Fall Fun!

Soccer has started again, Ben is not so sure what he thinks of soccer but he certainly loves to kick the ball. His favorite is the game call "clean up the back yard" where each team tries to keep all the balls on the other side of the field.

Last weekend we headed to the MN Zoo with the kids. It was a chilly morning but we dressed for the weather and walked and walked and walked. The zoo had so much to see and here are some the the kids' favorites.

Sunday we went to an apple orchard. We decided to try a new one this year and we loved it. We went to Fall Harvest Orchard in Delano. It is a small working farm so the kids were put to work when we got there. Ben helped pick the eggs in the chicken coop.

Night at the Station

So all summer we have been doing BBQ's with our friends to replace our weekly softball games. In August Liz and Steve hosted the dinner at the Chanhassen Fire Station. The Kids LOVED it! They all got to go for a ride in a fire truck, play with the equipment, try on all Steve's gear and climb all over the trucks.

Ready for their ride!
