Kaden wanted a mario birthday party this year. It was pretty fun to put together. We had pizza and played musical chairs to mario game music and goomba stomp with balloons.

Temple

Our long awaited trip to the Temple finally came. This was a day I had been dreaming of for the last 8 years and even more so after each child. What an emotional day this was. We would drive past the temple nearly every day weeks before and I'd tell Kaden and Kairi we were finally going to go inside and how special is was going to be. They would ask questions like what it was like inside and what they were going to do there and if they were going to see Jesus. Then Kairi would ask to sing the Temple song and I'd get teary.

There is a certain feeling afterward that I can only describe as finally being whole. Knowing that we will be a family forever is the most secure feeling i've ever felt. No matter what happens in this life, we'll always be together.

Pumpkinland

Kaden's field trip to Pumpkinland was so fun. They had some really huge pumpkins. And a variety of animals, kind of like a petting zoo.
We travelled along this pathway through the store front, past green houses, through a field where they had been growing tomatoes and gourds and pumpkins, into a playground area.
The playground had an Alice in wonderland theme. They also provided us with a scavenger hunt worksheet which was fun to try and find the different things on the list. At the end of the trip they got to pick out a pumpkin to take home.

It looks like we have some catching up to do. Here is Kaden's on his first day of preschool, and Kairi in her dress-up playing kitty. Kaden was so excited to learn new things and meet new people. Kairi wanted to go too and constantly asks when it will be her turn to go to school.
