Halloween 2014

Time to carve our pumpkins and roast some seeds!!
Brayden isn't quite old enough to carve his pumpkin, so we thought our best option was to paint his feet to make prints on his pumpkin:
Ashlyn started off Halloween morning by dressing up for school.  Her class had just finished reading Charlotte's Web and they were allowed to come to school dressed as a character from the book.  Ashlyn chose Wilbur, the pig:
After picking up Ashlyn from school, we took all 3 kids to Zane's office to trick or treat.  They got sooo much candy from there!  Then we drove through to grab some dinner, did some trick or treating in our neighborhood, passed out lots of candy, and visited with friends!
I think our Carolina Hurricanes hockey player, Anna from Frozen, and our monkey all enjoyed Halloween!!

NC State Fair 2014

It is so hard to believe that this was our 9th year at the NC State Fair!!  We decided to go on a weekday again and it wasn't crowded at all, which was great since we had a stroller with us this year.  The kids had a great time and Brayden was amazing (as usual).

We start with Smokey the Bear every year:
Zane took the older kids to visit the animals and machinery while I fed Brayden:
Bryson loved this lego design over his shoulder because it matched his shirt:
Zane was brave enough to take all 3 kids on the ferris wheel:
Picking our vegetables to trade them in for a prize!
Sleepy boy!
We did some more walking through buildings, tasting yummy samples, and visiting the kids' section before eating some lunch!
A little more walking to let our food settle before we head over to the kids' favorite spot...the rides!
Bryson absolutely loves the fast, spinning rides while these bumper cars were declared Ashlyn's favorite ride!
Another great experience at the NC State Fair!!!
