Couch Potato

I cant stop laughing when I see these photos. ULTIMATE couch potato. Belly out, lounging, petting the pooch, feet kicked up, ttttotally relaxed, cartoons on.  Life is good!

We went to dinner at Uncle RyRy and Auntie Lynda's house, and Jake sat down with Toshi, his favorite doggie, and watched cartoons like this.  Rough life, that boy has.

Autumn Apple Orchard

Fall is in full swing.  So is cold, flu, and sick season, all of which we are combating constantly.  I'm so over it!!! BUT We discovered an apple orchard less than a quarter mile from our on Saturday we went and picked some apples and tried taking some photos, which I will attach when our computer decides to stop being so frustrating!!

Jake is really obsessed with apples right now.  He says apple over and over again sometimes, so we (I) thought, 'HEY, son, Jake want to go to an apple orchard and then maybe you will stop saying that word over and over again?'  He looks for apples in magazines and in books.  A few months ago, it was bumblebees and now it's apples.

He indeed loved the orchard and kept pointing at all the deep red and bright yellow apples and picking up sticks.  It appeased his strong desire to always obsess over them for a time. We brought home many crispy varieties, and now he has an apple a day.  I sure wish it keeps the doctor away cause he has been repetitively getting sick. Sweet boy, he is.

We do miss the warmer LA weather,  but it has been a gorgeous slow fall and we have really enjoyed the orange, red, and yellow colors gracing all the trees!

Family Photos 2012

Just before we left LA, we snapped some fun family photos at the LACMA Lanterns.  I dreamed of getting some fun photos there before we left.  We had a great time, minus Jake being a serious pill and crying most of the time. We lucked out and got some good ones! My oh my we miss LA.

Montana 2012 Part II

 Madie and Uncle Andy at Crystal Park!

 Jake wanted to get in the frog pond, and cousin Chase did a great job helping him from falling in!
 Kate did too
 We hunted for crystals in Crystal Park in this big field.  Jake loved wandering around!

 This picture cracks me up.  All the cousins were playing peekaboo with Jake under the blanket laughing!
 Time to get clean after a day full of fun and getting dirty!

 Andy woke up really early, after driving till 3 AM to get to Montana and went fishing with Chris!
 Chris caught the biggest fish ;-)

 My brother is an avid outdoorsman!
 We went for a walk and hike to Upper Miner's Lake! Daddy is a scary bear!
 I have no idea how many sticks Jake played with but he had so much fun!

 Could he be any sweeter!?! Oh I just love him!
 We shared many story times together!
 Oh man, so many good meals.  Andy took this picture! Isnt it cool?!
