Pumpkin Patch

Tonight we took Maks and Kale to the Gadderts Farms Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze! It was a great time! We got there shortly before dark and Kale was ready to play, we got him a ticket to bounce on the huge trampoline, He and Erin had a great time! Then he went through the hay bale maze all by himself! There was a huge slide made out of drainage pipe that he loved as well! We played so long that we actually didn't even get to go into the pumpkin patch! Guess we will just have to go back another time!!!

Kansas State Fair

Well the Kansas State Fair has come and gone! We spent alot of time at the fair this year. I ended up buying a season pass for me to get in, the boys got in free. Maks and I went to fair at least once a day, Kale went almost everyday with me as well! Kale loved to see the animals in the petting zoo and also in the barns. He loved the rabbits and the llamas! Although mom was excited to ride the camel I could never get Kale talked into riding it! We got to go in the "Do Art" building one day and let Kale do an art project, he had a lot of fun coloring and using all the art supplies!

Maks loved to walk around and look at the lights from the rides in the evenings! Mom and Dad just loved to walk and spend time with the boys, o ya and eat all the fried foods!

Grandma and Grandpa Smith got to come down one day of the fair and walk around with everyone! Kale loved showing them all the secrets of the fair! On the way home that evening though they hit a coyote. The were on I-70 when they hit it but luckily it only damanged the front bumper and they were all fine.

Grandma and Grandpa Dreiling went to the fair with us a few times. Grandma loved running around with the kids (Kale and Marisa) in the bunny barn! Grandma also bought the kids light up toys one evening, which they both loved! Kale still sleeps with his and wakes up in the middle of the night to play with it!

Kale and Erin road the boats together! Kale got to ride the two times, once with mom and once with dad!
Maks riding in the stroller, he loved to watch everyone walking around and the lights in the evenings!

When Maks got tired of riding in the stroller dad carried him around!

Kale also loved the slide at the fair! He got to go down it a total of 5 times! 2 times with mom, 2 times with dad, and 1 time with grandpa! It was alot of fun but it sure is alot of steps to the top! This picture is was taken after Kale and dad went down for the first time!

I haven't gone back to work yet, I will go back on Oct. 5th. I am looking forward to getting back to work but I will miss my time at home with the boys!

Erin is staying busy at work, he has been getting his 40 hours in Monday-Thursday the last few weeks which makes having a 3 day weekend at home nice! I wish my job was a lienient as his! Having flex time is really nice!

Little bit of everything

Well I have been keeping very busy these past few weeks! Last weekend we had a garage sale to get rid of all extra stuff! It was a success we got rid of tons of stuff, but still need to create more space! Kale had a great time during the garage sale, the neighbors also had one so he got to play with all the kids in the driveway the entire day!

Kale has been playing with the neighbor kids more and more. Last weekend they decided to go to the zoo and take Kale along. He had a great time and was really worn out by the time they got home!

The Kansas State Fair started this week, it is bringing in lots of trucks and tractors which are Kale's favorite! We have gone each day so far, he really enjoys walking around, and so to Erin and I. Maks just seems to sleep through it! During the fair the helicopters give tours of the town and they seem to have a flight path that goes right over our house! Kale loves to yell and wave at them EVERY time they fly over!

Yesterday also marked the first Hutchinson Community College Football game. Kale loves his Dragons! He had a great time yelling at the team telling them when to throw and kick the football!

Busy Weekend

This past weekend was sure a busy one! We started our weekend on Friday by going to the park with Monica, Marisa, and Malea. Kale and Marisa had a great time chasing each other around and racing down the slide.
Maks and Malea enjoyed themselves as well! We found them some shade and they just took it easy!On Saturday afternoon we went to a wedding for a co-worker of mine. It was a beautiful wedding and we had a great time. Kale had a great time at the reception. He was dancing to the music and loved the bubbles!!!
We had to leave the reception early to go up to Grandma and Grandpa Dreiling's house for the annual Smash 'n Crash party! Every year the IT department saves their trash monitors and other tech items and they smash them with sledge hammers! It is alot of fun for the guys and helps them get out their frustrations from the past year! Here is Grandpa hitting a monitor!Kale was having a good time watching but wanted to hit something himself so dad brought him over a computer tower for him to hit with his own little hammer! Here is daddy hitting a security monitor!

Grandma also built a little table for the kids (Marisa and Kale) to hammer nails into while the big kids broke the computers. Kale loved this table and spent most of the night hammering on it! As you can see he also wore his work goggles! Those are his favorite he wears them often!Sunday we spent most of the day at home relaxing and cleaning! We are going to have a garage sale this weekend so we are trying to get through everything in the house to sell!
