Apple?

Life has been hectic so sadly my blog has been put on the back burner... the way far back burner. I hope to start posting again more regularly but I am so far behind. I decided it is best to start current and slowly work my way back. We are LOVING our new house and especially our new neighborhood. There are lots of wonderful families here and we feel so blessed to have made so many new friends so soon. Much of our time is spent outside enjoying the last bit of warm weather. We go on many walks, play at the playground and hang out with our neighbors. Alex is loving being outside more. If we aren't playing we are usually napping.. yes I said we. I can't seem to get enough rest. Overall this pregnancy has been very smooth but I am looking forward to getting some of my energy back. Nap time is precious and bedtime can't seem to come quick enough for me. Pretty sad I know!

A week ago we decided to go out as a family and visit he local pumpkin patch. Alex was in 7th heaven. He loved all of the "APPLES". It was very difficult to get him to understand that they were pumpkins and not apples. He loved carrying them and putting them in our wheelbarrow. By the end of our stay we had to weed out a good 20 pumpkins from our cart before checking out. We finished the night off at Iceberg for dinner. I look forward to this new family tradition each year. It's crazy to think that our little family of 3 will become 4 by the time we go again next year.

Hope all is well with you and your families. Although I have been horrible at updating our blog I am still checking friends' blogs and love hearing about your lives. Hope to write more soon. For now.. Ta ta!!

That's quite the pumpkin patch! Is that out by your new house? We plan to take the kids to get pumpkins this weekend. Yes, you know us well, we are complete SLACKERS! I think we are going to check out the Farnsworth Farms in Draper.
