Giant Sized

This weekend we drove to Barnesville, Ohio for the amazing Pumpkin Festival to see...

King Pumpkin!!

But mostly to see my aunt and uncle that were visiting from Wyoming.
We've always been closest to the Athey's in our family because they lived a few streets away from us growing up, and Pam babysat me when I was little every day. They have 5 boys, we have 5 girls (and 1 boy:). And I've missed my family a lot lately so it was so nice to see close family.

And they bought me a King sandwich. How nice of them.

I thought I would give a little update. We are still in Ohio and I love my job!! I cannot believe the difference it makes in your life whether you like your job or not. I work with students with autism and it is the best job in the world. Matt also loves what he does and sometimes can't get enough of it so we feel extremely blessed.

Other things.
I played with these for a few days this summer while my sister and brother-in-law got tan.

Matt and I also hit 1 year of marital bliss... First year is paper.

We went mountain biking a few times this summer, and now I have a giant bruise on my leg to prove it.

We spent an awesome vacation with Matt's family in the Duluth-ish area in Minnesota by Lake Superior.This is Eric and Catherine.
My little sister finally went off to college. She's getting so big.

We became OSU fans. Purely for two reasons. We don't like being egged or called names or having our tires slashed. And, now I can wear jeans on Friday while wearing a sports shirt... Go Buckeyes!

My wonderful sister Monica and her husband James and family came to visit this weekend! I love being closer to someone in my family, even if the rest of them are so far away.
We spent Saturday at the Delaware (Ohio) County Fair.

This is something the hillbillies call bus racing. Long buses from the dregs of dump yards drive around in figure 8's until they hit into each other.

This is what I call a fat baby.

... It's funny

I think that's a good enough ending right there.
