Marin is 4!

This past Tuesday Marin turned 4! AND there were many signs that she was hitting 4....some good...some not so good...BUT we love her perky personality! Some of things she's into at 4? Pirates. Cowboys. Tea parties. Dancing. Singing. Reading her Bible. Loves being read to. Oh...and i almost forgot DINOSAURS! Which explains the cake below :) I was thankful for extra cupcakes from my sister's wedding this past weekend-perfect timing so this mama didn't have to bake (i know, shocking, right?). She celebrated with treats at preschool and then at Burger King with some friends (and more cupcakes). Yesterday I made a dinosaur cake at her request. I had found an old cake pan at an antique shop and knew with a boy i would use it. Just never thought i would with a girl ;) Don't look too closely-not my best work, but Marin loved it! She chose the head as her first piece and made sure she ate the eyes first :)
Stay tuned for a mini 4 year old photo shoot...

Pumpkin Patch

We had a gorgeous day for the pumpkin patch this past weekend. No wind. Sunny. Cool in the shade. Just perfect. We love Papa's. Just the right size for little hands and feet that grow tired!
I think Marin went down the slide over a dozen times. We had to pry her away...

Cai loved it too!

Cai picked a spot in the corn pit. He wasn't quite sure what to think of it BUT he did have fun pouring buckets of corn on Ava. I'm pretty sure we could have left him in there for hours!

Notice what's wrong in this picture? :) This girl constantly makes me laugh.

My girls would not have climbed through this long (its longer than it looks) dark tunnel, but Cai loved it! It must be crawling through the dirt that inspires him...such a boy...

Then we had a jumping contest!

And shot a few pumpkins

Picked a few pumpkins...

2012/2013....Cai looked at us like we were crazy...would NOT smile.

2012/2013...the above makes us laugh. Collin forgot to take off his sunglasses and i didn't notice. Oh well, we'll try again next year :)
