Pumpkin Patch

No October trip would be complete without takning the time to go to the pumpkin patch. The girls had lots of fun going through the corn maze and also picking out pumpkins. Courtney had to help the little girls. Of course they had to have tiny pumpkins because they are so little, or so Courtney said.

Barnyard Boo

For those of you who aren't from around here, Barnyard Boo is a fun little Halloween activity for small children. We were lucky to have Dave's whole family(except his brother Dan, we missed you!) come for the weekend

Of course there was lots to do with Halloween being so near. We went to the farm at Thanksgiving Point for a little Halloween fun. I think both Courtney and Ali were more happy that it was a farm, then the fact it was decked out with Halloween things to do. Highlights of the trip were when they got to feed the ducks(those of you that are loyal readers know this is always a favorite) although they feed them corn instead of bread this time.

Another was getting balloons. Ali got a black cat that soon turned into just a long, black balloon. Courntey got a pink, princess wand. Also to mention, but not really a highlight, was the headless horsemen. Courtney got pretty scared to see him riding around on a huge white horse but with no head. I even thought is was totally creepy.

5 Mile Run

Dave and his Mom

ran 5 miles in the annual Riverton Pumpkin Run. They both did extremely well. Dave is still complaining about his feet hurting him but I am very proud of both of them for braving the cold weather and running a not so short distance of 5 miles.


Once again, we got snow this weekend. This is the first snow of the season that has actually stuck to the ground. When we woke up on Sunday, this is what we saw.
