Tyler & the Train

Today we went to the mall to check out a Victoria's Secret deal, and then Tyler played in the toy vehicle rides for a while. He saw the little train ride that goes around the south part of the mall and really wanted to ride the train. He threw a tantrum and had to be taken out of the mall and talked to. Poor guy this was his first major tantrum. Once he calmed down, we took him to the line for the train and had him practice his breathing when he started getting upset. He did good and managed to stay calm, so he and his dad got to ride in the blue train car. Tyler was excited and had a good time, though he really wanted to sit in the train engine part where the conductor was. It was such a wonderful experience seeing him so happy, one of the great moments being a mommy!! This was his first train ride so I had to take lots of pictures.

Halloween Fun!

Halloween is a fun holiday in our home because I go all out. This past Halloween was Tyler's first time trick or treating and helping carve a pumpkin. It was a lot of fun! We also got to attend a fun kid friendly party where we had yummy scary treats and a fun time trick or treating with friends! Tyler's choice in costume... pirate!!

San Diego Trip

Back in August we had the opportunity to visit some of our best friends in San Diego. What a fun trip that was. We were able to go to the beach a couple of times along with the San Diego Zoo and Safari park. We had a blast and it was such a blessing to spend time with Scott and Kelli before they move this January to Italy. There was also a lot of great food we got to experience including a burger place called Beef N Bun that we ate at 3 times while we were there. So thankful for this experience!

It's A Girl!

I am a little behind on my blog. Over a month ago Jacob and I found out we were having a girl. This came as a shock due to all the boys we have in our family but we were happily surprised. We hope this little girl will be as sweet as our Tyler and are excited about expanding our little family!
