Fall Photos, Part 2

For our fall pictures I had 2 places that I wanted to go, the first was the Alberta Research Park. You would never guess that in the back behind the research park there is a beautiful park with hills, trees and a pond with 2 fountains. I had no clue either, until one day we were driving and Jakob says "Mommy look at that water", so I decided we were going to check it out. It was totally worth it. The second place we went to was a park by my parents old house. We went there before for fall pictures. Great spot too.

Fall Photos, Part 1

I decided that since it was officially fall and it was a nice day, we were going to take fall pictures.
We started off the day with a practice picture, I asked the boys to sit on the steps and then smile. Well... this is what I got. And this theme kinda followed us the rest of the day. Jakob would stop and smile when I asked and Levi would frown and look down or run away. I had to trick Levi into looking at the camera, so there are some really good pictures, but there are lots of looking at the ground pictures. We'll call those art.

Waiting for Jakob

Jakob had a "Terry Fox Run" at school and the kids were supposed to be walking right in front of my parents house. Levi was looking out the window waiting to see his big brother walk by.
Jakob didn't end up walking past the house, the kindergarten kids walked the shorter route, but Levi had a good time watching the older kids, looking to find his brother in the crowd.

Apples, Apples & More Apples!!

This past week we picked apples at both Oma & Opa's houses. They each have a couple of really big apple trees, with tonnes of apples. The boys had fun climbing the ladders and picking the apples. We took home quite the load full of apples!!!

Church Family Fun Day

On Saturday our church had an outdoor event for the community which had an inflatable bouncy castle and slide, carnival games as well as a dunk tank. Our church band provided some background music. Here is a picture of us playing "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison. We have a video of Michael singing "Beautiful Day" by U2, but we won't torture you with that.
***For clarification, Michael did this post, Amy thought he should have put the video on***

Don't worry, we also played some of our favourite worship music as well.

Then we went over to Oma & Opa's and Jakob looked at the beans that him and Oma planted, pretending to eat one!
