The weekend

Kids finished their soccer with the YMCA, and got some very special medals!

Sarah finally played more than a few minutes in a game, that is an accomplishment for her!
Jakob rocked his soccer game, had lots of shots on goal and played some EXCELLENT defense. He has such speed and determination. He had parents on the other team cheering him on for his speed and defense skills!

Today, we went to the pumpkin patch - it is 45 minutes from us but it took us over 2 hours to get there, apparently it is the busiest weekend of the year to go there! Won't make that mistake again. Needless to say, the kids did not want to turn around once we were 1 hour into the drive. So we tried to make the best of it - but it was about 90 degrees and past Sarah's nap time, so it was umm,.....DIFFICULT!
At least the kids had a favorite part of it - for Jakob is was the shaved ice and for Sarah is was the horse/carriage ride. I guess I would have to say my favorite part is the hunt for the pumpkin, it was a short one b/c it was so hot and it was quite picked over but it's still my favorite part. I think for Mark, his favorite part was sitting in the shade with a cold shaved ice, probably would've liked a beer instead, he did work hard hauling our pumpkins around!! I haven't taken a pic of the pumpkins we picked out but we have a "family" pumpkin that is 35lbs, it's our biggest one yet! Jakob and Sarah picked out some other interesting little ones for Nana&Papa, Grandma Kathy and for GG Willy.

Mark hauling the load!
Sarah's found one!
Jakob too
One of the "Big Mac's" as they call them in this field.
