Discovery Gateway

Andrew, Lucy, and I went to the free day at Discovery Gateway.  I thought it would be packed, but it wasn’t busy at all!  We didn’t have to wait for any of the activities, and several times we were the only ones in certain areas.  This was Andrew’s first time going, and he LOVED it!  It was so fun to watch him play and discover, but I was shocked by how timid he was.  He didn’t want to go anywhere without me, which is very unlike him, but I was glad that he included me on all of his play!

On our way home, we stopped at Grandpa Clark's office to say hello!

Kristy got us some tickets to the Aquarium last week and we had a GREAT time!
It went by way too fast, but we loved being there!

Hodgkinson Halloween Party!

My parents did their annual Halloween Party, and it was so much fun!  My mom and sister created cute Halloween menus, but you weren’t sure exactly what you were “ordering.”  The kids got to order three courses, but they had to send everything back at the end of each course.  So, for one course someone might order a pumpkin slayer, a witch’s broom, a grave digger and a mummy’s bandage, and they’d get a knife, fork, spoon, and napkin.  Then on another round they might order slimy graveyard grass, vulture vomit, sea monsters lair, and a rusty cauldron and get salad, jello, spaghetti, and dessert, but no utensils to eat it with!  It was really fun to watch!  (Andrew ordered his straight in order, and had the most success!  After dinner, the kids watched Halloween movies while the adults ate and visited!  It was a fun night!  Thanks mom and dad!

Here are our 2017 costumes!  Presenting Professor Dumbledore, Professor McGonagal, Harry Potter, Hermoine Granger, Ron Weasly, and Hedwig! 

Random Halloween

My friend, Barbie, did an AMAZING Halloween party, with INCREDIBLE food!

We had a few neighbors over for some halloween snacks and a movie.

The kids and I made Halloween pancakes!

Darin and I went to a couples costume party.  We wore a roller-coaster costume.  
Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture before our fake legs fell off.

Lake Alexander

Darin and I decided to take a load of wood up to the cabin, and while we were there, we decided to hike to Lake Alexander.  It was my first time going, and it was BEAUTIFUL!  You drive up this road that NO ONE was on, up to the top of the mountain, then you hike up and over the mountain to find this hidden lake in the middle of the mountain!  It was really fun!

Matt and Lindsay found this bunny under the deck of the cabin, and Matt took the picture!
