The Month of October..
Derek's birthday was pretty low-key this year mainly because of the "youtube fan hiking ordeal".
But he did go rabbit hunting and target shooting with James & Austin.
Sage collecting hike to make smudge sticks aka lil sage bundles to make Derek's work area smell like the mountains and help him de-stress while doing homework.
Fundraiser at Chick-Fil-A for the tornado victims..
Ragnar and Taz FINALLY got along..
Science hike Saturday Pre-Thanksgiving..
It was also Gambit's first hike...
And then Thanksgiving...
EARLY EARLY birthday date for Madi to see the USWNT vs Switzerland!
JeNae: Where do you want to eat?
Me: Hey, there's sam's club.
Madi: I WANT TO EAT THERE!
The team didn't have all the star players (very upset Alex Morgan didn't come, Madi's fav.) but there were a few that did play and it was amazing! SOOO cool!
2nd half was the best!
Basically the coolest thing ever!
Bought hot coco for us, which is a scam fyi, but I kept telling myself I was paying for the experience for Madi and since dinner was only $3, I could handle $12 for 3 8oz cocos...
Coyote made out of bark from the High Unitas...
Bear made out of sticks from Yellowstone...
First year handing out candy on Halloween..
