Trick or Treat :) Jace caught a fish ;)
Halloween weekend we went to ELko to visit SEAN GRACE and GAVIN :) Jace served with Sean in Georgia, I grew up with Grace and Gavin and McRae are just two months apart. We had so much fun hanging out with them in their beautiful brand new house! We went to marina and picniced and fed ducks while the boys fished. Halloween night we took the babies trick or treating to a few houses! We had to DRAG the dads along... but it was fun! We had a GREAT weekend and we love us some SMITHS : )
