Cabin in November

After the week of Halloween, my parents invited us to spend the weekend at the Cabin.  I needed a  break from school and I convinced Sam to come along despite having tests that Monday!

So we drove up Friday, spent Saturday there, and drove home Sunday.

Saturday, we:
Played on the swing (sadly it broke before we left)






 Played Baseball

 





Went into town and bought a motorbike on a whim (a hit with the kids and grownups)



Took candid shots:


 We also finished a puzzle, went to Pagosa Springs twice, and watched movies.  I didn't know you could fit in that much in a day!

Sunday we:
Went to the frozen pond to throw rocks


Got caught in a rope!


And my goodness were we blessed!  Despite doing minimal studying, we both got the highest test grades we ever received in our classes the following day!  See what a much needed vacation can do!

Halloween 2012

We are a bit late on the Halloween update, but this year, we decided to be pirates.  Arrr!

At the ward Halloween party:


 

 Can you guess what they are?  Not ghostbusters, but adventurers on Mt. Everest!

We had quite a few superheroes running around!

 Cute cute family with their cave baby. :)
Starting off the costume parade.

Except for the eyepatch, earing, and sword, it was completely from our closets.  It's fun to get creative.
