
There was so much for the kids to do and so much for them to explore. 
Everyone had the  BEST time just running around and going  from one thing to the next.
Visiting the petting zoo and feeding the sheep...
along with the pony rides were probably the BIGGEST hits of the day!
However, the big boys would definitely say shooting the REAL bow and arrow or  BB gun was the highlight for them!
It was really just the BEST.day.EVER! 
Precious memories were made and sweet time was spent with the ones we LOVE most in this world!
Words still cannot adequately express what we feel for J!
Five years ago, she gave us THE most precious gift  EVER and changed our lives forever!  I don't think we could EVER EVER EVER say THANK YOU enough for the love, sacrifice, or selflessness this took.
J...we LOVE you to the moon and back AND back again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
