Fall time

Fall is such a great time with kids. I daresay my favorite at this point. Summer was a little stressful always worrying about sunburn and car seats getting too hot. Fall has cooled down enough but is still pleasant enough to play outside. The anticipation of the holidays is so much fun.

We made sure to attend a few fall festivities. The scarecrow festival at Thanksgiving Point was so fun. Terran ran from scarecrow to scarecrow. the we crested a hill where there were food trucks and bounce house and he yelled "Whaaaaat in the heckers?!" and raced toward them. We played in the nice weather and bought some cotton candy. Sis hung with me the whole time and we just enjoyed the ambiance. 

While the guys were away working, we went with the Sullivan's to a pumpkin patch and farm in Ogden, where the biggest hit was the giant slide. Terran got into crazy tricks on it and Sis and I even went down a few times! We then went to a trunk or treat/carnival at Hill Air Force base. Terran loved the scary trunks and the man walking around in a gorilla suit!

The fall weather was so nice this year that I made sure we went out in it as much as possible. In addition to playing on the swing set and riding bikes everyday, we also hit up the mountains to see the leaves.

We went to Bridal Veil Falls after Kenna's physical therapy one day. It looked like it would rain but I really wanted to go since we were down that way. It was so quiet it was eerie, and Terran kept asking if there were werewolves in the mountains, which creeped me out, but the silence with my two babes and spending half an hour throwing leaves in the river and running with them until they disappeared was a beautiful memory made with my little loves. We had so much fun we went back with Dad a few weeks later.
