The Canyons Were Calling...

We chose a perfect week to visit family and see the pretty fall leaves in Utah.  The sun was shining everyday, the weather was divine, and several of my siblings schedules aligned for some family hike time.   
Whenever we go to Utah, all I want is to be in the mountains.  Luckily my family loves it too.  This day my dad took off work and everyone was there except Trevor and Jake. 
This was around Siver Lake.  
Grandpa with all his grandsons.  
This was up in the Lonepeak wilderness area.  James and I hiked it together then we had a picnic with Nana, Rissy, and Tommy at the bottom.

Andy and I walking around Solitude.

We also spent some time in Heber with the Sullivan Family.  Breakfast is always scenic at their house.

Sunday Uncle Mike made delicious Mexican food and I was able to catch up with the cousins.
I feel like I have all the gold in the world on a golden afternoon like this!  Being far away makes fall all that more special.  I am glad we answered the call of the West.

Fall in Utah...

This week in Utah the weather has been gorgeous.  I've never seen my mom's house and garden look so pristine.  
 The roses are still blooming because there hasn't been a fall frost.
 My mom's nice neighbor Rose invited us to pick pumpkins in her huge garden.  It was so much more quaint than a crowded public pumpkin patch.
 Aunt Katelyn came along.
 The kids have been picking and eating fresh apples from Nana's tree all week.
 James selected his pumpkin and Aunt Katelyn did the big pumpkin pull.
 This is the beauty Rissy picked.

 They took a pretend ride on their old John Deere.  Tommy especially loves to drive.
 Look at the beautiful Draper mountains. I miss them.
 After we picked pumpkins we spent a good hour on her swing set.

 Showing off our goods.
 Next Uncle Zac took James on a spin on his new Harley.
 Yup, our kids LOVE to pretend to drive.  
Great start to the Salt Lake state.
