Poor West has a cold and has not been feeling good for a couple days. I hate when kids are sick. It seems like there is nothing I can do to make him feel better. He just wants to lay around. If he sits down for one second he ends up falling asleep! Yesterday Kev was outside mowing the lawn and West fell asleep on his toy thing! It seem like all he does is sleep. I think that's probably a good thing. Hopefully he will start feeling better soon. I can't wait for him to start acting like his old self.
Kev and I have seen the funniest videos with people wearing glow sticks so we decided to try it out on G and West. This video isn't the best but it's the only one I could get before West was done. We were thinking we should have the boys wear them for Halloween, but there is no way West would leave them on!
Garrett got a bike a while ago and he cannot figure out how to pedal! It is so frustrating to try to teach him because he doesn't really care if he can't do it, he'll just try again later. I guess he gave up on trying to figure it out himself and asked his little brother to step in and give him a hand!!

My brother and his wife have been here visiting with their two cute kids. We hate having them so far away but it makes it so fun when they come visit. My sister Lori and her family came down too while Nate was here so we had everyone together. My parents took us and all of the kids to "Liberty Land," that new place just off the freeway. It was so much fun, I think the adults had just as much fun as the kids. I even saw my mom and my brother in law riding the horses on the carousel! West wanted to ride the airplanes over and over again. He loved going all by himself. G loved the go carts, he couldn't get enough! We have loved being able to hang out with everyone when ever we want. Garrett and West don't even know what to do with all of the cousins around. They have a blast playing with them. We will miss everyone so much!
