Labor Day

What a wonderful holiday weekend!  Our friends, the Putts, came for a visit and it was just so nice.  We had such a fun time! We laughed, we hiked, we played.  I stayed up way too late, but it was totally worth it.  

Is it just me, or do you see a double wedding in their futures? :) Cruz, Kiki, Mateo & Monroe 

On Sabbath afternoon, we went on a great drive and on a hike.  

On Sunday, I had to leave for a bit and sing at a friend's wedding.  It was a beautiful wedding for a well deserving couple.  I couldn't be happier for them! 

 When I got back, we threw some fallish clothes on and our favorite photographer in the world, Tim, took our family pictures.  I've decided it's much better to know five minutes before family pictures, than weeks.  I didn't have time to mull and worry over outfits or hair.  We literally through them together and took them on our street.  Couldn't be happier with the results.  These are just a few taken with Mark's phone before Tim's camera unfogged.  I'm sure you'll get the real deal on your Christmas card:)

My sweet baby

After pictures, we headed down to the fire pit to roast hotdogs and smores.  It was a lovely way to end their visit.  They left early this morning and the girls were so sad to find that "Matato", as Kiki calls him, was gone when they woke up.  

We had a full day today.  It was wonderful having Mark home.  After breakfast, we went to the gym for a workout and then took the girls to walk around the hospital.  In the afternoon, we walked in the Apple Festival Parade.  It was a scorcher, but the girls thought being in the parade was just the best thing ever.  It was really fun! 

Headed back to our car after a fun parade walk! 

We spent the rest of the day playing outside.  It was a good day!
