Family Pictures

Last weekend we FINALLY had our family pictures taken. I've been wanting to do it all year. I REALLY wanted to get them done in the summer with everything green and all of us tan and in our summer clothes (not that we TRY to be tan, we use lots of sunscreen, it just happens. The kids all have Parley's skin). Summer came and went. Fall almost came and went but I have a good friend who is a great photographer and she helped me finally get it done - thanks Diane! Lauren was sick with a fever (which is why she wouldn't let me curl her hair) and I hadn't bought us all new clothes to wear, but I think it actually turned out well. My favorite one is going on our Christmas card, so you'll have to wait to see that one :)

Gardner Village

Last Friday it was "reasonably" warm, it was early day and the kids wanted to do something FUN. For me, free = fun so we went off to Gardner Village. It was packed but fun. It has turned into a yearly tradition to go and see the witches and somehow the "Witchey Poo" one always seems to be a favorite :)

Bear Lake Reunion

Parley organized a little family reunion with his family. We had someone make some condo's available for us in Bear Lake. I think it's safe to say we all had a great time! We missed some and only saw others for a short time but those who were there got to experience some great weather! We couldn't have asked for better at the end of September. The kids loved being in the lake (too cold for me) and had lots and lots of fun digging in the sand. We all left with pink cheeks and full tummys :)
