What we have been up to...

Well - I finally found my camera cord to upload pictures - so I can finally do a post. We have had a fun couple of days around our house.
#1 - WALKER IS WALKING! finally. The past few days he has been trying so hard to be steady and not fall, but with our hardwood floors it is quite a challenging task. BUT he has finally mastered it. He is "prefering" to walk now. He will fall down and then stand up again and start walking. When he wants to get somewhere fast he crawls, but I am trying to put a stop to that.

I had this shopping cart downstairs that I forgot about - so I opened it and he loves it!

Here he is - such a big boy! #2 - The leaves are falling! That is right - the leaves are falling and we have to rake them up. Thank you Salt Lake County for bringing us bags. Great program they have going - they drop off bags and in a week come and pick them up. Last night we started filling a few bags and Walker was loving it. He wanted to help the entire time. He would take a handful of leaves and put them into the bag. It was really cute. We have also been enjoying the leaves on the ground. Walker loves playing in them and sitting outside watching them fall. Somedays it is like it is raining leaves. I love it!

I have to laugh at this picture - totally his personality.

Here he is helping mom and dad!

#3 - We have been to the see the Witches at Gardner Village! I love that place! What a fun place for the kids:) The first time we went was with Debby and Kim and their kids. It was such a fun day. Although we didn't get a ton of pictures - it was fun to see the kids get so excited about all the pumpkins and witches. p.s they have the BEST pumpkins out there!! Does anyone know if you can buy them?

Then we went again with my mom and sisters. It was a busy day there but we did everything we wanted. Walker rode on a tiny pony, went to the petting zoo, and ate lunch at Archibalds! I am so glad he has cousins around his same age. They play so well together and have so much fun on outings!

Walker and Colter - hanging out by the witches

Riding the pony at Gardner Village. Who knew they had this whole other fun section of animals!

Me, Whitney, Walker, Boston, and Ashton.

Walker LOVED this goat. He wouldn't leave him alone. If you can tell the picture is blurry on his hands because he was smacking the goat. Poor goat - he just sat there. I love the fall time and being outside when it isn't 100+ degrees!

Well we have had a busy few days - but we are so excited for Halloween and the beginning of the Jazz season!!! YAHOO!

Yay for Walker being a big boy now and walking that is so great. Looks like you guys have been up to some fun fallish stuff!

I can't remember who told us this last year, but they just throw all of their pumpkins away. Last year I went and took some close to Halloween. Like I said, I don't remember who told us, but apparently they don't care if you take them.

Love Walker's skeleton shirt. That is awesome! I guess Walker will not be wearing a bunting costume this Halloween Yippie! Congrats on that. I posted a picture of you and Kim at Gardner Village. It's way cute!

how fun TEy. Walker is getting so big, I can't believe I haven't had my chance to meet him yet!

Congratulations to Walkie-talkie! As Justin would say, if they can walk then isn't it about time they go on their missions?

Do you have your Jazz jersey washed and ready to go? I think you should write with tape on the back of your jersey "Edward" and wear it to the Twilgiht premiere.

LOOK WHO'S MARRIED!!!!! said...
