Hiking at Riverwalk

With our cousins in town on such a beautiful autumn day, we couldn't resist heading to hike next to the Catawba River.  It was warm enough outside to wade in the river and skip rocks! I love fall in the south!

Carolina Reserve Fall Festival and Elevation Fall Festival

I was not in charge of the Fall Festival this year, and was able to just come and help set up and clean up and fill in where needed.  Which was fabulous because A-) we had family in town and B-) the new person in charge of the event was amazing and did an excellent job! The festival was the best yet!  Evin joined us at the festival while Alex was at his soccer tournament.

That evening, while Evin was at her gymnastics tournament, we went to the Fall Festival at Elevation church, so that t  Alex could have a turn at a Fall Festival, too.  They had the most amazing trunk or treat I have ever seen in person.  Each vehicle was a pinterest win!  It was dark outside and very crowded, so I didn't get very good pics at the night time fall festival.  But one of my shots turned out great!  They had tons of animals on this Noah's ark, but no flamingo.  So Molly hopped on board to make sure flamingos were saved from the flood. ;)

When we got home from the festivals, the cousins participated in one of their all time favorite traditions:  THE CANDY SWAP!

I think Ryan got more hay in his candy bag than actual candy.  It is January as I am blogging these pictures and I still found straw when I vacuumed the boys' room yesterday.

Trick or Trot 5k

Our neighborhood hosted a 5k fun run the weekend before Halloween.  Our cousins were in town, so Alex ran in the race with Andrew and Ryan.  They all did great!  And the first three finishing places went to the Scribner boys,  Andrew 1st, Alex 2nd, and Ryan 3rd.

Boy Scout Camping at Highland Games

Chad and Andrew went camping at Camp Grimes for the Highland Games.  It was very cold, but Andrew still had a wonderful time camping and participating in all of the challenges.  He couldn't decide if he liked building the fire or the hatchet throws best!

Emily's Baptism

We had the opportunity to attend the baptism of one of Molly's very first best friends.  As Molly says, she "has known Emily her entire whole life!"  Yes, all 7 years of it.  We wouldn't have missed Emily's special day for anything!

Harlem Wizards

Our PTO hosted a benefit basketball game where our teachers competed against the Harlem Wizards.  Chad took the kids while I had the opportunity to go to my aunt's 50th birthday party.  They had a wonderful and goofy time!
