Field Trip - Wheeler Farm

Both of the kids' classes went to Wheeler Farm for a fieldtrip. We had a lot of fun. Josh's mom and Rachael came with us, which helped when the kids were wanting to go separate ways with their classes.
 The kids were playing in this old outhouse. Then Kay told them what it was and that they are stinky. We all laughed when they simultaneously plugged their noses and said, "Pe-oo-ey!"

Happy Birthday Rachelle!

The kids were SO excited to wake up and wish Rachelle a happy birthday. Before preschool we went outside and cut some roses for them to give her before they left. So cute! While the kids were at school we went to Olive Garden for lunch with my mom, aunt Cindy, grandma, and Celeste. It was a lot of fun! (And very nice to only have to control 1 kid for a change!)

BYU/Utah Game :(

For the BYU/Utah game we headed over to the Ericson's since Josh was at the game. The kids looked SO cute in their little BYU outfits.
I gave Brynlee a bowl of Lucky Charms and she started eating them straight out of the dish. When she came up they were stuck to her face. Silly girl!
2 little cheerleaders!
Brooklyn even got into the game...for about 30 seconds. She started clapping and cheering, "Go BYU!"
Brynlee with uncle Andrew. She doesn't really like anyone to hold her except mom.

State Fair

We missed the county fair, so it wasn't an option to miss the State Fair. Josh and I have been to the fair every year since high school (except when we were on missions.) Josh's parents went with us this year and it was a lot of fun. Of course the kids loved the water:
Brooklyn really liked the animals but didn't want to go near them. Maybe next year!
Brynlee was a little hesitant and pulled back whenever we put her close. But she giggled and loved looking at them all:
Brayden, on the other hand, was touching and petting everything he could reach.
I did coax Brooklyn over to pet the bunny. She really liked the rabbits.
One giant pumpkin:
I LOVE our stroller. It's SO nice to be able to push all 3 kids at once. Since Brayden and Brooklyn are so skinny, they can even sit side by side on the little seat if neither of them want to stand. Best. Investment. Ever!

10 & 11 Months

I'm finally getting caught up on Brynlee's months. At 10 months Brynlee continues to be a doll. She is always happy and loves to be with her big brother and sister. She still has no interest in walking, although she stands and cruises the furniture with ease. She's starting to show more emotion when she doesn't get what she wants...hopefully this doesn't escalate in a few years or we're in trouble! We love you Bryn!!!
 At 11 months Brynlee is just SO fun! She continues to be interested in everything and loves to be involved. She has started wrestling with Brooklyn, which is a lot of fun. Still not walking, but we're working on it. Time is going by SO fast! Brynlee is still pretty little, but that makes it easier on me since she is literally glued to my hip all day...everyday. Luckily I kinda like this little girl!

Healing Fields

I have always wanted to go to the healing fields in Sandy, so we headed out there for family night. It was really neat to read the stories of those who died and to see all the flags. 
We went with my sister Rachelle and her husband Sean. Little Samantha slept through the whole thing.

We went to the Allman's for the BYU game 2 weeks ago. The kids play really well together so it was a lot of fun (except that BYU lost.) Here are all the kids in their BYU gear:
And of course we had to all get in our BYU jams! When these went on sale I bought them in each size so my kids could wear them for a few years. I also had planned ahead for little Jada and Brynlee. I know I'm a little biased, but they are pretty stinkin' cute!
Here they are last December. It's fun to see how much they've grown!

New Lawn Mower / New Fence

We've had quite the drama this summer with lawn mowers. Too long of a story to share here, but we finally got our hands on a riding mower. With such a big yard it has been killing us to mow it every week, especially bc our mower isn't even self-propelled. We've now mowed the lawn twice and we LOVE it! Brayden loves to ride with Josh:
Now we just need to map out the yard a little better so we can mow it in a more orderly fashion :)
I've been trying SO hard to find a fence so I can get our dogs out of the garage. I finally scored some free chain link and decided to use T-posts instead of cemented poles. It's surprisingly very sturdy and does the job. Now the dogs are out of the garage and I've started cleaning it. I'm determined to be able to park in it this winter!

Brayden has been playing baseball with Jaxon in Riverton. Jeff is the coach, so it has been pretty fun. It's been good for Brayden bc he's been playing with the 5/6 yr olds instead of the 3/4 yr olds. Here he is ready for the ball:
The swing:
I love his running face:
Team cheer at the end:
High 5's:
Brooklyn and Brynlee did quite well. Brooklyn and Claire play really well together so they really enjoyed it.
Go Brayden! Brynlee would clap and cheer every time we were cheering for Brayden. So cute!
