Here are a few highlights.
We left on Saturday the 12th to Seattle, and dropped the kids off at Telisha's parents house. The kids were great on the plane. We were very lucky.
Here's to 5 years!!!
Sidney was a girl after my own heart. She ran as fast as she could from door to door, getting as much candy as she could - she eventually wore down (I could have gone another hour, darn those kids, hehe)....Owen was begging to get in the stroller by the time we were close to home - but don't kid yourself, he was all over getting the candy too. There was no way that he was letting Sidney get it all :)
We went with a new friend from the ward, Lizzy, and trick-or-treated from her house. Much safer.
We forgot to get a picture of Tanner in his "costume" the night of Halloween, so this was actually taken a week or so after.
The bath after Halloween, so fresh and so clean, clean....
One of Owen singing his guts out....He does this in church. Some people think that he's throwing a tantrum or something during the song. haha
So it you are wondering why he took that thing so fast, we were wondering the same thing. He was riding his brakes really hard at the start, as you can see why. As we got close to the drop he was thinking, "What did I do? Why didn't I look at that first?" But it was too late. Then because he was riding the brakes so hard he was sliding, but did not want to do that. So he let off for just a second and when going back to the brakes ally hit the gas with his extra wide boots. Hence, the loud revving noises and the accelerating through the turn. Dont get me wrong, the man knows what he is doing. He has even built his own off-road vehicle from scratch (The Berry Bug). He has been off-roading his whole life. I could not believe what happened. Hence I am busting a gut at the end, and Landon looks back scared for his life. If you did not get any of that watching the first time, turn the volume way up and watch it again.
This is our one and only dirtbike picture, just at camp. All I will say is that we went down the same stuff on the bikes as we did the Jeep. CRAZY. Its a long story, but somehow I landed on a felled tree about 3 1/2 feet off the ground. CRAZY.
Overall the trip was AMAZING. I may never get to do something like that again, at least not for two whole days without any kids or obligations, just ride ride ride, laugh laugh laugh, ride ride ride. Thanks Dad and Landon for showing me a good time. Thanks Mom and Tiff for watching Owen while we were gone. THANK YOU TELISHA, for letting me go and treating me so well. I love you tons and cant wait to figure out a way to pay you back for this incredible gift.
