The boys and I still went and we had a lot of fun. Even though the point of the party is to carve pumpkins, we never actually carve pumpkins, because the thought of having to reach inside of a pumpkin and pull it's guts out makes my stomach turn.
Of course, KK has a lot of things to play with at her house, so the boys never get bored. They even have ducks that won't stay at the pond and continually come back to their house even when they try to make them go away.

Reed Land’s Arctic Habitat
First, Reed cracked the eggs and mixed the cake.
Next, he added blue food coloring to make the water underneath the ice. Then he put the cake in the oven.
First he made penguins from marshmallows and oreos.
Then he made polar bears.
He then made seals by smashing the end of coconut covered marshmallows and cutting them up.
Reed put icing on the cake to make the “ice”.
Reed put all of the animals, plants, and natural resources that he studied about to make this project on his cake.
Reed is proud of his arctic habitat. He shared it with his friends as a snack!

Last week for Family Day celebrations, we took the boys to Dave and Busters. Will loves to bowl. Well, at least he talks about bowling constantly.
The boys all enjoy throwing bowling balls really hard at wooden floors. We had a lot of fun.
The boys were excited that Mr. Brian and Uncle Bill joined us on our Family Day Celebrations. It was a special treat for them for sure.
For dinner we went to Chuy's. The boys love Chuy's. We like taking them to Chuy's because it is loud and we are a loud family.
Uncle Bill still has pictures on his phone from when we went to get the boys four years ago. They were very impressed to see how much they had grown since then.
After we bowled we went to the game part of Dave and Busters. It was 1/2 price games night. I bought $25 worth of credits and I was beginning to think that we would never use them up. Then Will played a game an hit the jackpot and won 500 tickets. Then I went over to another machine and hit several jackpots and won 2500 tickets. Then we hit several more big ticket wins and by the time we finally ran out of the credits we had 7700 tickets.
The boys each got to have enough tickets to get pretty decent prizes. I think that it was actually one of the best Family Day celebrations we have had. So much fun.
