"I'm a Little Bit of Everything... All Rolled Into One!"

50 points to the first person that can name the song title and artist from the title of this post!

Last week, one of the girls in our ward invited everyone to Peter Piper's Pizza before they opened. They took the kids on a tour of the back, and then were able to make their own pizza. What was up with Jack, though? He really wasn't interested in anything until someone mentioned making pizza.

Here's where it started getting good

"Um, WHAT are we doing here again, mom?"

The kids also got tokens for their games, and Lincoln just wanted to spend his time sitting in this little school bus. No, not on the seat, but on the floor. Kids were getting annoyed.

On Saturday, we wanted to do something fun with the kids. We got tickets to go to Schnepf Farms, where they had a carousel, hay ride, a pumpkin patch, amusement park, petting zoo, all sorts of playgrounds, a kiddie maze, a grown-up maze, and I could go on.

I think my kids are trying to tell me something in this picture. But what is it?

This little road rally cart was SO much fun! Doug and I pedaled, and we went for a little ride through the trees you see behind us. We all enjoyed this one.

Lincoln's first carnival ride, unsupervised!

Jack got to go on his very first roller coaster! It was a good one, too!

He had SO much fun, that I had to take him on it for a second time.

Lincoln finally crashed for a little while after lunch. Look at those eyelashes! What a beautiful boy.

And Jack crashed not 5 minutes after we got in the car...

While Lincoln was wide awake...

And would NOT let this slushee go for the life of him! He had a death grip on that thing.

We decided to save a couple dollars (and our backs) and just get some pumpkins at the grocery store after Schnepf Farms. We carved them on Sunday after church, since we don't have time to do family nights on Monday's with Doug getting home at 6:30.

Here's a picture of pumpkin carving from last year. Jack looks so grown up compared to this one!

He really wanted me to take a picture of him doing this pose. What a nut!

And Lincoln would NOT give Doug kisses when requested after his naps.

We turned off the lights after the sun went down to show the boys. Lincoln held onto me tighter and tighter, the closer I got to the pumpkins. Jack thought it was pretty cool, though.
