Fall is falling

It was our last chance! The lift will be shutting down until the ski season starts. I grabbed Pete, Hun and the girls for our favorite hike. The weather was perfect and the scenery spectacular. I loved every second of it. It was the much needed destressing that my brain and body needed. We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

Welcome Autumn

October OneWe welcomed October in by spending the day by the pool! How fantastic is that!
(unbelievable that it was snowing 5 days later ... only in Utah!) Notice the water feature along the side of the pool added by Peter.

To top off the day ... the McPhie's arrived from AZ . We were so excited to get our hands on that baby!

The rest of the weekend was spent enjoying conference. Some of us got more out of it than others. hehe
Everyone loves visiting Aunt Sari's classroom.

Emily and I have been VERY productive. I took a day off work (a much needed mental health day) for us to bottle our famous spaghetti sauce. We also got a batch of dill green tomatoes and a new salsa. Aren't they pretty?

The best part of the week has been snuggling and kissing and loving this baby boy. I managed to get away from my studies and responsibilities to play this week. It was nice to have an excuse to take some breaks. We love having the McPhie's visit and can't wait for the holidays!
