Next was Ashton's class. We decided to make sugar cookies and let the kids decorate their own with pumpkin icing and sprinkles. It was a huge hit with all the kids.
Here he is being pulled around by Papa Monkey in his new hockey bag.
Kaleigh had a great party! Katrina did a fantastic job with everything from decorations to fun and festive foods to entertainment for the kids. Kaleigh didn't wear her costume for her own party but the rest of the kids did. They all had a great time and LOVED the hay ride around the neighborhood thanks to Uncle Jessie! :-)

She was even carrying her clipboard with all the places she was supposed to check on and mark off the list.
By the time we arrived, the rain had stopped and it was just cold. The kids were excited to be away from school but also a little whinny that it was cold out. We did our tour through the animals, pumped water at the well, had story time in the little cabin and ended on a hayride. The kids loved it! After we got back, we went back up the hill and picked our pumpkins and then the teachers decided we would load back up and have lunch at school because it was just too cold and wet to sit outside and doing the picnic that was planned. :( It was a fun time, despite the elements, and I was thrilled to have gotten to enjoy it with Maddie!

We went our last day at sea relaxing by the pool. After breakfast, we went straight there and stayed there until time for dinner. The pool wasn't really big, but Ashton and Maddie enjoyed it.Ashton even started just swimming around without his shark float. Alex and I were both very suprised and thrilled. :-)As you can see, Maddie wasn't having a good time too! They even had lunch poolside! The girl next to us was painting her nails and offered to do Maddie's. Of course, Maddie was all for that! We had another nice dinner and then called it a night. We were BEAT after our lazy day! This little pig was holding our chocolate when we came back after dinner.
