I really need to be better about blogging and get caught up!
Olivia loves to have her picture taken.

This will be a good blackmail picture one day. I tell her not to and she laughs and wants to do it even more.
She was facinated with her shadow.
Another season of soccer started and the boys had a blast as always.

Matt and I had a quick weekend escape to Logan. It's nice to have time without kids and sleep in. We went bowling and we always seem to bowl close to the same scores so I had to document it.

Playing on the playground during Ashton's soccer practice. She loves going anywhere with a playground.

If you know me you know I don't wear make-up. I'll occasionally put on mascara and that's about it. So I was surprised to see Olivia putting on make-up one day. She's definitely a girly girl and loves make-up and accessories.

The leaves were just starting to change colors at the cabin this weekend.

The boys love playing games and we had just bought Swashbuckled that my cousin introduced to us so we had a fun evening playing. Olivia was on my team. :)

This kid. So much personality. You can see his faded drawn on mustache from school and he likes wearing sunglasses, even inside.

Olivia found a workbook and came in my office and said she needed to do her homework for preschool. Being an October birthday she didn't get to start preschool this year and it's all she talks about. That and when she can start dance classes.

Earlier in the year Matt, the boys and I signed up to race the Dirty Dash in Midway. Unfortunately with my hip injury I wasn't going to be able to do it. I was really bummed about it and had been looking forward to it. We stayed at the cabin the night before and headed for Midway at around noon.

My brother took my place since it was already paid for so I figured someone might as well use the spot.
The kids race wasn't for another hour and a half so the boys just decided to do the whole 5K course with Matt and my brother. I'm glad they did because the kids race only went through a couple of obstacles but they were able to do them all.
Ashton was cold and was happy to be done but he enjoyed it.
Kaleb loved it and would have kept going if there was more to do.
I always tease Matt about how he puffs his cheeks.
They take pictures throughout the race but it's hard finding them because your numbers are either ripped off or covered in mud early on. But there were a couple good ones.
Ashton played flag football for the first time and he enjoyed it. We don't really watch sports much so at the first game we realized we should probably have filled him in more on the basics of the game but he picked it up pretty quick.

Slowly each weekend the leaves at the cabin became more and more yellow.

My sister and parents will come up on Saturday's if they are able to.
We had another Sunday dinner with all of my dad's side of the family at our cabin. We had to be to church so we started the roasts and made the rolls so they could rise first thing in the morning, then Matt and the kids headed down in one car to get ready for church, and once my parents and sister arrived after their church I drove down and also went to church. Then we drove up after church and had yummy food and homemade ice cream. It's always fun being together but it's even better being in the mountains.

It was also the night of the eclipse so we watched that too.
She loves taking selfies.

The kids always love going to the school carnival and Olivia especially loved it. She REALLY wanted her face painted so I waited in the slow line while Matt took her to do other things. She wanted of course Elsa and she sat really still.

Ashton didn't care to have his face painted but Kaleb did.
Ashton was having too much fun running around to the different blow-ups.
The dunk tank is always popular with the boys.
There was even a pretty sunset just as it was ending.
Olivia thinks it's funny to suck a cup to her face. She was pretty proud of herself when she figured out how to do it.
