Christmas in California & Denver

We were lucky to get two full weeks off at Christmas to spend one in CA with Christine's parents and the other in Denver with Tom's. Ava got some great grandparent time!

We had a little bit of rainy weather but we made the best of it

Lots of walking and a visit to Golden Gate Park

Halloween Fairy

Luckily, I got a few smiles from the little one before she came down with a fever. She missed trick-or-treating on Halloween night but we know how cute our fairy was!

Fall Fun!

Ava discovered how much fun raking leaves can be this fall.
She had a ball playing in them!

Go Broncos!

As a surprise to Daddy, we got dressed for the occasion last Monday.
This is Ava's outfit for every Sunday now.

The Yaleys Start Construction!

With another one on the way, we've decided it's time for a bigger house. We started construction in mid-September. Ava is getting familar with large equipment and her favorite new word is "tractor". Everything is a tractor on the property!

Pumpkin Patch!

We couldn't go to the pumpkin patch in Portland this year but we found our own!
Ava went with her friends Zack, Owen and Max to pick out pumpkins this weekend.
She loved the farm animals and playing in the corn the most. Unfortunately, we noticed that there was a fingerprint on our camera lens for most of these but they're still pretty fun!

Camping at Little Molas Lake

Late in September, we got away for one last weekend of high altitude camping before it got too cold. We all enjoyed a beautiful camp spot, a good camping meal and a great hike the next day.
