A Howling Good Time

This Saturday we celebrated my baby turning 9 by having a slumber party at the Great Wolf Lodge. All I can say is that if you ever get a chance to go stay at there you will not be disappointed! The water park was awesome. The slides are so much fun. My favorite was the Howling Tornado. Part of the slide actually goes outside of the building. My other favorite slide is one that you twirl around in like you are being flushed down the toilet. Katie really enjoyed the big bucket dump and slides. After a day of fun filled water activities we went back up to our kids cabin and got dressed and opened up some presents. Her friends all gave her great gifts. We had dinner and then on the wand scavenger hunt throughout the hotel. You buy a wand and then there is a game where you look for different things on all of the floors of the hotel. It takes about 4 to 5 hours to finish the game. We played for about an hour and half and then the girls were wiped out. We had breakfast in the morning and then another trip to the water park to finish off the celebration. A huge THANKS to my best friend in the world Shay for all of your help! She braved the slumber party with me and also bought me a super cute pair of pjs (see picture below).

The Mustang Stampede

On Friday Katie's school had their Mustang Stampede Fundraiser. Basically people would sponser Katie with money for her run around the school. They had 30 minutes to see how many laps they could run around the entire school. The weather was beautiful that morning and Katie had quite the cheering the section. She ran nine laps and had the red face to prove it. I joined in and ran the last lap with her. As usual, I am so very proud of her.

Peace, Love & Middle School

Friday was my last day at the middle school. My last week was also spirit week so it was really fun to dress up. Tuesday was decade day and at first I wasn't going to dress up but then my mom had so much to offer when it came to dressing like the 60's. Here are some pictures from the day. Keep in mind that the brown vest thing actually went to a Hendrix stuff was authentic!! Thanks mom for all of the cool stuff!!!

Rough Rider Pumpkin Patch

Katie and I went to the Rough Rider baseball field for a little fall fun.  They were putting on a pumpkin patch for the kids.  The pumpkins were all out in the outfield and Katie had a blast running around.  I had never been the the ballpark before and it is great.  I would love to go to a game sometime.  By the way, for those of you wondering about the glasses, they are purely a Katie fashion statement....
