Aviation Nation

We went to Aviation Nation at Nellis Air Force Base on Saturday. The Air Force put on a huge air show to honor veterans. It was so fun and the weather was fantastic!
We had to go through the security check at the race track and then we caught a bus over to the base. Tessa did not like the bus! Then we caught the wrong bus back! Oh that took us an extra hour at least to get back to our van! But all in all we had a great time!
On the bus trip over to the base.

There were so many bounce houses. The kiddos had a ball! Tessa loved to walk around around and point at all of them! And yes, she had to bring her blanket along, lol! I really need to make her a little blanket for trips like this! Mike put her in a bounce house, but all she did was sit there. Silly girl!

We didn't get Tessa in this last shot! So sad...she was fast asleep in the stroller.
It was such a fun experience. Caleb has always told us he wants to be a cop or a soldier, so it was especially fun for him!
I know, I know Halloween is over...but I got these pictures from Jen {our family photographer, lol} and needed to add them to the blog so I can include them in my book. So bear with me, please!

Caleb as a spooky skeleton. He told us, "My mask is pretty freaky. I'll be careful not to scare the little kids." lol!

Caleb & Aubrey with their cousins Dallin & Jared.

Lukey bear with his dimples is just so adorable!

Aubrey girl was the prettiest witch!

Tessa, our little pumpkin!

We visited my family in California last year for Halloween and had a blast! So...we decided to go again this year! We left after Caleb & Aubrey got out of school. We were right out of Yuba City around midnight, lots of farm land mind you, I was just shutting my eyes when BAM! All the kiddos woke up with a start and I asked Mike what he hit! He said he thought it was a German Shepard. Now I hate dogs. I hate everything about them. But I'm not heartless! So, yeah, I just bursted out crying. It was so horrible. Well, we felt something dragging and pulled over. I was so afraid we just had a horrible mess on our hands. Um...we discovered we had another kind of mess on our hands.

What a wonderful way to start our vacation, right?!
We did have such a good time, shopping, IKEA, trunk or treat...the kids had a ball, I had a blast seeing my sisters and good friend Jen! Made me SO homesick!

I don't know who this little Alice In Wonderland is but all the kids were playing a game and she ended up on the same number Aubrey was...I just thought how cute they were!

Tessa was a little obsessed with her Aunt Val and Uncle Jerry. Oh she'd throw quite the fit if one of them wasn't holding her!

"Contained"! This little missy is the busiest little one I've had! Um...by far! She's up on the table, pulling things out off the pantry shelves, getting the pots & pans out of the cupboard, pushing buttons on the printer and my favorite...dancing around with our underwear that she pulled out of our dressers! So I'm constantly thinking about things for her to play instead of all the aforementioned!;) Lukey always has to get in on it too!

My helpers!! The other day the kiddos decided to help me out with my "to do" list!

Aubrey & Caleb had a Halloween costume parade at school. It was so fun to see all the kids dressed up! Vegas has the best weather for Halloween!

That's Lukey over on the slide! So dang cute. We had a great Halloween this year!
