...he went to see Grandma and Grandpa Andrew with my brother and his family. The house is so quiet. He won't be back for a week. In the mean time I plan to absorb as much of her cuteness as I possibly can.
Travis and Rachel invited us to go to Hill Ridge farm with them last week but it was raining when we got there so we tried again this week and the weather could not have been better. I think it is safe to say we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
we all loved the corn hut and the gigantic tube slide
When I was a kid my brother Travis had a gerbil (ok, so he had about 50 gerbils, no kidding, but that's not the point). Well this one gerbil had babies and the next morning when we went to check on the babies they were all gone. Every last one of them. Just the mama gerbil was left in the cage. At first we were a little confused because it was not like they could have escaped because their eyes weren't even open. Then we realized...the mama gerbil ate her babies(I told you it was a bad story). I have often wondered why that mama gerbil did what she did. Was It because they were so cute she could not resist them? Or were they driving her so crazy that she couldn't stand it? I have often felt like the mama in both of these scenerios, but I have decided it must be the first one. I swear my kids are so cute I have been contemplating gobbling them both up. Please don't call child services. I'm only joking.
Brighton: "I fell on my butt. You need to kiss it better."
Me: "Um, no."
Brighton then proceeds to pull his underwear down and waving his naked rear in my face says impatiently, "KISS IT, KISS IT, KISS IT!"
Brighton is a firm believer that kissing it better actually works (apparently).
***If Jared was home I would have thought he had put Brighton up to it.
Oh ya, one more funny story. Last Friday when we were at playgroup at the park, I was talking to some of the other moms and out the corner of my eye, I see Brighton standing on the edge of the playground with his pants down around his ankles, naked hinnie facing us "peeing like a big dog" (that is what he calls it when he goes outside). I was embarrassed, but I kinda thought it was funny too. Jared looked proud when I told him about it that evening.
We woke up to a feeling of fall in the air. I just love that chilly air. We enjoyedSpiced Pumpkin wafflesfor breakfast( Jared is crazy for anything pumpkin). Then we headed out for our neighborhood park to enjoy our morning. We made it back just in time to be uplifted by the inspiring messages ofGeneral Conference.
