We went to church at the Tates Creek building, and miraculously Spencer fell asleep! Such a good boy.
Mom snuggling Gabby/Baby – she was a rescue from Sister Southworth’s house.
Cameo, Spence, and Leo relaxing on the Sabbath.
Meanwhile in Vegas…Tom and his team finished up DSES 2013! It was a success.
Our attempt at a grandkid picture. This was the best we could get. 🙂
On Monday we went to the Kentucky Horse Farm. It was so much fun for the kids!
You can’t beat this gorgeous scenery.
Playing hard makes you thirsty!
My cute little jockey.
The kids had a blast playing at the horse park with cousins.
We even got to go on a horse-drawn carriage ride. Spencer was really excited.
He even kissed a (fake) horse. My sweet boy.
The horses are so beautiful.
Spencer really liked watching them in their stalls. I was worried a finger would get bitten off. 😉
Thanks for driving all the way from Alabama to visit us, Cam! We had a great time with her adorable kids.
Spencer about had a heart attack he was squealing so loud when the horses first ran out into the arena.
Fun times with the family! It was so wonderful to be able to spend a week in Kentucky with my family. It was sad to not have Tom there, but he was busy with DSES in Vegas. We laughed, and ate, and played, and chased kids around. It was a great trip!
Spencer was so tuckered out after a wonderful trip to Kentucky that he slept on one of the flights home. He’s an angel.
Tom and I both flew home from our trips on October 15th, our TWO year anniversary! It was sad to not be together very much (since he didn’t fly in until midnight), but we were able to celebrate our anniversary in Salt Lake the next weekend. I am so grateful to be married to the most patient, happy, loving, motivated man I’ve ever met. He’s better than any husband I could have ever dreamed up.
We went to a surprise baby shower for Paul and Lindsay Hamilton on the 16th. They are having a boy in November.
Spencer really liked sitting by the fire.
Cozied up with panda.
It’s FALL! (Now who’s going to rake all those leaves?)
My little ball of joy. I love him so much.
Spencer took advantage of an open fridge, pulled the milk out, and immediately tried to drink from the top. Tom followed his example. Boys…
One last play in the sandbox. It’s getting coooold!
His first real bleed. He was coming up the stairs and bit his lip somehow. He was very sad about it. It healed super fast, though. I’m a little surprised that he hasn’t gotten any real cuts/scrapes/bruises. He’s a careful boy.
And then he got sick with some nasty virus. 🙁 We didn’t sleep for days. Poor thing. I blame all the airplanes and travel.
The neatest part of the week was being able to attend the baptism of the (entire) Schumate family. Nate works with Tom and moved his family here a couple months ago. They were befriended by neighbors who shared the Gospel with them. Nate was baptized the week before this, and was able to receive the Priesthood so that he could baptize his wife and kids (their youngest son is only 7, and will be baptized when he turns 8). The spirit was so strong at the baptism. I am grateful for the knowledge of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. It brings so much happiness and peace to my family, and any family that accepts it.
