WEEnie Roast up the Canyon!

It's that time of year! Fall is definitely coming on. Beautiful colors, a chill in the air, and a campfire . . . what could make a better scene for weenies and s'mores?

Onion Day Carnival

In typical "Payson" style, we kicked off our Labor Day weekend with the Onion Day Festivals. There is something about a carnival that I just can't resist. Of course the main pull is to go for the kids, but I have to admit that there is something about funnel cakes and carmel apples that makes it impossible for me to stay away. We had a blast and didn't want to leave.

McKenna and Matt had to practically pull Tytan on this ride, but he laughed the entire time.

Matt was being too cool for a photo opt.

This is the ride that Matt desperately wanted to go on, but was ruined when he found this out . .

Tytan didn't care he just thought the bear was cute.

We had to compromise on this ride, which was a little anti-climactic for the big kids.

Tytan Turns Three

So, Tytan's birthday was on August 10th, yes I am a little behind. I can't believe that it has already been 3 years. We decorated the house so that when he woke up on the morning of his birthday there were balloons and streamers and presents on the table. He couldn't have been more excited, of course no pictures of all this!  Anytime we left the house that day he would ask me where his birthday was, because we left it at home. That night my parents put on a big party for him and his twin cousins that turned 9 and that whose birthdays are the 10th also. It was so fun to get together with everyone. We love you Tytan.

Things that make up 3:
*Running, non-stop
*Playing baseball, football, soccer, basketball . . . (I think you get the idea)
*Snuggling and reading books
*Prayers that include everyone he has ever met
*A smile that melts just about anything
*Teasing his brother and sister 
*Adores his daddy
*Puts a smile on his mom's face everyday

How old are you?
This is his new camera smile :)
Let me just mention these are his new glasses that they ordered the largest frames instead of the smallest. So the poor kid had to wear these until his real frames came in. Bless his heart!
P.S. He dressed himself to go out and play football, hat and all!

Of course the favorite present of the day . . . BALLS!
