Is this what it would be like with twins?

Dave's sister came to visit and Isabella is just 4 days older than Emily.  When Dave grabbed them both he said 'is this what it'd be like with twins?'  I have no idea but it was funny to see him with his arms full!  So cute!  It was a super great visit!

This photo above is my favorite.  Isabella is reading a book, Nolan has scored Nana's camera and is showing AJ pictures and while Auntie Sus is distracted, Emily is tying her shoelaces together.  Hysterical!

Fall Fest

Our neighboring town has a Fall Fest.  This festival is one of my favorite events all year.
Its everything you need and want for kids without the extra stuff.  There are rides, games, naughty food, live band, bon fire and fireworks at 7:15.  There are no booths selling crafts or jams or giving away 'free' estimates to updated windows.  I LOVE this festival. 
 This was the first place we put Emily on her own ride and she loved it!  I love the picture of her with her elbow hanging out of the car side at the top!
 This was back when my mom was visiting!  She had a great time too!
And while I expected Nolan to be a lot more amazed by the fireworks, I do love the photos of them seeing fireworks for the first time. Nolan thought they were too loud.  
 Emily liked them!

More from Fair Weather Acres

Seriously, this place is awesome.  The corn pit is cool!
But even more so are these tractor/bike things.  They have adjustable seats so nolan can ride it and so can Dave.  And they have little ones, like teh one you see below, notice Emily and Dave in the background. 

 They also have a corn maze but to me that seems like something for older kids, or kids that will stay with you and not run ahead and be lost forever until we have to call a helicopter to find them.  But they do have this awesome HAY maze.
 My kids clearly loved it!
This is one of my favorite fall outings!

 And there's always cornpit wrestling
 And bury the kid

Mikey's Place Run

A few weeks ago our entire family participated in a road race.  It was a lot of fun to do this as a family.  While there wasn't a double-stroller division, if there was, Dave would have placed second!  great job Dave! 
I ran with some of my running group and we had shirts made.  It was fun.  And hard.  And neat to support our community.  I think we'll do this again next year!

Happy Halloween!

Our Batman and Robin!
These guys had a LOT of fun this Halloween with their costumes and trick or treating!  Nolan seemed so excited about trick or treating this year but about 3/4 of the way around our block he declared it was time to head home. 
 Maybe it was all the dogs he encountered or he just new he had enough candy but he was done.
 My favorite part of the night?  Watching him take inventory of his candy, he sorted it based on the color of the wrappers, then he divided it another way and finally decided on which 3 he could eat.  This kid was EXCITED!
