Whirl Wind of Fun in October!

In mid October we had our stake conference in Bismarck. Mike stayed behind to help a member of the ward finish the roof of his house before the snow hit (what a good guy but secretly I think he planned it to get out of stake conference ;) ). I was asked to sing a solo for the leadership session and a duet for the stake general session so I needed to go (PS throwing up what little you had been able to keep down an hour before you sing in front of the stake is can I just say the last thing I wanted to be doing). I took the girls with me and hit the road. Thank goodness for good friends like the Sheltons! I was still not doing very well health wise and my Karie was like my stand in nanny those two days. It was a lot of fun too because we took all the kids to the pumpkin patch and they had a blast.
They had set up all these cute photo areas but unfortunately this is the best I could get. Seriously Isa had been running a fever for the majority of the day so she was not feeling well and yes I probably shouldn't have had her there but well that was my lemon and this was my lemonade.
Isa and Amelia were so funny with the wagons they would climb in and ride around but if there was ever a pause in motion they were very quick to get out. They also loved pulling them around though we had a few men down along the way when they would run into someone.
There was this tree branch pretty low to the ground in the "Wobbly Woods" that you could hop on and bounce which all the kids thoughtThey had a tractor pulling wooding cars that we got to ride in all through the patch which was great for a moment of down time because the kids were truely just go go go!

There was also this wooden train for the little kids to play in and Isa and Amelia totally took advantage.
In the Hay forts there were tons of tunnels. This is Zoe coming out of one. That when you know your child was meant for the runway is when she looks like this while running, jumping and climbing yet is still 100% girl!
This is Lane and Zoe getting ready to climb up and go down the slide. It was so funny because it was so slick that they would come just shooting out!
