8 Months & Army Crawling

This is a month of many first!!
First time in a shopping cart. Ryder felt like such a big boy, he made sure to smile at everyone we passed in the store. 
First time in a swing at Aurora Reservoir. He enjoyed it to say the least.  

He is having fresh sweet potatoes, avocados and bananas. Yes, BANANAS! I decided enough time had passed to try them again and now we split a banana every morning. Yay! He also started eating proteins and loves the turkey/veggies mix.

He loves the Earths Best Organic brand.

Eating straight from the squeeze packs!

We visited Red Rocks Amphitheater. 

Drank from a straw for the first time!! 

Army crawling! 

With Pooh Bear within eyesight, he gets a little faster everyday. 

Look at this guy! He is 19lbs now!

We were at the Colorado Rockies game but, it was postponed due to a water main break. Next time... 

These two make me melt...

Hope August is going wonderful for you all.

Auora Reservoir

Yesterday we went to the Aurora Reservoir to learn about animals. If you know me, I'm all about animals... I should have been a veterinarian. 

Here we are at the AWQUA Lounge. We learned about local wildlife and what tools they use. There was even a puppet show. Ryder was a little distracted watching the other kids but, had a pretty good time. 

We also went on a short nature walk and learned about birds.

After, we played on the swings for the first time. He has a blast! 

Hope you all are having a nice week!

Quick Trip Home (pic overload)

We took an early flight home SATURDAY to make our friends wedding.
Ryder was up, playing quietly the first flight and fell asleep on the second plane.

The beautiful bride, Jessica.

Her dress was stunning to say the least!


Their first look... 
Hope you two are having an amazing honeymoon. Love you both!

Day 2 - SUNDAY
Early breakfast with Grandpa at Great Maple.

The Wilson men 

After that we headed to my sisters engagement party.

Gina one of the bridesmaids and Ryder. 

The newly engaged couple!
I am so thrilled for them. My sister could not have chosen a better man to marry. 
Welcome to the family!

We also celebrated my sister and mom's birthday at the same time. =)
Happy birthday you two!

A little snooze before dinner.... 

We met up with my Dad and Step-mom for dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. 
This is one of the things my husband and I are missing in Colorado. You can't beat authentic Mexican food in San Diego. 

Here we all are after dinner - happy and full!

That was an eventful, happy and exciting trip home! 

We love and miss you all already!
