Anniversary Trip

We took an overnight trip to Park City to celebrate our 10th anniversary.  We spent the night at the Chateau, which was an amazing hotel.  We loved sitting by the fireplace and watching the snow fall.  We also enjoyed a delicious dinner at Chimayo.

Hogle Zoo

Each fall for the past few years, we have taken a day trip to Hogle Zoo.  This year was no different.  Some new exhibits were open, including the exhibits with seals and polar bears.

Playing in the Leaves

We have some big trees in our backyard, which makes for a lot of leaves in the fall.  Although it makes for a lot of work to rake up and bag the leaves, it also makes for a lot of fun to jump and play in the leaves.

Pumpkin Patch

As in past years, we went to the pumpkin patch to do the hay maze and pick out the perfect pumpkins to paint and carve.

Brigham City Temple Open House

We went to the open house for the Brigham City Temple with some of our family.  Our tickets were for the last day of the open house, so it was really busy.  But it was really great to take the girls to see the inside of a temple.


Clara started preschool this year.  She was so excited to go to school!  She goes to preschool for a few hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and there are two other three-year-olds in her class.  It's fun to see the pictures she colors, hear the songs that she learns, learn about the things she learns about.
