Silver Lake

This week we went on a drive up to Silver Lake. The leaves are starting to change up there and it's beautiful! While we were up there we saw a moose on the side of the lake. As we walked around the path, we kept getting closer and closer until there was just a bush between us. He was eating from it and I was nervous we would scare him. Hope you can see him in the pic, it was amazing to just sit and watch him.

Looks like we have a Ludacris fan!

This video is now two months old, but we were finally able to get it to load through YouTube. She's a spazz, but we must say she's got some moves!

I LOVE the fall!

Fall is hands down my favorite season of the year. Here are many of the reasons why I love it so much:
I love the crisp air when you walk outside in the morning.
I got engaged in the fall and it was gorgeous and romantic!
Utah Football- go Utes!
The vibrant colors the leaves turn.
Canyon drives to see the leaves.
Corinne's annual family Halloween's the greatest and cutest thing ever!
The cute fall clothes and purses.
The excitement in the air, I especially felt it when the new school year would start.

Whenever I think of the fair I think of the time I went in elementary school with two of my friends. All that comes to mind is how I felt after riding the tilt-a-whirl....oh so sick. The rest of the night as we walked around, I had to keep stooping down to not lose my churro. I also remember the tacky google eyed, colorful, sand filled figures we made. At the time I thought it was the neatest thing! Anyway, my mom got us free tickets and so we went out on the all you can eat ice cream night. It was the best! An enitre tent is full of different vendors and they have all kinds of ice cream, ice cream sandwiches, and creamies. We were in heaven, we LOVE ice cream. We also walked around and saw all of the animals which was fun. Caroline loved the bunnies and the sheep! Thanks mom for the fun evening!

Caroline update

Washington D.C.

Over Labor Day weekend we took a trip to our nation's capital and visited some dear friends, Jess and John Gardner. It would have never been possible without them....thanks guys! We had such a good time hanging out and watching our crazy kids interact. Even though I did an internship in D.C. for 4 months, it was amazing to realize how much I missed seeing while I was there. It seems that my priorities were a little skewed as an intern...(i.e. using D.C. as a "gateway to the world" as our bosses put it, we took trips to New York x 4, Boston, Martha's Vineyard, Vermont, the Outerbanks in North Carolina, and to top it off, a weekend in Iceland). While seeing the world, I apparently missed many of the highlights right in D.C. Adam went to Washington to see Washington, he wanted to know what every statue, building, etc. was and the story behind it. It was fun to discover new sights with him, like the Library of Congress pictured above. Also pictured are the Washington Monument and the WWII Memorial. On our last day there we got to see Abby, Chase, and Sadie Cannon who were moving back there and just arrived that day. They were so nice and came to say hello. It was the best trip.

Congrats Hailey and Chandler Bello

We want to congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Chandler Bello. What a beautiful wedding in one of the most incredible places in the valley. We are lucky to have them as great friends and to be invited to all of the festivities. It was a lot of fun being a bridesmaid and attending the bridesmaids luncheon. Walking down the aisle was the best, just like being in a movie!!! We love you guys!

Paradise: ISLAND PARK!

Ok, so we're a little behind in our posts so we need to make up for lost time! A lot has gone on the past couple of months. I got a new job as a nurse practitioner for Valley Mental Health and I am working full time. Scary, I know. But Adam is busy at home with Caroline, finishing his thesis, and studying for the LSAT. We think this opportunity will help us appreciate each others roles later in life. Another thing that happened is we moved to Holladay to a cute little "cottage" as it was listed. We have also been really enjoying ourselves! One thing we were able to do was go to one of our favorite places on earth (Gretch, thank you, thank you, thank you for the invite!)....Island Park, Idaho. Here are some highlights from the trip....
