It's Monday morning and I have a to do list a mile long of stuff that needs to be done at home. I am grateful though that I can enjoy the crisp morning breeze in my PJs knowing I will be home all day with my boy. Life is good!!

I had a awesome weekend well besides my toe issue! I was able to go shopping at Oh Sweet Sadie with friends ( two different days) and bought myself a fun ribbon dispenser. I had Indian food with Jason, did errands and ended the weekend with a trip to the mountains.

Thank you to Laura for a little inspiration our family headed up to Little Cottonwood Canyon yesterday afternoon to enjoy the fall colors. We packed up our new car.. have I mentioned I am LOVING IT... anyway we packed the car with our little portable grill and goodies for dinner. We had salad, drinks, chips, hot dogs, cookies and of course smores. It was a perfect day to enjoy the mountains together. Alex although a little grumpy had a good time getting dirty. I think we will go again before it's too late. Anyone up for coming along?

This was Alex about 5 minutes after we arrived to the campground. He was running full speed and biffed it. He even got dirt in his ear.
How cute this this picture?
What a strange look on my face and a mouthful of cookies for Alex.
I love my buddy!
Going for a walk with Daddy, I love this picture!
Daddy found a stick for Alex, he was thrilled.
He thought he was so big with his stick.

Jason's attempt at a smile or so he told me.

Alex sat in his stroller while we ate dinner. He kept pulling this face when he would hear a car go by. He was cracking us up.

ahhh smores.. I love them! Sadly I was making my 2nd
smore when our propane tank died.

P.S. Thanks for everyone's concerns about my toe. It is doing much better. The coloring has changed and the swelling has gone down. It's still sore though. It looks more like a nasty birth mark now, I spared you a new photo. =)
