Right now Josh and I are out of town and having a blast for our Halloween!
(We had to make up for missing it last year because of preparing to move the next day)
We should have some fun pictures to post in the next couple of days!
Hope everyone has a great Halloween!!

This lovely guy almost got made into mush the other day....
Josh & I were about to unload the patio set we had just gotten and Josh called me to the gate to show me this slimy yucky thing just chilling right in our path. (It was dark and I would've stepped right on him. EW!)
Josh got a broom and tried to scare him away, but he wouldn't budge. He had to be pushed with the broom .... blah! he was all squishy and yucky!
I was directed to hold the gate open so josh could push/scare him out. That's when mr toad decided he would start hopping and hopped right at me. I screamed and dropped the gate and ran away. Which was sucessful at scaring our little visitor into the bushes.
A couple of days later my dad came to visit and when I walked out to help him inside there was another toad (or the same one), hanging out in our front yard.
A few days after that Torque was in the backyard barking like a crazy dog, which he never does, so we went out to see what he was doing. He was standing barking at our new tree/bush. We thought he was crazy so we yelled at him to come inside, but a couple of minutes later he was barking again. Josh went out to find ANOTHER toad hiding back there that Torque had cornered.
We think they might be attracted to our swimming pool.... I hope not because I don't want to see anymore, and don't want them swimming around our pool!

Haunted Houses

A few weekends ago Josh & I went to a haunted corn maze / haunted houses thing out in Glendale. We went with 4 of our friends and had a great time! It was fun because one of the guys had never been to a haunted house before and he was nervous about going in them.

It was one of the best haunted houses I've been to, it actually scare me multiple times! We only got one picture from that night, and it was with this scary clown guy that was walking around out in front.....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Joshua!
He had his birthday this on the 11th and we celebrated by going out with some of our friends to the Cheesecake Factory, and then going Cosmic Bowling.

Fishing... I got so sunburned that today, two weeks later, I am still peeling. ewww
We all caught a ton of fish, but nothing really much bigger than 12". It was lots of fun and we were out there for 8 hours!
