Wishing Star Farm: Pumpkin Patch

Fall has definately been in the air and I was dying to get out and pick some pumpkins.  We invited my brother and his two boys to come along and we all had a wonderful time!  Definately something to make a tradition in the York house.

 We fed the animals

Rode the "hay slide" (100 ft gorge slide)

Played in the corn

Climbed the big haystack
 Marched with a cornstalk
 Fell down while marching with the cornstalk

Posed for a family photo (Tyler's eyes were kinda closed, but it's still cute)
Looked for pumpkins
Tyler got his perfect pumpkin!

And Sawyer wanted to drive the tractor home

Helen Hunt Falls

Tyler and I are really enjoying my new schedule!  It is so fun to spend time together and such a nice break from the hectic life we have lived for the past two years.  Last week we decided to go to nearby Helen Hunt Falls....

Waterfalls are my favorite!  What a fun day!

We've got a climber on our hands!

When I was two years old, I took a chair from my kitchen table, slid it over to the counter, climbed on top of the chair, then onto the counter, and on top of the fridge to get a cookie out of the cookie jar. Now this story is often told by my family to demonstrate my early desire to be independant as well as my LOVE of sweets as a child. It also shows I was NOT afraid to climb!  Looks like Sawyer takes after his mommy....

He will climb on anything and everything he can! What a silly boy!

Last Family Camping Trip of the Year

I was dying to get out of the house and do something since I had a WHOLE week off between finishing school and starting my new job. Then it occured to me that I didn't do anything fun this summer!  I definately needed to get out and enjoy nature!  Tyler and I both agreed it was time for a camping trip. The aspens were beautiful and it was a great way to get away from it all....

Hanging out in the tent
After the rain stopped, we bundled up
Yay!  Sunshine!
Getting ready for some dinner
Sleeping in his very own sleeping bag! (What a lucky kid!)
He fell down a couple hundred times- walking down hills on uneven ground is not easy!

And... a cute video of Sawyer taunting the dog with a stick....

2010 State Fair

It has become our tradition to go to the fair every year now.  This year it was fun to watch Sawyer interact with the animals. 

 Daddy and Sawyer on the shuttle bus, excited to go to the fair!
This guy wrestled gators!  So Cool! (I also lusted after his big muscles a little, which made Tyler jealous...)
Sawyer trying to pet a horse. They were hungry and I was scared to death they were gonna bite his hand off

He tried to pet EVERYTHING, but was a little cautious
