I love everything about the fall. I know its brief and serves as a prelude for the most miserable few months of the year. I know this because Ashlee reminds me every day, but I still love it.
We took Emmy to "Chalk The Block". It is exactly what it sounds like. Artists come and draw these incredible pictures all over the parking lot using only chalk. They also hand out chalk to kid so they can participate to. The drawing didn't hold Emmy's attention for long but she loved the event. Her favorite part was the live music. She would head out in the middle of everyone and start dancing for a little bit before she would get shy and run back to us. She would get so excited to clap after every song. She would always look around and make sure everyone else was too.

Ashlee and I dropped Emmy off for our first vacation since Emmy was born. We went to Vegas while Grammy watched Emmy for us. It was so nice to get away for a day. We were a little stressed dropping Emmy off. We had no idea how she would do away from us. We imagined a lot of whining and little sleeping. We were told that she was easy. We will never know.
After our little vacation in Vegas we spent the rest of the weekend in St. George. We were hoping that Emmy wouldn't get sick like she has every trip in her lifetime. We weren't able to conquer that milestone. Emmy ended up getting sick and was pretty miserable.
Our trips to St. George are always eventful. Emmy had a night terror one night and it was about the most terrifying thing we have ever experienced. Then the next night we had the hardest time getting her to sleep. After we finally did we put a humidifier in the room thinking it would help her sleep. It may of helped her sleep except it set off the fire alarm outside the door where Emmy was sleeping. It was a couple nights of rough sleep.
It was still a lot of fun. There is nothing Emmy loves more than cousin time.
We spent as much time outside as we could. We took this picture on neighborhood cleanup day. Emmy had so much fun running while everyone was cleaning up. Afterwards we went to the church for dinner where she ran the entire time. The amount of energy she has is almost discouraging.

We took family pictures up in Salt Lake. Emmy did not cooperate at all. She spent most of the time crying. She had good reason to be crying though. It turned out she had a sinus infection, so we couldn't blame her for not being in the mood to smile.
