FALL is in the air!!

I can' t believe it is going to be October next week!! Where did September go?
As sad as I am for summer to come to end, I am very excited for fall!
Playing at the park with a bunch of friends!
Ainzlee is hangin on for dear life!!
RaeLynn using her muscles!
Ainzlee got in a dirt fight, she is such a trouble maker!

With fall in the air I have been wanting to decorate a little! But I didn't have
any fall decorations, so I had seen a few things on the internet and gave them a
try!!I made the pumpkins and the FALL block letters! I think they turned out pretty
darn cute! The pumpkins where so easy and I still have tons of fabric left and can't wait
to make tons more! I already had the blocks and the scrapbook paper, so this was a
low budget project!!

We are headed to Hermiston for the weekend to say goodbye to Benjamin!! My
dad, mom, and Ben are leaving tomorrow for a road trip and then curbside drop off
at the MTC on Wednesday. WE LOVE YOU BEN!! The girls and I will be staying
in Hermiston for the week to take care of Caleb. It should be tons of fun!!

RaeLynn loves playing with my cousin Laney who is just a few months younger than her! Ainzlee loved chasing after all the animals, the dogs, the cat, turtles, and the hamsters. Oh yeah and there is a bunny too!

A Wet, Rainy, but Action Packed Weekend!!

Our weekend started Friday with a drive to Hermiston, dropped off the girls
with my cousin Hannah, and off to the temple to go through with my brother
Benjamin for the first time. That was great, and it was awesome to have all
the family there!! Especially Derek and Stephanie, we haven't seen them for
a couple of months. Ben enters the MTC in 22 days!! Saturday morning we
packed up the cars and headed to Leavenworth, Washington to camp for the
weekend with my family! We didn't leave as early as we would have liked to
and then about an hour before arriving to Leavenworth it started to POUR.
We pulled over covered the stuff in the bed of the truck, and finally made it
to the campsite! It was still poring and we had some issues checking in.
Everyone was starting to get a little frustrated and hungry! But we got it all
figured out, set up camp, got the fire going, and had some lunch!! It rained
on and off all weekend, but wasn't bad enough that we didn't enjoy ourselves!
Sunday was Ben's birthday, we sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him, and ate
twinkies! We also went into town and walked through some of the shops!
Leavenworth is a small Bavarian theme town. We all had such a good time sitting
around the campfire, talking, eating smores, and just enjoying us all being
together one last time before Ben takes off! Thanks everyone for such a great
memorable wonderful weekend!! We love you all and miss you TONS already!!
Mom had cold feet!


Derek thought he could ride Ben's long board down the hill
and this is what happened!!












Derek climbed this tree all the way to the top, look closely!




I know there are A LOT of pictures, but I LOVE them all!
