We had a great time this Halloween!  The girls are a little older and able to do more things in celebration of the wonderful time of year...FALL.  First we met up with Victoria, Grandma, Nana and Papa at a trunk n treat.  This was the first and last for us!  We we're amazed at how many people were there!  Think thousands!!!!  Our girls don't really eat candy now anyway so we took them straight to the activies.  We found a little area in the corner of the park, which was just for the girls' age group.

They had the most perfect toys for them to play on! 
They had a blast!

Of course the petting zoo was a big hit!  Adisyn this time seemed to warm up to the animals a bit more this time.  Things were getting a little heated when a pig bit a little girls knee.  Not to mention the duck that was freaking out just waiting to
chomp on some little girls finger. 
Being the protective parents we are,  petting zoo time was over.

CUTEST little lady bugs in the WORLD!!!!!

It started to get a little chilly and late for the girls so Victoria and Grandma took the girls to their house for a slumber party, while Shawn and I went to Stacy and Dylan's party.

Best Halloween party of 2010!!!

Bringin' the 20's back baby!

Lets just say its a good thing the girls did not witness the scariness going on here!  Great Costumes!

Its no wonder Papa won the best costume award!

Awe yes, not sure who's genious idea this was... We all got into a big circle and shocked our selves.  It was certainly the highlight of my night!  Good times at the Mealeys'!

Pumkin Festival


This past weekend we took the girls to their first pumpkin festival.  It is so much fun to take them to new places as they grow.  We all had a great time, so much that we have decided to make it an annual event. 
The girls had such a great time!

The girls got pumpkin paintings.  Naturally, Ava being a little timid of the man doing the paintings, he decided to put in on her arm.  Adisyn didn't mind so she got hers on her cheek.

The girls went on their first carousel ride.  They both loved it!  Just before the carousel started moving Adisyn spotted two dogs just outside the gate and immediately wanted to go say hi.  They have an obsession for dogs!  As the carousel started moving I said to her " the dogs are going bye-bye".  Well that was the WrOnG thing to say, she started histarically crying, which fortunately didn't last long.  They had a great time!

We took the girls to the petting zoo area.  Strangely enough Ava absoultely LOVED the goats.  She didn't want to leave. 
She even gave a few lucky goats a kiss. 

Adisyn on the other hand wanted nothing to do with them!  She clung to Grandma and wasn't going to let go for nothing!

 Pumpkins everywhere!  Adisyn loved the pumkin that she got from Grandma!
 Of course DJ's mission: Find the biggest pumpkin you can!
My brother DJ and sister Katy!

Victoria and DJ racing to get to the finish line
We decided to go through the corn maze.  Not gonna lie it was a little freaky but lots of fun.
(this is Katy and I scared)

We took some souvanirs home with us!  The girls love corn on the cob, what can be fresher than picking it ourselves.

Fortunately for a change we were only minutes from home.  We were all exhausted by the end of the night.  The girls fell asleep in the car and gave up no fight when it was time to hit the crib.

On a side note we are proud to say that we are a bottle less home!  The girls have gone a week with no bottle!!!! yah Girls!

Sedona trip


We had a great time in Northern Az this past weekend.  We started our trip in Jerome, where shawn and I fell in love with this cute town, we look forward to going back and spending more time there.  Everything around from the buildings to the streets had so much character.  The weather was beautiful!

 Old buildings that we loved!

View from the edge of town

In Jerome we met up with the rest of the group and enjoyed some delicious food.  Shawn and I had to ditch the double stroller becuase we couldn't fit in any of the doors or resturants.  Its always an adjustment taking our family places, we're getting better but still don't have it down.  After lunch we headed to some of the wineries in town.  Our first stop Caduceus, this was also the first time Shawn and I have ever been wine tasting.  We are very interested in wine (especially me) how its made what foods it compliments.  I previously always had white wine, although especially after this trip I have aquired the taste of red wine much more. 

 Our Flight

Second stop was Bitter Creek Winery.  This place had equally good wine, one of my favorite wine was tasted here.  Towards the back of the winery they had the most amazing veiw we couldn't help but take advantage of.

The next stop was Pillsbury in Cottonwood.  They had incredible wine and some of my favorites.  One of which was actually served at the white house... yes we have expensive taste...jk. After Pillsbury we stopped by one last winery before heading to Sedona where the house we were staying was located. 
About this infamous house...Can I just say AMAZING!  The house was so rediculously outdated it was awesome. Felt like we were back in the 70's.  Kelly and I decided we were going to do our version of MTV cribs becuase we had to capture the features of this home, we have yet to see it but should be very interesting. Just outside the back of the house led to a small creek where the fish were diggin the cheese.  We got some great photos and enjoyed the fresh cool air. 

Adisyn spotted a dog on the overpass bridge above us..."Dog, Dog"

After we soaked up some of the scenery and the weather we headed into downtown Sedona for some lunch.  We walked the entire downtown area and then decided, being huge Cardinals fans, to head to a local bar and watch the game.  The girls were a little restless and Shawn was anxious to get home so we left before the first half.  Don't think we missed out though, the girls fell asleep and Shawn and I listened to the rest of the game on the radio.  We had a lot of silent screaming and air high fives, we were not about to wake up our sleeping angels.  We had a great time and the girls did too!

Captured in downtown Sedona...we will be back to see you!
