Bath Tub Buddies: Arlie, Hunter, and MaKenzee

While we were home Arlie and I had the opportunity to see the Hartvigsen's! They are our good friends from Misawa, Japan. They are now stationed at Hill AFB so when we flew into SLC we stayed the night with them and then Melissa drove me home to IF and stayed the night with me at my parents house. It was so good to see her and her family. The kids have grown up so fast! I love their family and we miss them so much. Arlie had a great time playing with MaKenzee and Hunter. Thanks Melissa for all you did for us. We think about you guys often.

Apples and Pumpkins

Fall Harvest

This past saturday we went with our neighbors to a farm where you can pick your own fruits and vegitables. It was a lot of fun. The drive out there was maybe around 40 minutes and it was a beautiful drive. The fall colors are starting to show but I guess it is not as good this year as usual since we haven't gotten much rain. All the leaves are just dying. But it was so nice to see some countryside. There were lots of beautiful rolling hills and huge mansion houses. I would love to live somewhere like that. This farm has all different kinds of fruits and vegies that you can come and pick during the season of the type of fruit you want. We went to pick apples and pumpkins. It was a really fun experience. They have hay rides and fresh apple cider too. When we went to ring up our pumpkins, Josh about had a heart attack when they said $20.00 for two pumpkins. I guess we just payed for the experience. Arlie was not in the best of moods. She is teething pretty bad right now. So there was no way I was going to get her to smile for any picture.
The weather here has been crazy! Like high 80s to low 90s. I wonder when it is going to feel like fall? Oh well I won't complain. It feels pretty great. Hope you all are doing well. Love ya!

Spending Time at Grandma & Grandpa Yost's

We had a great time at grandma & grandpa Yosts house. Sorry Lori I didn't get a picture of you and Arlie this time. We will have to get some at Christmas.

Feeding ducks and playing around with Grandma & Grandpa Ford

We had a great time feeding the ducks with Grandma Ford. I think Arlie ate just about as much bread as the ducks did that day. She kept stuffing her mouth full. She had fun chasing them around. She made a couple of friends there that were feeding the ducks too. There was a mud puddle near by and both girls slipped and fell in the mud. Not together. It was pretty funny.

New Hair

So while I was home visiting family, I got a wild hair and decided to dye my hair dark. So far I really like it. It is a nice change. I will probably go back blonde eventually but for now it is fun to have something different. It turned out to be a little more red than I planned but that is ok. I like the color. Thanks Michelle for doing it for me! YOu did a great job. I would love to hear what everyone else thinks about it.

Having fun in Idaho

Here are just a few of the pictures I took of Arlie while we were home visiting family in Idaho. We had a good time seeing everyone that we got to see and spending time together. Thanks Dad and Lori for letting us stay at your place.
