Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Eva was insistent on being a cow this year, so here is our cute little cow.

For Eli's school he had to be a story book character so He and Wesley chose to be
Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe.

We got to see a Halloween parade at Eli's school,

we had our traditional dinner in a pumpkin,

lit our scary jack-o-lanterns,

and did some trick-or-treating.

Art scared a few people along the way.
It was a great Halloween. It is fun that the kids are old enough to go trick or treating. This was our first time visiting a actual neighborhood. Eva got the hang of it really quick and did not want the night to end.

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument

The first time we drove out to Tent Rocks, it was closed due to the fires. Needless to say we were all very disappointed after the hour drive it took to get there. But this time it was open and well worth the trip. It was such a beautiful, fun little hike that everyone enjoyed!

So beautiful! We recommend this hike to everyone. If our two year old can do it so can you!

Sunday Drive

We drove up to Sandia Peak today. It is always such a beautiful sight. We are so lucky to be able to see such an amazing view and not have to work to get to the top.

Eli's Birthday Festivities

Eli had a couple parties this year, it started out with a pirate cake by his sweet Aunt Telia.

We also went to the Zoo with Aunt Telia and cousins.

He got to celebrate with his class at school.

And we had a Transformer Party for Eli at the Park with some friends, what a lucky kid. He was in Birthday Heaven for a couple of days.
Happy Birthday Eli!

Balloon Fiesta

My Mom and I took the kids to Albuquerque's famous Balloon Fiesta early in the morning.

It was cold and rainy so none of the balloons actually left the ground, but many blew up their balloons just for fun. It was an adventure.

October Conference in Salt Lake City

This year we got to go to Conference, one of our families favorite traditions that has been put on hold while we were living in the East. Here we are sitting on the grass listening to a session.
Cool inside view of Salt Lake City Temple, Eli loved this!

Salt Lake City Temple,

Eva by the fountain,

A huge bonus to the trip was seeing Jed and watching a session at his house. We also got to see Jenny Miller and visit her new, beautiful home there.
The Boys and Eva helped Jed move his dirt pile.

We visited This is the Place Monument, it was our first time and we loved it. Such an amazing view. We saw our ancestors name there. Also they had a little farm with animals that the kids loved.
