Fall Fun

It is hard to believe that October is already over! I know Christmas is going to be here before we know it and with that comes winter (note pure disgust in my voice!). I love Christmas but that is about the only thing I like about winter...I am sure I was meant to live in Florida:-) Anyway, although it hasn't felt much like fall around here the past month or so, the Callahan Crew has had a great time enjoying the fun activities that come along with picking pumpkins, Halloween and playing outside. Here are some fun photos from our life this past month:

Well, this picture is actually from September but I had to include it because I just love it so much. Here are the triplets with their bestest friends, the Jack, Will and Quinn. These boys were born just two weeks before my guys and their momma has become one of my bestest friends too:-D

At the playground having fun! Note our Colts gear:-D

You may remember our trip to Stoney Creek Farms last year to pick pumpkins...well it is so much fun we have made it an official family tradition! The kids had a fact they were having so much fun they would not stay still for a picture;-)

On our hayride to the pumpkin patch

All three did the pony rides and loved it! Makes momma happy;-)

A couple of weeks ago we got to go the triplets preschool class for a fall party with their teacher, Mrs. Truwe. We played games and decorated cookies. The kiddos are just loving school and we are so excited we decided to send them:-) Here is Harry with Mrs. Truwe:

Olivia decorating cookies with her classmates

Madeline and Harry decorating their cookies too.

Bryan and I decided to bring back our annual Halloween Party after a two year hiatus this year. Of course, these parties used to be designed for adult entertainment and now it was for the kiddos...oh, how things have changed;-) Several of our friends came with their kids and everyone had a great time. We ate food and played games and enjoyed each others' company! Here Madeline and Lila playing with crafts:

The Alligator aka. Jack riding the pony...I just thought this was the funniest picture:-)

The triplets LOVED trick or treating this year! At first they weren't too sure but they quickly figured it all out. We went with our good friend Dane and Katie and their baby girl Adelyn, who was the cutest flower I have ever seen:-D Here are Harry and Madeline trick or treating:

My two lil monkies!

And my lil elephant too!

Those were the first words out of our mouths as Bryan and I arrived in Aruba for out first extended vacation since before I was pregnant with the triplets. Needless to say, we were MUCH over due for a relaxing vacation away just the two of us:-) We decided on a six day trip to Aruba in the southern carribean and it was AMAZING! It is a beautiful place and we felt completely safe everywhere we went. Here are some (ok, alot of) pictures from the trip:

We stayed at the Marriott Rennaisance Marina in Oranjestad and it was perfect! One of the reason we chose this resort was that it has a private island that a boat takes you to when ever you want to go. The boat actually comes into the hotel lobby to pick you up as you can see here:

Here is a view from the beach at the private island...paradise:-)

Bryan and I liked to sit out at the end of this penninsula...sooooo relaxing!

Here is one of the iguanas that live on the actually see these all over Aruba.

Here is our hotel as you go in on the boat.

Heading back from a "rough" day of relaxing on the island;-)

As you come to the island from the boat...

We decided to have a really nice dinner at the amazing place called Pinchos. The restaurant is at the end of this pier so you are completely surrounded by water. It was a beautiful dinner and we got to watch the sunset as you can see in the next picture...

On our last full day there, we decided to rent a car to tour the island. It was super cheap to do but we quickly found out that was because of the type of car. Thank goodness my first car was stick shift or we would have been out of luck! Driving was definitely interesting there but I am so glad we did it.
Here are some ruins from the ancient tribes on the island.

Here I am at the Natural Bridge...well what used to be a natural bridge. It actually collapsed into the water about 2 years ago but it was still an amazing sight to see!

Bryan and a huge cactus! Aruba is actually a desert climate so there are cactus everywhere.

Here we are at the top of the rock was a great view of the island!

Here I am with the infamous car..I had to include this picture;-)

Bryan feeding the flamingos that lived on the private island...they were such cool birds and super friendly with the people!

Unfortunately, this one got scared of the storm that had come through earlier and flew out into the was quite entertaining watching the workers round this bird up:-)

This was our last view of the island as we prepared to leave for home. As you can see, a big storm was coming in so it made it a little easier to leave. Well that and the fact that after 6 days we were definitely ready to get back to our three little munchkins:-D

2 years old already...

Yes, our three little miracles are now officially two year olds! Well actually they turned two over a month ago, but as usual it has taken me forever to finally get the blog updated. I tried so hard to get it done before Bryan and I left for Aruba (pictures comine sooon!) but just ran out of time. But here they are...better late than never!

Olivia, Harry and Madeline LOVE Mickey Mouse Clubhouse so we decided to throw them a Mickey themed birthday party. It was a wonderful day and we were surrounded by our closest friends and family...such a blessing:-) Thanks so much to all who came! Amanda took pictures for us again so here are a few of our favorites from the day:

The day before their birthday party, Amanda took pictures of Aunt Leah, Nate and baby cousin Evan over at Nana's house. We took the triplets over to get family pictures also. Here are a few of those pictures too:
