We have been talking to Cohen about going to Preschool all summer long so he would be excited and know what to expect. He got to pick out some of his new school shirts and his most favorite thing...his backpack! He didn't start until after Labor Day after most of his friends had started, so lets just say he was ready!

My handsome little man all grown up.

Splash Park!

One of our favorite things to do is visit the splash park. Cohen and Scheyd could stay there all day if we would let them! Here are a few fun pictures we got from one of the days.

Boating at Jordanelle

In August Ginger had some family come into town from Texas, and rent a boat and some wave runners for the day up at Jordanelle reservoir. It was nice to be able to get together and catch up with them! We left Scheyd with Uncle Kevin and Ethan (his favorite!) and had some one on one time with Cohen, and boy did he love it!! Cameron and Cohen

Cohen loved being on the boat so much that he didn't think twice about wearing his life jacket!

Yep, that's my little man on that tube with his dad! He giggled the whole time, thought it was hilarious.

Cam got Cohen this water launcher to play with in the lake. He was so proud to have it and loved that it was so big!

Camping in the Uinta Mountains

In July were invited by Gingers Aunt and Uncle to go camping in the Uinta Mountains. It was so nice to get out of the heat and relax with family. It was absolutely beautiful up there and we had a blast! Cohen didn't want to leave! As we were pulling out of the camp ground he said, "can we go the camping again soon?"

Provo River falls were breath taking!

Ethan showing Cohen how to do wheelies....Oh great! One of Cohen's favorite things to do was Ride his balance bike. He loved being in the mountains and having a big hill to ride down. He is getting so fast with it mom has a hard time watching with out wanting to make him slow down.

All about Scheyd!

Scheyd turned 1 on August 17, I cant believe our little stinker is getting so big! Here are a few fun things about Scheyd:

Scheyd smiles and laughs all day..seriously, most days all it takes is eye contact and a smile to make him happy. He has a contagious little giggle that we all love to hear. It is so rewarding to have a happy baby.

Scheyd loves to play with all of Cohen's cars. He even makes the "vroom vroom" sound as he drives them all over. He also is taking after his brother and says "ball" all day long, and will get filled with happiness every time he sees one.

Since day 1, Scheyd has slept at night. Of course he would wake up to eat once a night, but he has only been fussy ONCE in the middle of the night. And that was only for 30 minutes when we went camping! (please dont throw anything at me out of anger or jealousy.)

At 11 months he took his first steps and has never slowed down!

Scheyd is now saying a hand full of words and learning new ones everyday. Some of the things he says are: ball, Dada, light, all done, right there, and woof woof. One day I was trying to teach him to say "mama" and he said "Dada" and of course Cam started laughing, now he says Dada every time time to be funny...so not funny. He might say "Dada" but he always comes running to me :)

He absolutely loves airplanes! If hears one he points to the sky and says "right there".
