Busy weekend

This past weekend was a very busy one for us. We decided to go to the KSU game with my dad in Manhattan. So Friday after work we loaded up the car and headed for Topeka. The trip up wasn't terrible but we figured out that Maks is not a fan of the car when it is dark! We had to drive part of the way with the light on inside the car so that he wasn't scared!! Once he fell asleep we turned it off! Kale was excited to see Grandma and Grandpa and just couldn't wait to be in Topeka.

Saturday we left for the game around 9:30 AM. Erin, dad and I all went, while mom stayed home with Kale and Maks. Grandma had fun with the boys, they kept her busy! Kale really likes to help take care of his brother though so she a great helper! The KSU game didn't turn out quite how we wanted but we had a good time anyways! We got to see some friends and even Erin's boss and his son at the game. After the game we headed back to Topeka and went out to dinner at Taco Casa!! YUM YUM! We met Rock and Zach (Erin's boss and son) there, they had never been so we decided to share our love for the cheese with them!

After dinner we ran home and quickly changed and headed out to TPAC (Topeka Performing Arts Center) for Riverdance. Erin was not sure he would enjoy the show but turns out it was a lot more entertaining than he expected! The show was great, the dancers have such talent! I can't imagine how much practice it takes to be so perfect when dancing in large groups like that! Our show ended at 10:15 and we were both so tired we headed back to mom and dad's house and went straight to bed!!

Sunday we woke up and got around slowly. We decided to go and visit the Grand Opening of the newest Dillon's store in Topeka. Erin's dad and many co-workers were at the store so Kale got to see his other Grandpa and family friends while we were there! The store went all out for this opening. They had a marching band playing in the lobby, what seemed like thousands of samples in each department, the Keebler Elf was walking around, and even a dolphin ice sculpture! Kale enjoyed the new store, Maks was pooped before we were even a quarter of the way through it!

All in all we had a great weekend, but it was sure busy looking back! The next few weekends are all booked up as well! Saturday I need to be in 3 places at once and still am not sure how I am going to manage! I have class plus 2 weddings that I want to attend. Well guess I will just have to figure it out!! Cause one wedding is in Manhattan and the other hear so no way to balance!

Well better sign out for now but watch for pictures to come soon!

Kale's Birthday Party

Well I am a little late but I am finally getting a chance to update everything!!

Kale's party was a big success! Kale loved all the firetruck things and getting to see all his family in one place! He really seemed to be a bigger fan of cake this year than last! Last year we couldn't get him to play in the cake! This year he crawled up and dug into the cake before we were even ready! A good family friend of ours made him an awesome Firetruck cake! He loved showing everyone!

When it was time to open presents Kale had a great helper, his cousin Marisa really seemed to enjoy helping! Kale didn't mind having a helper at all in fact he even let her help open a few of the presents!

I will upload pictures as soon as possible!

Fall Update!

Well to say the least I am way behind on my posting! It seems every time I say I am going to sit down and update things I find a way to become side tracked.

October was a busy month for us. We all ended up becoming sick and have just been getting off our meds and feeling back up to par. Kale was treated for H1N1 although he never got tested for it. Erin ended up sick (which is never good cause he is the one in the family that always seems to stay healthy), and then I was next! We thought Maks would make it with out getting sick but he didn't. He is still finishing up his Rx but seems to be doing a lot better.

Halloween was great fun but very busy. Kale was a fireman and Maks was a monkey. Kale had a blast running around in his costume with his Axe and his fire extinguisher. We went to a few houses for trick-or-treating then ended up going to the HCC football game in the evening. Their costumes were great for the cool weather! They both stayed plenty warm!

The weather so far has been fantastic! The trees were beautiful when the leaves began to turn, they have since fallen off but now we get to have fun raking up the leaves and jumping in them!

Erin and I got to have a grown up date night on Tuesday. He bought me tickets to go and see the musical Wicked. The play was in Wichita at Century 2. It was really great to spend sometime together just the two of us. We also really enjoyed the show! Hopefully we can start making date night a more regular occurrence!

Kale's birthday is coming up this weekend! It is crazy to think he is already 2 years old! He is having a fireman themed party! It is going to be a close family party but he will have alot of fun playing with all his cousins! I had great hopes of getting his invitations made but I waited to long and now they are just simple! I made them on the computer and think they are fine but they are not exactly what I had planned! I'm sure the party will be just as great with out them!!
(sorry after posting the invitation I just saw that you can't read the writing! So here is what it says below the firetruck! Lights and sirens right on cue, can you believe Kale is turning 2!)
