It's not Autumn until we take our annual trip to Plumper Pumpkin Patch!  This year we found the fastest slide.  The pics explain it all!  Portland is seriously so pretty this time of year.

She's 7...

Kate turned 7 going on 16!  And the thing she wanted most was an ipod Touch!  I guess its better than requesting a phone, but seriously the girl is 7 and she has already grown out of asking for toys. The best part is Zach's reaction and the look on dad's face, that reminds me of a look his dad(Grandpa Marty) does. Brooke was pretty shocked too. Too funny! Kate gives us all a run for our money. She loves dance, mac and cheese, shopping, make-up, jewelry, pocket bacs, american girl doll anything, and hanging out with her friends.  She is my go to for when I need help and is usually pretty happy to do anything to help out around the house. She loves to tease too! Especially Zach and Ryan. That's the spunky side of her.

Her actual birthday fell on a school day so her friend Sally, who also happens to have the same birthday, and her ate lunch with the counselor at school, which is a special treat.  Sally's mom, Jenny, brought the girls Subway. I think it made having a birthday on a school day pretty great!

This year is also an odd birthday for kate so we celebrated with cake at Grandma's with all cousins.  Happy Birthday Kate!
