10 months and 2 1/2

The Graham house is wild right now with Finlay crawling all over and Isla talking up a storm, dancing everywhere and telling Finlay 'No!' to nearly everything he does.  Still, she's incredibly loving and protective of him.  She's transitioned easily to a big girl bed, though night time potty training has still been a bit tricky.  Finlay is still content as can be, Mr. Go with the Flow.  We are all starting to gear up for the upcoming holiday season just around the corner!

Parker Pumpkin Patch

My mom, dad, sister and nephew were up this past weekend so we headed to the Parker pumpkin patch at Flat Acres on a warm Saturday afternoon.  Isla loved the straw bale maze, petting zoo and most of all the rubber duck races.  We concluded the trip with a hayride and dinner out.

Neighborhood Fall Party

We had our third annual neighborhood fall party on October 13.  We had a great evening with many of our neighbors that have become good friends. 

4 Mile Park Fall Festival

It was a gorgeous Sunday at this Cherry Creek park.  We went on a hayride, snacked on apple cider donuts and picked out the perfect little pumpkin at this fall festival. 

Fall Colors

It's been a warm and sunny fall and the colors have been beautiful.  We headed to the mountains earlier this month to catch the Aspens in their prime.  It was so beautiful, and once we got back home Isla kept asking to see the 'yellow trees.'

Holly Fair

The whole fam loaded up and headed to Holly for the fair the end of September.  We got to see Porter and Colby play football at the new field.  The kids all rode on a float in the parade.  And of course we saw all the livestock at the sale barn, which was the highlight for Isla.

Dance Class

Isla started a weekly ballet and tap class in September.  She is loving in and loves showing her new moves to everyone, though maybe hip hop would be a little more to her liking.  Her teacher Miss Belinda is so incredibly patient with some wild little girls!

Geri and Tiff come to Denver

Cheers to good friends!  My dear friends Tiff and Geri - along with Geri's oldest son Brody - came to Denver in mid-August for a lazy weekend of eating, lounging in the sun and sipping cocktails.  We love getting together and laughing, reminiscing and catching up.

Country Girl

We spent a couple of weeks in Holly in August and Isla loved being out on the plains.  She loved feeding the horses, the action of the clinic and spending so much time with her cousins.
