Mountains and Pumpkins

Last saturday was a fun filled day. We took Kolton up to the mountains for the first time. We didn't go too far up, but it was still a nice trip. It still amazes me that we live so close to the mountains, but are only able to see them a few days a year since the smog is so bad here. All in all it was very relaxing.

When we got home, I thought it would be fun to paint our pumpkins (I decided to paint instead of carve them because I thought it would be more fun to do with Kolton). Kolton didn't know what was going on...I mean he's only 4 months....what was I thinking? Despite the mess and need for a bath afterwards, it was a fun time.

Getting ready..not quite sure what's going on

Here we go!

Working so hard!

Ok, getting bored...15 seconds later :)

Tired after a long day!

Pumpkin Patch

A couple weeks ago we took Kolton to his first pumpkin patch. He had a great time and was pooped by the time we left.

Kolton and Mommy

I have been blessed to have the opportunity to stay home with Kolton this year. I LOVE it!! There are days where I miss teaching and working, especially the social part of it, and think it would be a whole lot easier then being home, but I would not trade it for anything. I love being able to see Kolton grow and develop...from rolling from his tummy to his back to learning to grab toys and stick them in his mouth to the giggles. Being a mommy is wonderful and amazing!

One of the things we enjoy doing during the day is going for walks to the park:

Here's some pictures of Kolton at 3 months...

Kolton's Blessing

On September 13th, Kolton was blessed by Ryan. Being as this is our first child, we were both pretty nervous. You want it to be special and even though you know it will, it is still nerve-racking, especially for the father. Despite our nerves, the blessing was perfect and the spirit was very strong. Ryan did a wonderful job, knees shaking and all. :) I am so grateful for a husband who holds the priesthood. Kolton also did a great job... was awake for it and didn't fuss or cry at all. It is a day that I will remember!

We were surrounded by loving family and friends for Kolton's big day. My parents and brother flew in for the weekend. I LOVE when I get to spend time with my family.

Catch Up Time

Well I have decided I'm not a very good blogger since it has been about 2 months since my last post. I thought I would play catch up on what our little family has been up to lately. Enjoy!
