The Last October...

... at least in Utah, for a while.

Who knew that my kids would love to dress up with scary masks!?!
Halloween definitely arrived at our house!

After months of training on treadmills, and running with an awesome and patient friend, I FINALLY ran my planned 6K at Thanksgiving Point!! I loved it and can't wait to run another. Just imagine 1850 women of all ages and sizes running together. The energy and atmosphere was amazing. And I was so proud that I had made a goal, worked on it, and then achieved it!

For mine and Dan's combined 30th birthdays, (mine is still coming) we were so graciously taken to Las Vegas by Dan's mom and stepdad: Granny & Grampa Dan. We stayed in the Planet Hollywood Towers, just 1 year old, and it was an awesome room! Then we were even luckier to be able to see LOVE, by Circue du Soleil. Dan and I have been humming Beatles tunes ever since!

And then there was the pumpkin patch with Grampa Russ. 

Kid wheel-barrows were the best!

And it's a good thing we are moving to farm country, so Jack can get his fix of tractors and anything made my John Deere!! 
(what, did I just say moving...?)

Thanks Grampa Russ!! 
We will miss you, and everyone else we love so much here in Utah.

We will have lots more time to post when we get to La Crosse, Wisconsin... next month.

Looks like it's been a great fall season so far! And congrats on the move, although I'm a tiny bit bitter. :D Wisconsin is lucky.

Congrats on doing the 6k! Isn't it an awesome feeling? Also congrats on Dan's new job, but we are gonna miss you guys!

Sabrina said...

Wow, what a huge change for you guys. I wish you all the luck in the world. Maybe you already know, but Shannon just moved to Michigan, so you'll still be somewhat close (relatively). And, great job on the 6k. Aren't races so much fun?

Congrats on the 6K! That is an incredible accomplishment. I hate running, so to me that is an impossible feat.

And I'm bummed you're moving! I've been meaning to get together with you guys for a while and this is what I get for procrastinating. I hope you have a good move and that you love your new place!

Way to go on the race! Lots of exciting and cold adventures up ahead for you. I can not wait to hear all about them!

You're awesome. And you're moving!? So I won't get to see you or meet Layla before you leave? Good luck! I hope you have an awesome experience and that exciting things await your sweet family. Love you!
