Election Day November 2010. The boys school happens to be a voting station. NO SCHOOL!
We started the day bundling up in our winter clothes to accomplish our goal. In our county they have a "Fall Hiking Spree." If you do 8 of the designated hikes before the end of November, you get a FREE walking stick. Last year we came close but didn't quite make 8 hikes. This year, I was bound and determined to accomplish our goal. And today, a no school day, a fairly cold no school day....introducing...the newest Fall Hiking Spree Finishers! You should have seen their faces. We have been working towards this for 2 months. Awesome!
Than we celebrated by going out to "lunch". I took the kids to a pizza restaurant and we got to sit down and eat pizza in a real restaurant. They LOVED it! (I'm not sure if I did)
If that weren't enough, when daddy got home from work, we all piled in the car and headed to the "DQ". The kids award for their scripture reading. We stole this tradition from my dad who always took us down to the DQ on 13th So in SLC if we read our scriptures. The kids LOVE it! And even crazier, Jake and Nomers get the Oreo Blizzard just like their mom used to.
