It was a great day yesterday-we enjoyed the great weather and spent time together as a family.
It started out with Race for the Cure-here in Des Moines almost 25,000 people participated and I joined the Kaduce's in memory of Rebecca's mother, Linda Lou.
It was great to get out and enjoy the day for a great cause. We then joined family and friends afterwards for lunch at the Kaduces.
We then finally got the chance to get our pumpkins for Halloween and Thanksgiving, we picked out pumpkins, gourds and indian corn and will get DJ's Halloween pictures taken with the decorations. I will get those posted shortly!
I have a new picture of DJ that I just think is adorable so, I am posting that.

Well it has been a quick week! We have been busy getting ready for Mommy to return to work----:( and DJ to head to daycare.
We also took a trip to Waterloo last weekend and visited with friends at a gathering Tracey and Christopher had for us. It was great to see so many friends and visit!
DJ and Christopher had to have a picture and Christopher will be a great babysitter.
We also did a mini run to Daycare today, DJ did a great job...Daddy and Mommy were a bit more emotional. I had to take the picture of his first day at daycare...it is too cute.
I weighed DJ yesterday..and we are estimating he is about 11 lbs...not to bad! He is getting bigger and changing so much daily we cannot believe it.

We had a very busy week and had lots of visitors and had a great trip to North Iowa. We were able to travel around the Des Moines area and went to the park on Wednesday night and visited with the Kaduces's. DJ loved his first park playdate.
On Thursday, DJ and I visited my job and stopped by Devon's work for a vist.
Friday the visitors started! Grandpa Mau and Uncle Dillon came to visit as well as Aunt Danielle and Uncle Connor and Cousin Nico. It was great to have them here all weekend and to share time with everyone. I have lots of pictures of the two cousins and the grandparents.
On Saturday, we all watched the Iowa game and it was a good game!
Sunday, we drove to North Iowa to visit Great Grandma and Grandpa Butler. It was nice to finally introduce DJ to Great Grandpa and had the great luck to see Great Aunt Becky and Great Aunt Ed.
Lots of Pictures to be posted and more travels next week, think DJ and I are heading to Waterloo for the day!

DJ had more visitors this weekend...Uncle Bob from IL came to visit. They had a nice time on Friday night getting to know each other.
It was great to have Bob visit and come back to Iowa and see the house and us since the wedding. I have attached a picture.
Last night was a rough night....we were up ever hour, it appears that fussy and gassy DJ came to visit. Once we finally got past it this morning around 1100 am...then this afternoon has been better. It was a rough....12 hours though, with little sleep.
Looks like we will have visitors this next weekend with cousin Nico! Danielle, Conner and Nico will be coming from KC and Grandpa Mau as well as Dillon and Sara we assume as well..
Can't wait for more company!
The second picture is of DJ watching the Iowa game today with Daddy...it was a rough game and you can see DJ threw in the blanket....:D

We had many visitors today and it was great to have everyone over to share time with DJ. It was very nice to have Great Grandma Butler and Great Aunts Becky and Maggie too. Especially to see Grandma again, on her lunch break!
Here are a few pics and a great one of Daddy and DJ.
