Chris and I just got back from Europe (!) and I can't wait to share all about it, but before I post about our adventures I wanted to share about what we were up to in September.
It was a crazy month but so much fun!

Chris ran Hood to Coast and we met him at the finish line in Seaside. It was pretty crazy and there were so many people. It was hot and we had just played in the sand for an hour while waiting for Chris to come in, which explains naked Buck.

Classic family photo:

Bennett and this apparently "famous" dog:
(according to the owner, it has a facebook page with tons of followers)

The Hardesty's know how to take a great  family photo:

We had really great weather all month, it was unseasonably hot actually.
We took advantage and got in some time at Jamison Square:

Bennett turned 4 on the 4th so we took him to his favorite restaurant, The Old Spaghetti Factory:
(how is it that I have a 4 year old?!)

We were seated at a table by the river and we were able to watch the boats go by as we ate:

Bennett was bummed that we ate dinner before the balloon animal guy arrived, so on our way home we stopped at the store so he could pick out his own balloon.
Bonus treat that they got to ride in the race car cart:
(Chris was a good sport, and the boys loved it)

Since we had such great weather, we also went to the park a lot:

I got the boys some cooler weather clothes, and I decided they make Buck look so much older:

I was a bridesmaid in one of my best friends weddings in Southern Oregon, so my mom rented an amazing house for us and her for the wedding week.
The house in the hills above Ashland:

They had some pretty sweet vintage Fisher Price toys that the boys (and I) loved.
(including an immaculate Family Camper and a Hospital)
If I weren't an honest woman, this horse would've come home with us:

The boys while we were out looking for lizards:

Buck took his first steps while we were staying there. Both Buck and Bennett took their first steps the week they turned 16 months...pretty late in the game but I don't mind at all!

Me and the Bride getting ready:

The wedding was beautiful and at the last minute I decided to ditch my super stylish platform wedges for more sensible flat sandals and I'm so glad I did...walking in those things on the bumpy grass for the rehearsal was not pretty.
Bennett at the wedding:

It was hovering around 100 degrees while we were down there, but we ventured out in the mornings to  cool off at some water parks:

I also turned 30 on the 18th:

and then two days later we left for Europe for 9 days!
I'm not sure how I'm going to break up the posts yet, but I took a ridiculous amount of pictures so expect a photo overload soon!
