GREAT weekend!

What a weekend! I had my friend Reesha's birthday party Friday night and Saturday we went to my parents to see some family visiting from Texas. My cousin Kelly is a pilot and so he flew the family up in his plane. Eric, Kelly and I went up for a plane ride yesterday and had a ton of fun! I got to sit up front with Kelly at the controls--head set and all! We flew over my parents house a bit, over the Des Moines River then over to Ames to see the ISU football stadium.

Landon loved seeing the plane! I almost took him up--but wasn't sure how he'd react so left him on the ground with my sister. Maybe next time????

Enjoy the pictures!

SO big!

Ready for Fall!

I can't believe another summer is ending! Football season is here and the leaves are falling!

Wanted to post a few recent pics from late Summer, and also a few from our trip to St Louis a few weekends ago. Eric had to go to Columbia and St Louis for work so we left Landon with Grandma and Grandpa Hill and had a weekend was great! It was also our first weekend we were BOTH away from Landon together.....he is TWO! I think it was long overdue.

We have some fun things coming up we're looking forward to. We're heading to Omaha soon for a weekend to meet up with Chad, Brenda and Charli at CoCo Keys hotel with the indoor water park. We're also planning to hit up a pumpkin patch while out there so I know the kids are going to have a ball. Also coming up is the ISU vs Nebraska game!! GO CYCLONES!! (hey, I do this blog....not Eric) We'll have a day of tailgating for that while we ship off Landon again.

All is going well and Landon is a ton of fun these days. A pistol at times, but fun. He's very stubborn and independent, but he's two!!!!

Cardinals vs. Marlins game

On the Budweiser Tour-they give you free beer!
