Flag Football

Gavin has been wanting to play football for the last 2-3 years and I have been extremely reluctant to let him play.
This year we decided to let him play Flag Football and OF COURSE he LOVED IT!!!

He Loved every minute of it. If he wasn't in the game he was off on the sidelines playing catch, practicing kicking, or tackling one of his team mates. Gavin is super fast, has a great arm, and can really kick the ball - in fact, he was one of the only kids on the team that could throw, catch and kick the football.

Gavin is an amazing little athlete. On this play he blocked, dodged, and outran the other team then ran the ball in for a touchdown. He is so fun to watch -always full of enthusiasm and energy. He can't sit still and he ALWAYS has football, soccer ball, baseball, or bouncy ball in his hands.

I have a feeling I am going to be watching a lot more football in the years to come.

Grandparents are the GREATEST!

Last week my mom and dad took the kids to Santaquin to the "Red Barn" for a little FALL FUN.
Nothing fancy, just a ride on a wagon pulled behind a tractor -
Destination: PUMPKIN PATCH!

Britton and Gavin immediately started searching for the BIGGEST pumpkins they could find, while Addie searched and searched for "just a little one. It was so fun to listen to them as they described what each pumpkin looked like or what it could become once it was carved or painted. They even found one that could be come a rat once it was painted and laying on its side.

Of course the day wouldn't be complete without ICE CREAM!
Blue mint, Vanilla, chocolate, Key lime pie, and Praline Pecan. Mmmmmm....Yummy!
Thanks Mom and Dad. It was a great way to spend the day with the kids.

Grandparents really are the GREATEST!
