Lake Almanor, Haircut and Back to Work

For our last hurrah before I headed back to work was to go an enjoy sometime as a family in Lake Almanor. Before we headed out of town, Uncle Chris cut Parker's hair. No more curls:( Anyways we enjoyed taking the boys to the playground, fishing and watching the Giants. Tim, Tania and Corey came to visit last weekend. It was so much fun carving pumpkins and watching the Giants win the final game to go to the World Series. I started back to work Monday. Not only was it hard to go back, I received a phone call at 5 in the morning stating that the water pipe had broken at daycare so I had to find alternate care for the boys. Luckily Budge was able to stay home with them. Nothing like that news on a first day back. Hope everyone has a great Halloween!

Playground fun!

No more curls!

Running through the pine needles!

Pumpkin Patch

What a great weekend! Budge and I got to have two date nights while Grandma Linda and Aunt Kim watched the boys. On Friday, Budge was hosting the Telluride Film Festival in town which was awesome. Saturday we headed to a local winery in Cottonwood for our first annual save the music fundraiser for my school. What a great event. Cannot wait for next year! As far as family things, we took Parker to the Coleman Fish hatchery for the return of the salmon festival. He loved watching the huge salmon try to jump out. On Sunday, we headed out to the pumpkin patch. Parker was more interested in the wheelbarrow than looking for a pumpkin. Maybe next year:) The only other news is that I start work one week from today. 6 weeks flies by. Hope everyone enjoys the week a head.

Looking at the fish

Driving the tractor!

He loved the wheelbarrow!

Trying to pick up this huge pumpkin. What a character!

Wanted to ride in the wheelbarrow after he found the first pumpkin!
Me and the boys. So hard to get a toddler to take a picture.

One more try and no success. Oh well!

Budge and the boys. Once again Parker decides no to look at the camera.

Colton and mom!
Our family portrait attempt!
Train ride of course!
Play yard with a wheelbarrow. Might be a good Christmas present.

My life story now. Feeding a 5 week old and watching Parker run around like a crazy man. Won't ask for anything else.

One Month Old!

I have been lacking on my blogging. Lots of things have been happening around here that I have hardly anytime to look at the computer. Recently, my grandfather, otherwise known as "Poppy" passed away. He is in a better place now and lived a wonderful 87 years. He was able to meet his great grandchildren, travel the world with my grammie and was actively hiking and playing tennis until the end of July. Luckily, he did not have to suffer long. He will be missed! I will post some pictures on another blogging day.
On a happier note, Colton is a growing machine. He is already a month old and is starting to track moving things. He watches his older brother and Parker loves to show him things along with helping him stop crying. I feel very blessed to have these two wonderful sons. Now only if I can get Colton to sleep longer than three hours before I head back to work:) Won't that be nice. Parker has been spending oodles of time with Budge since I have been gone. Such a great dad. Fishing seems to be the only thing Parker wants to do these days. Here are some photos. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend.

Quite the handy man!

Fishing in Great Grammie's fountain. No luck!

Fishing in Clover Creek pond. Caught it with his own cast.

Ready to fish Lake Almanor! Goofy picture!

Nap time with the tackle box.
Playing with Colton in his big boy bed!
I will take more pictures of Colton. He is a cutie!
