Fall Fun

So, my work paid for us all to go to Schnepf Farms this Saturday. The kids had a lot of fun, but it was still way too hot outside! It feels like the summer never ends here. They got their faces painted, fed the animals in the petting zoo, rode a few rides, got really crabby, and then Marlee had a meltdown at the end. It was fun,a little expensive, but hey we didn't pay for it!! We didn't last to see the fireworks, but Colten got to go back with Shannon, Jarrod, Rylee, and Uncle Mike to see them later. He was totally exhausted when he got home.

Camping 2008

We went camping with Grammie, Papa, Mel, Scott, and baby Remi a few weekends ago. The kids had so much fun just being in nature and running around. It was beautiful, but a little chilly where we went. Maybe October in the mountains is a little colder than we thought!! Maybe I'm only saying that because I have been living in the Valley of the Sun for way too long now. What wimps we've become! We planned to stay the whole weekend, but when it started raining it got even colder and we decided to pack it up and head in Saturday evening. Now Colten's favorite make-believe game is to pack and go camping. We can't wait to do it again!!

This was our first family vacation, and it was blast!! Colten went for 12 to 14 hours a day, from ride to ride. Marlee was a trooper, but didn't like very many rides, and cried when any character came near her. It was so much fun, and Colten can't wait to go back!

Its Official...I'm finally a "blogger" I finally decided to join the blogging world. I love to visit my friends blogs and see how their families are doing and the things they are doing with their lives. I am very uncreative, I am a terrible journal writer, and I absolutely loathe I decided to give blogging a try to see if I can try to keep an unofficial log of our lives. I guarantee no serious creativity, and I don't even know how to load the pictures up yet...but you have to start somewhere. So tune in (not sure when), but I will try to keep adding more posts so that you can all check out the Straub family (although Stacy has forbidden me from putting personal information about him on here).
