The wedding, the mud, and no kids!

So this past weekend Jeff and I went to Salt Lake City for our dear friend Cameron's wedding. We are so happy for him and would not have missed it for anything. Grandma Dickson came down to watch the kids so we were kid less for about 72 hours and soaked in every moment.
We are so happy for Cameron and Jana, and are so glad we were there for their big day.
Double trouble.
We then met up with the Grays, our old friends from Austin that now live outside Salt Lake. They decided to take us on a drive through the mountains to see the changing colors, drive through Sundance and just see things fall like that we don't see in Texas. It really was beautiful but, after one wrong turn we ended up two track mudding it.
The red dots and yellow lines are where we should have been and the blue dot is where we were. We ended up doing some major off roading, crossing rivers/creeks, steep inclines and declines and finally getting stuck. We just kept saying, "I am sure we will meet up with the road, just a little bit further." Yeah, lets just say we had to go back out the way we went in.
We were also glad we decided to take the Gray's four runner. It was such a crazy ride I think there are a few things that they now have to get fixed. When we finally made it out, we went to dinner, Brazilian style. The food was great and we had lots of fun laughing at the adventure of the day. We miss good times with the Gray's now that they are far away, so it ended up being a great day of memories until next time.
We had a great trip and now it is back to the kids and real life with a schedule and no sleeping in. Thanks Grandma for helping us out!

Happy Birthday Kyle!

Today is Kyle's First Birthday! He is having a great day. Tyler went to school, Dylan went to the pumpkin patch with some friends and we stayed home to clean the house and make his cake. Of course he fell asleep and missed most of the cleaning, but I guess it is his Birthday. Here are some high lites of the big bash we had when Jeff got home.
I can't believe it has been a whole year. He is such a good little boy. He is so cute. He has the best sad face ever, it is so hard to resist. He loves flirting with the ladies in the grocery store. He follows his brothers around the house ready to get in on the rumbling tumbling soon. He loves to play peek a boo. He is a speed crawler and furniture cruiser. He says, Mama, Dada, No no, and Uh-oh. He loves being in the water, being outside, and just being with people. He is such a joy to our lives and love having him in our family.
All three boys have gotten a sit and ride when they have turned one. They love them. They have been banged , bumped, left outside in the rain, don't make anymore noise, but still ride. Kyle loves his and of course because it is new is now fought over.
