Fall Fun

So we haven't really posted anything for awhile. I guess it means it is time to play a little bit of catch up. We have really enjoyed being outside in the fall weather.
We went to a campground and had tin foil dinners and smores.
It was right by a stream and Katie LOVED throwing rocks in the water. Not just pebbles, she would find the biggest rock she could carry and try and throw it in the stream. This picture is right after she threw it.
Paul has officially mastered the playground. The second we put him down he heads straight for the stairs. He can climb up and crawl all over the playground.
He loves the slide. I think it has been his greatest feat. He can climb all the way up and turn around to slide back down.
It wouldn't be fall without playing in the leaves. We got the pile so big over a couple weeks that it was taller than Katie. She will run around a tree and sing ring around the rosie and then when it gets close to the end she runs about 20 feet over to the pile of leaves and "falls down." It's hilarious.

Another First

That's right, Paul is hitting one milestone after the other. This just happens to be a pretty big one. He has taken his first steps!!! I know crazy. You don't believe me, that's what I thought. So I got proof. It isn't the most he has taken but it is two steps. He took his first step at the beginning of the week. He got up to three in a row. Today he took four, but of course I couldn't get it on camera. So this will have to do.

What went wrong???

Okay, so it is the Saturday morning of Conference and what do I want to do? Easy, wake up and cook some banana bread so Scott can have something good when he wakes up and something to snack on throughout the morning session. So like the good little wife I am I turned the oven on and stuck the chair next to the counter so Katie could help me cook. Meanwhile Paul is sitting in the high chair nibbling on some cheerios. Alright, so there's the scene. As I am grabbing all of the ingredients I started thinking...all of these people lately have been telling me that you can be healthier when you cook if you just use applesauce instead of sugar. You can't tell the difference...so I'm told. I thought why not, lets test Scott's taste buds. So Katie and I put it all together and in the oven it goes. Well 45 minutes later I go and wake up Scott so I can go running before Conference starts. We talk for a minute and he says that it smells delicious. That was the only compliment I got about the banana bread. Well the timer goes off at 50 minutes and I open the oven. Inside much to my surprise/dread whatever you want to call it I see...


Well there you have it. So much for trying to be healthy! I say eat drink and be merry for twenty minutes later I run!!! But if anyone knows the error of my ways feel free to laugh and then correct me. Oh by the way just to let you know, I really don't suck at cooking all of the time. Usually it turns out quite well...it's just when I adventure into the unknown. FOLLOW THE RECIPE, it never goes wrong when I pay attention to the directions.
