A Post Well Deserved

These last few weekends have been a blast. Mom and Grandma were able to visit from St. Louis and we had a blast with them. We took mom rock climbing, which see rocked at. She came in town for the LDS Relief Society Broadcast or in other words a giant, global meeting for the women in the church broadcasted from Salt Lake City.  It was amazing to hear the inspiring messages and peaceful words.  

While they were here Rachael, Scott, Grandma, Mom, and I explored the Alpine Loop.  We went for a hike through the beautiful changing colors and visited the spot where Scott and I got engaged almost exactly 1 year ago.  I love this time of year when the aspens change and the air gets cooler. 

The next weekend we enjoyed Conference weekend up at grandma's house as the usual tradition.  We brought our friends, Jennifer and Chris with us and it was a blast! We went on a beautiful mini hiked and did some slack lining in the woods, played horseshoes, and ate WAY too much food, especially Papa Murphy's cinnamon wheel. Great memories were made. Grandpa even took us for a ride in his red truck and let us drive his RC boat that he hand crafted himself.  Of course, Scott got the privilege of fishing it out when the battery died. 

This past weekend escaped to Las Vegas, NV for Fall Break.  We loved hanging out with Gran and exploring new places in Vegas.  We took our picture with a million dollars (sorry not seen below), saw the biggest golden nugget, saw the Hoover Dam, went to Shark's Reef, and ate WAY too much food. Our favorite was Shark's Reef with it's giant aquarium FILLED with the coolest fish out there. That in itself was well worth the trip.  Our last night we drove down the strip next to a Rolse Royce with newlyweds inside.  It was very cute and there was great people watching the whole weekend. Fun Fun.
