Some Weekend Fun

One of the best things about where we live is that we’re close to a variety of activities. From outdoor activities that we can do in the mountains to cultural activities. We’re also close to sporting events.

I consider my family extremely lucky to live in a town that has a university so that we can experience all it has to offer—including the sporting events.

If you’ve read the blog at any point up to now, you know that sports are a big deal in this family. The boys are often involved in one sport or another. Right now, it’s basketball. When we get the change to watch the college teams play, we take advantage.

This weekend we had the opportunity to watch the Cowboys take on Boise State. The excitement and energy that runs through the stadium is amazing. We had so much fun. I’m so glad I get to experience these things with my boys.

We had pretty good seats for the game.

The students rushed the field to celebrate the victory with the Cowboys.

What did you do this weekend?

A Halloween Giveaway

October is the time of month for ghouls, ghosts, and monsters.  And to celebrate, I'm going to give away two copies of There's a Monster in Mommy's Tummy!

Here's what you need to do: from now until Halloween (when the drawing will take place), send me a description of what the monster in  YOUR tummy looks like.  I'll pick TWO lucky winners (open to U.S. shipping only) to send a signed copy of the book.  That's it!  Easy peasy!

Here's what the monster from the book looks like:

It’s October!

The holiest of the horror months! But even better than that, CANDY is right around the corner!

I don’t know about you, but my boys love figuring out what they’re going to be for Halloween. Every time we go to the store, we have to go to the Halloween aisle and see what fun, scary, and interesting costumes are there. And they try to decide what they’re going to be.

More often than not, they’ll change their minds a million times. And I learned my lesson last year NOT to buy their costumes too early. They end up wearing them before Halloween and they get ripped. Then, I have to buy them new ones.

Not that I really mind. I think it’s a blast to watch the kids have fun and dress up to play. It was something I wished I could have done as a kid. And with the Internet, it’s so easy to get costumes for a good price.

Have you decided what you’re going to be for Halloween?

Last year’s Halloween fun.

When One Season Ends

Another begins.

My oldest finished his football season on Saturday.  It wasn't the best season, if fact, they didn't win any games, but it's all good.  He had a lot of fun and can't wait until next year.  That's what it's all about: having fun.

Now, we have a few weeks off, then basketball season starts.  Both boys get to play, and this is the first year they've played.  It should be a lot of fun.

The best part about basketball is that it's inside, so I won't have to worry about the snow.
