Did You Miss Us?

Thank you for being patient, and if you weren't, thank you for not saying anything. We want to catch you up with our lives. Here is a quick rundown of our summer. Picking up where we left off.


July


Because of the rain on the 4th of July we had friends over to our house to celebrate and play games. The kids were a little worn out by the time we took this picture (L to R Kenna, Clayton, Duncan, and Sadie)

Our Friends Jon, Jessica, and Daniel came for a weekend in July too. On the Saturday of their visit we tried to beat the rain to the Zoo...it met us there, and then Beat us. Memories!

Clayton and Daniel did enjoy a dry ride in the wagon.




We went to a couple of County Fairs and looked at the animals. I have decided that there is no fair like the fair I grew up knowing.

August
We took a trip to Denver to visit Uncle Andre and Aunt Roxanne.



While in Denver we went to their Childrens' Museum, Clayton loved watching the children play as much as he enjoyed playing himself.



Uncle Andre and Clayton playing 0n a Fire Engine.



Clayton enjoyed trying out the tents with Aunt Roxanne at a sporting goods store.


We took a long hike while we were out there. Uncle Andre and Aunt Roxanne at the summit.



Clayton loved the hike, walking the trail as much as riding in the pack. It was so beautiful.



Clayton slept in his pack most of the way down.







I always love playing with Clayton, it gives me a reason to do the things I really want to do. I think we grown-ups want to "act our age" too often.



October

Our friends Scott, Mindy, and Sadie invited us to join them for a short week in Florida. We willingly obliged. The resort we stayed at was beautiful. We enjoyed the multiple pools, lazy rivers, and warm weather. We were on Disney property so we rode the Mono-rail to Epcot and a Ferry to the Magic Kingdom. No,we didn't go into either park but they won't remember. Yes, I am cheap.

Last weekend we spent a cold couple of hours at an apple orchard and pumpkin patch with Pawpaw and Nana Tow. Clayton picked out a great pumpkin, and got to ride a horse for the first time. So many to choose from!


This was Cinnamon, she was a great horse to ride. I am glad I wore boots.



Apple Works Orchard is a beautiful place to visit.


Clayton poses for us whenever we ask. We need to ask more often.





Clayton has a fever for the second day. We hope that it isn't the Swine Flu. Please keep him and Raendra in your prayers. Raendra is in her 26th week of pregnancy so we hope she can stay healthy through this season.
