The past couple of months has been very busy, and I have not had a lot of time to post, so this is some major catch up.
Some of you know that we made an unplanned trip out to washington at the beginning of the month. Geoff's grandmother passed away on September 30th, so we packed our bags and made the long drive out to there so we could be with his family. We are so glad that we went. We wish would could have gone under better cirucmstances, but we are still very grateful that we got to go. We ended up staying one extra day so that we could do something fun. We drove to Hood River and stopped at a whole bunch of apple orchards, then we made a stop at Multnomah Falls (my pictures don't do it justice).
It was cold outside when we were walking to the falls, and Emma didn't want to walk so our strong daddy carried both kids to the bridge.
The best orchard we went to was Mt. View orchards, they had these humongous apples...Emma had a great time sampling all the apples, and when we were finished we left with about 40 lbs. Yum!
I was so proud of Emma, I asked her if she wanted to feed the goats and she said yes, but I didn't really think that she would...after watching me do it a few times she stepped right up and did it.
James loves to color...he loves to do just about anything that his sister does.
One day we were there we went out with some of our other cousins...we ended up having lunch at McDonalds.
Here are Emma, Brigham and Gracie eating there happy meals.
This is up American Fork Canyon, we went up one Sunday afternoon and had a BBQ. It was pretty windy, which made it cold, so we just hurried and ate and drove home. While we were there we did get to see 3 deer come through. They stayed for a bit, it was great to watch them.
I absolutely love this picture.
