Jackson just loves the park. We're very lucky where we live, being that we live right across the street from a park. Anytime we go outside he see's the park begging us to let him go over and play. I'm not quite sure what kind of faces he was pulling in these pictures. They were those quick take pictures, and they just happened to be cute and funny face poses.

Jackson loves going across the bridge at the park. The first time he did it it scared me to death. It just took me totally by surprise. He likes to be very independent, so he doesn't like me to hold his hand going across. He's getting better at letting me now though. It would just frighten me that he was going to fall right off cause he runs pretty fast across it. As you can see though he holds on to the bars going across sometimes.

Jacksons pretty good at being careful while he's playing on the playground. As you can see he is holding onto the bars while going up the steps.

Up at the cabin for grandmas birthday

We had so much fun going up to my grandparents cabin up at Sundance for my moms birthday. She loves to always spend her birthday up there. And, I don't blame her. The leaves have started to change colors which just make it so pretty up there. We had a lot a fun playing games, hanging out, etc. up there. It was a little cold so we didn't get to go outside as much as we usually like to up there but we enjoyed it.

Jackson just loves any ball he can get his hands on. He loved playing with his little cousins Alexa and Nathan. Whenever they get together they just play and run after each other. It's so fun to watch how they just get along so well.

It was so funny, Jackson and Alexa would play together, but Nathan just loves to be a part of it all which is great. Nathan will just sit like he is here and will just crack up laughing at both of them, making noise like crazy. What cute kids they are. We're so lucky to have them. They make things so much fun and entertaining. Never a dull moment with all of them together, that's for sure.

Well, we had a very busy and fun summer in Columbus, Indiana. We really enjoyed all the friends we made out there, the internship David was able to receive out there, and the fun trips we were able to take out there back east. BUT, we were very excited to come back to Utah to finish up school and be back in COUGAR TOWN! We couldn't wait to be FULLY INVESTED (as Coach Mendenhall would say) in the cougar united group we are in as a family. It's really fun, we got these cool looking shirts we have on, a sweatshirt and all different cool stuff. We are so lucky to attend the football games so close as you can see. We figured we might as well enjoy it since it's our last semester here at BYU (yay!!! in ways, we will miss it though) It was so much fun being on the 5th row down and center. We had so much fun in the crowd cheering the team on.

Ra, ra, ra, ra, ra.......GO COUGARS!!!

It was such a hot day. I'm glad we had a hat for Jackson. Although David and I didn't think enough to bring our own. Darn, we were putting sunscreen on at least every half hour to make sure we didn't get burned. That's not fun! Been there done that and don't want to anytime soon. My family would know all the horrible sunburns I have gone through.

Jackson was so cute, we just had to get him a BYU shirt. We couldn't resist. He looked so cute in it. He is so much fun and very busy. He's talking all the time making the fishy face, and doing all different animal sounds. We have a blast with him. Such a big boy now. He just loves fishes and dogs now. He explodes out of my arms anytime we're out and he hears a dog bark. We have to keep our eye on him every minute.
