Grandma and Grandpa Visit Fall Break AND Jack's Blessing

My parents came up to visit during their (my dad's) fall break.  They stayed with us for 3 days.  They picked the perfect time to come visit because it's just GORGEOUS here in the fall.  The leaves are beautiful and the crisp cool air has been so fun to go out and do things in.  The first night they were here we went to Bear River Bottoms where they had a corn maze and hayride.  We were expecting something a bit more and honestly it was a bit of a bust but we still had fun watching Boonie have fun and being out in the cool air.

They had a giant stack of hay for the kids to climb on and run through.  That was pretty fun.  The only other highlight of the trip was when I took Boonie to the outhouse and he freaked out thinking he was going to fall in.





The next day we took a 45 minute drive out to Bear Lake.  The drive was amazing through the canyon.  I love living where there are seasons and so many beautiful changing trees.  Boonie hasn't quite grasped the concept that when it's cold outside it's too cold to go swimming.  We couldn't keep him out of the lake.




It was pretty dang cold plus the wind was blowing... not exactly the best weather to visit Bear Lake but it was still pretty and now we can all say we've been there.





Boone walks on water.


Grandma was nice enough to walk across the water with him.  YOLO!!!



Marae wanted to go across so badly too... sorry little girlie.


Boone got his pants all wet and we didn't have a change of clothes so Grandma came up with this idea to make pants out of his jacket.  GENIUS!!  This is how he went to lunch.


That night was Boonie's last soccer game.  He didn't quite grasp the concept this year.  He basically just ran around with the group of kids and he'd fake a fall down anytime anyone else fell down.  But at least it got some of the much needed energy out!




Friday we went down to Salt Lake.  We've been telling Boonie about the Salt Lake City temple ever since we were moving out of our house back in May.  We have a picture of it and kept telling him that is where we were moving to.  So he was happy to finally see it.  We walked around the new City Creek Mall and temple square.

Marae looked really cute so we had to take a picture of the little dolly.





Saturday night my mom went to witches night out.  We had a blast window shopping, eating yummy food, and dancing.  I'm so glad we were able to go again.  I love my mommy.



My mom won this trick or treating plate.  She was standing on lucky number 17 - and her birthday was on the 17th of that month!  That's why she won... but then she gave me the plate because she's nice.




Sunday was Jack's baby blessing.  He is the sweetest little thing.  I got to hold him during sacrament meeting and he just slept on me the whole time.  I'm officially in love with that little guy.



After the blessing we went to Ryan's house for dinner.  Boonie came out dressed in a spider costume and bit my feet while Jack dressed up like a gangster.  Just the normal happenings with my fam.
