Here is Kadence in the sea of leaves in our backyard. We just had our annual clean up this weekend and luckily I kinda got out of helping with the raking and putting them in the dump trailer due to being so pregnant. And let me tell you that just broke my heart not to get to help :) But it is just ridiculous how many leaves we get. Is it illegal to cut down someone's trees? Because I am very tempted. Who needs 14 huge cottonwood trees in their (and unfortunately my) backyard anyway.

Pumpkin Patch & Halloween Fun

So I was really excited for Halloween this year. Kadence was way excited about her kitty costume and trick-or-treating for the first time. Last year she screamed when I put her costume one so it was fun this year to see her so excited. We took her to Morgan to the business trick-or-treat with some of her cousins and then we went to grandmas for a little party.

About a week ago me and Kadence went to a pumpkin patch in Syracuse with my sister-in-law Lyndzee and her little boy Kayson (I think it was called the Black Forest Farms?). They took us on a hay ride around the farm and then the kids got to pick out a pumpkin. They also had lots of other fun stuff for the kids to do. They had farm animals to look at, slides to play on, a big box of corn to play in (like sand), a blow up pumpkin to jump in, and a cute animal barrel train to ride. It was fun and the kids loved it!

Kadence's first Vegas experience

Well this weekend we took a quick trip to Vegas. Tyler was going down to play in a softball tournament and me and Kadence decided to go last minute since we have been home alone so much lately. I was kinda worried about how she would do on such a long drive, but I was pleasantly surprised. She did so much better than I thought she was going to. We borrowed a DVD player for her to watch movies and I think that saved our lives. But we had a really good time. It was so fun to experience Vegas through her eyes for the first time. I think she was amazed and a little overwhelmed by all the lights and everything going on. We stayed at Circus Circus and she loved that. We watched two circus shows; one magic show that was really cool, and then a clown show that was really lame but I think she enjoyed it anyway. Most the day Saturday we were watching softball (one of Kadence's favorite things to do). Then Saturday night we went to Freemont Street to show Kadence the light show on the ceiling. It was really loud so she couldn't decide weather she liked it or not. Sunday we went to the dolphin exhibit at the Mirage. It was really cool to see the dolphins and they also have lots of lions so she really liked that.

This male tiger was biting the female on the butt! Typical male perv :)
These dolphins did lots of fun tricks and splashed us. Kadence loved that.

Lots of Mommy & Daughter time!

So for the last month I have been a single mom... well kinda. Ty was working out of town in Tucson, Arizona since the first of September. So me and Kadence have been trying to find things to do to pass the time more quickly and not be bored out of our minds! He got to come home on the weekends, but it still made really long weeks! And let me tell you that I gained a new respect for single moms out there! It was really hard to be home all day and night with no break. You don't realize how much help our husbands really are until they are gone! And dont get me wrong I love being with my little girl, but I think there were times that we had both had enough of each other. But here are some of the things we have been up to.

We had to go buy party hats cause her favorite Barney movie has them. And now every time we watch it we both get to wear one and dance around. Thank goodness for blinds :)

I could not get her out of this car at Walmart. She thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Time to catch up part 2!

So I know I have said this before but if you haven't noticed I really really suck at blogging! I really should just give it up, but I will not let this get the best of me. I am going to persevere and become a great blogger! Ok not very realistic but everyone can dream right :) So I guess I am just going to post a little bit about what we have been up to all this time.
Well first of all for all of you that don't know yet we are having another baby! Yay! Its a boy this time so I am excited. And due new years day so that's cool. I am sure most of you know by now but I thought I should post something about this exciting news!
So it has been a crazy busy summer and we have been on the go constantly and I never remember my camera so this post might seem a little boring for pictures. But I will fill you in. Pretty much our whole summer has consisted of either softball or swimming of some sort. Kadence is in love with swimming and since the Roy pool is like a block from our house we go a lot. We have also been doing some camping. We had Tyler's work party at a nice campground in northern UT. It had a golf course and a pool so that was fun. But we got rained on the whole time so it kinda sucked. We also went to East Canyon with Ty's fam and camped for the weekend in this cool hut thing they have up there. It was pretty nice to stay in if you can ignore the sound of little animal things running around inside, and a thunder and lightning storm outside! We got to go boating though and Kadence loved that. She even rode on the tube with Tyler and didn't want to get off. But other than that we have just been enjoying the nice hot weather! So I will try to do better about updating more often ok :)

What a little Diva!

Time to catch up!

Ok so I must say that I have really been slacking on my blog lately! It seems like we are so busy lately and I just don't make time for it. So I decided that I better put a few pics on here to let everyone know what we have been up to.

Kadence Turns 2!!

This was Kadence sneeking frosting before we lit the candles

My baby girl turned two this Monday! I cant believe it! Time is flying by. She was really fun this birthday. She was so excited about her presents. Everything she opend was "tute" she said. One of her cousins even tried to help her open a few and she wasn't having any of that! We bought her a little Dora the Explorer bike but she cant reach the peddles because she is so little! Luckily she is content for now to just sit on it and scoot around. She is at such a fun age right now. I know everyone says that it is the terrible two's but I love this stage. She definitely has her terrible moments of tantrums and screaming and backtalking me, but overall she is such a good girl! She makes me laugh constantly. I cant believe some of the things that she comes up with. Kids are so hilarious! I feel so blessed to have her in my life. She has changed me in so many ways and has taught me so many things. Happy birthday baby! I love you!
