We're Off To See The Wizard

I love to dress up with my kids for Halloween. Some years are better than others, but this year was fun. Even the husband dressed up, which doesn't always happen.

I guess we need someone else in our family so we can have a scarecrow

Boy #1 was too cool to be the tinman for the school parade so he was a Star Wars clone character

Fun With Starbursts

Last week boy #1 woke up complaining that he didn't want to go to school. Of course, he went and when he came home he told me he was so glad he went because they learned to do this with starburst candies. Isn't school great.

Birthday Celebration

My in-laws recently moved from Oregon to Utah and we are happy to have them so close. Right now they are very close since they are residing in our guest room. We will miss our built in babysitters when they move out. We celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday last week. I made Cafe Rio pork salad and peanut butter chocolate cupcakes. Suzy and Jared came for dinner and we had a fun evening. Happy Birthday, Joyce!

Go Cougars

We decided a day before the Homecoming game that we could attend. The Homecoming parade is always fun for the kids since they get lots of candy, so they were excited to go to the Homecoming game. It was actually a good, close game and the Cougars won. We decided that boy #2 is still too young to sit that long in a fairly confined space.

Happy Boys

The mountains and clouds were quite beautiful and the view from the stadium is great

Hot Lava

A few weeks ago we went on a day trip to Kanosh and while we were there we went to find the nearby lava rocks. After a few wrong turns on a dirt road we found some lava rocks. The boys had so much fun finding rocks and wanted to bring them all home. Luckily, we convinced them that the rocks needed to stay there and we only came home with a few rocks.

The path was filled with wildflowers
