Happy Halloween!

We've had a fun weekend celebrating Halloween.  Lots of parties with friends, and Chase got to wear his costume 3 days in a row, which he was thrilled about.  He's pretty much the cutest little fireman I've ever seen, and Taylor made a pretty adorable Tigger too.  Chase has been loving all the decorations everywhere all month, and has spent some time practicing being a ghost and "scaring" us.  Tonight we went trick-or-treating in our neighborhood and Chase was so excited!  He'd run up to each door and do his thing, and then run back to us and shout "now we gotta go to another house and get more candy"...seriously, after every-single-house. After about an hour his bucket was so full he could barely carry it, so we figured it was time to call it a night.  Taylor, who was way past his bedtime, did awesome just hanging out in the stroller and trying to chew through the plastic wrapper of a sucker.:)  It was good times, and Chase made lots of friends along the way, which was super entertaining for us.  For me, I'm going to go ahead and say it was the best Halloween ever!  Pretty great how holidays are even better through your child's eyes.

the boys in action

Chase sure has a big personality.  The kid loves to sing and be the center of attention!  Taylor thinks he's hilarious, and so do I.:)
And here's cute little Taylor, just enjoying the water.

St. George

We took a road trip last weekend for the St. George marathon.  Brett had to bow out because of a severe knee injury (as in he can't run AT ALL for 4-6 weeks and should really be on crutches), but we took the opportunity to see friends and hang out anyway.  We made the fatal mistake of forgetting the car dvd player, but survived the drive with a little help from YouTube on the iPhone.  There's a cute splash park in downtown St. George that the boys had a great time at, especially because they were (amazingly) the only kids there most of the time!  We took a ride on a cute (also vacant) carousel too.  It was a nice little getaway.

Taylor is such a water baby.  He gets super excited for bath time.  I love how cute the boys are when they're happily playing together.
