Just a day at the park

In the middle of November I decided to take the kids to the park for them to have a little fun... but mostly I wanted to get some fun pictures of them. Since I moved to Phoenix I hadn't taken much time to take their pictures. It was much too hot when we moved there and then things just got crazy. I really wanted to capture them having fun and just being kids! Here they are just happy to be playing and having fun. After a while I put my camera away, we made a huge sand castle and played game where we hid rocks in the sand and had to hunt for buried treasure!!! They especially loved that game. I think they also enjoyed one on one mommy time. I sure love hanging with these kids.

Phoenix Zoo

My parents and Zak came to visit over a week ago.
We spend most of the day at the zoo, my sister and her "friend" came along with us too. I scored 6 free passes!! I can't believe the zoo is $18 per person, rip off. So we only had to pay for Rhylan's ticket, which was $9, pretty good.

This baby orangutang was so funny. He came right up to the glass and played peek-a-boo with Rhylan.

Both the kids had fun in the petting zoo, it hasn't changed much since I was little! Gracin had to make sure he touched every one of those goats. He would run from goat to goat giving each one a little pat/pet. Then he made his rounds again hugging each one. Then for his third run, he chased them!!
Rhylan took her time and brushed the "nice ones." She always saves her attention for girl animals. She usually picks a color and all the goats that color are girls and the rest are boys. Rhylan probably loves the birds most of all. She specially requested to see a pony, we made sure we got that in too.

Rhylan has started fixing her hair by herself when we are just staying home. One day she came out of the bathroom like this. She had put on a headband and then clipped all these flowers to it, I think she looks like a fairy:)

Trick or Treat

We took the kids to our ward trunk or treat! It was awesome. I think there was 3 wards there, we left with buckets of candy. But of course on the real Halloween, we still wanted to go door to door trick or treating. We headed to our friends neighborhood and went trick or treating with them. They didn't need any training, the girls were pros! They ran from door to door as happy as can be. Of course we also had fun hanging with our friends.

Gracin would help himself to each bowl, but they thought he was so cute they let him:)

Halloween costumes

This was the first year that Rhylan really got to choose what she wanted to be for Halloween. After MUCH deliberation, she finally settled on a character from her favorite movie right now. She wanted to be Jewel, the girl blue macaw from the movie Rio. She liked flying around as Jewel.

I had a hard time decided what to have Gracin be. His favorite things are trains, Mater from Cars and Buzz Lightyear. Those would all be too hard to make. So one day I saw these skeleton pajamas for $6!!! They were so cute on his cute little round body:) He even was glow in the dark.
