My little round pumpkin

On Sunday walker was so happy after he woke up from his nap, so i took him outside to roll around in the leaves. He was looked so adorable crawling around in his fall jacket (he blended in so well i could hardly see him:) I am loving this warm fall weather.

Hee Haw Farms

We have been to Hee Haw farms a couple of times this fall season and it is really alot of fun. Kelty loves petting the animals and playing in the hay. I think that she is a little farm girl at heart.

Zion's National Park

Angel's Landing
The Narrows

Beautiful scenery
On our way to the Subway

The Birth Canal (worst part of the whole hike)

The coldest water I will ever feel.
Extreme repelling...ha ha.

The actual "SUBWAY"

A couple of weeks ago Matt put together a little APX retreat to Zions National Park. The boys went down and hiked Angel's Landing, The Narrows, and The Subway in just three days. Haley and I joined in on the fun for the Subway hike. The hike did require swimming in sub zero pools and the smallest repels ever but overall the hike wasn't that bad. The next apx adventure will be in Moab next weekend for those of you who missed out on all the fun:)

Happy Birthday Kelty

The TERRIBLE TWO's begin!

Ellie making her masterpiece cupcake

Walker couldn't get enough of those balloons!

Every present had to be played with before opening the next present.

Kelty and her cousin "baby Addie"

Kelty has been so excited about her "Elmo Party" ever since we made the invitations. She helped me buy all the party supplies and even made the party favors herself. For her party we started off by letting the kids frost and decorate their own sesame street cupcakes. Then we sang happy birthday. We attempted a coloring activity-- which didn't last very long due to so much sugar consumption. At the end when it came around to opening presents the kids were all getting a little cranky... the kids did pretty well considering our small family room and kitchen was cramed with 8 children(hyped up on cupcakes during regular naptime hours) 3 babies, and 14 adults... so we had to rush along the present opening ceremony. Overall, Kelty loved opening her presents and enjoyed seeing all of her friends.
Kelty wants to send thanks again to Connor, Ellie & Cody, Savanah, Ruby, Hannah, Levi, Cade, Addie, and Porter for the lovely presents and wonderful birthday!!

Utah Lake

We have been doing some Fall boating trips since we weren't here for the summer and the weather was actually really nice and the water was glassy.
