Catching Up...

September flew by and October seems to be doing the same. We've enjoyed the mild weather in spite of missing the pool life. The kids and I have been enjoying some trails close to our house; we feel really blessed to be so close to so many good ones!

It's these days that I am so thankful that Ethan is home more than he's not. I love seeing his friendship with his brother and sister grow. Harper loves it when he plays with her, and of course Owen loves it when he has a buddy to wrestle.

We've been grilling out a lot too and having some fun and crazy friends over to join in on the fun.

There is a fun ice cream shop down on the square that we've probably frequented too much lately too! They have tiny cones that are perfect for little hands, and Ethan LOVES the vintage cartoons that they play on the tv.

 Owen and Harper have a typical love/hate relationship, but when they're loving each other it's really sweet. They play house together, soccer and fire station together. I've started getting asked if they're twins...thankfully Owen is completely oblivious to the fact that she might be catching him in height...

 My brother got us free VIP (yeah, baby!) tickets to the Lumineers a few weeks ago, and so we made the drive to OKC to watch them play again. We had fun getting eating great food and being SO close to the band as they played. Thanks, Jon, for the hook up!

The kids are cracking me up in the car these days. We've made several late-night trips home, and they're personalities come out on the night drive. Owen will promptly announce he's tired and going to sleep. He'll be out cold in seconds flat, and nothing can wake him up. Ethan fights it a little harder but eventually gives in. Harper, however, has had too much to say lately and will not stop talking long enough to go to sleep!

Love their little personalities! Wish we could meet up for a trail walk sometime!
