Veteran's Day Weekend

For Veteran's Day weekend, we went out to stay in Overton, because that is just what we do whenever we get a weekend off.  Emily and Travis, being the wonderful people that they are, let us crash at their house.  And, we lucked out, cuz their trip to Circleville fell through, so we got to spend the whole weekend with them!
When we woke up Saturday morning, it was just too beautiful a day to not spend the majority of it outside :)  So we packed up the gear and headed out to the "secret" sand dunes.
The kids were just in heaven
And I have to admit, us adults had a lot of fun too
Even though Im still trying to get the sand out of our clothes
There was just a light breeze and it really started to feel like Fall in Nevada
Clark and Kate spent time digging in the sand looking for rocks that they were sure pirates had burried
haha  This picture makes me laugh, cuz Brad looks like such a weirdo over there
Sand Angel
Kal is eating dirt and apparently Clark thinks its pretty funny
We of course went shooting, because Im married to Brad and I dont think we can ever go out without some target practice
Clark (and Brad) was overjoyed when he hit one of the cans dead-on and it went spinning into the air.  He had the biggest smile on his face the whole drive home
Kate and her rock collection
After we scrubbed the sand out of the babies as best we could, we headed down to go old MVHS to see the last little bit of the pirate play-offs. 
Clark had a blast all weekend with his cousins!  Playing hide-and-go-seek in the dark, jumping on the trampoline, and there was a whole lot of screaming and laughing.  When we were getting ready to leave, he asked me if we could stay at Emmy's forever
Kalvin had fun too.  He is finally starting to warm up to people a little more. (thank heavens)  He had one sad moment when he rolled down the stairs.  I guess now both he and Clark have had that adventure
Before we knew it, it was Monday and we were down on Main watching the Veteran's Day parade.  It was pretty short this year.  I was surprised.
Clark got way too much candy that he was thrilled with, but that we "accidentally" left in Overton
Brad looking disappointed haha
Love these weekends so much!! :)
