Fall Break

Rog had his Fall Break last week. I started out the week not feeling so well with a cold and he ended up getting it from me, but we were able to have some fun anyway!

We had a bunch of bananas to use up. While looking for something to make, I came across these Banana Mummy Rolls and thought they would be fun for a FHE treat. (I made them with Biscoff instead of Nutella.) Rog and I thought they were delicious, but the kids wouldn't touch them! 


We used a Redbox code to rent Million Dollar Arm. Rog and I both really liked it. A good story with a good message - you can't beat that!

I had another doctor appointment at 17 weeks. It's always fun to hear the heartbeat again and after my appointment I scheduled the big 20 week ultrasound for November 7th - can't wait!

We made our annual trip to the Red Barn where we went down the big slide...


Rode tractors...



Did the maze a few times...


Picked out our pumpkins...


And asked a stranger to take our picture. Peyton would not smile for him (possibly because he had a beard and long hair), but this picture is pretty good nonetheless.


We packed a picnic lunch and played at the park.


We saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 at the Spanish Fork Theatre.

Rog finished up this coat rack for me (with a lot of help from our friend, Justin Goodrich).


One of our neighbors gave us free tickets to Cornbelly's, so we got to go back and make up for our lame first visit. We stayed for hours and got to do so many fun things. To name a few... 

We rode the Cow Train (it was a rough ride and I kind of wished I didn't!)...


Went through the Wizard of Oz Corn Maze...


(Corbyn was our fearless leader and Peyton was the holder of the map.)


Drove a wooden bus...


Pretended we were spiders...


Played on Cornbelly Mountain...


(Corbyn was such a good big brother! I don't think he would actually trade his sister for candy like his shirt says.)


Took pictures with the Wizard of Oz characters...


And sat in the giant rocking chair!


That night we dropped our kids off and got to go on our date I earned the week before. We went to Olive Garden for their Endless Pasta Bowl. 

Saturday morning the kids and I ran the Cougar Run.


It was Peyton's first year running it and she was absolutely adorable!


We missed the start of Corbyn's race because his race was literally right after Peyton's, so we had him run the race with the 5-6 year olds. Because he was registered with the 1-4 year olds, his race results say it took him 10 minutes to run 200 meters when really it took him 3 minutes to run 400 meters!


I haven't been running this pregnancy because my sister Diana (the Ironman midwife) doesn't run while she is pregnant. So I walked the race with my mom. I felt really lame walking (especially after taking 3rd and 2nd the past two years), but I really wanted to do the race this year to celebrate 10 years of running. (More on this coming in another post.) When we got on the track two ladies tried to pass us. I wasn't having any of that, so I took off running and ditched my mom. I figured one lap around the track wasn't going to kill the baby.


Peyton ran the last bit with Grandma. (And yes, she is wearing a dress over her pants - she absolutely insisted.)


Jared also ran the race. Here are the 5 Cougar Runners (6 if you count baby in my tummy).


That night we all got to go to the Homecoming game. It was a late game, so the kids left with Grandma after the first quarter. We played Nevada and we really really should have won. The score was 28-13 at halftime, but we ended up losing 35-42.


Despite some sickness, it was a really fun Fall Break!

I didn't know kids could do the Cougar run! That's so fun! Maybe next year we'll have to come up and do it with you:)
