Umm, Where's October? Part 1

I'm pretty sure every year comes standard with one, but this year it seems to have disappeared!

So, I am going through my pictures to see if I can find it...

Turns out it was a very good month!

It started out fast... Nate's new Corvette...
It was fun to drive!
We traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico with some friends...
Played games, acted silly in the mirror...
and went to the Balloon Fiesta and saw the special shapes balloons take shape!
It was SOOO good to be chilly too!
This balloon owner asked us if we wanted to climb into his basket... ummm, YUP!
You REALLY have to see this in real life...
the pictures do nothing for the massive size of these balloons!

Off to Killeen, Texas... VERY long drive.
 But TOTALLY worth it!
 We really do love traveling, especially when at the end is someone so amazing and wonderful!
 Spending some time with Dad.
One of the greatest things about homeschool...
 It doesn't matter where you are.
 We LOVE homeschool!

This boy LOVES his Daddy's watch!
 It fits him well... well someday! :-)
 Snack time.
 It is a great adventure God has led us to...
 Aren't they just so awesome!
 Little man so proud in his little boots and overalls.
Such a happy boy! He is just such a joy!

Drove back to Albuquerque, New Mexico...
 Starbucks sword fighting...

 We stayed with friends in Albuquerque. While we were there we were able to visited Old Town... very fun!

 Oreo and her best buddy.
This family is simply wonderful!
We learned that we REALLY love New Mexico food...
Sopapillas with honey and Green Chili...
Mmmm, MMmm, MMMmmm!
Even Miss Chocolate Chip loved the sopapillas with honey!

Back in the car for the trip back to Phoenix we were blessed to see...
 Snow capped mountains!
Breathtakingly beautiful!!
 We had only heard about them and saw pictures in books.

I think I need to make this a two part finding October post...
See you in Part 2!
