Fall Fun!

So much fall fun around here. So far this month here is what we've done:
McDonalds while Daddy was at priesthood session of General Conference. Caleb was super nice and took Brynn with him in the play place, even though he would have preferred to go faster.
The Barnyard Boo: At the farm they set up games for the kids to play. Even had candy treats after playing some of them.

Time at the park before the real cold kicks in. The weather really has been gorgeous the past two weeks. Got to love fall weather!
Cornbelly's: At Thanksgiving Point they have this every year. There was a corn maze for kids (bigger ones too), a tractor that pulled the kids in these barrels painted like cows, tons of slides (usually attached to some kind of wooden vehicle like this one or the one in the background of the lower video), bouncy houses, potato sack slides (super long), a mechanical band of farm animals (Brynn could have stayed and watched them the whole time), rubber duck races (you pump water to make them go faster), a rat maze (a box that kids crawl through and have to find their way out--Caleb loved it) and you'll see below a huge bouncer for kids. I'm sure I'm forgetting something! The place is so big that even though it's crowded, it doesn't feel that way.
We stayed for 2 1/2 hours and the kids never wanted to leave. Derrick had to go to BYU that night so it was just me and the kids. Definitely going back again!

Creamery, Camping and Sewing

 Made this dress for Brynn. She was a perfect little model for my obsessive picture taking.

Wednesday the kids and I met Lynne at BYU. We fed the ducks and went on a walk. The ducks were really hungry that day and when Brynn started feeding them they grabbed the crackers right out of her hand (her hands being level with their beaks). She started crying and I held her while she fed them. At the end of feeding them she said, "The ducks won't eat me."
We then went on a walk and met Kent. Then we went to the Creamery and joined up with Lisa for dinner. The kids loved their food, especially the ice cream cone that came with the kids meal.

Friday night we got a campsite so the boys and Grandpa could spend the night. Brynn and I just went for the evening. Caleb was so excited to go and any time he talked about going he could hardly contain his excitement. We ate hot dogs and smores, threw rocks in the Jordan River and gave the kids glow sticks The kids also loved playing in the tent. It was a fun night.
