"Sunshine On My Shoulders Makes Me Happy..."

This year my sister Whitney and niece Bailey came up from SLC to attend our annual Pumpkin Walk. I have to say that this year so far was the best; not just because of the company, but because of the really interesting exhibits and best of all the weather! Really it was an amazing day! Thanks Whit! Enjoy a zillion pictures. Only a few days until Halloween, woo hoo!

First Pumpkin Patch

The kiddos and I headed to Idaho Falls for Fall Break and went to our first official pumpkin patch. It was very fun and a very kid friendly place. We went with some family and picked out pumpkins, went on a train ride, and played with some cute kitties. While in Idaho the kids got to go to the Idaho Falls Temple, to the GPOD factory where Idaho Potatoes are packaged and distributed, but best of all the kids got to play with their cousins. Good times!

Fall, Family and Football

This week the kids and I enjoyed the fall weather and colors outside, we even made it to a park before the rain hit. We also went to Wyoming to see Daniel's brother, Tui play high school football. I have to say that he is doing awesome this year, especially for his senior year. He has over 1,000 rushing yards, the most in the state and was just crowned Homecoming King, must be rough Tui, must be rough. :) We also went to the White Out, Utah State game. This week for fall break we are off to Idaho while Daniel travels to New Mexico with the team. Until next time....
