family date night

Last night we had a family date night.  Every event was a surprise to the kids, some events a surprise to Jake & me as well.  A great time was had by all!

First off, we headed to the pumpkin patch.  We came home with lots of little & mini pumpkins.  Lily has a book report project due next week where we have to decorate a pumpkin like a character from a book of her choosing.  It should be fun! I"ll have to post that project once it's completed.

We then were heading to Panera for dinner, but saw a bunch of fire trucks parked outside of the mall.  They were letting kids tour the trucks & talk to the firemen. There were a few other emergency reponse vehicles as well.

The firemen let us know that they had more fire safety activities set up inside the mall.  We headed to Panera to eat.  Gotta love feeding a family of 5 for $1.08 thanks to a gift card!  After our bellies were full, we went to the mall.  The girls got to meet Sparky! They also got to sing & dance with him.

I am so thankful for the blessing of family!
