Hawaiian Adventures

Sorry that we've been away for a little while, but we were actually away for a little while. Matt and I, that is. Thanks to Steve, Linda, Lindsay and Aubrey, we were able to travel to Maui to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary two weeks ago (has it been two weeks already?!) and it was fabulous. Brady had a great time reconnecting with Matt's family while we were gone, which made it easy for us to enjoy all of this...

Amazing view from our balcony

It was hard to come back to the real world, but we missed the Bubba and couldn't wait to see him. Next up... Halloween!

Pumpkin Patching

Brady is so excited for Halloween this year! For his first, he was only 10 months old and couldn't even walk. He had zero tolerance for his costume, which made for a really angry lion, and not in a good "in character" kind-of way. This year, he's running around pointing out all the pumpkins, bats, ghosts, spiders and black cats. He likes saying, "boo!" and he puts his hands over his mouth in an "oh-no" fashion when he says, "scary!" We're working on getting him to say "trick-or-treat", but so far only "treat" is coming out (which is the important part anyway). I have a feeling he'll get it right by the big day though :)

This weekend we took a trip to Half Moon Bay to go pumpkin patching and had a great time at Pastorino's Farm. They had a small petting zoo, pony rides, train rides and plenty of pumpkins to choose from. Brady had a great time running from activity to activity; you couldn't wipe the smile off his face. Sadly, there was no hot chocolate to be had... just too warm out!

Feeding the goats, ewwww!

Trip to Big Sur

We had a great summer. At times it seemed like it would never end (it was 96 degrees and sunny last week!), and we liked that just fine. But we also like fall, and we've been yearning for some good old-fashioned football weather since the first kick-off back in August. Today we got it; it rained for the very first time since June. Seriously.

And it was "chilly".

I wasn't a very good family historian this summer. There are a lot great memories that we never got a chance to share. To try and go back and catch you up on them all would be painful for both sides, so let's just move on, shall we?! Going forward, I'll do my best to keep you updated on all things Eatherton, because it helps bridge the distance. Plus, I want this to be a kick-ass baby book for Brady one day!

So, our first fall post...

Two weeks ago, my cousin Aubrey came for a visit and we decided to take a trip up to Big Sur. Simply put, it was a beautiful drive! The fog rolled in and off the road the whole way up and we got out of the car and took a few pictures of the amazing view.
