First Haircut

I took Alanna to get her hair evened out so that I could continue to grow it out. Little did I know she would end up looking like Lloyd Christmas (think Jim Carey from Dumb and Dumber).
I'm not really sure what the hair cut lady was thinking when she cut the bangs. They're definitely short and kind of choppy. Oh Well!

Weekend Away

Keith and I got a chance to get away for the weekend. We decided to drive up north and see all the fall colors. We ended up stopping off at the place where Keith proposed---10 years ago! It was neat to see the place again AND to see our initials carved in the wood from 10 years ago. You'll notice that we had to "freshen up" the S.T., but you can totally see the K.R.
After our drive up north, we stopped off in Grand Haven and spent the night in a really cute Bed and Breakfast.
Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa Ritsema, for watching Caleb and Alanna!

Picking Pumpkins

We visited a local farm/pumpkin patch. The farm had animals for the kids to see and "pet." They also had pumpkins of various shapes and colors for the kids to choose from. Yes, that's a green pumpkin in the wagon. Caleb insisted that that was the one he wanted. No matter how much we told him that he should find a big, ORANGE pumpkin, he refused.

Go Blue!

In preparation for this weekend's Michigan Vs. Michigan State game, here are Keith and the kids for their annual Michigan picture.
