Summer Wrap Up

Now that it's officially fall we've been kicking our outdoor enjoyment into full gear. Scott and I had been trying to get away all summer and go camping...just the two of us. We finally made the time last weekend. We went down to the Carson River for two days. We fished, cooked yummy food, and played A LOT of Scrabble. I'm sure Scott will want a rematch soon because I kicked his butt! We had a blast!

Noah staying with PaPa and NawNaw (my parents) for the weekend. On Friday Mom made an entire dinner out on the campfire at their house. If you've never had some of her dutch oven cookin' you need to invite yourself over.
First piano lessons with Naw Naw.

We went to a GREAT park next to our friends house yesterday. He's getting so grown up!

"Sus Men"

It's been awhile since I've sat down and blogged about this blessed Boutcher life. Life has been full with spending time outside in the dwindling summer days. It's a bit sad to see our nice weather coming to an end but the crispness in the morning air reminds us that skiing isn't far around the corner.

We've been leading a marriage class at our home the last few months called "Homes of Honor" on Friday nights. It's been a great learning experience for us to study more of how God wants us to lead and guide our family and marriage. This Friday will be our last class. Although we're sad to see it come to an end it will be nice to have our Friday evenings free again. Lord willing we will start another class after the New Year.
Noah's starting to talk a bunch! Everyday he picks up more and more words. It's a blast to tell him to say the hardest words we can think of...and he tries them. Our favs are aluminum and rhinoceros. The other day he was sitting on our bed while I was putting away clothes. He bowed his head, closed his eyes and said "Sus Men" translated "Jesus Amen". It was adorable!

Just a few cute pictures to share from the last couple weeks.

He's learned about the pleasure of drinking his cereal milk in the morning.
He gets more of a milk beard than a milk mustache.

A long day.
