Oooooo, Spooky!

I have decided that Halloween is my favorite time of year. I told my mom this the other day and she said that it has always been my favorite time of year. It use to be just because of the candy, but now I just love the weather, the colors, and of course all the Halloween activities! I had way too much fun making Spencer's costume this year. When Mike saw the boots he said that I had officially gone overboard. Spencer loved his costume so it was worth it!
Hiking up Mueller Park Canyon by our house.
Spencer was alien and Lexi was a black cat for Halloween. They both loved their costumes!

Annual Jackson Hole Vacation

Every fall we go to Jackson Hole with our good friends the Freeman's. Our goal is to see lots of wildlife and we did this year. We haven't seen a bear for a couple years, but we did have a bull moose cross the street right in front of us which was pretty amazing! It is such a beautiful place especially in the fall. Every time we go I cannot help but feel so grateful for the amazing earth Heavenly Father has blessed us with!

OUR MOOSE!!! Talk about being in the
right place at the right time!

We took a boat over Jenny Lake and hiked to a beautiful
waterfall. Here we are the the Freeman family.

Our little family. The colors were amazing!

Enjoying September

Spencer is in preschool again this year. His preschool is right across the street which I love. Convenience is key for me. He loves it and is learning new things every day. Lexi is in a little play group with a couple friends. It makes her feel like she gets to go to school too.
Mike, his buddy Scott, and I rode the Logan to Jackson Hole ride as a relay team. I found out I was riding about 2 days before the race, but I was really excited to ride. I did 40 miles and Mike and Scott each rode 80 miles. The weather was great and we had a ton of fun.
While Mike and I were in Jackson Hole for our race, Spencer and Lexi stayed in Logan with some family. They captured monarch caterpillars and put them in jars. It was so neat because we got to watch them form coccoons and then come out as butterflies. They were so beautiful and Spencer and Lexi has so much fun watching the process. Here is Spencer with one of the butterflies.
Spencer and Lexi at the Gateway Mall. They had a circus elephant parade down the middle of the mall. My kids would do almost anything for a balloon!
