Visit from the Brothers

September 17 - 26
We were lucky enough to have two of Matt's brother's along with family and girl friend come into town. First major thing on the list was of course THE LAKE!!

Carter and his cousin Dade were inseparable the entire time.

On Saturday we went to the lake and the weather quickly turned stormy so we decided to not wait it out and to just leave. It was a good thing because that night a micro burst hit above the lake and the damage was pretty extensive at one of the docks.

Luckily, Matt's parents store their boat at a different marina. Our hearts go out to those who had their boats damaged.

But nevertheless, we were back on the lake that next Monday ripping it up all day long.

Cory has his own style and finesse when it comes to tubing.

And Susan got the brunt of it. Check out Cory's knee and Susan's soon to be poor head.

Whut up home slice?

The courageous Dade still wanted to go out on the tube even after watching Cory annihilate Susan. :)

Hayden sleeps underneath one of the seats and Carter decided to give her some company.

The Brothers.


And Matteo again.

Me still trying to get some control over this ding dang board.

Me attempting once again.

Cory ripping it up on the water. This is I think one of his first times really getting on a wakeboard. He did it a couple times behind one of the sea doos, but behind a boat is much better. Anyway, Cory seemed like a natural out there.

And video of Cory:

Kurt has some major talent out on the slalom ski and makes it look so easy.

More Kurty-Pie

Meagan's not too shabby herself.

Apple Orchard
Grandma, Carter, Dade, Hayden and I decided to venture out to a local Apple Orchard. The boys picked some apples.

Then we went for a wagon ride.

As you can see, Dade is a gorgeous little boy.

We had a demonstration on bees and Carter volunteered to be the bee keeper.

I thought that white fence would make for a cool backdrop so Carter is tackling Dade to get him to pose for a picture with him. Needless to say, we didn't get a posed picture.

They had two little kittens we got to pet as well as pet and feed a miniature horse and baby goats.

Fall Festival
That next weekend was Fall Festival and Carter's preschool had a float that Carter got to ride on. See Carter's face once he saw me. Now see Carter's face when he sees cousin Dade:

It's no guess who the favorite is.

Hayden finally decided to pass out, but only after her battle with her pretzel:
