FireStation Day

As you might remember, Rylee is really into firetrucks for some reason. So when we heard about a night when people were aloud to go to the firestation, and  do all kinds of different things, we knew we had to go.
 Notice Rylee is not in this picture with the clown, she was way scared of them all. I think it's funny that she is scared of clowns, considering that she is 2 and has no reason to be scared of clowns.
 We got to actually ride in the fire truck, which was definitely a high light, of Rylee's, well life. Also Reese got to sit in the front and turn on the siren, which she thought was way cool.

 One thing that was really cool is they let the kids hold a fire hose and spray the water. I only have it on video and not a picture.
 Rylee had to wear her fire chief hat, and it has a siren on it that you can turn on, I think we were driving everyone nuts, but she loved it.
 They also had an ambulance and a helicopter, that the kids got to walk through and sit in. All in all it was such a fun night. The girls had so much fun, I hope they do it again next year.

Fall Drive

A couple of weeks ago we took a nice drive to look at the leaves. Jeremy took these pictures, and I have to say, these don't do it justice. The sun had just disappeared, and the spot we stopped didn't have as many leaves as other spots. But it was gorgeous.

 This was out first outing for quite awhile as a family, because Jeremy has had strep, tonsillitis, then surgery to have his tonsils and adenoids removed, and then pneumonia.  He was just recovered enough we thought to take a relaxing drive. It was great. We did step out for a few minutes, to let the girls stretch their legs and throw some rocks in the water.
 My Reese is getting so old, she is loving going to school. And so far she is doing great, her reading is way above average, and I'm so proud of her.
 Rylee is so sweet and funny, we just lover her so much. She still misses Reese every time she goes to school.
