Mimi's Birthday

On the morning of my Mom's birthday the boys helped me make Texas Sweet Bread.
Then we drove down to Ithaca to take them to see the falls and to take the kids to the science center they have there. I LOVE seeing the falls. It's really making me like living here more and more! First we took them to the large one that we saw last time.
Then we went to one we all hadn't seen yet, Taughannock Falls. At first we went to a viewing spot that was above the falls.
Then we walked 3/4th of a mile to the bottom of it. This thing was huge!

This waterfall is 215ft tall, it was awesome. The leaves are starting to change and the area is so pretty! There are many more falls and gorges to see in Ithaca and I hope we're able to see some of them before we move!

Apple picking

My Mom and step-Dad came into town last week and we had a blast! One of the first things we did was apple picking. I did this with the Cate's last year, and I was super excited that Brian was here with us this year (as well as my Mom and Kenny!)

1st day of Kindergarten - Take 2

After going to the public school for a few days last week we decided that we'd prefer if the boys went somewhere else, so we enrolled them into a Catholic private school. So far we love the school and I am so happy we went ahead and switched them! So of course that meant I had to take new pictures :) Their school is so cute and I love that Quinn gets to wear a uniform (I wish Grayson did too!)1st day photo!

First Syracuse football game

Yesterday we went to our first Syracuse football. Brian was able to get free service member appreciation tickets! This was the first football game we've ever taken the boys to and we had a great time!

I will support Syracuse but Tech will ALWAYS be my team :)

Our Kindergartener!!

Today is Quinn's 1st day of KINDERGARTEN!! He has been talking about it for weeks! The other day he put on his 1st day of school outfit and went over to the school so I could get some kindergarten pictures (which I'm REALLY glad I did since it's been POURING all day long.) He looks so grown up!
And then here are a couple from today. Since apparently first day of school gifts are the way to go... we did one as well. Yet another fun project thanks to pinterest :)

And the official picture!

I can't wait to pick him up and hear all about his first day!

Visit from Grandpa L

Brian's Dad and his wife came into town last weekend for a little visit. The boys LOVE when people come to visit and they were very excited to see him! Thankfully just a couple more weeks and we'll have more visitors :)

New York State Fair

We had lots of fun at the NY State Fair here in Syracuse. As always the boys loved the games and rides and came home with lots of cheezy prizes :)
