Fish Hatchery

Yesterday my Mom and I took Parker to the fish hatchery for the first time. He loved seeing all the fishes and watching them jump for their food. It was a perfect day to venture out towards the mountains. I am sure it won't be our last trip.

These were the smaller fish. They had bigger ones too.
We took a little walk in the woods. We didn't make it very far cause Parker wanted me to hold him. So that was when we knew it was time to turn around.
He found this huge stick and was running after my mom and I with it. Another time he grabbed a smaller stick and was hitting a random older guy with it. I was so embarrassed. What kind of mother am I?
Parker was so fasinated with the drinking fountain. I think he liked it better then the fishes.

Summer is over

A couple of weeks ago, Chase and I got to go to Utah to see his younger sister Chelsea be sealed in the Temple. We had such a great time with his family, and were glad that we could be there for Chelsea's special day. We left Parker here in Oregon with my parents because we figured it would be a much less stressful trip with him here. So we not only got to go for a nice wedding, but we also got a little break from Parker. We missed him by the end of the trip and were so ready to come home to him. Thanks Mom and Dad for watching him, and thanks Caldwells for a fun week! The beautiful bride and her husband. Chelsea looked so stunning in her dress! Tara and I got to do her hair and make her perfect for this big day.
Chase and I looking so excited. It was really hot outside. And black is not the best color in the heat.
Here is the family all in our black and red. The boys looked great in their suspenders too!

All the Beautiful brides maids!
While we were in Utah we got the chance to go see a soccer game. Real Salt Lake vs. Chicago Fire. We went with my sister and her husband Shane, and Chases little brother Channing. It was quite a good game. The first half was a little boring and slow but the second half picked up, and the game ended in a tie. It was my first experience at a MLS soccer game, so it was a good first experience.
They had this group of Hispanics who played this loud music the whole time, and sang the entire game. They were quite intense. I think they had drank quite a bit before the game started.
We also got to visit one of my best friends from college and her husband. Stef and I spent the day together and then were met by our husbands later in the evening. Stef made a fabulous dinner for us. I think she was afraid I wouldn't like it, but I am proud to say I was quite impressed cause I have since made it here at home. For those who know me really well, you know I am quite the picky eater. So good job Stef!!! To end our perfect night with them, Justin picked out a fabulous movie for us to watch. I think Chase and I were the only one's who stayed up and finished the whole thing. It was a pretty lame movie! So never watch Rock Band, it's a waste of time.
So we had a great week with family and friends!!!
