Big Trees & Cavern Adventures...

Me and Brady walking back to the caves after mom and Stacey did the zip line.

Dad, Jalisa, and Taylor.

So Thanksgiving weekend we decide to load up and venture to Calaveras Big Trees. We have been talking about doing this for a long time and finally did.... After a 1 hour and 45 minute drive we arrived at the park to find out the winds were to bad and we couldn't go into the park. We were all so bummed so decided to at least get out a take a picture. We loaded back up and ventured onto the cavern's that weren't to far away. It was a fun weekend. We brought Justin and Ivie's three little ones and it was fun seeing them on our adventure. I can't wait until Linken is old enough to really enjoy it. Here are some pictures of the BIG TREES... cavern pics to come!

Linken's New Milestones!!


He started STANDING UP: on everything!! We came home from church and set him down to play and look over to see him doing this... He is to BRAVE and is not scared of anything. If you notice in the first picture he is doing it with one hand... what a show off!!

He started PULLING himself UP onto his KNEES: on chairs, tables, toys, etc.

He started EATING: whatever you are eating... not a fan of baby food!

Backyard Bonfire...

A few weeks ago we decided to have a backyard bonfire. We roasted marshmellows with the three little girls, Caroline, Haidyn, and Taylor. Linken enjoyed it until the smoke started getting in his little eyes. Here's our little family enjoying the backyard.

Oops! Halloween in December...

Well here is Linken my little "Pirate" playing in the candy we actually were handing out to tricker treaters. We didn't take him out he just helped give out the candy.

Here is little Zoey in here costume!

So these pictures are pretty hilarious... Here is Linken just 3 days shy of 6 months old and he has officially out grown his bouncer... He grabs onto the toys and pulls himself up to his feet until he is standing up.... He is growing up way to fast.

Here's Linken in his little camo out fit including shoes which don't stay on very long. I love that smile... and those chubby cheeks!! I love him to death and cannot even think of life without him!
Here is Linken's cousin Taylor...
