Here's my little fashionista passing out candy to our neighborhood trick-or-treaters:

No Cracker for You!

Porter was sick today and unable to go to school, so he drew this picture while he was laying in bed:

Fall Party at Chaney's

What a fun night! Brian's work hosted a fall party for all of its employees and their families at one of our favorite Bowling Green hot spots, Chaney's Dairy Barn. The kids dressed up for the occasion and enjoyed free ice cream!

King Porter and Princess Cinderella Stella

They also got to play on Chaney's air pillow for over an hour! They had it all to themselves for the first 5 minutes or so. They had a blast!

Cinderella Stella

Oh, this girl. She can melt even my cold heart!

Picture Day

It's school picture day, so Stella is in her favorite outfit!

Picture Perfect

Actually, that's a total lie. Stella is in her mom's favorite outfit. Stella had very different plans that involved sequins, glitter and fur.

Nashville Zoo

We had a fun visit at the Nashville Zoo today. The weather was absolutely fantastic, and the fresh air did our hearts some good.


I can't say that we really saw too many animals (we kindof speed-walked through the park), but we did enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Porter's Carousel Ride

Here's Porter on the carousel at the Nashville Zoo:

Fall Break Fun

While the kids are off school for fall break, we've tried to get out of the house as much as possible. Today, we headed up to Owensboro, Kentucky to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Kids in Downtown Owensboro

One of our stops was Reid's Orchard, and the kids had a wonderful time!


We walked through both a corn maze and a sunflower maze. The sunflowers were ginormous!

Dinosaur World Memento

Porter talked me into buying him a Dinosaur World memento:

Dinosaur World 2.0

The kids are on fall break, so we're trying to take as many mini (and cheap) adventures as possible.


Today we headed up to Cave City, Kentucky to visit Dinosaur World. This is our second trip to this park. We went once before on Stella's 5th birthday.


We had a lot of fun! Stella even dressed up for the occasion with a glitter dinosaur t-shirt.


Oh, these kids! They are such hams!


I took a lot of pictures while at Dinosaur World...


... much to the children's dismay!


However, if one of my children takes an egg hatching picture...


... you better believe the other must take an egg hatching picture. This is the law of siblings.


The kids also got to sift through sand looking for treasure. They both found several shark teeth that they were able to bring home. 


It was a great adventure!
