Pumpkin Patch

Everyday on our way home from school we drive past the Pick of the Patch Pumpkin Patch.  The kids ask everyday when we are going to go there.  It is full of bouncy houses, a HUGE tiger slide, and an inflatable obstical course with a huge dinosaur on it.  Who wouldn't want to go there.  Haha!

Last week we told the kids that we would go today and they have been looking forward to it all week.  Michelle has been telling us that Lincoln talks about it everyday.  And everyday Austin asks if we are going "this day".

They had a blast!  They LOVED the tiger slide, it took Austin a bit to find the courage to go down it but he did.  They also enjoyed the obstical course,  Austin wasn't sure about the part where you have to "squeeze through" but with some coaxing from Lincoln he made it through.

We had a great time!  These are the pictures from my phone.  I will have to take a peek at the ones on my camera.

On the mend.

Payton has been on antibiotics for 24 hours now and boy do antibiotics make a difference.  She is feeling so much better.  Thank goodness!

She took a nice long bath this morning.  Her rash still looks pretty bad and is pretty itchy.  We love Benadryl!  So thankful she is on the road to recovery.

Strep with a side of Scarlet Fever

Payton has been home sick all week with a low fever and a sore throat.  Poor thing.

Last night she developed a little rash on her chest and back.  Then this morning while we were waiting in the waiting room to get my blood drawn her rash started spreading and within an hour covered her whole body.  

Fortunately, the doctor was able get her in quickly.  It turns out Payton has Strep Throat AND Scarlet Fever!  Yikes!

So grateful that she can be treated with antibiotics and that the doctor predicts she will be back to normal very soon.

Love our little girl.

Spider Hat

I just love these spider hats, I wish I would have kept Payton and Lincoln's from when they were going to Busy Bees Preschool.  Maybe I can track down the pictures for a comparison.  So cute!

Austin Strikes Again

Austin decided to try standing on a ball and fell face first into a table.  OUCH!

The good news is that he didn't knock a tooth out and that he didn't break a tooth.  The bad news is that his lip wasn't huge and scraped up meaning that the force of the fall went full on to his gums.  Now we are in a waiting game, will his teeth stay white and normal or will they turn dark?  If they turn dark the Dentist recommended root canals.  Yikes!

I am hoping they just stay white.  :o)

Halloween Decorations

Halloween is right around the corner and the kids were so excited to decorate. 

Lincoln insisted on buying a bag of spider webs and spiders and then Austin insisted on another bag of spiders.  Haha!  We decided to put all of that fun stuff together with Lincoln's old spider costume to spookify our entry.

The kids had a blast throwing spiders into the webbing and trying to get them to stick.  There ended up being a handful spider hanging from a single thread.

Lion King

At the beginning of the summer Payton heard an advertisement for Lion King being performed in San Jose.  It was then she started begging for us to go.  Which led to Lincoln begging.  Which then led to Austin begging.

In true Kimberly fashion, I procrastinated buying the tickets until the week before the last weekend.  Guh!  I think the internet actually laughed at me when I entered that I was looking for 5 seats all together.  It turned out that there was only one show with seats all together and the seats were EXPENSIVE.  Dave and I decided to go ahead and get the tickets.

The seats were awesome!  We had 2nd row seats, when the giraffes bent forward they were right in front of us and when the animals walked down the aisles we were right there!  The kids LOVED the show.  I am so glad we were able to go and spend that time together as a family.  It was great!

Austin has a friend!

Austin had a play date today with his buddy Everett.  They talked and played the entire time.  It was so cute!

A Day of Lasts

Today was Payton and Lincoln's last day of school and the ACS Carnival.  What a fun way to end the school year!

There were lots of carnival games, face painting, a balloon person, and karaoke.  Plus popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy.  Can you say sugar coma?  The kids had a blast!

In case you were wondering about Lincoln's choice in face paint, he was either Olaf or the snow monster depending on when you asked.  Haha!

I can't believe the year is over.  I can't believe that Payton will be in 2nd grade and that Lincoln will be in Kindergarten.  Crazy! 

Lincoln and Payton both had such wonderful teachers.  Ms. Gomes was wonderful with Payton and Mrs. Lasher and Ms. Day were a perfect combo for Lincoln.  I feel so blessed to be able to send them to Almaden Country School. 

Today was also the last day of soccer.  Lincoln is super sad because he loves to play, Payton is thrilled because she doesn't like to play, and Austin is really indifferent about the whole thing, I think he actually loves it but his class was the last of all of them and he was always tired by the time his class started.  Haha!

Cohasset House Progress

This past weekend we moved from our old house to our new house.  I wish I could say that we were able to move seamlessly into our new home, however the remodeling to our new house is not yet complete.  So we moved our things into the garage and bedrooms and moved ourselves into Hotel Ahlgren. 

Here are some pictures of the progress that has been made.
