Sunday Fun Day = Vikings Football!

Sunday's are BIG BIG days at our house, especially during the months of September through the beginning of February when it is football season. Ben participates in Fantasy Football (4 leagues, a big obsessive) and the boys really enjoy watching football with daddy! Porter wakes up on Sunday's yelling FOOTBALL!!!! That is right around the time that pre-game gets turned on in our house, so we literally have football on from 8 am until 10 pm (possibly later if the game runs long).
Last Sunday night the Vikings played so we headed over to Grandma Joan's and Grandpa Rick's to watch the game. Not much football got watched by these too little rugrats, they were too excited playing and wrestling each other and everyone else to watch, but Daddy, Grandpa and Uncle Zack watched plenty :)

Bray spinning P in the chair

Grandma spinning Bray

P was done spinning and wanted to play trains instead

So Bray started wrestling Uncle Zack

Then tried to get Grandpa

Then they both got Grandma.

I think they were relieved when we packed up and headed home and they could watch the last half of the football game in peace and quiet ;)

Sibley Park

Last Saturday the boys and I headed over to Sibley Park to meet up with some friends and check out the animals, before it got too cold for them to be out. I got a few good pictures before I realized that I didn't charge my battery, like I planned to and my camera died.

I also have this in black and white and just love the innocence of the picture... Might have to enlarge and hang in the entrance way.

I love this one too! The boys love holding hands!

It was kind of nice when my camera died, it gave me a chance to just enjoy the time with them. It won't be long before baby arrives and things will be even busier and I feel like I don't get as much time with them. So for the next 6 weeks we are going to soak up every second we can!!!

Nick Universe

A couple of weekends ago we took the boys to Nick Universe for the first time! THEY HAD A BLAST!!!!! Ben had to ride on all of the rides with them because pregnant women are not allowed on the rides. We can't wait for Valleyfair next year :)

On the train

On the Carousel, a very fast Carousel.

Porter fixing Daddy's hair while waiting in line (I think the hardest part for all three of them!)

Getting ready to go on the Diego Bus Tour...

On the semi ride.

We were all exhausted after a day of fun and the boys slept the entire way home!

One more ride...

Braylon got to help Papa Todd drive the forklift once again! He was very excited to get to load it on the truck after they were done. He thought that was the coolest thing ever! Porter was there as well and had fun sitting on the forklift and watching Braylon and Papa drive it around!

P hanging out on the forklift!

Pumpkin Fest

I am playing catch up from the past month! For some reason stopped blogging but didn't stop taking pictures, so I will update briefly...

We took the boys to Pumpkin Fest and they had a blast, as usual!

P picking out his pumpkin and of course he had to pick a bumpy pumpkin and a white pumpkin to bring home!

Braylon trying to figure out what one he wanted... He also brought home a bumpy pumpkin and then picked out the biggest pumpkin he could find!

He tried to bring this one home, but we told him we couldn't bring it home it was for pictures so he was ok with getting pictures taken instead.

Then my camera memory card was full so that was all I got of the day! The boys played games, ate piza and did a pumpkin roll (Braylon won!). It was a great time!

A new addition!

I had the pleasure a while back to take some pictures for a dear friend of mine, her family welcomed a little girl at the end of July and their son had turned 2 the end of June. So I took a few pictures of everyone! I totally forgot to post these until she asked me to do 3 month pictures...

What a wonderful looking family :)

A father's love!

My fav from my session with her!

I have TONS more pictures from their session that day and I am sure will have plenty after Ms. M's 3 month session as well! They just made it too easy! Thank you again M & S for allowing me to capture your family at such a special time!
