For Labor Day, we went to Southern Utah to go camping with Jessica's family. We stayed in cabins near the Big Rock Candy Mountain. When we went out for a walk, Peter was able to capture this photo. We both thought that is was really cool.
While there we were able to catch up with all the family there, go four wheeling for a bit (no we did not take Sven with us, he was napping) and just relaxed. Sven enjoyed being outside without it being super hot, and just crawling around on the grass. He also watched all the ATV's driving by and thought that they were fun.
Jessica's grandma brought different colored sand and bottles to make these fun sand pieces.
He really wanted to drive, but he just had to pretend while it remained off.
Sven just disappears with his jacket on.
Sitting around the campfire, which Sven loved. I think the boy in him came out when the fire was built.
We had lots of fun being out and about on the weekend.
Sven is growing so well. He hits 9 months today. He has started to crawl everywhere. With that he has learned that there is so many fun things he can reach. To curb this we had to get a gate for the kitchen.
Sven trying to break into the kitchen.
I can reach it!!!!!!
Sven playing in our new pool.
We did buy a pool. We had seen it on clearance at WalMart all month, and waited until it dropped low enough. Now Jessica and Sven can cool off during the day, and just have lots of fun.

We put him in his camo right in from of the fire place in our new home
Fun at the park he is getting so good at playing and he has just a personality
For my birthday we took a day trip up to the Trail of 100 Giants. These are redwood trees that are about 2 hours away from our house. It was so much fun and we got the change to cool off in the moutons.
Family with the tree. I love that you can see Sven peeking around peters back
Peter is a tree huger and Sven liked touching the tree.
It Just goes up and up and up
We were walking on the trail and we saw this sign. then next wee saw that 2 big trees had fallen down on the trail. Crazy that these trees would fall down. I am guessing it made the earth move when they fell
This is Peter at the roots of one of the big trees that fell down
Sven wanted to help me eat my cake he also loved the birthday some.
Sven has learned to hold up his head. we are still working on his sides.
He loves to laugh and play.
