October 2014 Summary

We really enjoyed the fall weather and spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying the beautiful fall colors. One of our favorite memories from the month was having a picnic up Provo canyon under these beautiful trees.

We enjoyed watching General Conference. 
Joe took James out to dinner before going to the priesthood session. 

 We visited my Grandpa Hinkson.

James kept busy with Kindergarten. One of our favorite parts of the day is walking to and from his school to drop/pick him up. 

Ali loves this sign hanging on the fence and every time we pass it thinks she is so smart because she can read it. "I love you, too!"

James and Ali finished up Soccer. It was fun to have them both play at the same time! I couched James team which was an adventure. James thought it was awesome that I was his couch...I know that won't be the case for long.

We went to Jaker's Pumpkin Patch three different times. We loved the hay ride, corn and straw maze, big slide, haunted house and hunting for the perfect pumpkins. 

Our favorite part was the baby animals, they even had a baby kangaroo.

We had lots of family visit and had a great time hiking the "Y" and eating ice cream at the creamery.

 We fed the ducks at the duck pond.

We carved our pumpkin family. James thought it would be cool if we all had square noses so that we looked like a family. Hannah got really into carving and loved the pumpkin guts/seeds.

We went to lots of Halloween parties...I think 4 different parties:)

We all dressed up as Winnie the Pooh characters which Joe was not thrilled about but the kids talked him into it. The kids and I love Winnie the pooh and the kids ask to wear their costumes whenever we watch the movie:)
