So Nathan is back from hunting! And he brought the girls pink fishing poles. They are really excited about fishing and can't wait to go. Here are some pictures from his trip, the girls in their costumes, our jack-o-lanterns that only lasted 2 days before getting so moldy, and some other self explanatory picts:). I am getting a bigger tummy. Nathan is officially in the bishopric as the second counselor. Dallas and I have tickets to Oahu on the 10th for her tonsil checkup and we are going to the Laie Temple Open House. I am pretty excited about that and to get over to a mall to do some Christmas shopping hopefully. The girls birthdays are coming up as well. I am excited for the holidays.

So the girls have been cracking me up lately. One thing nice about open tiled floors is that it entertains the girls for quite a while with a bouncy ball. Sadie LOVES her new toddler bed. Every time she talks about it she says "Daddy big girl bed!" because Nathan put it together for her. She loves her Daddy. Did I mention she also won't go any where without her sunglasses, purse and 3 cell phones. Transition tips from crib to toddler bed anyone? Nap time is hit or miss with this new big girl!
These pictures are right when the girls got up one morning I am pretty sure.

Dallas's Fall break was so nice! I loved having her home for a week. I got a little teary (which is not that surprising lately) dropping her off at school again this morning. Nathan had Wednesday off and we went to the Zoo & Planetarium in Hilo (the other side of the island). It was a long drive but we made lots of stops! And we had good company. We even went the Southern way so we could go by a black sand beach and pick up Black Sand for my sister-in-law Paula:). But I totally got in trouble taking sand from the beach. A Hawaiian lady said she was going to watch me while I dumped out each little bag and that she knows how many I had. I felt like I was in 3rd grade again!! Anyways, it was really embarrassing. I guess they think that if I took the sand, there wouldn't be any left. Oh well! I will have to be more sneaky next time. The zoo had the first white tiger I have seen. And the planetarium show was supposed to be about starts. It turned out it was about Mummies:) But luckily, there weren't too many scary pictures of dead bodies. Brenna was the one with all of the questions.
On our way to church Sunday, Nathan hurt his back and seriously couldn't move for a day. He has been home recuperating but today he went to work! We are crossing our fingers he will get better. Our memory foam bed is perfect for me, but not so good for his back:(.

Here are a few pictures of Nathan hiking into a crater with his friend. He also ventured up to the summit of Mauna Kea (which is above 10,000 feet). He got a special tour in these two huge telescopes-which he was so excited about and absolutely loved it. But they tested his oxygen level up there and it was down into the 70s! Normal is above 90. That is why kids and pregnant women can't go up there, because of the decreased oxygen. He has learned so much about astronomy!
