The Denver Aquarium….again

Are you tired of reading about the Denver Aquarium yet? I haven’t written about it for over year, but this is at least my third post about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ While my brothers were here they desperately wanted to go to the aquarium.

Watching the otters play.(the girl in pink is not one of mine!)

Sharks!

After the sharks I made them all go watch the mermaid show. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is them waiting for the show to start. I was told later that it was kinda cool to watch, but they would rather see the mermaids swim with the sharks (a.k.a swimming away from hungry sharks).

On our way out Lincoln noticed this shark was the same one that was on his mug that he bought at the gift shop. So we had to take a picture!

I believe all of my siblings have made it to the aquarium except for Luke. I guess Uncle Luke and Aunt Blessing will have to come visit soon. ๐Ÿ˜€

The last day of fall

It’s the calm before the storm. We reached almost 70 degrees today. But the cold and snow are coming this week. So today was the last day of fall and I thought a trip to the park would be fun. It was beautiful!

Running races (James has quite a bad attitude towards losing. We need to work on that)

As the sun set the cold started coming and the kids feet were wet so we had to go home sooner than I wanted. But not before snapping this picture. Check out that sunset behind them!

When we got home I told the kids that we needed to clean up the back yard because it was probably going to snow tomorrow. James said, “Snow? I love snow!” At least someone is happy about it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Penners and a Pumpkin Patch!

I have been wanting to go to a pumpkin patch since last fall. My news feed on facebook is full of my friends taking their little ones to pumpkin patches. It is the thing to do in the fall if you have little kids. At the end of Oct we finally went to one. I. was. so. excited! James was excited too. I quickly figured out that there is much more than just pumpkin pickingย  going on at a pumpkin patch.

First we went down the 80 foot slide. James showed no fear at all and promptly went down by himself.

There was a maze:

They had a big hay bale pyramid. The hay smelled so good, and I’m not even a farm girl!

Launching little pumpkins. James really enjoyed this. Gideon enjoyed collecting them after shooting them.

Family picture. I highly recommend taking all pictures before you have been at the patch for 2+ hours in 80 degree weather. Your children will be hot and tired and will NOT want a lot of pictures taken. If we go again I would take all the pumpkin patch and family pictures first!
