The Artist

Today Bobby officially became an artist. He has completed his first canvas, and I must say that I am very proud of him. We already have a place picked out in his room for it! If you would like to commission Bobby for your own piece of art, please let us know:) I can't wait to do these every few months and see the progress that he makes...

Pumpkin Time

Yesterday we went to Hillridge Farm with the Parks family. We did this last year, and everyone had a great time again. The boys, Bobby and Carson, were really able to enjoy all of the activities this year. The huge slide, hay maze, all of the animals, and of course the wagon pulled by a tractor. Here are some pictures, and I put one from last year too. It is amazing how quickly they have grown.

Down the slide with Mommy

And down again with Daddy....no fear!

Mountain Time Fun

Last week my parents rented a cabin in Foscoe, NC. This is just outside of Boone, NC, near Grandfather Mountain. Jenni, Carson, Bobby and I all joined them for a week in the mountains. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't perfect, but a great time was had by everyone regardless. In fact, it forced all of us to relax and rest more than we probably would have otherwise. Sam came up for the weekend, but Jon was unable to make the trip due to work obligations....

We spent time hiking to the cool waterfall near our cabin, playing outside, making smores by the fire (both inside and out), visiting the local towns and trekking up Grandfather Mountain. I can't thank you enough mom and dad for such a wonderful week!

Thanks again Mom and Dad!
