October Happenings

My niece has been staying with us for 10 days while her parents are on a fun vacation. Since she has been with us I've tried to fill our calendar with lots of fun activities.

First up, we went to This is the Place Monument Park over UEA for their Halloween extravaganza. It was crowded but lots of fun with cute crafts, trick-or-treating, story time with a Witch, and more. The kids had a blast.


Second, we went up to Hill Aerospace Museum. This was VERY cool. I loved that it was free (yep, FREE!), and the girls just loved singing and skipping thru the place. Ryan's been suggesting this for a while and I've never been all that enthused, but I have to say, it was awesome and totally worth the trip.


After the museum we headed up to Brigham City to eat lunch at Maddox, our favorite place to eat in Utah. Then we hit a couple of the Fruit Stands, one of which had a free wagon ride thru their orchard, another had a free kids maze & slide. It was awesome and we were all worn out by the end of the day.


Another day, we hit the zoo.


And finally, we topped the week off at Cornbelly's.

You are the best aunt ever! I'm impressed with all of the fun stuff you crammed in. :) By the way, I've heard of Maddox but never been there. What do they serve there? Is it worth the drive?

Looks like SO much fun!! The girls have been dying for some cousin time so we made it down to Shauna's this week and they had a blast! Would have been great to get everyone together...*sigh*...maybe it will happen one of these days.

Love you guys!
