October already!

We did some fun stuff in September, just thought I'd update with a bunch of pictures.  We did not work on the house enough...most of our stuff is still in storage.  But I keep telling myself it will get done eventually.  Right?

We went to a Poison/Def Leppard concert.  Marty loved it.  ;)
I watch Celebrity Apprentice so I did like seeing Brett Michaels.  

 We went to two parades in one day.  One for the Walnut Festival, and one for two Olympic medalists who live by us.
 Carter loves Kindergarten, and even got to bring his class mascot, Alfredo Buzzito, home for a whole weekend!  We took him on a little hike where we found this giant tree stump.
 Addison joined Girl Scouts and went to a really fun Twilight Camp one evening.  She had SO MUCH FUN.  I'm really proud of her since she didn't know a single person and we weren't allowed to stay.
 This is Carter doing his show and tell in front of the class.
 I've been on a lot of walks and everything is super beautiful!  This is looking down into my neighborhood from a little trail I like to take.

 This is the park right by our house. Click on the picture so you can see all the stuff in it a little better.
 Santa Cruz, again.  It has been so hot here that we decided to go out there on Saturday.

 and then Marty and the kids slept outside in a tent Saturday night.
 Of course lots of time in the pool and hot tub.
 And Carter is a budding artist.  He is always drawing or making things out of paper.  They talked about talents at church and this was what he did to take to show his class.  It's a picture of Marty.

Happy October!  We have some fun stuff planned this month.  Stay tuned.  And know that if you are reading this blog, WE MISS YOU!


  1. Looks like you're still having tons of fun in CA! Wish we could come visit- maybe one day :)

  2. Lots of fun! That is so fun that Addison joined girl scouts. I did Girl Scouts when I was younger, in fact my mom was my brownies leader. I have been thinking that would be something fun to do but now with Activity Days I wasn't sure if that would be too much... let me know how it goes :)

  3. Ha, your projects will eventually get done...I'm going on a year now:) We aren't even half way yet! Been thinking about ya!

  4. How fun to live where you can get to a park and what views you have. I am so glad the kids are happy and you all are doing good. :)

  5. I'm so behind, I've not even been able to keep up with blogs!! Love your posts as usual and it looks like you all are having a great time! Love to all!

  6. How are you guys liking your new ward? I'm sure that it is not the same as our most awesome ward they have you busy yet?

    1. Hey Jen! :) Our ward is good. People are very welcoming and friendly. Every week I miss our ward though. :( I am in YW (Beehive advisor). How's Gospel Doctrine? I miss you!!!!!
