Life Lately....

It has been a busy couple of weeks.  Here is a little glimpse of our life lately....

We have been enjoying the weather and spending as much time as possible outside!  We have hiked, rode bikes after dinner, and visited our favorite nature trail too many times to count.



Leyton started skating lessons with Wildcat Hockey.  He absolutely loves it!

 

Rylan ran in his school Colorthon.


Leyton and I visited the farmers market last Thursday for a little fall fun.


The kids were out of school for Parent Teacher conferences last Friday so we ventured out to Sutter's Ridge before the rain arrived.


Our high school team has made it to the play-offs....so it's Friday night lights.


Holden and Rylan both finished up their football seasons.


Our mornings have been gorgeous!


We all enjoyed the beautiful fall weather at Enchanted Farms.  There was so much to do and so many great memories.


We attended the UW Red and White Scrimmage.  I think the highlight was meeting the players.  The boys met Brad Davison, Kobe King and T.J. Schlundt.


We experienced the most beautiful sunset and rainbow!


Well, thats about all that has been going on these past couple of weeks...more to come from Fall Break and our day to day life.

Apple Picking


Our weekends have been filled with football and fall ball that we really have not had much time for fall activities.  We were finally able to find some time for apple picking.  We have done this as a family for the past 10 years that I did not want to give up on this tradition.  Plus, Leyton has been so excited about picking his own apples that we had to make time.  The weather was perfect and the boys had 3 full bags in no time at all!  The trees were full apples which was a little surprising considering our late freeze and warm fall.  



Some decided to have a little taste testing...you know for quality control.



Now that we have lots of apples we will have to make something good with all of these beauties.

Swing for the Ring


Back in the summer, Rylan's baseball team played in a tournament that was called "Swing for the Ring".  This was a large tournament played throughout the state and the tournament champ from each age level would receive a custom ring at the Brewer vs. Cubs game in September.




Well, last weekend was the big game and ceremony.  Only the team and coaches were allowed to go to go on the field but here are a few pictures from the game.


Shockingly, it just happened to be the hottest day of the year...it was in the 90's which is unheard of in Wisconsin especially in September!  A perfect day for baseball!

The Brewers ended up winning the game in a walk off home run and Rylan took home this awesome ring!  Seriously, how cool is this.


Lots of fun baseball memories to closeout an amazing season with the T-Cats!
