Family Harvest Rodeo

Yesterday was our Stake's annual Family Rodeo. We went last year when Braelynn was just an itty-bitty thing and couldn't wait to take her this year. She loves, LOVES farm animals...good thing we live out in South Chandler!

We had plenty of dinner, dessert, and dust...which we are feeling the effects of today...but it was worth it!

Braelynn got to run around with the goats and sheep, ooo and ahh at the bull, watch the horses, and run around with the bazillion other kids.

Earlier in the day we went for a picnic at Discovery Park and I have some photos of that as well. Enjoy!

3rd Anniversary

This past Wednesday was Kent's and my 3rd Anniversary. We really lived it up this year! Last year Braelynn was just this little-itty-bitty thing and we managed to grab a quick bite to eat at the food court with her.

This year we got a sitter and everything! We went to the Temple 1st and then headed to the Asian Noodle Kitchen for dinner. I had been there a few times in college and raved about it to Kent all the time...the food was good, but the ambiance was a total let down. They used to have a Jazz band, dim lights, candles, the whole bit. Not this time. Bummer.

BUT we realized that was the 1st time we'd gone out to eat alone since Braelynn was born. Unfortunately we also realized that it was our 1st actual real date since she was born. We've gotten sitters before, but for lame stuff, not romantic stuff. We will definitely be doing this again!

I'm also excited, because Kent got me a bread knife. I know it sounds cheesy, but I've been wanting one for so long. I don't know how we didn't register for one, or how I let myself go 3 years without one, but we have one now! Woo hoo!

Kent likes that I'm practical, I like that he gets me exactly what I want :) I guess we'll "stick-it-out" another year! Haha!

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Well, I did it. I chopped off my hair! 6 inches to be exact. It was quite exhilarating. I didn't realize just how much hair I had until I saw 3 people cutting it.

It comes just below my chin and I am loving this freedom!

The hairdresser at first refused to chop it off when I told her what I wanted. I then explained to her that I have a 1 year old and another on the way. She then accepted my wishes and everyone got to work!

After 2 1/2 hours, the cut was complete and I was a new woman! I've had short hair before, but I didn't cut off as much to get's usually a gradual thing.

I'd post pictures, but I'll save you the horror of the pregnancy zits and 3 month flab that has taken over my body.

In other news Braelynn has joined a play group. There are 5 other little kids that meet every Thursday for 3 hours and all of us moms take turns watching them. It's nice to get that little break. It's amazing how much you can get done in 3 consecutive hours of uninterrupted work!

Kent has been really busy meeting with bankrupt companies and putting together deals. He's really enjoying this new direction in his "career."

Other than that we are just gearing up for the holidays. Halloween has never been big for either of us, but we did get Braelynn into a little sailor outfit for a few hours. I wanted her to be a ladybug, but I locked the 2 of us out of the house that day for a few hours and got a little behind. Whoops!
