Master of the Stairs



Dillan has mastered the stairs finally! He can go up and down and thinks that it is great. We still keep the gate up at the top and the toy chest at the bottom because even though he has figured it out, we still think he isn't allowed to play on the stairs by himself.

Petting Farm


























While we were in Zions the local town of Springdale had a petting farm. I always thought they were petting zoos, but this one was definitely a farm and labelled as such. Dillan thought the animals were cool and you could even feed the buffalo!

Zions







The Carling side of the family takes an annual family outing once a year over UEA weekend. We try to meet somewhere in the middle of San Diego and Salt Lake City so that not everyone has to go too far. This year we went to Zions National Park. It was a lot of fun and we all got some good exercise.

The leaves were changing colors and it made the hikes absolutely beautiful. We hiked to the opening of The Narrows, Emerald Pools, and the brave boys made it back from Angel's Landing without falling off!




Dillan fell asleep in the backpack that Uncle Paul was carrying since Jeremy went to Angel's Landing. I ended up pushing Bradley in Dillan's stroller since both Aaron and Jenn went as well. It was a great trip and we had good food and a overall good time.

Congrats to the Red Sox!


I will probably get murdered by Ramiro for doing this, but Clint bought Dillan a Red Sox outfit when he was born and since the Padres didn't make it to the World Series we have to sport the winning team for Clint. So here we go!


I sent a picture to Jeremy on his phone and he responded by saying, "He sure is a cute little traitor!" Isn't that the truth. Jeremy is a Rockies fan since he is from Colorado...so really, Dillan isn't following either one of our footsteps right now.

Happy Halloween



Halloween was pretty peaceful for us. The monkey got dressed up and we visited the grandparents in North Ogden and then my boss. Everyone loved his costume. He was the cutest little monkey ever. It was good to have everyone together since I had been away at Wood Badge the previous weekend and went back on November 1st. The weekend before halloween we went to Zions and had a lot of fun/exercise. These pictures are all from that trip. We dressed Dillan up one night and went trick-or-treating to the rest of the family to show him off.
