I love Cornbelly's. It seriously is such a fun way to kick off the holidays. I have taken Carter every year since he was born and I am so happy that we were in Utah while Cornbelly's was going this year. It is only set up during the month of October and usually only is open at night. It is such a fun family night activity... lots of things to keep kids having fun. 

 I was looking at pictures from previous years (here) and I am so glad that I spent the time taking pictures and documenting. Time really goes by so fast. It made me smile that I still go with my cousin Leah and her kids. Family relationships are really important to me and I love that we have created a tradition of going here every year together.  Just missed having my husband with us.

The duck races are always a hit. Kids always seem to be drawn towards anything involving water and it actually is pretty entertaining for adults as well.

It was a really fun night. I'm wishing at this moment I were back there. Love Utah in the Fall.  Big thanks to my family for going with us. We had a blast and miss you guys!!

** I would recommend watching for coupons online to go!  Also, as you are exiting Cornbelly's you can get a bounce back pass for $5 per person.  It allows you to go one more time for half the price! Definitely worth it if you ask me :)**

Cutest Pumpkin around

Someone is getting excited for Halloween!
Carly is at the age that now she grabs her headband and pulls it off any chance she can. Some headbands she will keep on better than others.  I'm sad that this stage came faster than I thought it would. 
I die over the cuteness.

My lil boy turns 4

My Carter boy just turned 4. 4!!!! I can't even believe that it has been 4 years since he has come into my life. Carter is the sweetest boy and I feel so blessed to have him around me. He makes every Holiday fun, always looks at the positive side of everything, and he can always bring a smile to my face. He is sensitive, loving and caring. Happy Birthday Carter. 

 Because I spent the last month in Utah with the kids, Andy wasn't there for Carters birthday. Yesterday Andy and I took Carter to pick out his birthday present and he was one happy boy. 
Andy and his lil' helper all ready to tighten the brakes and training wheels for Carter.
Love my handsome boy.

Saturday Mornings

The holidays just aren't as much fun if you don't have matching pajamas to go along with it. Osh Kosh kids was having an awesome 50% off sale and I snagged matching skeleton pajamas for my kids. Seriously, does anyone else get the urge to snuggle up on a couch watching a movie when kids wear jammies like these?  It was near impossible to get a picture of them together.. I'll just keep trying though! 
^^ That face has "Really Mom??" written all over it! Makes me want to pinch her chunky cheeks :)
^^^ Someone was ready for their morning nap :)  Next year I am going to plan ahead so I can find myself some matching ones. I'm being totally serious about that.

Living Planet Aquarium

If you have been in Utah in the past few weeks you might have noticed that it has rained a lot and been a bit more on the chilly side. So, this past weekend when it was cold and rainy was a perfect time for us to venture over to the Living Planet Aquarium. I actually enjoyed it just as much as Carter did. We went with my family and had a really fun time.

 {Aunt Sarah ended up giving him a piggy back ride across :) }
Ending with the best picture of the day. My dad was holding Carly and because she doesn't quite understand how to properly sit on someones shoulders.. My dad made up his own way to carry her around ;)  I really just couldn't stop laughing.

Pretty & Perfect... Like the sweatshirt says

Shirt & Pants: Carters via Costco (also available here) /// Headband: Pac Sun //// Bracelet: handmade by my neighbor 

{Side note:} This is an adult women's headband. It has elastic in the back that we took it in to fit Miss Carly's head. 

Carly is now almost 7 months old and is attempting to crawl. She gets up in the position and rocks as hard as she can. I am trying my hardest to enjoy each stage she is in before it is gone. This is going WAY too fast. I swear she is growing at twice the speed Carter did. It really is unfair. I wish more than anything I could freeze time right now!!!
