After we took the kids trick or treating we drove them over to Mark's parents house where they spent the night until Sunday. We left at 8:30 and drove to Stockton where we picked up Jenny, Dave and Kate, then we continued all the way to Huntington beach. Mark drove the whole way Dave kept him awake with Francis Chan sermons on his ipod. Jenny and I took turns sleeping in the back while Kate slept the whole way. We arrived at Nichole's house at 3:40 in the morning. The next day Nichole and Joel took us to Crystal Cove for lunch on the beach. Later that afternoon we drove to Breanna's wedding, which was really nice. The next day we went to their church Rock Harbor, and out to lunch from there we drove out. It was a nice weekend without kids accept for baby Kate who doesn't count yet. The boys had a blast with Barbara and Leo and my Mom and Dad. I was excited to get back to them by the end of the weekend.
The boys loved being a cowboy and a cow for Halloween. We got a jack a lantern pizza from Papa Murphy's that night for dinner. The kids loved going around the neighborhood and getting candy Roman would not let go of his trick or treat pumpkin for anything. It was a fun night!
Last month we went and stayed at Jenny and Dave's house for the weekend. While we were there we celebrated Mark's Nonna's 85th birthday. We went to Macaroni grill with his whole family, Jenny and Dave watched the boys for us so we could enjoy our meal. We took the boys to Nonna's so she could still see them. Dominic stood right at the oven and asked for a cookie as soon as he got there. She keeps her cookies in a tin box in the oven. It was fun hanging out with Jenny and Dave and seeing Mark's family that is his cousin's son Franco I am holding above.

Last Sunday we went to Bishop's pumpkin farm with Mark's parents and his sister and her family. The kids had fun going down slides, eating ice cream, riding ponies, and playing on pumpkins. If you haven't been to Bishop's in Wheatlin you should check it out.
