Fun times

Busy day today! Kaden seems to be feeling a bit better, after a week now of teething torture (for all of us, but he is the poor little guy who's hurting!) We had dinner with Jon's folks tonight. Kaden had fun entertaining Grandma and Grandpa. And we had some good chocolate cake for dessert. Thanks Peppridge Farm!

Kaden adores his Daddy, can you tell?

Kaden and Dad

Kaden is a daddy's boy. They both love to be outside. Jon and him mowed the grass the other night, maybe one of the last times since winter is on it's way. I guess you can tell that I'm a proud mama! Love my boys!


Got a new pic of my BFF, Kelly from college today. She and her family have been vacationing in SC, enjoying the sun and the beach. Hard to imagine since it is 39 degrees here this morning. Here is the Ornberg family...Dave, Kelly & Cohen. He is 6 months old already!!!

Such a beautiful family!!!

We went out to Salcha this weekend, while Jon was hunting and spent the night in his folks cabin. No running water, electric or bathroom...but a nice pullout couch and better than a tent! It was a frosty night of sleep, with no heat but each other. We had a blast! (no moose though). Will hopefully stay there again in the future!

the leaves changing are beautiful!!

Gold panning at El Dorado

On Saturday, we spent the day as a family going gold mining. We made $25 in gold flecks. Not much but something to get started. Kaden thought it was great fun, especially the train ride to the gold claim. And he wanted to put everything on the ground in his mouth!

"hmmmm, there's gold in them rocks!"

Autumn is here in Fairbanks!

Well, fall has arrived in Fairbanks. The leaves started changing about two weeks ago and they are beautiful right now!!! We took Kaden for a drive today to see the colors. It was in the 70s and quite the treat. A beautiful day! Took some pics in case the colors disapper soon (fall is usually about 3 weeks long here) Enjoy!

10 months old now! Hard to believe!!

he loves playing in the water

hanging with dad...too sunny to trick a smile out of him! :)
