Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Pumpkin Patch 2015

Every year we have a tradition to go to the Big Orange Pumpkin Farm as a family. We have gone every year since Preston was a baby. This year they moved the location, but still had a lot of the same things. The kids really enjoy feeding the animals, running through the hay maze, riding the hayride and eating hot dogs for a picnic. It was a bit toasty, but we had a great time and picked out our pumpkins to carve this year!
Kelsey enjoyed playing in the dirt

Preston enjoyed jumping over the pumpkins

A couple of weeks ago we took a family trip to the Arboretum with Stephen's family. Mimi, Papa, Aunt, Steph, Uncle Gene, Vivi, Leo and Inna all joined in the pumpkin adventure! They do such a nice job getting it set for the Fall. The amount of pumpkins is amazing, so major photo opportunities! The weather did not say, "Fall" quite like the decor, it was a bit warm, but never-the-less we all had a nice day! After capturing about every photo combination possible, we hit up Uncle Julio's for some much needed grub on our way home! Nice to have family close to share in these fun times!
