Winter's Coming

At 7 a.m. this morning,
we were outside to greet the season's
first snowfall.

It was fun to play in the snow.
We are excited about winter
and can't wait to start skiing and sledding again!

Lookout Mountain II

This hike.
My boys.
And a crazy uncle.
All good things.

Looking for elk.

Look at this handsome lad.

Wind River Mountains

The last time we did this hike (here), Isaac was 2, and Caden was a 6-month uteran.

He's finally getting some hair.

Thanks for helping cart the boys, Uncle Steve!!

A Very Special Visit

Back in August, we had a most wonderful visit from these amazing ladies.

As always, we were thrilled to have Gran here with us.  Isn't she cute?!
And her visit this time around included an added bonus...

Aunt Trisha!!

My dear, sweet Aunt who I hadn't seen in 8 years--since my wedding--made the trek out to Wyoming.
It was wonderful to spend quality time with her and to share with her my family and my home.
I can't thank you enough for making the trip out, Aunt Trisha.  What a special week it was to have my mom and my favorite Aunt here with me.  I can't wait for the next time!!

This was Aunt Trisha's first time meeting my boys
and getting to spend any significant time with Matt.  Of course, they all loved her.
Caden was downright smitten, I'd say.  He still asks for ice to eat on a regular basis.
Thank you, Aunt Trisha.

As one might imagine, we did a lot of hanging out and facilitating boys romping.
A highlight was the mama-and-baby-moose viewing right from our kitchen window.
Gran finally believes me that they really do hang out in our neighborhood.

While I seem to have taken plenty of pictures of two particular little boys,
I didn't get a lot of pictures of mom and Aunt Trisha, or myself, or Matt,
for that matter.  (There are actually no pics of him during the visit.)
Alas, here are some of the pictures we did manage to snap during the week.
By no means do they capture the sweetness of days spent with family or the fullness of my heart.
Enjoy them nonetheless!

It's not called Radio Flyer for nothing.


This was Isaac trying really hard to be a loving big brother.  Caden thought it was a little much.
I was ecstatic they were standing together for a picture.
(The adorable shirts were made by Aunt Trisha.)


Tuckered out.

We had one kidless afternoon to enjoy a hike at New Fork Lake.

Back in Jackson for their departure, we made Aunt Trisha take a picture with the sign, despite the poor weather and minimal visibility of the mountains.  Oh well, guess she'll have to come back.

She seems a little more willing to do the obligatory antler arch photo.

Could they be sisters?

Soaking up the last of Gran's sugar. :(


After we said our good-byes, these two were unstoppable in their endeavor
to soak up the Jackson night life.  Turns out, they make pretty good travel companions.

Two thumbs up all around! Let's do it again!
