Autumn and Water

We went to another splash park. It was a lot of fun. This time I met up with a friend who babysits a 10 month old every Fri. so we thought it would be fun for both kids...but the 10 month old only liked the water when it shut off and there was a puddle to play in. (Unfortunately I didnt get any pictures of her!)
Checking out the scenery:Playing with the seals:She loved the water shooting up out of the ground.(Notice the cute twins in the background? They were fun!)(More twins in the background...)

Weston's First Adjustment

My brother is a chiropractor and while we were in Texas we had Weston adjusted a few times. He was a champ and looked like he really enjoyed himself! Autumn never liked being adjusted...even when she was 6 weeks old, or now- she has never liked it. But of course, my "perfect" little man didn't make a peep and even smiled for us.
Feeling his spine: (maybe he looks a little unsure in this picture...but he never cried or showed any discomfort or dislike to his adjustment)

Adjusting the hips:Some tool used for adjusting...

He is such a good sport about everything!

Splash Park with Autumn and her 2 cousins

The other day my sister in law and her 1 year old daughter and my sister and her one year old son joined Autumn and I at a local mall where there is a childrens play area and in the middle is a little splash/water area. It was a lot of fun. I can't wait to go again, but to a different one.
Here is Autumn playing in the water:
My nephew was not all that you can tell from the above photo and the next couple of shots. He is as my sister says, "An observer." He liked sitting just outside the splash area and watching all the kids.But with some coaxing by his mom he made it into the water a few times. (But he loves the pool!)
Here is my sister in laws little girl. Don't be fooled- she is 11 months old, even though she looks older! She loved the water and it was hard to keep her out!

It was a lot of fun to let the kids move around and play in the water. Autumn enjoyed all the space and freedom. If the water shot up higher than her she didn't play in it any longer. She liked the small little water spraying up from the ground.

More of our Texas Trip

We did a lot while we were in Texas. Lots of eating out, shopping, and playing in the yard. The weather was always crummy in the morning, so we would cancel our big plans (like going to the grassy knoll or Six Flags) and just hang out. It was relaxed and a perfect way to spend our anniversary and Drew's birthday. Plus! We loved being a home when my dad came home from work, Autumn was always so excited to see him!

When the sun was out we would pull out a kiddie pool for Autumn. She had a lot of fun in it. One day we put Weston in it, he wasn't so sure. He is so fair we had to keep his shirt on! We went shopping at Sam Moon's (twice), Target (twice), Wal-Mart (twice), Best Buy, Khols, and Cutie Patoodie. Here is Autumn (and Weston) in Target.
Did I mention we went out to eat? Almost everyday? It was quite a change for us. But we won't deny we enjoyed the tasty food. Here is my dad, Weston, and then Autumn at Texas de Brazil. We went there for lunch on Drews birthday. It was something we have craved for a long time, there is a similar restaurant in Trolley Square in SLC that we love to go to.
The service is a little slow for Autumn. We ate at Chick-Fil-A...mmmm. (we have them here, but the closest one to me is 20 min away)
Giving Grandma loves after lunch. Here is a picture of Autumn playing with my mom at Spring Creek BBQ...where we went to celebrate Drews birthday...with the whole family (my brother and his family, and my other bro and his g/f)We celebrated Drews actual birthday day at my parents house and my uncle and aunt came over, and my brother's g/f. I made fajitas for everyone and my mom made a cake. The only picture I will post of that night is this one: My dad loved every minute he could get with his grandkids.After dinner Weston hung out with my brother. Weston looks a lot like him. When he was born my mom kept saying how much he reminded her of my brother. They are both fair and very blonde. Autumn spent each and every spare moment she could with my dad. There is something special there. She can't get enough of him and he is so patient with her. She loved to cuddle with him and then climb all over him like he's a jungle gym too. She was his little shadow while we were there (which gave me a break).Autumn loved taking baths in my mom's big giant tub. She is looking at her reflection in the spout.One of the days when it was raining Autumn kept looking into the backyard...yearning to go out and play.Autumn and I played in my dad's chair.
