Family Night Out

For our latest Family Night Out we decided to take advantage of the free night at the Museum of Nature and Science. Cayden was very excited to go the museum. He wanted to see the dinosaurs. They have an exhibit right now that is all about life in the Amazon. They had lots of cool things. It made Jared miss Argentina a little bit when he saw the pirhanas, capybara, and howler monkeys. It was cute to see him tell Cayden all about everything they saw.

Enormous catfish. Ewww!! (On the other side you could reach inside the belly to see what it ate)

Cayden loved being "inside" the fish tank.
Jakey really liked the dinosaurs too.

Jared CAN hang like a monkey!

The boys like the toddler area in the body exhibit.

One last, very tired, picture with the dinosaur.
After the museum we grabbed a quick bite to eat at A&W. A nice cold root beer from the tap was a perfect way to end a family night out. I love nights out with my boys!

I know I'm way behind But I wanted to share our Halloween fun with you. This year we decided to dress us as the gang from Phineas and Ferb. Cayden was Phineas, Jake was Ferb, I was Candace (the older sister), and Jared was Jeremy (Candace's boyfriend). We went to our trunk or treat on Saturday before Halloween and had a blast. Then on Halloween we dressed Cayden up again and took him out to do White Magic. Growing up I only went trick or treating a few times. My mom didn't like the idea of us going out and begging for candy and then threatening to play a trick on someone if they didn't give candy. So we did White Magic. We made all sorts of treats and goodies and took them out to neighbors and home and visiting teaching families. We gave treats and got candy in return. We still dressed up so it was still fun for us. And to tell you the truth, the few years I did go trick or treating I felt really silly. So Cayden did White Magic this year and then we took him trick or treating to a few houses in my parents neighbor hood. We had fun, the weather was GREAT, and Cayden loved being Phineas.
