Now that the leaves are falling and we have all ready had a small bout ot snow in our mist I Just wanted to post a few Photos of our summer 2010 adventures this year.. it has been a busy and fun summer! Aaron has been loving our new boat and would have literally been on the lake every day... had we only the time! We did a lot of swimming, a lot of boating, some landscaping, don't even get me started on what has to be still done there:( all in time I guess. We went camping , roasted marshmellows in the canyon, parades, picnics..ect... We were outside enough that we were all actually sporting a little tan, of course that has faded now... and I am morning the loss of our summer. We do love fall though and riley is so excited for halloween:)
I just love little sweet moments of fun that we have with Ry guy! He is so cute and fun and I truly enjoy him. Tonight he was playing with the camera and wanted to take our picture....with the peace sign....so funny. And I think he did pretty good;) Then he wanted one of all of us....It was so fun, Jax was in bed so he missed out but lets be realistic...not possible if he were awake!
We affectionately call Jax the screamin demon...He spends about 80% of the day screaming or crying to get whatever it is he may need and honestly I'm running out of ideas! But thank goodness he is so blasted adorable. I'm losing my marbles, slowly but surley but dang he is cuTe!....proof in the following photos, EnjoY
This last weekend we had a little family reunion with my family..My mom and Hunter, My sister Summers and her boys and Granny all came to stay with us. We had a blast! It was Lehi Round-up week which is so fun we went to the parade the park and Rodeo. Aaron took Caden and Hunter paintballing, and we took tin foil dinners to the canyon and rosted smores. We dont get together all the time so it was great to see everyone and spend some quality time together! Her are a few snapshots from the last few days.
So over Memorial Day we headed to Delta with all of Aaron's Family. We had a great time 4 wheeling, hiking, exploring, digging! We dug for Tralibites that have been imprinted in mud for thousands of years, found crystal's in topaz mountain, Uncle Miles saved Riley from drowning at the Hotel pool...You know just a good time! It was a really a great family weekend! Thanks to Grandma for putting all together for us. So while we were there we had a little birthday party for Jax at the local bowling alley. The cousins loved it and we had pizza ( Pretty good Pizza from this little hole in the wall joint) and cake and ice cream...Jax dug into his very own bunt cake and we practicly hosed him down in the bathroom! He loved it!
Aaron and I took just Riley to Disneyland back in October and we had such a sweet time with him...It was so fun to see his face light up with excitement and of course he LOVED seeing Lightiing McQueen and Mater....It was so fun for Aaron and I!
I'm just getting these pictures posted from Christmas...We went to Mesquite and stayed and Grandma and Grandpa Woods for Christmas and got to visit Grammy too. We had a great time and We love to see the magic of Christmas through our little childrens eyes...I love these little years. Riley was really excited this year and it was so fun! Here are a few photos...
Riley describes any thing that is rough as Sharp...So his favorite blanket after one million washes is now SHARP.... Daddy's facial hair is Sharp. My legs the other night when we we cuddling on the couch...Sharp;) And he thinks being sharp means you work...AKA daddy was allways working on our house and so he was SOOO Sharp, so when he felt my legs he says mommy you are Sharp because you work so hard! Cute...
Also the other Sunday Aaron was holding Riley on the couch watching basketball and Riley looks up at him and says
"When I am big and you are mall..(small) I will hold you Daddy."
Okay...I have been off my blog for so long...but we are still here! We have finished...well kind of...right? For those who know us we will allways have projects to do! My advice to all is if you can avoid it....never build a home! I have been comparing it to a new baby...the last few months are so long and the whole time you are kinda onry and tired and wonder why you got your self in that predicamint in the first place! Then you give birth..or finish the home and you are happy and forget how bad it was fairly quickly after the fact. So that being said here we are and we are loving it! We love our new house and are just know starting to feel setteled, its fun. We like our new nieghborhood...but do miss our Traverse Mountain friends though. We like being closer to things here in Lehi, rec center, library etc... Aaron has worked so hard for the last three months and I am so glad he can relax a little now and recoupe. He did such an amazing job for us and I am so proud of his work ethic and his fearless spirit, I love him. Here is how our babies are doing...
Updates: Riley turned 3...We had his Party at Chucky Cheeses..He loved it! Fiesty as ever Funny as ever Adjusting well to new house
Jax 9 months old Loves FOOD...any food, and must have mouth full throughout whole meal Only Grunts and screams when mad Puts his little chubby arms to the side and lifts his chest when he gets mad..so funny Got his first tooth on the LR bottom about 2 weeks ago Sits very well and rolls all around No crawling though.... Sleeps really well and is really sweet Here he is at Brothers 3rd Birthday Party..
Our Lives are crazy and full of unexpected ups and downs, Mostly clear skies ahead so we are holding on and trying to learn how to dance in the rain.....(just in case)Aaron and I have been married for 10 amazing years..Aaron is and will allways be my true love! We have a 2 sweet little baby boys Riley who is 4 and Jax Landon 21 months old and they have totally turned are world upside down for the absoulute better. Having them has made us both better people. We attened school and lived in Las Vegas for about 5 years and we have lived in Utah for about 5 years now.I work part time(2 days a week) as a hygienist and Aaron works for the city of Salt Lake. Things are going great with the occasional bump in the road (to keep us on our toes).... but we are just enjoying life, friends and family, We feel so blessed.
