Arizona State Fair

 I took the kids to the Arizona State Fair along with Allden's preschool class.  We got in for Free!  We had a great time!  First we looked at all the animals.

 These were some of the biggest roosters I have seen.
 We liked the llamas.

 Alana's favorite was the butterfly exhibit.  You could pick up the butterfly's with q-tips that had some nectar on them.  Alydia and Allden were a little scared to pick them up.
 The kids got to go on 3 rides....bumper boats was a hit!

Bumper Cars....and they also went down a giant slide and Alydia went on a carousel ride.  It was a fun day!

Schnepf Farms

 We took the kids out to Scnepf Farms for the first time and had so much fun!  They had a dog show that the kids loved!  These dogs would catch around 18-20 frisbees in 60 seconds!

 The Cool Bus!
 We watched a BMX show which was pretty good.
 They had a petting zoo with lots of goats and Alydia likes goats now!  Anden was a little scared of the animals if they got to close.
We also had a delicious dinner with chilli and chicken with a live band.  We went on a few rides, they had a roller coaster, we did the 4 acre corn maze and we did the spooky train ride.  We had a great time!

Cabin in October

 After our fun vacation in California we drove up to Utah to our cabin and met up with Derek and Emily and Jenna and John.  It had snowed quite a bit the last couple days so we found a beautiful white blanket of snow surrounding our cabin.
 We can't go to the cabin without visiting our favorite national Park Zion!  This is our usual picnic spot with a grassy play area for the kids to run around.  It was a beautiful day.

 Allden is becoming quite the hiker.

 We did the Emerald Pools's quite long but fun.
 The kids liked playing in the sand at the end of the hike near the little pool.
 I love this place!
