Spontaneous Trip to Midway, October 29-30, 2015

"Let's go somewhere,"  I said.
"Ok," Darren said.  Moment of silence to realize he hadn't said no.
"Davis doesn't have school on Friday.  How about this weekend?" (It was Monday before Halloween)
"Ok,"  Darren said.

And so we asked Jackie to see if any rooms were available at Worldmark in Midway.  And there was one room available for Thursday night.  So we booked it.  And we had a great time!  Lots of swimming, some Wii time, everyone got to choose their own dinner (Noah and Eva had cereal, Davis had a Subway sandwich, and Darren and I had Mexican.), and the boys stayed up late watching a movie.  The next day we played tourists in Midway, driving through town, seeing the Homestead crater, trying grilled cheese sandwiches at the local cheese factory, and doing a little shopping in Park City.  With the exception of Noah throwing up twice on the way there (I caught it both times in a ziplock bag!  And he was fine after that), it was a perfect family getaway!

Halloween 2015

This is a massive overload of pictures.  But when I have such cute kids in such cute costumes (if I do say so myself - I made Eva's and Davis's and found Noah's for a great deal), how could I help myself.

First, the ward Trunk-or-Treat.  Darren and I got in on the dress-up fun, too.
Second, Nana's Halloween Party.
Third, the day itself . . .  Halloween!

Picking Pumpkins, October 2015

We decided it was time to let the boys pick their own pumpkins.  Davis started begging to get pumpkins about October 1.  It wasn't until October 27 that we finally went to Pack Farms in Farmington.  The kids had a blast going through the little hay bale maze and then wandering around the pumpkin field looking for their perfect pumpkins.  We carved them the night before Halloween.  Noah would have nothing to do with the gross insides.  Davis loved it.  Until Darren was done carving the face and Davis decided it wasn't scary enough and threw an epic fit.  Good times.  Also a few pics of Noah's preschool Halloween parade.
