The best surprise ever!!!!

On wednesdsay afternoon stuart and I got of work right at the same time so we were able to walk home together. When I met him at the back gate, he said he had a surprise for me.... he said we were going to go somewhere and do something we've been wanting to do for a while... i was completely confused and had no idea what he was talking about. he said to wear my suit in case we got in the water and that threw me off. so we drove a couple blocks away, we stopped in front of a house I'd never been to and he said to stay there.... a few minutes later, he walked around the corner with this guy in his arms!!!

(sorry not a very good picture... its blurry and you can't even see his cute face... but I wanted a picture of just him!) Everyone this is Baloo!

Needless to say I was sooooo excited when stuart walked out with baloo! Baloo belongs to our friends Lacey and Seth and I had seen pictures of Baloo on Lacey's facebook and thought he was the cutest thing ever! so we got to take baloo for a little while

I jumped in the back of Tank (our truck for those of you who are not familiar with the name of our truck) with Baloo and we drove down the road to Hukilau beach where we took Baloo out to run around in the sand.

After the beach we went back home and so he could visit with our little friend Scottie.... a little sidestory about scottie, he loves dogs and if hes at home sometimes he'll ask to watch the doggie videos, we found some cool videos of these same kind of dogs that he likes to watch over and over again... so we knew he'd love to meet Baloo!We have a big grassy area right outside our apartment so we brought baloo there and let him loose! Scottie was already out there, he was a little shy at first...

But he got over that pretty quick! Dont worry.... thats a face filled with pure joy, excitement and laughter!

Scottie was so nice to share his ball with Baloo and they played fetch together! Scottie would throw the ball and Baloo would run after it and usually bring it back. =)

I think we tired Baloo out pretty good! Its a good thing Scottie can't throw it too far (dont get me wrong... he's got a great arm for a not even 2 year old! We let Baloo rest for a bit... get a drink... while scottie waited patiently

and then he got a little wagon ride

Baloo was so grateful and showed his gratitude by giving Scottie lots and lots of kisses!

Like all good things, our time with Baloo had to come to an end... so we had scottie walk Baloo back out to Tank

I'm not really sure who was walking who though...

We had such a fun time with Baloo! and can't wait to do it again! Thanks Lacey for letting us play with him!
Since we don't have kids or pets... we have to steal our friends pets and take them to play with our friends kids so we can have some fun and fun stuff to blog about! ;) but we really really did love it! and we LOVE BALOO!!!!

Happy Halloween!!! (a few days ago)

Ok, so we didnt really think that we were going to dress up until about 5 minutes before a party started for TVA residents (our apartments). We had thought about going, then thought... thats ok, we dont really have costumes or anything so we'll just skip it, then at 5 til 7 we decided we wanted some candy and the only way to get candy, would be to go to the party... so we looked at our closet and I said... we could be "bubba gump servers" Thats where I used to work. I thought I only had 1 apron still but the other one was just hiding inside the pocket! So we put on our Bubba Gump shirts, aprons, hats, and name tag and we were ready to go!
I know it wasn't very elaborate or exciting, I mean I used to where these outfits everyday! But we did what we could with what we had and in 5 minutes... not bad if you ask me!

But Below are some of our friends we saw all dressed up! Enjoy!

Here's Axel and Baby Axel... Beetlejuice and a cute little kitty:

Nick and Alysha... I'm not really sure what Nick was... he just went fishing through the freebie bin and this is what he came up with.

Another picture of Beetlejuice and his wife jenny... they're in our ward.

There was lots of good food there I just took pictures of the cute or fun stuff!

Here's a gohst... White Chocolate covered marshmellows on a stick! With itty bitty chocholate chips for eyes! Very creative! and VERY Sweet!

These were really cute too... The creepy crawly chocolate covered nutterbutters with little pretzel legs! And I think little butterscotch chip eyes!

And whats a party without worms in a mud cup?!

This is Claire... Doesn't she look so pretty?! I love the butterfly she has on her face!

This is Tanya and Rocky... Wedding Mickey and Minnie

The little Lion... I should have gotten a picture of the whole family... His Mom was Dorothy and Dad was the tin Man very cute!

And I saved my favorite for last.... The Football player, Cheerleader, and the cutest little football I've ever seen!!!

Hope everyone had a fun safe Halloween and ate lots of candy!!!
