I feel like there is so much to report on. I really need to update this more often. Here are a few activities that we have been up to.
First, we went on the Portland tram the other day. I takes you right up to OHSU with a breath taking view.
We also went to the pumpkin patch the other night, which was fun. Oddly enough, we actually didn't get any pumpkins. We were merely going for the photo opt and to do something festive. We thought we might get a pumpkin cheaper at WINCO. We are cheap, what can I say. We went with our friends, the Knapps. Jackson is obsessed with Maylie. Rightfully so. She is adorable. Seriously, when we get in the car to go anywhere he says these words. "Maylie, Maylie, Maylie". He just can't get enough of her.
We were also able to go to the temple and walk around a bit. It seriously is so beautiful and I am reminded of how grateful I am for my family and all the things that I have been blessed with.

We are alive and well...

I really am such a slacker...I have thought about posting many nights but get caught up in other things. You know how it goes. Unfortunately, there is life outside the blogging world, dang it.
This month has been a busy one for us. My Mom got home from Brazil and is doing so well. She is now visiting family in Utah, Arizona, and California and having a great time I am sure. Wayne's brother Phillip also came home from his mission this month but has already gone back to Italy for a vacation with part of the Brown clan (totally jealous). He is going to hang around and will be back to Oregon State starting in January.
Before Phillip left to go back to Italy, he and Wayne went to North Fork and did a little bridge/cliff jumping. We replaced our camera with one that is waterproof and Wayne is loving it. Here are a few pics/video from their trip.

Our boys are growing up before our eyes. Jackson is saying so much more these days and is totally into jumping off of things. He definitely pushes his limits though and has already had a sprained ankle!!! Crazy huh. But he is a Brown boy so I wouldn't expect anything less. Logan is such a sweet boy. He is smiling so much and starting hold and play with toys. I love this stage as he is interacting so much more with us as well as tracking and starting to be aware of his surroundings.

Hope all is well with all of you!!!
