We have had our comment section set up to only publish approved comments because we were getting some weird comments from spammers, but that hasn't happened in so long that I'd like it to be easier to comment on the blogs. So feel free! It should be easy to do now.

Happy Fall!

We sure have been enjoying this fall weather! We had a bonfire the other night for a few hours. I think we burned everything in our garage that we've been trying to get rid of. I wouldn't mind a few more months of this. I love that we have 4 seasons here in Minnesota. I sometimes wish winter wasn't as long, but I enjoy parts of it, too. And since it's not here yet, we will just enjoy October and all of its fun fall activities. Apple orchards and harvest festivals, here we come!

More Steps from Ava

Ava started taking steps a few weeks back but for the last week or two it didn't seem like she was very interested in walking anymore. It may have been due to her not feeling well because she is starting to feel better and she is starting to actually walk. Here is a video of her walking and falling into Jack.

Poor Ava's been sick for about two weeks now. We are not sure but they are checking to see if it is acid reflux or something else. Initially they told us it was a bug, so Jack has been praying for the bug to get out of Ava. I hope it works! We are ready for life to return to normal!

Jack likes the Dog Whisperer so when Pastor said that whisperers and backbiters would be judged, he asked Matt, "Is he talking about the Dog Whisperer?"

While on a workday at church the other day, Matt was down along with some men digging in the dirt to make a rock bed. Jack said for all to hear, "Daddy? I didn't know you knew how to work!"

Fun at the Fair and Ava Walking

Here are some pictures from our Minnesota State Fair outings


On the park-and-ride bus on the way to the fair


Jack is visiting the pigs


Ava got to ride the carousel with Granddaddy! She liked it for the most part, but she was pretty serious for the ride since she didn't know quite what to make of it.


Jack is riding the bumper boats


If you look close enough you can see the remnants of an ice cream cone from the dairy building all over Jack's face.


I've been trying to get a video of Ava taking steps and I finally got a couple little ones. Tonight she actually took two consecutive steps, but I didn't get that on video.
