We carved pumpkins at Grandma's house on Saturday the 25th. Here is a picture of the kids in front of all the pumpkins. After carving pumpkins we headed to the ward Fall Festival and annual chili cook off. I made some chili with no intent of winning the contest. I just knew they needed more chili. The primary had sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. They thought it was great!

Our cute little family at the wedding.
Micah and Ellie had so much fun at the "party." They loved getting all fancied up!

So in the middle of my addictions class we took a vacation to Brian Head (southern Utah) the week of the 4th. For those of you who don't know Brain Head is a ski resort in Southern Utah close to Cedar City. Why go to a ski resort in the summer? For the fireworks of course! They had the most awesome fireworks display I have ever seen! (Erin- you guys will have to take the kids next year.) It was good to see my brother and his family and spend some time with my folks and my Grandma. My brother drove up from Arizona and my parents and grandma flew into Vegas and drove up. It was so fun! My parents were kind enough to watch the kids one day for us so Robert and I could go to Zion's National Park for some hiking. Zions was gorgeous and we had a blast hiking. On the way back down from the cliff it started to pour down rain. We got absolutely soaked! I wish we would have stopped someone to take our picture. I'm sure we looked like drowned rats. It was so much fun!!!
After our trip to Brain Head we had to return to real life. Robert took off for basically two weeks for a couple of business trips while I played the single parent and tried to catch up on some hours at work. Micah had swim lessons at that time too (which he loved). Also during the last six weeks I have been busy trying to get our yard done. Who knew that trying to hire someone to put in a sprinkling system and plant some grass would be so difficult! The phone had to be surgically removed from my head by the time it was over.
Now things have slowed back down to a somewhat normal speed just in time for me to get Micah ready for kindergarten in about three weeks. Where has the summer gone?? I didn't get near the things done I wanted to this summer. Oh well, such is life! Enjoy some pictures from our trip.

The other night we put our weekly Netflix movie in and she was out in less than 10 minutes. Sleep is a luxury sometimes, even during Rush Hour 3.
OK, on to the guy stuff...
My brother Anthony and I took time off a few weeks ago to run down to the new Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele to watch the Utah Grand Prix. They have 4 or 5 different race series that compete all in one day. We got there around 9am and stayed until nearly 6pm. I don't know why watching cars race is such an addiction. Must be the tiresmoke-loudexhaust-180mph-racegassmelling male gene.
