The Ranch

My sister Emily & my parents were in town a couple of weekends ago. We had a lot of fun, thanks again mom & Em for helping me find a dress, even if I found the right one after you guys left. These are the only pictures I took while they were here. We went to check out a ranch that was here in Vegas that my dad read about in the paper. I didn't really want to go but my dad says we never want to do what he does, so we went. I think when the day was over my dad was wishing we wouldn't have done what he wanted! It was a hot day, the petting zoo smelled so bad, & we watched a terrible show! I guess we had fun though since we were together & that's all that matters!
Papa & Carter.

Em being crazy. I think this would make a nice profile pic on Facebook!

I heart fall.

I absolutely love this time of year! I love the Halloween decorations, the cool weather, the pants, the scarves, the coats, the yummy candles, & the holidays! To kick off the fall season we went to the pumpkin patch the first weekend in October with my parents. We went a little too early, they didn't have some rides & games set up. We will be going again & hopefully we will get to go to the real pumpkin patch on a farm in St. George. So enjoy the pics.
I told him to smile & this is what he gave me.

I welcome you fall with open arms!


Step Right Up!

Since I've never been to a circus we thought it would be fun to take Carter to one. I don't think he enjoyed it as much as Dan & I. We had really good seats & got 2 tickets for the price of one! Carter was free since he sat on our lap. Last season on America's Got Talent there was an act called Quick Change, we thought they were really neat. Well they're act was in this circus so we thought that was cool because we saw them on t.v. We had a lot of fun & hope to maybe do it again next year!
