Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch the week before Halloween for our family home evening. The kids had fun picking out their own pumpkin and playing in the bounce house. Here is a slideshow of our night…

Kaleb’s First Pinewood Derby

A few weeks ago, Kaleb participated in his first Pinewood Derby for scouts. He decided he wanted a blue car with the Nintendo Logo on it, and white lightning bolts.

Here we are working on it…wait a minute, do you notice Kaleb is no where to be found? He seemed to only be interested in the finished product…

Finally the big event came….each scout was able to race their cars close to twenty times against different opponents and in different lanes of the track. Kaleb’s car did quite well finishing 1st most of the time, with a few 2nd place finishes.

Kaleb won the award for “Best Game Face” for his pinewood derby car.

Walking with the Dinosaurs

A couple of months ago Kaleb and I were able to go see “Walking with the Dinosaurs”, a show about the dinosaur age. They had life size robotic dinosaurs that are very realistic looking. It was pretty cool, especially since we ended up sitting on the front row. Kaleb really enjoyed the show, but was a bit fearful of hearing the T-Rex roar, but it wasn’t as bad as he thought it would be. Thanks again Grandpa for the tickets. Here are a few photos and videos…
