After reading several blogs about picking out pumpkins at a pumpking patch, I decided that picking out pumpkins that way sounded much better than sorting through boxes and crates full of pumpkins at the grocery store or walmart. So tonight for Family Home Evening we headed down to the only pumpkin patch that we know of in town. Despite the fact that it started raining on us, we did have a good time and hope to do it again next year.

The Haunted Barnyard

Today I woke up and decided that, after staying at home all week because we were sick, Claire and I needed to go do something fun. And since I absolutely love Halloween, we ended up at the Haunted Barnyard at Gardner Village. My mom, sister, and neice came along too.

She wasn't too sure about riding the pony but did stay on for a minute.

She loved petting the goats, lambs, pigs, and calf.

Steph, Rilynn, Me, and Claire

Claire went through the hay maze several times.

And she cheated a couple of times trying to get to the end.

???? I don't have a clue what she is doing here ??????

Seeing the Leaves Change Color

We started a tradition the year that we were married of driving up to the top of the Oquirrh Mountains to see the leaves change color. So on Saturday two weeks ago we hopped in the truck, stopped for drinks and something to eat at Subway to take with us, and were on our way. It was a beautiful drive and the road ends at the top of the mountain right above the Kennecott copper mine so if you look one direction you can see Tooele Valley and the other direction you look over the Salt Lake Valley and down into the Copper Pit. It was beautiful!!

A New Temple

Just a few weeks ago I was telling someone that I would love to go back to my mission and visit my dear friends and that I plan to do that when a temple is built there.....whenever that may be.
So I was just a little bit happy (okay, okay, I was totally shouting with joy) when I heard that they are planning on building a temple in Concepcion Chile. I can't believe that I came home six years ago!!! I love the people in Concepcion and can't wait to go back in a couple of years when the temple is dedicated. I guess I better start brushing up on my spanish.

Visiting an orphanage on P-day

Hna. Cariqueo and I standing in front of our casita....or more commonly referred to as the "doll house" since you had to be pretty short in order to enter without ducking your head. Hna. Cariqueo and I loved this place. And what is not to love....especially when, if situated a certain way in bed, you can look straight up and see the stars at night.

An Apple a Day

Did the birds eat our apples??

Did we happen to get a bad box of apples??

Here is the culprit….and caught in the act.

Apparently, apples are only good for one bite.
