Welcome Autumn!

Ah, the first day of Autumn! My favorite season! 

Summer has ended and all the excitement and craziness of early September with its back to school and start of sports and this and that and figuring things out......slowly, eventually, eases it's way into a predictable, manageable schedule. 

Time for everyone to mellow out. Time to take a deep breath. Time to have a little Fall fun!!

We are soooo looking forward to....

Chilly soccer mornings
Pumpkin target practice  

Pine needle piles 
Bonfires and marshmallow roasting

The crispness in the air and the crispness underfoot
Halloween decorations!

The changing of green leaves into beautiful fall foliage
Getting the perfect shot

The start of wrestling nights

Snuggling on the couch
Spooky stories from the library

Last weekend, after the kids' first soccer games, we headed to Hood River to visit the WAAAM (Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum)! 

This was our first time visiting the WAAAM and the kids just loved it! It was actually a special weekend, the WAAAM was having their annual Fly-In, this is where owners of older model aircrafts from all over fly in and display their aircrafts outside for all to see. So not only did we get to see what was displayed in the museum itself, but we were treated to all the aircrafts that were flown in for the special Fly-In weekend! 

It was seriously so awesome. The kids were very well behaved and really enjoyed looking at all the old airplanes and cars. We liked deciding which airplanes and cars were our favorites and which ones we'd want to own if we were millionaires, lol. They even had a special kids section where the kids got to burn off some pent up energy and play. 

We will definitely be going there again! The museum is sure to be a crowd pleaser, even when there isn't a special event going on! 

Super fun day! 

With love,
Mama Hauck

1st Soccer Games of the Season!

Molly had a wonderful first game this past Saturday! We are very proud of her for really getting into the game and staying on the ball. She gave her best and it was a joy watching her play. She did so wonderful! The whole team did a fantastic job listening to the coach and having a fun time playing.

Great job Blue Devils!

Great job keeping on the ball, Molly! 

Anthony also had a wonderful first game! He was his classic self; in the game 100%, giving his all, on the ball, and up and down that field! I think he surprised his coach with his speed and skill, haha. He made two goals during his game. Soccer is really Anthony's game, and it's incredibly fun and suspenseful watching him play. You can't help but scream and cheer from the sidelines! 

Go Firecrackers! 

Almost a goal! 

Anthony makes a goal in this one, but I was so tense from being excited, my finger slipped and pressed the off button on the camera video right as the ball went in the goal! Darn it! 

Soccer season is always a favorite of ours. We always look forward to being on the sidelines cheering for the kids. 

Great first game, kiddos! We are excited to watch you both have fun and grow in skill this season! 

With love,
Mama Hauck
