Autumn Time!

Bad news first: Can't sleep. :P That's why Im posting at 1 am. haha!
Good news: IT'S FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fall is my absolute favorite season. ^_^
This fall should be especially good because Im starting it off with a VACATION! First one in 2 years people! That is why my blog has already taken it's Halloween Ensemble, since I will be gone for 2 weeks and unable to change it when October comes.
This is hopefuly going to be the best vacation ever. It's me and 4 other friends. We're driving to St. George (stopping on the way to have dinner w/ my lil sis), staying w/ my aunt then heading to vegas early for a few hours. Then we're heading to Cali that night, going to DISNEYLAND (you can imagine my joy...haha!) saturday. Then we're flying out sunday to somewhere out of the country...(first time I've been out of the country too!)...Guess where...
We're going to Mazatlan, Mexico!
We've got this amazing suite we're staying in. Im so excited! It's a much needed trip.
Back to the fact that it's now AUTUMN. Here's some more good news. We have PUMPKINS growing in our garden!!!!! It's amazing. I love it! It gives it a Cinderella feel. :)
This is the biggest one. We have about 6 PUMPKINS growing!! It's so exciting!
Well, unless something REALLY interesting happens before I take off on thursday, you won't be hearing from me for 2 weeks! SAD.... or not.... ^_^
Have a great beginning of FALL!!

Truly Magnificent

Utah never ceases to amaze me. It's beautiful, majestic, gorgeous, wonderous, you get the idea. So tonight, we just had a crazy storm blow through, from the east, which isn't normal (it's actually happened a couple times this week), and it brought with it, one of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen.
I love where I live!
Breathtaking
Crazy Awesome!
And a rainbow

What a wonderful gift we had this evening. :)

Carnival Of The Animals

This adventure actually took place mid august. Im behind. :P Can you guess where we went?
Kenna, give them a hint...
The ZOO!!!I havn't been in probably 10 years. My friend Jen came into town on her way to Fl and we had to come up with an adventure she would remember forever! (I know there are zoos everywhere, I was running low on ideas that day. But it ended up being SO much fun.)
We went at a great time! There were lots of cute baby animals! Here's the baby giraffe asleep. Sweet Dreams!

Who knew we would measure up to be the size of adult gorrillas?

Here's the mommy snow leopard and if you look to the right of the pic (your right) you can see the baby snow leopard sleeping by it's mommy's tail! So sweet. :)
I think we had more fun taking pictures with the statues of the animals than the actual animals...

Here's kenna, jen and I enjoying the day out in the sun.
Zoo Adventure=SUCCESS

More Adventures

Here's another random update...
Tonight I went swimming for the first time in 4 years...uh...really sad. But now it's happy. I forgot how fun it is! I will never let myself go 4 years without swimming again!!
Pretend this is me in the photo below, swimming so beautifuly not Esther Williams.
I finished my scarf!! :D Unfortunately I didn't have enough yarn to make a real scarf. It's much too small. But it's complete and Im ready to move on!

Cabin trip #2 The Dixie Gang!!
These are some of my favorite people in the whole world. The "Dixie Gang" is a group of best friends. When our parents were in college (Dixie college, thus, the "Dixie Gang") they gained everlasting friendships and we all still get together often. Not as often as I'd like, but every couple months or so. They are amazing and so much fun to be with! Im so happy we got to all spend the weekend together at our cabin. :)
Here we have Jaron trying to eat kenna. Tsk Tsk Jaron!


So cute! Renee and Bert.


Dad playing golf. Awesome Huh? :D




Me, mom, and Terri sitting on the cabin porch.


Alicia and Jessica on top of the world!! Jessica was an adoptive member of the Dixie Gang this weekend. ;)


Tyler is brave. I couldn't climb up in fear I wouldn't be able to get down. Haha!


Cute Melanie. She had just braved the FREEZING water in the mine.


Zach about to enter the mine.
Kenna after sorta braving the mine. Well, actually she was a wimp. You can see how cold the water was with this one simple picture. haha!


Kinzie and Pixie sitting around the camp fire. We are NEVER bringing Pixie to the cabin (or anywhere else for that matter) again! And now the poor thing is sick as a dog...


Beautiful view from the mine, looking down towards the cabin.


THE MINE!!


Sunrise from the top of the world. Breathtaking. Awesome photography skills matt!
