The Adventures We Have...

Why can't weekends last longer? Good news though - Tomorrow is Friday! This weekend will go by way too fast as Derek and I are taking a weekend getaway to visit the Power family. We are so excited. All of his family will be there for the first time in a little over a year. We can't wait. 

So this last weekend was fun. I had a chance to decorate our house. We don't have much room to decorate a lot but a few things go a long way in our lovely spider basement apartment. Good news is the spider only add to our decor...ha

Later Saturday afternoon our friends Jackie and Par stopped by with their cute little baby Henrik. It was fun to see them and to see how much Henrik has already grown in his first month of life. Such a cute family. Later we joined my parents and Nathan for a nice dinner. It was fun to get to spend a little bit of time with them in Provo. That night we enjoyed the Pumpkin Patch. It was such a cute place. We plan to go back to do they straw maze there. So many fun activities for free. We had a blast. If you are in Provo you should go check out the Provo Corn Maze and pumpkin patch. We loved it.

haha I love this picture

Love the lighting on this picture. Excited for the Straw Mze. 

Sunday we enjoyed a nice drive in the fall weather and came home and made some caramel apples. I think it's been a while since I have eaten a caramel apple because I forgot just how messy you can get..ha Good news...we didn't burn the caramel and had a really fun time making them together.

We felt that popsicle sticks just wouldn't cut it... 
He is the master coater of apples 

Honestly...they are so good. We currently have two left. Can't wait for dessert tonight. The one apple on the front of the tray that doesn't look as good was the only one I did. ha I just don't have the skill to gracefully and evenly coat the apple in caramel. Maybe next year. Derek called it our scary apple.

So happy it's fall and that we get to enjoy doing so many fun things. Can't wait for this weekend!
