Enjoying Fall

Fall is such an amazing time of year. We enjoyed a warm day at the park. Ava loves sitting in her stroller so outings like this are really easy. Just always working around nap time.


My kids sure love Jaker's. I think this is the 3rd or 4th year in a row we've been going there. It is so awesome. We will be back again before Halloween for sure!









Another Fall favorite, that I missed out on last year, the BYU Homecoming Parade. By far the best parade ever. My kids brought their Halloween pumpkins and left with as much candy as they will get on Halloween. Such a great time with family.



I love Kallie's hand waving at the princesses.

Ava looks so big just sitting on the curb.

More Wedding

I couldn't get these pictures to add to my last post. 

Karen pulled off an amazing luncheon, especially for being out of town. She had everything so organized and we just helped a tiny bit.




Annie and I unknowingly bought the exact same dress. Ha ha! So fun.

K, seriously, the pool was incredible. Such a fun place to stay.


These two! When will they ever stop napping????

Brandon crashed on me both nights.

Ava kind of had a fever the day after the wedding, which meant lots of snuggles and having her fall asleep in bed with me for the first time ever! Luckily nothing ever came of it.

Mckinley scares me a little. I think she thinks she can just swim across the ocean. She has a little too much confidence in the pool. But she is doing great with swimming. I'm glad she loves it so much.

Lincoln and Megan's Wedding

We got to go to St. George for Lincoln and Megan's wedding. I was excited for a fun little family trip.

The kids did pretty well on the drive down. Tyler and Kallie slept for part of it, which was nice. Ava slept a little too. I was the driver on the way down so Brandon took care of the kids. Which was nice.


The place we stayed at was so nice!!! We had a blast. The pool was amazing, and it was so fun staying in a big house with family so we could spend a lot of time together.


Megan's mom arranged for babysitters during the sealing and I felt so bad for them! They survived though and didn't even look too flustered when we got back.

This was the first picture I took on the trip. Mckinley helping Kallie with her dress. I thought it was so sweet.

Jessica took pictures of the kids while we were waiting for Lincoln and Megan to come out of the temple.





Cutie pie Ava at the luncheon. Oh, I could just eat her up.

Tyler and Kallie are FIVE!

Tyler and Kallie had their 5th birthday. They were so excited!

Mickey Mouse pancakes served in bed, of course.



All they wanted to do was go to Hang Time, so that's what we did. We kept Mckinley home from school for the morning to celebrate with us. They had a blast!






We had lunch at Wendy's after. Here is Ava snarfing down a french fry.


I made them cakes (Kristen wrote their names on them) and we sang happy birthday while they happened to have a few cousins over to play.


And of course we went to Pizza Factory for dinner.


The next day Tyler was eating leftover birthday cake for lunch and was surrounded by all of his new favorite toys. Ha ha ha.

At five Tyler and Kallie still fight a ton, but play together even more. They need each other around and I love that. They are so smart and know all their letters and can write their names like champs. They still can't pronounce their r's. They love joy school and will be soooo ready for Kindergarten next year. They both get in trouble constantly for loving on Ava too much and bugging her. Tyler is still a very picky eater. Kallie full of sass but is so much fun. We love them both!
