The Pumpkin Patch

This month we went on our annual outing to Pack's Pumpkin Patch in Farmington. The kids love to ride in the wheelbarrow.

Such a beautiful sunset! I love it that this is only 15 minutes away from my house.

My little Wesley boy

JJ loves to do silly poses

Wes loved running around in the hay maze

I couldn't get McKenna to hold still for a good picture

And of course it wouldn't be a family outing without someone throwing a fit. Just as soon as some nice person offered to take our picture, McKenna got mad about something...I can't remember what. Oh well. This may be the only picture with all five of us in existence.

McKenna's Naptime

The other day McKenna fell asleep on the couch, which is not uncommon for her. But then I looked over and saw that she was sitting up... but was still asleep.

At first I was totally creeped out. She sleeps with her eyes open a little bit.

But after assessing the situation and making sure that she was not
b.)A zombie
JJ and I decided that it was pretty funny. So we started posing with her.

When she woke up she didn't think it was as funny as JJ and I did.

My Mom Goes on a Mission!

My Mom was called to serve in the Europe Area Office in Frankfurt, Germany. She will be serving for 18 months.

Here we are in the Car pulling up to the MTC. Mom said that she wasn't nervous, but was very excited.

I like it that they make the young Elders unload all the bags for the senior missionaries.

Here's my Mom in her little dorm room at the MTC. Ten years ago she dropped me off in a similar room at Utah State!

Kissing McKenna goodbye. Sad!

Wesley's turn! *sniff, sniff* He won't remember her at all, I'm sure!

One last photo before Mom goes in.

It was exciting, but also really sad! We had an emotional goodbye and she was off to her new adventure....And then the next weekend I broke her out of there and we went to the Mall and out to lunch just like old times. :) Now she has been in Germany for a week. I miss her, but I love it that we can talk on the phone. Just yesterday we talked for half an hour!

Good luck on your mission, Mom!
