This has been a very fun fall and I’ll hit on a couple highlights. First, our friends the Lamoreaux’s were nice enough to let us borrow their bikes and bike trailer so we could take Austin on his first bike ride and he seemed to enjoy it!
Then came along Halloween and although I am not creative (I was a nerd for the umpteenth time) Melissa cleverly decided to dress Austin up as Charlie Brown and he was great!
And here he is with his beautiful mother…
In November, we attended a big fall party and Austin was able to take his first train ride.
They also had some inflatable toys and so Austin got to play around in the inflatable castle.
I’ve noticed that there haven’t been too many pictures of Melissa and I together so I thought I’d include one. This is a picture of us trying to figure out this whole parenting thing – as usual, I’m being the smart husband by listening to my wise wife!! :)
We went on a hike just before Thanksgiving in Catalina State Park and had a great time!
Over Thanksgiving we were lucky to have 2 of Melissa’s brothers, Matt and Trent (with his wife Amy) come down to Tucson. During their time, we went to Peppersauce Cave with Matt and had a great time spelunking.
For Thanksgiving, there is a Dyer tradition where they make candy Turkeys and so Melissa, Trent, and Matt made sure we made time for Turkey-making.
We had Thanksgiving with the Corning’s and it was wonderful. They even had a deep-fried Turkey which was new to me. It was quite the process but it tasted great! Here it is ready to be deep-fried!
We were in charge of a fruit salad and Matt went above and beyond…
It was also fun for Austin to have time with more of his relatives – he loved the extra attention.
Lastly, before Matt left, he and Melissa hiked Pusch Peak and had a fun time together.
It was fun to have visitors because it made us get out and see things we hadn’t seen. Thanks for visiting us Matt, Trent, and Amy and you are welcome anytime - we had a great Thanksgiving and are so grateful for all that we have!
