Today for our little playgroup we were able to go tour the Bountiful fire station. It was a fun little adventure. Payton and Lexi weren't too sure about it when we first got there but they soon warmed up to the whole idea! they sat in the HUGE fire truck and got cool little fire hats. We were so amazed at the hard work these people do for us. We learned that when they put on all their gear it weighs over 80 lbs. and it's like over 19 degrees hotter or something like that. We are so grateful for all they do for us the EMT's and Fire fighters are true heros! We are so happy they are there for us. They had to help payton when he was one. they came to our rescue after he stopped breathing and had a seizure. he road in the ambulance then and they got us to the hospital safely. That wasn't very fun at the time but today was a fun experience seeing the inside of the ambulance and fire trucks. We also saw an original 1919 fire truck, it still works and everything! after we were able to play at the park called fireman's park. It was a fun day. We love our playgroup!
my sweet little monkey GIRL Lexi. I emphasize GIRL because even with her flower and tutu people still called her a "cute little boy" come on i know she has a girl face, right?
Payton and Lexi were both monkies for Halloween, we let them choose and they both chose the same thing. Their cousins Emma and Avery came trick-or-treating with us and they were a princess and butterfly. we went around gami and gampi's new neighborhood in Kaysville.
Notice the dark hair? no it's not a wig (my dad thought it was) i really am dark now. i decided to die my hair Halloween and not just for the holiday. i still look in the mirror and have to take a second look cuz i'm not use to that person in the mirror.
oh man i look like a pumpkin! only a bit more to go until little baby boy is born! i can't wait!

thanks love you all! oh and i'll update the house picture soon. it had just finished melting snow and so the yard doesn't look as nice as usual.
today after church we walked out and i though hmmm. what a perfect (tiny bit hot) fall day! let's take pictures. so we went up to muller park canyon and a darling building by our house and took some fun family fall pictures. (literally fall) after all our fun lexi took a spill and landed in the tire rim. ouch and funny thing i didn't even mean to take this picture! she was all black from the grease, but all is well now.
Sense we just got back from super hot 94 degree weather in california i had to take pictures of the very next day we got back. SNOW! so here are a couple pictures of the kids in the first snow fall of this season. lexi was scared she didn't know what to think.
we just got back from an amazing trip to newport coast, California. we were there for 8 days. we stay in the Marriot resort just right off the ocean. I need to thank Brandon's parents for the opportunity to stay with them every 6 months in their time share. without them we wouldn't get to do our fun cali trips that often. Next i have to thank my mom for the 4 airplane tickets. we were so lucky to be able to fly for free, and not have to drive the 10 hours. (didn't sound fun being prego) plus any chance payton and lexi can fly on gami's airplanes we'll take 'em! they love to fly. and last but of course not least i need to thank my brothers brock and tyson, and sister megan for sharing time with us to make our cali trip even better,and jon and jin we miss seeing all you guys! we were able to go and visit tyson and megan and their kids aiden and liam at their house and eat a very very DELISOUS cake megan made! then they invited us for a fun cali beach bon-fire! thanks so much everyone for everything what an amazing and relaxing trip!
we were able to go to disneyland for the whole day and california adventure. what a fun time that was. we were there from open to close and the kids enjoyed every minute of it! i was so tired by the time we got back to the condo, but it was worth every smile and laugh! oh and lexi didn't like the characters very much she was terrified, but minney was a good sport and hurry and got a picture with us even though lexi was screaming at the top of her lungs!
we also went to the beach 2 full days and went boogie boarding and body surfing. and yes i did it too even though i'm giant pregnant! we built sand castles and barried uncle chris in the sand, we are a total beach family so any time the chance comes up for us to be beach bums we'll take it! one day we also went to Korea town in L.A. our sister in law is from Korea so we went there to enjoy a fabulous Korean BBQ. Yummy! if you've never had korean bbq you need to try it!
the rest of the time we just enjoyed each other's company and the pool. serious it was a much need vacation for all of us. and now were back in beautiful cold snowy utah. here are some pictures to help you get a small glimps of our trip. we sure are spoiled!
