Hannah received a tricycle as a birthday gift in April from her Grandpa and Grandma Frese. She was pretty excited about it and this fall she has really taken off with riding it.

Gina and Maxton
I traveled to Alta Vista with my friends (Jackie Walsh, Terry Kiser, and Beth Kiser) and our 9 kids. My sisters were organizing a sand volleyball tournament (sounds kinda crazy for October!). But anyway, they needed some more players. The weather was perfect. Our feet were sore by midafternoon from running and jumping in the sand barefooted. The kids spent all afternoon at the park and played and played and played. My friends and I played on Amber's Team with her husband (Matt) and our cousin (Jeremy). My little sister, Brandy, had a team with her husband's family. Neither team won the tournament, but we still had a great time!
The kids were riding on each other's backs, pretending that they were horses. They had a blast! Their laughs are infectious.
We planted some grass seed this fall. It seems like it's a never ending task at maintaining a lawn. Hannah likes to help. She had fun spreading the straw.
Mallory has finished up with therapeutic riding for the year. They may sneak in a session or two in November if the weather is warm. Riding sessions will not start up again till spring. Granted the drive every Sunday can get tiresome....the look on her face when she gets on that horse makes it all worthwhile.
