Fall Break

We had to say goodbye to the last of our tomatoes...thats right..this was our last batch and now they are gone...the snow killed them:( I don't even know what to do with myself. Our garden was like my second child...I loved to take care of it and go out and pick the tomatoes/carrots/peppers/zucchini/cilantro/cucumbers... But it was a good first time gardening adventure. Its safe to say I am an addict. I look forward to planting next year. I actually have drawn out our garden plots and made sketches of what plants need to go where and how many to plant!!!! I AM THAT EXCITED!:)
Ty and I had to go to Papa Stans pumpkin patch and find him a baby pumpkin. This is one of the MANY reasons I really enjoyed growing up on the farm....I have so many awesome memories going out to pick pumpkins. I also remember having about a million on our front lawn for sale and people would stop and pick out their favorite!!! SO FUN!
It was a bit chilly, but Ty fit right inside my jacket! So we got to cuddle most of the time.
Aunt Missy knew excatally where the baby pumpkins were....We could have been there all day looking in that huge pumpkin patch...but she helped us out and I ended up getting one for Ty and a bunch to decorate with. Thanks Aunt Missy!
I think this picture of Ty and Aunt Heather was actually taken while I was off looking for Ty the perfect bigger pumpkin to carve! Heather lives close to us in Cedar City so she is like my nanny....She watches Ty when Jayson and I go to institute or the gym! So she is SOOOO good with the Tyger!
I think Ty was trying to eat his little pumpkin...hehe what a silly dude.

Over the Fall Break we went down to spend time with my family. It was Papa Stans birthday and we also wanted to take family pictures! I think they turned out soooo awesome!

We had so much fun and I always love new pictures!!!

We also went to red rock...another reason I LOVE going home. It was such perfect weather and the rocks are sooooo beautiful!

My little baby...HE IS WALKING! So crazy. It was so amazing..Will always be a day to remember!
