I finally caught him saying it! Chase doesn't really talk much yet, and this is really one of the only words we understand that he can say....sorry it's so dark, it's raining outside, so all my blinds are shut.

No choo choo

This clip is longer than the other one, so it's a little boring, but it was cute and he was having fun playing with his book. Of course, while I am typing this, Chase is on my lap and could hear me asking him on the video what a train says and he says it!

Mr. Potato head glasses

Obviously Chase was not going to say his only word when I turned on the camera, which is "choo choo" I'll get him though, maybe not today, but maybe tomorrow. I still thought I'd share this clip because it's pretty cute and I know how much is grandma's and grandpa's and cousins and aunts miss him! Enjoy! Don't forget to turn off the music at the bottom of the page.

7 Oaks

On Saturday we took Chase over to a local produce farm where you can buy fresh fruits and veggies...yummy! Anyway, they have this cute area for the kids to play. They have a donkey, which Chase did not like....and some goats and bunny rabbits and cute little animals like that. He really liked this tractor that he could sit on and play!

They also have their pumpkins out now, so we got some cute pictures with those. I'm so excited for the fall, it's my favorite season! I love the weather, the smells of fall and everything else that comes with it! I wish it would just start getting chilly here! It's still been really warm, I keep putting jeans on hoping that it will be cooler, but I end up changing by noon because it's already so hot!

Maybe I can lift it!

Butt mom...

Ok I couldn't resist! Chase was so cute today....I was over at the Skabelunds and Chase must have had a bug bite or something on his butt because he couldn't stop scratching was sooo funny I was almost in tears! Oh, pre-information, I don't usually let Chase run around half naked but he picked up Carrie's full glass of water and tried to drink it....thus spilling the whole cup all over his shirt. Oh well.

This is me showing off my new sunglasses...I haven't worn sunglasses in about 6 years because I don't wear contacts, but there was a sale going on so I got some new frames and a new prescription for my lenses and then the prescription sunglasses. Let's just hope they don't go out of stlye soon because they weren't cheap! I'll show you my new frames when they come in probably next week.


This is Chase's new look. He's been doing this for about, oh, the past week I think. I can't really see any new teeth in there, but if he does, by the way he's shoving his entire hand in his mouth, I would think they would be in the back. So I'm not really sure why he's doing this, but it's kinda funny to look at!

Railroad Park

Yesterday our ward had a picnic at the train park and we forgot our camera! Chase had so much fun that we went back today with the Skabelunds and the Warnicks. The kids love the trains, it's a historic park where they run these little trains. The first few times we went around, Chase cried when it was time to get off! It was really cute! The track is actually really long, I bet it's close to a 5 minute ride each time at least. Anyway, the kids all had fun, that's all that matters!

Yesterday I took a journey up to Portland to go to Ikea! It's new in Oregon, the only one we I picked up Emy on the way, she lives in Eugene and we drove the rest of the way up. Tim's work had me buying a lot of stuff for their new office, so I had to drive a BIG truck, like a real Ford truck. I was scared, but it went fine. Fitting everything we bought IN the truck was another story! It was really fun, I was able to leave Chase with a friend so I had a long day of me time driving in the car and chatting with Emy 1/2 of the way!

Harry Potter

So nothing really exciting has been going on at our house, I'm just wishing that the fall weather would come sooner than later...I'm sick of the heat! To keep me occupied, not that Chase doesn't keep me busy enough, I've been reading book 4 in the Harry Potter series. These books are not as fast of a read as my other ones, so this may take me awhile, especially since it's like 700 pages or something like that!
