Fall 2009 - Trip to Georgia and Halloween!

Oktoberfest at Fort Benning, Georgia. Everette and I went with Mike while he did his CRC for his next mission. It was a great visit... mom and dad drove up and spent the first weekend with us! We did several things there around Columbus, and then Everette and I drove out to visit with my dear friend Nellie and her big family! Nellie and her husband Rob have triplets! they were born in Hawaii just months before they moved, so I had not seen them since they were tiny tiny!

Father and son! So handsome!!

There they all are! Left to right the babies are Matthew, Austin and Emily. We had such a wonderful time visiting with them... they are such happy babies!!!

While in GA we made a visit to the Atlanta Zoo! Rhett just loved it... Mike and I did too! They have a really nice set-up there. Once Everette realized that there was a 'train ride' it was hard to keep him focused on the animals though!

Really scary huh?!

oink oink!

My two goof balls!! i LOVE them so much!!!

At the pumpkin patch!
Everette and I went to visit my cousin Kim and her family while we were in Atlanta. We only spent one night, and I wish we could have visited longer :( We went with them to a pumpkin patch to take some pics....

Halloween 2009
Everette dressed as a big scary dinosaur this year!!! (not so scary.... adorable if you ask me!) But he sure did enjoy 'growling'! We headed out to the fetivities with my friend Valerie and her two kids, Mathieu and Luca. We went to a Fall Festival before trick or treating to play some games and then braved the sprinkles and the cold to get the CANDY!! The weather cleared up nicely though, and we really enjoyed the whole trick or treat experience (Rhett's first!) He really got into and was sure to growl and say "trick or trick" at every house!!
