For Ashers birthday, he wanted Frozen and Star Wars. For his party at Pams, we got Frozen cookies. They turned out pretty good and he loved the look. On Saturday afternoon, we took advantage of the nice weather and held his party outside at the park down the road. Star Wars was the theme for that day. He had a blast at both parties.

Getting ready for the game.
Waiting to hit the ball with Beckett!
Got to run the bases at the Little K!
Our new baby-sitter, Pam, had a day off, so we had to stay home with Asher. We decided to take advantage of the situation and the day was beautiful, so Monica and Annika also took the day off and we headed to the Pumpkin Patch. Since we went on a Thursday morning we pretty much had the run of the place. The kids loved playing in the field, running the hay bale maze, and riding on the trailer.
After the pumpkin patch, we headed to the Legends shopping area, where we ate lunch and then played skee-ball and video games at Dave and Busters.
I'll hold your hand so I'll be careful, Daddy.
Fun presents with skeeball tickets.

Our girl loves being athletic. She loves to play. She loves to run. New things are hard for her. So when we found out that there was a kindergarten girls soccer team at her school, we asked Annika if she wanted to play. At first she said no, but then said that she wanted to, so we signed her up. Practice went well, she started off a bit shy, but it went well. We forgot our lesson from swimming this summer, and put her in in the first game, there were tears, but she ended up going back in the game with a smile just before the end. Since then, she loved it and hasn't looked back. And it's been amazing watching her have fun and work on her skills. It helped her, and us, make new friends. Overall, a very successful season.
