Playing Catch-Up

We've had a wonderful mini vacation this past week with our family from North Dakota visiting.
Brooklyn had sooo much fun visiting and hanging out with her cousins. Michael took her for a "spin" thru the family room....






Marcus and Brooklyn had quality time over wheat thins and cereal....





We headed over to Schenpfs' Farm for the Pumpkin Fall Festival. The boys had a great time riding the rides, checking out the farm animals, running thru the corn maze and Brooklyn enjoyed the farm all from the comforts of her stroller. Maybe next year she'll be able to take in more of the farm....




We did manage to take some nice pictures of Grandpa Pike and Brooklyn at the pumpkin patch.



Yesterday we headed over to the pool/splash pad by our house to hang out for a few hours. Brooklyn got to experience her first "swim"




She enjoyed the water, but I think she may have enjoyed people watching with her daddy more....




While her cousins played in the pool and waterslides Brooklyn caught up on some sleep.....



Grandpa was only here through the weekend so we made sure to snap some good pictures of him and Brooklyn spending time together....we hope that he finally makes the move to AZ soon.



Of course the trip out here would never be complete without logging in many hours of video game playing. Rhonda and I really appreciate the boys including us in for a couple rounds of "Scene It"


While the big boys played the late night video games the kiddos took in movie night. Even Brooklyn enjoyed some good old fashion Disney flicks. I guess we better stock up on some DVD's! It was an awesome week and we were sad to see them leave this morning. We hope the nice weather and fun activities will get them all to move here sooner! Now it's life back to normal here at the Stephenson household. We're playing catch up on everything that got neglected the past week....which I was more the happy to neglect! Brooklyn is snoozing away for her late morning nap...which is slowly becoming a routine with her. I'm having a hard time actually getting up with her earlier so she can actuallly take in her late morning nap. Alot of times I'd rather just let her sleep in with me and then she'll miss that nap. Oh well....it's about training Me as much as it is her! All else is well here!
