Tyson's Fall Pics

We just think this little kid is the cutest thing ever! We are allowed to because we are his parents. Well, we had Mary Anne, who many of you know is just AMAZING, take Tyson's pictures. He is about 7 months in the pictures. I know, kind of a random age, but I wanted to have the leaves in them, as many of us do. We went up Provo Canyon and found a little place with lots of leaves and had a blast taking pictures of this little guy. So, here he is!Don't ask what this face is about. I don't even know! It is so funny though!

He just loves to suck on his bottom lip lately. So funny.

Good Ol' Cali

A couple of weeks ago, we got a chance to go out to Rocklin (where Ivan is from) for his little sister's wedding. We drove out on Wed. night and she got married on Sat. So we had a few days to play around and have some fun. It was awesome. They got married in the Sacramento Temple and it was just beautiful. The wedding turned out great and it was so much fun to be out there with friends and family!

We took a trip up to apple hill with Lindsey, and the Wright family and did some shopping and just enjoyed ourselves. We had to take some pictures of Tyson with the pumpkins. So Cute!
We were over by the apples and look what came out on the rollers! I didn't know Apple Hill produced Teresas and Ivans! I wonder how much they cost?
We went miniature golfing the night before the wedding and played boys vs. girls. This is Hillary, Lindsey (Ivan's sisters), and me after we all got a hole in one!

The happy couple! Yay Hilly and Eric!

Tyson is crawling!

Well, it's official. Tyson is crawling! Just the other day, he took his first few real-boy crawls. Up until this point, he was just army crawling. He started doing that at about 6 months and he is dang fast at it. We have been trying to teach him how to really crawl, and have probably looked ridiculous a couple times down on our hands and knees, but he finally got it! He is still pretty slow at it, and will usually take a few real crawls, then plop on the belly and army crawl (because he is so much faster at that), but he is getting it. He has also started pulling himself up on things. He has been trying for the past little while, but it has been in vain. Just a few days ago though, we were getting ready to take off for California and I turned around and found him like this!

What a stud! He is getting so strong and just growing up too fast! We are so proud of our little man! We love you Ty! We are not excited to further baby proof the house though.

Fall, Fall, Fall

I just have to blog about this because Ivan is sick of hearing me say it. Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite part of the year! There are many reasons, here are a few: the beautiful colors of the leaves (I love it!), this is the time of year that orange season starts (for those who don't know, I am pretty much obsessed with oranges, I could eat them all day, every day), pumpkin time (I love pumpkins! Love the squash, the seeds, and definitely the desserts they yield), Halloween (possibly is my favorite Holiday), the most perfect weather all year round, and my Birthday! Could it get any better than that?! I submit that it cannot! Oh, I love Fall! What a wondrous time. I just had to blog about the many little blessings that fall time brings into my life.
Ives and I took a hike up in the canyon the other day. It was super fun! We went to Stewart Falls. It was a beautiful hike and very enjoyable. The falls were great. We think they were a little low on the water, but they were still very pretty. We didn't get that great of a picture because the camera died. We took Tyson and he had more fun than we did! He was just jabbering the whole time. It was so cute! This kid loves the outdoors and so do we.Picture of the Fam on the way up.
Looking down the canyon. What gorgeous colors!
I thought this hillside was just beautiful.

The falls. Sorry again for the picture! You have to look very close. I didn't realize the battery on the camera was so low!
