Rooster Rock

Today was our annual church picnic and baptism at Rooster Rock State Park. Unfortunately it fell on the same day as the first Sunday of NFL football. This meant Randy and Addie were at home watching the games, but Claire, Autry, Gibson and I enjoyed the sun at the park. Autry wrestled with the older boys, climbed in trees, received piggy backs from his new friend Averi, and ran around like a wild man. Claire colored, played ball and duck, duck, goose with her friends Pearl and Brynne.  Gibson was cuddled and held by people or was with me in the ergo. We all had a fun time hanging out with our friends.

At one time today these three girls wandered a little to far away. Brynn's mom Elisabeth ran after them to get them because I was feeding Gibson. ON the way back she was talking to them about how wandering away was dangerous because someone could take them. Claire responded, "Then Daddy wouldn't have his princess anymore and Daddy would be sad, but not mommy" 

Autry getting a piggy back from Averi. Averi's mom Willow told her that maybe it wasn't a good idea to give him piggy back rides because she kept dropping him. Autry said, "It's okay, I'm tough"

Labor Day with Grammy and Grampy

Addie, who has no fear, wanted to walk into the pond

Autry and Claire fed the fish at Bonneville Dam

They love looking at the sturgeon. I didn't get a good picture of it, but
Addie was so excited about the big fish.

Playing in the grass; she's an opossum. (Grampy told the kids a story about
an opossum the night before)

Playing with Grammy; she really isn't as scared as she looks like 
in the picture.

Gibson 2 Weeks

We had a doctor's appointment and Gibson is doing great. He had lost a lot of weight before we left the hospital, so that was a bit of concern. However, the doctor's appointment today revealed that he is doing just fine. He now weighs 7lbs 10oz and is 21 inches long. He has gained almost a full pound since we left the hospital and grown over an inch!
We are all still smitten with our litter Gibbers. The kids all have colds right now, so they are having a hard time not hugging and kissing him. But right now that is our biggest problem. I went out with all four kids twice this week, then Thursday I had to stay home because I was feeling pretty wiped.

New Shield

One of the main things that Autry thinks about is how to make his Narnia attire better. This morning the first thing he talked to us about was how we could make a case for his sword, and what it should look like. Randy told him he would make him a shield today. Randy cut it out of wood, we put duct tape on it, and put a Lion on it. He loves his new shield. However, the narnia thoughts never stop. Earlier today I had been looking online and found a Peter costume. So...tonight as he was going to bed he called me into his room and said, "Mommy, after you finish the dishes, can you and Daddy please have a conversation about the Peter armor?"
