We spent the first weekend of October in Utah, staying with Ryan's older brother Derek and his cute little family. We love them. We spent crisp mornings in their hot tub, went for a gorgeous autumn hike and chair lift ride in the Utah mountains, and watched our church's biannual General Conference broadcast together. General Conference is always such an uplifting weekend anyway because of the outstanding sermons given, and it's even better when you can watch it with family!

A few weeks later, we went on a getaway to Boise with our kiddos and had so much fun playing in the beautiful leaves, shopping at the Farmers' Market, going to the aquarium, going out to breakfast to get our favorite pancakes, and of course, hitting the mall so we could do some decent shopping. (Twin Falls doesn't have much in our tiny mall.)

I have two New Year's Resolutions: 1. Buy a mini van! 2. Slim down my backside! (Though I guess if we are getting a mini van, I'm off the hook on that one...bring on the fried chicken!)
