November News

Rune turned 8, so we jumped!

Even the old people got in on the action

With a day off, we took a hike to enjoy Fall in the large...

and the small.

 The salmon were spawning so we visited Fauntleroy Creek down the road.

We were not disappointed.

Thanksgiving and Dagny's birthday found us in AZ enjoying some remarkable weather.

Three Cheers for cousins.

Blowing out her ~candle~

 The sun was baking, so we swam.

A major event of the week was Rune's baptism. He got to share the day with Olivia & Isabella. 
This kid has brought and continues to bring us major happiness.

(in the warmest November night ever, I think)

 This month we said goodbye (again) to these people. They happen to be moving to London this time, so I don't think a visit would break my heart (even if it breaks the budget). There is no one quite like the Kerrs, and we are so glad they have put up with us sleeping on their blow-up mattress for the last 4 years and counting.

December- Christmas in Arizona! Counting on more sunshine and time with family.


October 2012

Took a major road trip to Colorado this month. Dropped by Utah to see some friends and family on the way.
 Cute cousins in Stansbury

Lifelong best friends/uncle&nephew at SugarHouse

Two of my Girls live in the 801.  

Visiting with the Saragers in Provo Canyon

One final pit stop before Colorado: Arches National Park 
What an amazing place.

Delicate Arch

Double Arch

 And then we finally met up with my parents, Broc's parents, and my sisters' families at my parents' place near Ouray, CO.

Corkscrew Gulch

Lots of high mountain passes = lots of anxiety for yours truly

Looking down the "road" LC just traveled

Imogene Pass

And to finish off October: 
Every year Rune has two costumes (it just seems to happen that way).

Costume 1- Robin Hood & Little John

 Costume 2: The Lumbers

Broc working on his prize-winning pumpkin

October is over and it feels like the holidays are bearing down on us (as is the weather). November will hold 2 birthdays, 1 baptism, and 1 turkey dinner with all my family. Can't wait!


Sep Highlights

The highlight was definitely a visit from my youngest brother and his cute family:

late season berry picking
off the ground pear sharing

Another highlight was the Puyallup Fair:

 impressive produce
 so many options...
 show dahlias

And the highlight of the Puyallup Fair was Rune's first and only mutton bustin' attempt.

One final September highlight was getting LC transformed into LC Dos:

September has brought beautiful weather and we are sad to see it go, but October should have some highlights of its own.
