Pumpkin Patch 2014

Going to the pumpkin patch is fun but pretty short. Once you look at all the pumpkins the activity is over. But Gracie had been wanting to go so badly because Luke had a field trip to a pumpkin patch with his kindergarten class. So we went and ended up looking for Spookley the Square Pumpkin (movie from the Disney channel). Plus they liked looking at all the huge pumpkins. 

I love these kids. They make me happy (and crazy).

Johnny Gets Married!

My littlest brother, Jonathan, got married in August and somehow we scrounged up enough money for the whole family to go! I was so excited. It had been a long time since we had all gone somewhere like that as a family. I was so glad to have Drew with me on the plane with all the littles. It was a quick trip but we had lots of fun & I'm glad I was there for my baby brother's sealing. 

***WARNING: Lots of photos!!***

Let's go to Utah!!

Cousins! Jacob, Gracie, Luke, Oliver, Ethan, & Charlotte

One thing my dad does best...falling asleep randomly...

Showing Luke the Cougareat. Go Cougs!

BYU campus!

Jacob & Grandpa
My crazy aunt

Natalie & Berlynn. Gorgeousness.

The best part of this trip was seeing so much of my family.

We went bowling as a family the day before the wedding

Now I know where I get it from...

I love my lil man!

See any resemblance?

Family dinner the night before: CAFE RIO!!
Johnny's "bachelor party"

The day of the wedding:

And after the wedding, we were hungry so we stopped & had a little...

And then the reception...

Can't go to Utah without seeing a Thorpe!

And then the rest of the trip...

Trip to Temple Square
We drove down to Vegas for a night to see Grandma Olson. She got to meet Jacob.
Saying good-bye is the worst.
The day we left (my birthday!) we met up with one of my favorite people, Kellee. We had breakfast at Kneader's (YUMMO!)
Back to the east coast we go!

Thanks Johnny for getting married so I could see everybody! We were missing Mamie, Jamin, Chelsea, & Bryton but maybe for the next wedding everyone will be able to be there. Welcome to the family, Eleanor!
