an adventure

a few days ago Molly and I decided to go for a walk. I was excited to get outside and enjoy the beautiful fall day. The views from our neighborhood are incredible so taking a walk is always enjoyable.  Molly however was not excited and decided to cry most of the time. (I guess she didn't know we were having fun).  We walked down to the mailbox, looked at the three new houses being build on that street, then feeling ambitious I thought it would be fun to walk up to one of the nearby playgrounds. The sunflowers were everywhere and smelled wonderful.  However I did learn some things about going for a walk with a baby:

- inclines that you hardly notice in a car are actually very steep when you are pushing a baby stroller

- bring water when you are pushing a stroller and it's 80+ degree's outside

- bring an ipod to at least blend in with the crying

a message from Molly

Matt had to go to Florida on a business trip and as you can see Molly has been devastated ever since. She tries to hide it but I know she just really really misses him. 

We both miss Matt so much but are very happy he has this opportunity. WE LOVE YOU!!!!!

We had our first real family outing yesterday. We went up to Snowbird to celebrate bratworst at the German Oktoberfest. Molly was really good, and we got to testdrive the new baby sling thingy that Camille got for her birthday.

Check out the bottom left picture...this is Molly's new trick. I took this right after she landed a back flip from a laying down position. This is how excited she was as soon as we got home from the trip.
