The kids have been dying to go fishing and even though it was pretty cold we went anyways.  It rained on us a little bit but the kids had a blast.  We had to throw a couple of pine cones to scare away the geese.  I am just glad that as kids practiced casting they didn't throw their fishing pole into the lake. 

Sorry, kinda windy...

More Geese

Geese on Thanksgiving .  We go out one day and most of the gees are gone and then a few hours later a buch of new ones come in.

 Geese today.  There are a bunch on the shore on the bottom left that are hard to see.

Happy Halloween

We had a great October.  Moses wanted to make a robot so this is what he created. 

We carved some amazing jack-o-lanterns.

I am a BYU Fan clearly it is easy to see and yes, Lisa is wearing some leather pants that she bought pre children for my birthday.

 The kidos loved their costumes.
 Moses loved his mustache.  You should see him lick the ranch off of it because he won't take it off.  Here are the kids at the truck or treat.
 Here is a great shot of Lisa and the childrens.

Albuquerque NM

We went to Albuquerque NM for the weekend to meet Moses birth brother (Marcus on right) and birth cousin (Tyler in the middle). It was awesome and a ton of fun.  The boys seemed to get along very well.  Tyler and Moses seemed to be a little shy at first but that was for only 3 minutes. So this is when they met.  
 The morning they met.
  We didn't do much except swim so the kids were super happy.
 Mose and Tyler
 Marcus on left, Moses and Tyler on right
 Ava thought that it was awesome to do cannon ballz
 Ava and Tatey
 They are all about the same height.
 I loved Marcus' face that kid is hilarious.
 So Marcus and Tyler have 2 big sisters Bella on the Left and Emma on the right.  Bella took care of Tate in the pool which was awesome and Moses has a new girlie friend named Emma.
 Whoop Whoop
 Marcus and Moses with their hot chocolates.


Lisa and I were talking about how it is super nice to look out and see the lake out back.  We both thought that it was quite soothing to look out and see the glistening water.


Well I decided the kids needed a playset.  So I ordered this playset off of Lowes website.Then I had to customize the bottom for a sand box.  It turned out great and the kids love it.
