No boys allowed?

A couple of the girls in my ward and I had a great idea to get together as couples to carve pumpkins, make Carmel apples, and hang out. Apparently the husbands didn't really think it was that great of an idea. I think some of their descriptions of the idea included "lame" , "gay" and an enthusiastic "whatever". One of the husbands put his foot down and said no, and that resulted in the rest of the husbands backing out. So, we decided to make it a girls day and here are some of the pictures...








Apparently the earliest you should carve a pumpkin in Southern CA is the day before Halloween. It only took 2 days for my pumpkins to get moldy, runny, and pretty much ready for the trash(I'm used to Buffalo pumpkins that freeze and are good to go for the whole month). Oh well. Next year we will do it closer to Halloween and maybe the husbands will join in!

Out trip, the cliff's notes version.

Hi everyone! Most of you know we just recently went on a small vacation to Provo, Ut (via a short stay in Vegas...as in one night) for Aaron's mission reunion. He served a mission in the Guatemala City Central mission 16 years ago . They haven't had a reunion for about 13 years so when we heard about it we made special arrangements to go. I don't want to bore everyone with a wordy lengthy post about it so I will give you one picture and one word to go with it. Here it goes... our trip cliff's note style.

Fun Fact Friday!

I'm in Utah!

Okay, that's not my fun fact but we are having a fun time out here. I can't wait to share some of our pictures with you guys.

Since I'm traveling right not I think I will do a fun fact about traveling.

When I was 12 years old we took a train ride from Buffalo NY, to San Diego CA with my mom, sister (6mo) and my grandma. It had been my Grandma's life long dream to do that trip and since my Uncle(her son) was getting married in San Diego we figured it was a good time to take it.
We loved it! It took a long time but we got to see the whole country pass in front of us and no one had to drive. We liked getting out at the rest stops and buying jewelery from the Native Americans.

I have a lot of fun memories from that trip and most people can't say they have taken a train ride across the entire country!

How about you? Share one of your fun facts!
