I've got a problem.

Yep, thats a Dora toilet seat wrapped around him. I still don't know how he got it on. But with a little ingenuity, we got it off. And he and the seat are still in one piece. He was a little worried, and it didn't help that we couldn't stop laughing.

Lucy with her first fish.

Abe and Lucy and I went with grandpa up to his cabin, and took Lucy fishing for the first time. She loved it, as long as she was catching fish. Luckily she was the only one catching anything. She caught two and the rest of us had few bites but that was about it. We took one them back to the cabin and pan fried it and the kids loved it.

Abe Pretending he caught the fish. We also went for a 4-wheeler ride

Pumpkin Picking

The Great Pumkin

I told you it would be a long time in between posts and then they would come all at once. On Monday we went to the pumpkin farm and let the kids pick out some pumpkins to carve. They had a blast wandering through the vines and trying to find the perfect pumpkin. Mostly it was just ones that were small enough for them to carry. We love this time of year.
Lost in the maze.

Hiking the Grotto

Hello Everybody!

We went on a hike this last week to the grotto waterfall in payson canyon. It was kind of sad because the kids kept saying things like 'this is so fun we should do it more often'. I guess we need to get into the great outdoors more. Does hanging out in a cabin count? Anyway as usual we have more pics of our kids. Notice the sweet eyeshadow on Lucy and Jude.(he had a little help from his sister with that one) It rained all night and morning before we went so they were all muddy. Especially Jude who liked to crawl on all the logs and walk in the creek.

As you can see, I haven't excactly been on top of keeping the blog up-to-date. It will probably be a few weeks in between posts. But that shouldn't stop anyone from checking back everyday, just to see our smiling faces. Anyway, i've decided to post cute or interesting pictures on the sidebar. As I update those I will leave them on our picasa sight which you can get to at Go ahead and check out our other albums also. Enjoy!

Jude's 2nd Birthday

This is at the Parade in the morning.

Jude turned two. We had a birthday party on the 9Th, that also coincided with Salem City Days. Just about everybody we are related to were there. We rented a snowcone machine and finished the night with fireworks in the rain, mingled with lightning. It was spectacular.

Abe's Tooth

Yes, it finally happened. Abe lost his first tooth. He has been waiting forever to lose a tooth, being one of the few in his kindergarten class not to lose one by the end of the year. I wish i had a picture of his face when I first pulled it out, because it was a mix of shock and awe, mingled with excitement and surprise. (and any other adjective you want to throw in there) But I guess this one will have to do.
