Lots of pumpkins

Halloween is around the corner and so far we have 4 pumpkins outside our door. We just seem to keep collecting them! The boys and I met up with the Hart family and went to Gilcrease Orchard to pick pumpkins today. It was surprisingly green and full of lovely fruits and vegetables to pick. And did I mention in they have the BEST apple cider donuts in the world?? Despite a crazy meltdown towards the end by Andrew and Emily, it was a fun morning.

A few days in D.C.

Our last night in Maryland, we took the boys down to the mall. It was a beautiful night and the area was full of people. The boys loved eating ice cream while we walked around the monuments. 

Deep Creek (Part 2)

The last week at deep creek Bryson was able to join us. Danny got up wake boarding, we had crab night (delicious) and the highlight of the week was the Richards' challenge. The blue team (our team) won! Danny knocked out his tooth on a tree during a race- it was wild! We took a lot of boat rides to get ice cream, played croquet, and roasted marshmallows on the campfire. It was a perfect summer week!

Deep creek 2014 (Part 1)

We got to spend 3 glorious weeks at deep creek again this year. The house keeps getting more and more full (14 grand kids under the age of 7!) but the cousins have a great time! 
 
we were fortunate enough to have the Neal family come visit this year. What a treat to have them thre for a few days!! 
Canoeing the Youghiogheny River- one of our favorite activities at the lake. 
Emily's first pedicure :)

3 boys and their first day of school


The boys all started school the past week. Danny was a little nervous, as was Andrew. Surprisingly James was not nervous at all! Maybe because this is his 4th year of preschool (poor kid!!).

Halloween and Kirtland

A few days after Emily was born, my dad came into town and we celebrated Halloween. The boys were all Ninja Turtles and they could not have been cuter! My mom planned a special Halloween dinner and then the boys, my dad, Bryson, and some neighbor boys (Avi and Cobi) went trick or treating. It turned out to be a very rainy and cold night, but that did not stop the boys from collecting a huge bag of candy each!










Later we all went to Kirtland to see the church history sights.
