Welcome November!


{ November 1st – 9th, 2014 }

November has been busy, cold, and snowy :/ …and I am now realizing I have kind of slacked with photos and documenting it…but here is what I got… I did get the new iPhone 6 that has a BETTER camera than my old iPhone 4 & somehow I have taken less photos!!! Working on that…now!!!

+ Kevin had an account in town – Washington Bookstore buyers – and so he invited Ry & I to join him, them, Mike Puccetti, Nick Gendill, my dad, Hunter, & Patrick at the Washington vs. CU game in Boulder! The last football game we took Ryder to, he loved! Good old BYU Football and he still talks about it…so of course, we decided to come along! It was kind of cold, but bearable. Washington ended up winning! OH…and that morning, Kevin showed me some Washington hats he brought home from work so I picked one and decided to cheer for them that day haha. I chose the right team ;) But Patrick does go to CU…ha…next game I will root for them! The stadium was really scenic (panorama shots above)! Beautiful mountains! Just amazing. I had never really been on CU campus but it was sweet! The first half of the football game, my dad, Patrick, Hunter, & I sat in the best seats ever! They were basically on the field and we had a waiter (photos above). I ordered a pulled pork sandwich. SO GOOD!!! Then the second half of the game, the Washington people went down there and we sat up on the bleachers with Kevin, Ryder, & Nick. Ryder was in heaven!

+ Cars Night! My mom was out of town in Hawaii and my dad has been wanting to introduce Cars to Ryder since he hadn’t seen it, so we had a Cars movie night! We ate crappy Nascar food haha, hot dogs, etc. ;) It was actually the lovely Daylights Savings Day so we were all a little tired! Ryder loved the movie! We need to buy this for him sometime soon! Next we want to do a Cars 2 night!

+ Kevin was the sweetest & switched all of my iPhone 4 stuff over to my iPhone 6. I’m loving it! So glad I got a new one! Gosh, my old one was going downhill!

+ Ryder & I joined Kevin for lunch at work…he forgot some important stuff he needed that day ;)

+ We knew the last of the snow-free days were coming so we made sure to hit up the park, even if it was a little chilly. One evening, we met up with Bekah Wilkey & Carmen. Ryder & Carmen had fun chasing a ball around and we ran into some friends from church!

+ Kevin went on a business trip to Newark to meet with Barnes & Noble from November 4-5th…

+ Oh, I voted…Republican ;) (Photo above)

+ Ryder & I took Hunter on a little evening date. We hit up Barnes & Noble (I got a planner), Old Navy (got a camo lightweight coat), & ate at Larkburger – Hunter’s choice (& photos above)! Ryder LOVED his fries and the side of edamame we got. Fun times!

+ We met up with Gwen Valles & Abby DeGraff at Miramont Park. We ate our lunches there and basically I ended up chasing Ryder around a soccer field. He would not stay by the park ha. Oli & Finn & Ryder had fun stealing some boys soccer balls and playing in a lacrosse goal (photo above of Finn & Ryder’s faces smashed into the goal). HAHA.

+ Took Ryder to get his haircut and he thought it was ticklish…it was hilarious (photo above). I asked if he liked his haircut and he always is talking about it and saying “Like it?” & yelling “LIKE IT!!!!”

+ Ryder & I met up with Ashley Bean & Bekah Wilkey at Water’s Way Park… It was the last day where I remember the sun being warm on my back. We ate our lunches there of course and had a good time! Then Ashley Bean sent me an amazing pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe which I made (photo above) & it was SO GOOD!

+ Kevin went on a day business trip to Chicago on November 7th.

+ Ryder & I did Body Define Yoga & hit up Warren Park with Abby DeGraff. The boys liked the teeter-totter (photo above). I think that was Ry’s first time on one and he loved it. It got too cold and windy so we had to leave early!

+ Kevin went to Denver to the Temple because of the Stake Youth Temple Day. Later that evening, we ate at Café Mexicali with my family because I was really wanting it and HELLO, it’s amazing. Definitely had to put that in here.

+ After Church on Sunday, Kevin made an amazing dinner for my family – ribs, mashed potatoes, asparagus, & bruschetta. We had a yummy Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream cake afterwards. It was great!!

Well, it is now snowing hardcore so it is keeping us in a little more…until next time ;)
