September I Remember

So one of the first things we did after moving to Utah was to go camping with Jon's family.  The nights were a little rough with Asher but it was fun all the same.  The thing I think I missed the most while living back east was the mountains.  To be able to be in them again was wonderful.  We went on a little hike with the kids and Uncle Grant gallantly carried Kate for some of the time.  What a trooper!

Now that is hiking.  For Grant, at least.

It was a little chilly and Asher borrowed Sam's reindeer hat.  It was pretty awesome, especially while riding the toy zebra bike.

So one day we decided to take a trip up to Brighton just to be in the mountains once again. There is a beautiful lake so we took a walk around it and then had a mini-picnic at the campgrounds nearby.

There is this cool Micky Mouse bit on the mountain

Some days it's nice just to chill out and not rush things in the mornings or at night.  One night before bed Kate and I were just hanging out.  She's always very funny but she was on something that night.  She decided to put a diaper on her head.  What a crazy girl she is.

More of my crazy Kate.  She has a sticker chart that she uses like money.  Each prize has a sticker value and after she earns a certain number of stickers she can trade them in for a prize.  One of her prizes was a pair of princess goggles.  I think the better prize was this picture.  :)

Asher is just as crazy as his sister.  They both crack me up numerous times a day.  Asher doesn't really like being messy (though he doesn't seem to mind MAKING messes) and after eating a raspberry jelly doughnut he brought me a wipe to clean him up.

Another of the things we missed a lot in New York was the Hogle Zoo.  We loved the Syracuse zoo as well but there are different animals in each zoo so Kate was especially excited to see giraffes again.  Asher was more interested in the tractors that were working to build the new Polar exhibit.

I love this picture.  She looks like she's about to ram something down.

Asher's new favorite person - Grandma!
