Carving Pumpkins!

It has become a tradition to have the cousins over to carve pumpkins with us. Travis does a great job at getting everything ready. The kids love it. They have a great time picking out their pumpkin and then the pattern that they want.

Logan did a great job putting his pattern on a carving his pumpkin.

Abby "carving" her pumpkin!

Logan so proud of his mummy!

Abby was set on carving Shrek. I was worried that it would not turn out. I think it does kind of look like Shrek!

All the kids with their pumpkins! We always have such a great time together! We were missing Adrie and Macy. We thought about you guys and wished you were here!

UEA Weekend!!

Travis was hunting over UEA so the kids and I played a bit while he was gone.

Friday we went to the pumpkin patch with our good friends the Petersen's. Conner and Logan wanted to ride their bikes. So I rode with them. It was a lot farther than I thought. I was definitely out of breath by the time we got there.

Parker, Ashlyn, Logan, Abby, Rylee and Conner.

The girls loved the pumpkin cart. They wanted to ride along with the pumpkins!

Saturday was such a beautiful day! My neighbor Jeanne and I decided to take the kids for a hike. Logan did not want to go. I talked him into going by telling him he could invite his good friend Zac. They were not thrilled. Once we got up there and started to hike they were having a great time. They were catching grass hoppers and spotting lizards. The girls were troopers. They hiked the entire way without complaining.

Bear Lake

Every year my side of the family goes up to Bear Lake in October. We love it! Sometimes we have great weather, sometimes we have bad weather, sometimes we have a mixture. This year was a mixture. The day we got there was the best weather of the weekend. The sun was shining and it wasn't very cold. We took the kids to the pool first thing. Saturday was a total wash. It poured rain the entire day. The kids did not care one bit. They have fun no matter what the weather. They swim in it, play ball, ride scooters. The adults on the other hand are kind of wimpy. Sunday was a good day. The rain had stopped but it was a little cold. All the boys went four wheel ridding and shooting. Nobody took a camera so there are no pictures. Darn it! I was so mad. Monday of course was BEAUTIFUL! The day we were packing up and coming home. I did not take very many pictures this year. I was too busy trying to stay warm and dry.
