Austin's first bike ride without training wheels!

Tyler helped Austin try out his bike without training wheels and he picked it up incredibly fast! Check out the video.  Austin has been riding a balance bike since the end of July and that helped him figure out balancing.  I highly recommend them!

 We also had another fun playgroup of horseback riding at the Plummer's Ranch.  They also had a pony to ride but both boys opted to ride the big horse.
Blake rode like a champ as well.  We also got to see some cows, chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigeons, and pet the ponies.  They had two 3-month old miniature ponies that were adorable!  I want a pet pony!

Countdown Begins

Here I am at 32 weeks and 2 days......If you saw a picture of Jamie, my older sister, pregnant with her 6th kid at 40 weeks you're going to be in shock since her belly was sticking out about half as far as mine is...But trying to stay positive.  Here comes the holidays!!!

Did you know that today is an awesome amazing day???!!! I had not a clue until I left the gym after a great RPM workout and had a text on my phone from Tyler.  The text read,"Where were you 2,008 days ago today at this very hour?!"  The 2008  caught my eye since that was the year we were married and sure enough I did some math in my head (I mean on my phone calculator) and sure enough 2,008 days is 5 1/2 years and 5 1/2 years ago we were married! 2,008 days ago we were married in 2008! Isn't that the coolest thing ever?  Tyler is so good at reminding me of special dates from the past and I usually have to think hard and guess a few things before I know what he's getting at.

Here's a little throwback picture from 2011...I don't have any older pictures of my computer sadly...from we'll just pretend!  Happy 2,008 days! Love you Tyler!

Halloween 2013

 We started off the Halloween month a few weeks ago by attending our annual adult Halloween Party that my friend puts on every year.  Last year it was at my house, so I was grateful she took over the tradition again.  It was a lot of work!  I am a belly dancer and Tyler is a snake charmer.  Look closely and you can see the snake in mid air while he's playing his flute!  I'm glad Tyler was nice enough to go along with my idea.  At this angle it looks more like I have a beer belly hanging over!
 We also carved pumpkins, although it ended up just being me for a while since neither Austin or Blake wanted to help scoop out the seeds.
 At least it looked like they participated since they are in the pictures! haha.
 After the carving was done Tyler pulled out his drill and Austin came running to help.
 Our cool batman pumpkin!
 On Halloween night we went trick or treating with the Simmons.  It was fun to watch the kids go from house to house. I mean run from house to house.
 Kai and Blake riding in style!  It was so nice having them in the wagon!
 Austin was a 80's style ninja turtle.  He was just a little excited to get started
This cat was outside someone's house and the head moved back and forth.  Austin decided it needed to be attacked and Makayla told Austin that he was her hero!  So cute!  And now we have a HUGE bowl of candy that looks like it will last a whole year.  We'll see.  Happy Halloween!
