Sometimes Ross is worth the horrible parking, long and endless lines, and misplaced items when you find this adorable and very handsome outfit for your son. Right now they have a great selection of dressy boy outfits for 9.99-10.99!! pants, shirt, tie, and vest! seriously can't beat that!! The top picture is my absolute favorite of him and that will be printed and hung in our new home, whenever we find it! :)

Pumpkin Patch

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch on the 20th of October. It was a beautiful day, nice and sunny!! It wasn't cold either. We had been having such a nice fall. We went to a small farm in Silverdale. It was perfect for what we wanted, but next year i think we may go to a larger one with more stuff to do.
It was so cute. As we got up to the pumpkins Kason knew exactly what he wanted. He jumped out of the wagon and ran up to the small one and said "my pumpkin!" it was like he had seen it in a vision and knew that was THE one! haha. On the way to the patch he had told me he wanted a small one.He didn't even want to look at any other pumpkinhe carried it back to the wagon all by himself! he was so proudi tried to get his pictures sitting on the pumpkins but he kept giving me this look! it's cute though
i LOVE this picture!!!

After we went to the pumpkin patch we went to Poulsbo to see my grandparents. My Grandpa Martinson and Kason have a special connection and i love how much they love each other. Kason loves to ride on the tractor with Grandpa Martinson and i know Grandpa Martinson loves to give him rides!!It was so cute.. my grandpa told Kason they would go around the driveway loop once.. well as they came around grandpa told me Kason wanted to do one more... and then again one more.. I'm pretty sure it was Grandpa that wanted to keep going around!! He enjoys it just as much as Kason! i love that. My grandpa Martinson is young at heart and is amazing!
They have a porch swing that kason has mastered to get it to swing by himself.. he runs into it and then crawls up as it swings! it's cute.. this is his cheesy grin!
This is Kason's decorated pumpkin!! We used Mr. Potato head parts instead of carving!! it was so fun.. he told me where he wanted something and i used a dowel and punched in a hole and he put what part he wanted into the hole.. this is his finished masterpiece.. the funny thing is he calls it "papa cine", papa cline. :)The artist with his masterpiece!

101 loop

I love that we live in one of the most beautiful places in the USA, well in my opinion! :)
During conference weekend i decided to surprise logan with a mini road trip. He has never done the whole 101 loop and i hadn't done it in such a long time that i thought it would be a lot of fun for us to do it! I am happy that we did it in the fall, the colors were just amazing!
We got up early Sunday morning and started going north to Poulsbo then over the floating bridge then to hwy 101.
We got to Sequim Bay state park and found a day use area and started breakfast. We brought our camp stove along and yummy food. We made a great breakfast and i am lucky enough to have a phone on which we were able to broadcast conference from.
So as we were enjoying a Delicious breakfast watching the sun break open through the thick gray clouds, birds flying over the water just as the choir started singing. It was truly amazing. We packed up after we were full and continued to drive and listen to conference. we stopped here and there when we wanted and just enjoyed the beauty around us, listened to amazing words of conference, and made lasting memories as a family. Here are a bunch of pictures...
driving over the floating bridge... the weather was looking pretty grim...our view as we listened to the choir sing and ate our breakfast. it was amazing!we pulled Kason straight out of bed and put him in his car seat when we left.. we left so early we didn't want to wake him until we had too.. so he played and ate breakfast in jammies.. reminded me of camping :)i LOVE this picture of Logan and I. we don't have many of just us.The three musketeers! he sacked out after getting a belly full of yummy breakfast.cresent lake. It's between Port Angeles and Forks. The water is really clear and you can see down to the bottom in the shallower areas. It was really cloudy here and a heavy thick mist covered us.growing up in Washington i have always loved how the fog would settle in between the valleys of thick trees. it looks so beautiful to me.We then got to Forks. Or shall i say Twilight central? Logan and i were cracking up the entire time. I have read and love all the Twilight books, but i thought it was funny how everything in Forks is now Twilight..'s a blurry picture.. but that sign says "TWLIGHT FIREWOOD" seriously people!?!?!
We also found it funny that it was BEAUTIFUL and SUNNY in Forks, which is one of the wettest places in the NW and that Sequim, one of the sunniest places was rainy and yucky!!
We drove to the HOH Rain forest. We drove to the actually entrance then turned around. It was beautiful!
We then went to Ruby Beach. This place is BEAUTIFUL! We listened to the last few Conference talks as we walked the beach. It was amazing. It was just amazingly beautiful at the beach, it was a bit windy but it wasn't cold! I loved it. I couldn't believe it was October and it was that nice. The tide was suppose to be all the way out according to tide charts but it wasn't a very low low tide.. oh well it was beautiful still. We did manage to see some sea life but not much. Alot of the tide pools were completely covered.
Kason LOVES the beach and had so much fun making sand castles!!
We then drove to Matlock and visited with Logan's family. Then we came home. It was a great day and a lot of fun! I took WAY more pictures then these but i didn't think you want to see hundreds of pictures!! :)
We want to do the loop again but take a few days to do it next time. There was a lot we skipped so we could make it home before midnight!!
