I know November isn't over, but we leave for Utah tomorrow and I want to get the random pictures up because I will be doing Thanksgiving posts when we get back. 

We have since moved our trash can under the sink with child proof locks, but before then, Jaxson loved to climb in the recycling box to get stuff out of the trash.

Playing with the legos at Barnes and Noble 
We went to a really fun park and this was one of Jaxson's favorite things.  He could rock it and bounce it and he loved it (can't you tell by his expression? :))

This was Jaxson's other favorite thing at the park.  He loved to lounge in it and spin round and round

"Jaxson, where's your tounge?" 

I don't know what this expression is supposed to mean, but it makes me laugh :)

I was having Jaxson help me put frozen waffles in the toaster oven for breakfast, but he put one in his mouth and wouldn't let go.  He ate more than half of it frozen-must be teething :). 

Can't get enough of this goofy boy!

The Zoo

Friday was free day at the Denver Zoo.  It was pretty crowded, but we had a blast.  We went with the Bogles.  Maggie and Jaxson had so much fun looking at all the animals.  Jaxson's favorite animals were the monkeys, the porcupine and the fish :).



We went into a bird exhibit with some beautifully colored birds

The Tropical Discovery...

 Komodo  Dragon

We had such a long fun day at the zoo, we wore this kid out :)

Trunk or Treat, Kayla's Birthday, and Playing in the Leaves

We love fall!  Here are some of the fun fall things we have been up to.

For Halloween, we went to our ward Trunk or Treat.  We dressed Jaxson up as a lion, but he wasn't too happy about that :). 

For my birthday we went to Country Buffet for dinner.  It was one of the best restaurant experiences we have had with Jaxson in awhile.  I think it helped that we didn't have to wait for food and he got to try a lot of different things :). 

Most of the leaves in our apartment complex have been mowed up, but we were able to find some to play in before they were all gone.

The Rest of the Pictures from the Grandma Visit

We had so much fun while our mom's were here!  We took lots of pictures, played outside, went for a short hike, toured School of Mines campus, and just had a good time :).

Jaxson loves to play with the tennis ball.  He will throw it down and we catch it and give it back to him.

One of Jaxson's favorite places to be is on his daddy's shoulders.

We went on a hike up Lookout Mountain.  We took a pumpkin with us to take pictures :)
 If you look closely you can see that the pumpkin is in the air. Jaxson found out that if he threw the pumpkin, it would bounce...

 At the end of our hike, Jaxson decided to throw himself backwards and laugh hysterically, good thing he didn't throw himself off the mountain.
Playing on the fun air mattress.
We made a fun Halloween project while the baby was sleeping :). 

School of Mines! 

We went to an indoor play area, Jaxson loves the slide and steering wheel.
