Fall Fun

I have had a wonderful first half of November! With the help of the Hord family, I was able to fly down to AZ and surprise my family on the 1st. On Friday, I went on the Father/Daughter campout with my Dad and sister (you can see a picture of them with some of the YUMMY teryaki sauce we picked up on the way). It was fun to spend time with my family and visit my home ward (and mission prep class...it is the BEST). Joseph and Elizabeth Hord were also down there that weekend (trying out for the Easter Pageant). The three of us flew back to Salt Lake on the same flight and got lunch together (Wendy's) after arriving back in Provo.

This past weekend, Becca and Reid were able to fly out for a visit. Some family friends hosted a baby shower for Becca, and it was a lot of fun. Reid's mom did the food, so of course it was amazing, and they have a lot of great people there. They also had a really fun and creative activity at the shower. There were several plain white onesies and special fabric markers for people to use in decorating them! It was great! I took a couple pictures of Lauren's masterpiece. Ü

Today, I got to go with Becca to the BYU Museum of Art (one of our favorite places to be...lots of good memories Ü). You can see a picture of us in front of the building that a nice girl (enjoying her lunch on a bench nearby) was nice enough to take for us. We looked at almost everything in the building, and we also got to visit briefly with two of her (well, our) former art history professors. We then headed across the street to meet up with Reid for lunch and ice cream (delicious, of course!) at the BYU Creamery. Happy day! ...And a beautiful one. I am also including a couple shots of the fall leaves and blue sky taken today in the courtyard of my building.

I hope you are all having a fun fall!

Jake's Homecoming 2007

Jake went to homecoming last Saturday. Here are a few pictures for your viewing enjoyment. The dinner was held in Debbie and Jon Monk's backyard. If you look closely you can see their son Chandler.

A few notes on Jake's outfit. That suit is new and is Jake's first missionary suit (that was the agreement: he could get a new suit if he got one he could use for his mission). The shirt and tie and shoes will be staying home but the suit is a certified missionary suit with two pairs of slacks (both of which have a reinforced crotch, but you probably didn't need to know that).

I think next time mom or maybe even Jake will write the introduction (smile).

Silver Lake Fishing Trip with John, Jen, Jessica, James, and Heather!

On Saturday November 3, 2007, we got up early to go hiking and fishing up American Fork Canyon. The hike was long and exhausting. We were impressed that James and Heather's dog Fender made the hike without a problem! We saw a total of 12 moose while hiking up to the lake and almost got chased by a cow and calf moose, which was kind of scary. James caught three fish, Jen caught one, Jessica caught one, John caught one, and Heather caught one. This was Heather and Jessica's first time fishing!

Ellie Mae at the 2007 Arizona State Fair

Yee-haw! Elena's clogging company performed on center stage at the Arizona State Fair last night. I think the last time I was at a state fair was on a fourth grade field trip to the Utah State Fair.

Anyway, Elena put on a great performance. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy. She couldn't talk Kristin or me into going on any of the "go around and around till you puke" rides, but we enjoyed being with her and sampling the state fair cuisine. The smoked turkey drumstick was great. We also enjoyed some indian fry bread and kettle corn. Washed it all down with a hunk of chocolate peanut butter fudge--that is my kind of outing!

Great job Ellie!

Grand Canyon, Grand Vistas, Grandchildren, oh my...

Here are some pictures from Grandpa over the last little while.
I don't have a description of the first several but starting with the Grand Canyon we have:
"The first 2 are on the North rim as we came down to see you.
The second 6 are of a trip to Kent's Lake and several of nearby Anderson Meadow lake with fish jumping all on Beaver Mountain and hour and a half from Paragonah.
The last six are of the Rexburg Temple, Moose creek where we camped for several days and went to Church at the chapel near Mac's Inn and Mesa Falls on Henry's fork of the snake river."


Labor Day Quick Trip

Labor Day Quick Trip

Diana and Melinda drove up to Utah to move Melinda in to her new digs. Joseph was able to come down from Rexburg with his Uncle Kirt and Aunt Brenda and surprise them. They had a great time. They spent the night in Paragonah on the way up and got to see the new trailer and John and Jen and gang. Then they moved Melinda in and had a party with the other free gangs up there. Then Sunday night they were with the Jamison cousins. Here are the pictures.
