Family Vacation!

Here are some of my favorite pics from our Colorado Vacation~We went to the Olympic Headquarters in Colorado Springs. It was actually pretty neat and the kids enjoyed it because the Olympics were fresh in their minds.

This is on our friends', the Dyers' property. Everyone in Colorado owns their own tractor you know. (Okay, not really)

We went to this really cool place called Miller Farms where you go on a hay ride to pick your own vegetables...pumpkins, onions, potatoes, lettuce, carrots, etc. It was really cool, but we couldn't exactly take a lot, knowing we were going to have to fly home. After we picked all our produce, the kids loaded up the wagons to transport all our stuff. It sure was fun!

Our dear friends, the Skagerbergs..all six of them with one more on the way! We all stayed in Estes Park for a couple of nights. We "hiked" around a couple of small lakes and the kids (and adults for some reason) were obsessed with throwing rocks in the water.
"Friends and our girls"

On our last day in Estes Park we went to the lake in town. There we saw about FIVE DOZEN elk! It was so neat. These things aren't afraid of people at all and we watched them for awhile, while Jeff tempted fate and got a few up close pictures of one buck. Then the kids once again threw a few rocks in the lake before we left for home. Great memories to last!

A few Fall Photos

Yes, I realize that it is now Christmas, but I'm hoping it's not too late to post my fall photos.

I think JD thinks he'll really be able to pull the sword out of the stone.

Shelby was determine to get her pic taken with Jesse.

Our Sunday School class went apple picking in Tehachapi.
It was a perfect fall day for it. Thanks Brit for the great picture!

Papas is just content to hold his grandsons!

Of course, I'm not a huge fan of Halloween, but I love dressing up my kids! And when they can barely talk, it is so cute to hear them go trick or treating.

"A Lie on to a Pan"

I know I'm so behind in blogging! I figured I'll put a couple of Halloween pics up first and then work my way back to the rest of October, but this isn't really related. It is Jason (yes, it is on Halloween) singing "Thy Word." Okay, maybe only grandparents and aunties can appreciate the cuteness of if, but they'll see this!
