The fun activities have continued to present themselves each week. I am enjoying gallivanting all over and I am trying to get my fill because I know it will greatly decrease, or cease for a time, when our new little arrival comes and old man winter. Last week we went to Beech Hill Farm. The drive there in and of itself was so pleasant. Both sides of the road were lined with tall trees and shrubs that have started to change to vibrant yellow, orange, and red hues. I think I will have to drive that a couple times a week to fill my Cottonwood Canyon drive craving. It seemed to fill that craving quite well. Besides enjoying the sunny, warm weather at the farm, the kids loved playing on the sandhill, looking at the animals and taking rides in little wagons. There were also festive rows of pumpkins all over. Before we left we of course indulged in some delicious homemade ice cream, I will be going back for more.

Tyler, Rhyen, Caroline, and Ayden

Caroline took her first trip to the dentist. I was very impressed with the staff and the office, it was spotless and so kid friendly. Caroline was able to follow the toothpaste trail to the orange room. She crawled right up into the chair and did so well.


Another adventure to Boston filled a day last week as well. Four of us decided to go see the USS Constitution and go on the "kid friendly" boat to let the kids enjoy. Well, turns out it was not so kid friendly as they couldn't touch anything. They did well though, and luckily we found a water shuttle to take us back to where we began our 2 mile trek. We let the kids run around on the grass and enjoyed the nice evening. Then we went to Quincy Market for dinner. I can't get enough of hanging out with Caroline everyday. This has been such a delight after working full time last year. I am so glad that we have these next few months to spend with just us, although we do wish daddy could come on all of our adventures. He is working so hard and has made it to midterms..we'll let you know if he makes it THROUGH midterms. We are so proud of you!

Kara, Katie, myself, and Dee with all the darling little ones.

How fun! I'm ashamed to say that I haven't taken a drive up Big Cottonwood for some time . . . and if I don't do it soon, I will have lost the opportunity! It sounds like you are enjoying your one-on-one time. I hope that I will be able to do the same too (eventually)!

Yes, the blog picture is darling. Who took it? That picture of you in front of the USS Constitution - you don't even look pregnant!! I'm so glad that you are taking all these opportunities to see things back there and like you say to be with Caroline. Love you all.

Also, look at her with her bracelets on at the dentist. It's good that she didn't wear all of them. hahaha

I was going to make the comment the others have...you DO NOT look like you will be having a baby in a couple months. What the heck?!

You guys are having some great adventures. That is awesome that you are taking such advantage of the fun our there.

Oh, and thanks for thinking of us for the stickers. Syd is stoked!

I'm amazed that "baby C" is big enough for a happy visit to the dentist! These pics are killing me--sooo way cute! You two are really doin' the town. What great memories you'll have of Concord, Boston and the surrounding area. I haven't seen any beautiful leaves yet this season. I'm hungry for those out your way. There's nothing like those rolling hills ablaze!
