{LaSt CaLL FoR SuMmEr}

Since our days of Summer are quickly coming to an end, we thought it would be a nice getaway to go to St. George for the weekend. We spent Thursday to Sunday down there and took full advantage of the 85* weather. Every year my Dad comes up to play Basketball in the Senior Olympics, so we had to go do and support him. We didn't get to see him play but it was still nice to spend some quality time with him. He took the boys to do a round of golf and Eric almost beat him. Tatum loved to drive the cart.

Our friends Scott and Natalie went down the same weekend and stayed at their family condo only a few blocks away from us. There place was in a nice gated community with an awesome pool. We didn't let that pool go to waste.

We didn't have Tatum's suit until later so he had to wear Angeline's swim bottoms with a regular diaper. His diaper was so full that when he walked he would waddle like a duck! It was pretty funny.

Tatum and Noah are finally to the age where they get along really well. They entertained each other the whole weekend. They would lay in bed together and watch Nemo, take baths together, they even got into trouble together...thats baby powder...on my bed!!

When we got back it was still nice weather so we decided to go to the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving Point. Everyone had a great time. Tatum loved the go carts, train, the slide, the animals, but he sure did not like the haunted house!! We took him in thinking it was made for kids so it won't be scary. Well Tatum hated it. He cried the whole time and when we got out he just kept saying "carys, carys"...we are so mean :]

Here are all of the boys, Satch is being Satch and not wanting to be in the picture...

Look at Tatum's face when he saw this clown...he was so unsure about her until she gave him a balloon sword!

Every time the train would go by Tatum would stop and stare, if the line wasn't so long we would have gone on it over and over again.

We sat him with this pirate and Tatum didn't want anything to do with him...I can already see how he will treat Santa.

He ran away as fast as he could...

We went on the Haunted Hay ride where they told the story of sleepy hallow and then the headless horseman came after us. Again Tatum was a bit scared...

Even though everything scared Tatum he still had a great time and didn't want to go home.
