I always take a billion pictures, but don't worry, I won't share them all...Only 16 with some commentary added...hahahaha!
I'm not gonna lie, it made me nervous setting Lila off in the swing, but she adored every second of it!
And it was the boys' favorite part of our visit...
Last year we had a family picture in this same spot so we took one again to see how everyone had changed. Lila of course changed the most since last year she was only 10 weeks old when we went.
On the way home we spotted Mater off the side of the road and we couldn't pass up the chance letting the boys meet him in person.
We also stopped for a small excursion to explore the mountains a little. Luke and Lila had fallen asleep so Grandma stayed in the car with them while me, Mark and Andy had a walk around.
I loved the red color of the mountains and the Fall colors were so beautiful on all the surrounding trees.
My sweet Andy always has the BEST smile!
And after all of that, I realized I didn't even get any pictures of the boys with the pumpkins! Hahaha! Oh well! Going down to Central Utah is always so bittersweet for me. We miss living down there. We miss the smell of the fresh air. We miss the canyon breezes that blow in every night. We miss how much more clear the sky and stars are every night. I miss taking long walks to the Manti Temple with the kids. We miss all the sweet people down there and the friends we made. We miss the feeling of small country town living. We still have this longing in our hearts wishing we were able to make it our permanent home. Maybe some day...
