Then we had our annual wreath making party...

Just a day...

Just a fun Saturday with the boys...

Grandpa build Bjorn a new swing so Odin and Bjorn can swing at the same time!  They love it!

 Grandpa also build a balance structure from some small trees we cut down.

 Odin's got great balance!

A Visit From Mark, Mel and Madelyn

This past weekend we had a lovely visit from Mark, Mel and Madelyn.  They arrived on Saturday and waiting for their arrival was so hard for the boys.  Eventually Odin and Bjorn decided to build a fort and that helped pass the time.

Once they arrived, lots of fun was had!  The weather was a bit rainy, but that didn't stop us too much.  We rode bikes, did some archery...

 Went swimming!!  Well SOME went swimming!

 We did acrobatics over MOMMA!!!  That blur going over Momma's belly is Odin!

And a very special treat...we watched Star Wars.

And Bjorn hung with Uncle Mark as much as he possible could!

Fall Garden

Our garden has been so lovely and with the help of Lynna and Luca it has stayed relatively weed-free.  Right now our sweet potatoes are growing like mad!  We also have carrots, beets, kale, collards, broccoli and some summer veggies hanging on...

The sweet potatoes are in the back corner climbing up the fence:-)  The carrots are in the row just up from them and across from the carrots are the other fall veggies.
