What time is it? It's Bean time...it's a vacation..
It's that time again for a vacay with the Beaners. Are you tired reading about them yet? Too bad! We decided to meet in Phoenix since we figured it was October and the weather would be to our advantage. Within minutes of checking into our house, I almost stepped on TWO scorpions! What a way to start a vacation. I think one of the best parts of this trip was "the wager". Now, we met the Beans in Iowa where Jon and Aaron did Podiatry school together. This is where the wagers started. All because Jon was a Bears fan and Candace was a Packers fan. Every year they have a bet on who will win and whomever loses has to do something agreed upon. One year it was a NASTY shake...and not a good kind, it had everything in it that they could find in their fridge. He almost barfed...or maybe he did. It was so long ago I couldn't remember. This year the bet took on a new meaning. If the Bears lost, Jon would have to wax his chest, if the Packers lost, Jon would be doing her makeup "really bad" and posting pictures all over facebook. Not really a fair bet if you ask me, but I am not the one betting so it's all on them! Well, the poor Bears. It seems that they just can't catch a break when it comes to these bets. Oh gosh, it was so flippin funny! Poor Jon! I would totally put up pictures of the "wager" but I don't want to embarrass him. Let's just say we have it well documented and I really think I could do this for a living. Don't worry, the kids were already in bed when we started bring out the wax! We went to the zoo, went out for dinner, went to a GHETTO inside amusement park. The kids loved it, and didn't care that it really wasn't that great. \
On Saturday night we met up with the Freestone's. He also went to school with Jon and Aaron and we all lived in the same apartment complex. It was so good to see them and their not so new baby.
Can you believe all these children belong to only three couples?
Darrick and Rebecca
Zach LOVES Candace
The other best friends
These two are seriously so cute together. They are little besties too! Don't you just love the picture Aliece drew?
Ella is such a sweet baby. She only gets up maybe twice a night and loves her brothers and sister. She rarely cries and is probably just one of the most cutest babies in the world! We love her so much!
Jake the Snake
Jake is getting to be a little daredevil. He loves Spongebob and Diego and playing with his brother and sisters. He talks so much and gets a little wild at times but is such a doll.
Zach loves to draw...and draw...and draw. He can be found many days with his pencil and tablet doing letters and pictures. He loves kindergarten, trucks, transformers and playing until the sun goes down. He rarely sits still and is probably one of the sweetest boys in the world!
Hannah's new obsession is Webkinz. She loves taking care of her "virtual pet" and is still a barbie girl. She loves her baby sister and is constantly holding her and helping her mom with her. She is doing GREAT in school and loves reading.
