Utah/Paxton's Blessing

We went up to Utah about a week ago for Paxton's blessing. It was great to get up to Utah and see the family as well as the fall colors. We took a drive up Hobble Creek Canyon and that is where these pictures were taken.
On Saturday we went over to the Fall Festival in the park in downtown Spanish Fork. That was fun and the kids got to ride a horse!

On Sunday we went up to Summer and Steve's ward for the blessing of Paxton. After we went back to their house for a brunch and to pick some of the apples off of there tree. It all went well and it was good to get back up to Utah.

Fall is Here!

This past weekend we all went up to Flagstaff to see the fall colors. We were a little early, but it was still nice to get up into the mountains. We stopped by and saw Max & Demeree and then drove up to Snobowl and took the Skyride up to the top of the mountain (11,500 feet elv.) It seemed like a good idea at the time, but taking 5 little kids on a ski lift is a little scarier than we thought. Gracie did her best to try and throw herself off of the ride and the twins did the same. It was pretty cold up on top-- about 28 degrees! We then drove down through Oak Creek Canyon and then Sedona on our way home. These rides through the forest and trees make John feel normal (i.e., like he is back in Utah).
