Meatballs 3D~ Ducks~ KX85

We had a great trip away. Kevin and I went on a short cruise to Cabo San Lucas (4 night) and it was a wonderful time away from the kids. My sister was awesome and babysat the whole time-- so thanks tons Cass!! I will post pictures of that soon but right now I created a couple collages of things we have been up to.

First off we went to see Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs in 3D a couple weeks ago. The kids thought the glasses were totally cool. We were watching the boys friend Jeremiah over the weekend so he came too.

Next we went to a Ducks Hockey Preseason game with our friends. They have a box this year so it is so nice to be able to sit on the couch and get drinks out of the refrigerator and have room for Mia to run around. We had a blast and -- YIPEEEEE!!!! HOCKEY SEASON IS BACK!!!!!

The boys got motorcycles about a year ago and we have realized they have grown out of them. Kids bikes hold their value really well and Kevin takes awesome care of things so we decided to sell the bikes about a month ago and to keep our eyes open for good deals on the bikes we want for them. Ethan wants a KX85 and Owen a KX65. We have been looking for used bikes on CraigsList for about a month and late last night Kev found an amazing deal on a KX85 located right in our city for about $600 less than what it should have been. Needless to say we snatched it up quickly. Kevin picked the boys up from school today and took them to Ethan's football game which was an away game. After the game he called me when he was pulling into the driveway and we opened the garage door just as they pulled up. Owen already knew since it was not his bike (just so he didn't feel bad- we are still shopping for his) but Ethan was blown away and was just yelling-- no way, no way!!! He was so excited and it is a really cool bike with a lot of upgrades. We were stoked to get it!!
