We took the kids to a fun family corn maze. We all did the maze and then when it was dark we were all supposed to do the Trail of Terror. Well Jason saw some of the guys getting ready for the haunted part and saw that some of them were dressed as clowns, and as everyone knows clowns are a deal breaker for Jason. So Jason and Haley decided that they were going to be more safe sitting in the car playing on their I-pods. I almost chickened out but decided that since Abigail was going to give it a try, then so would I. It was a little scary but with Adam next to me so that I could hold on tight and close my eyes when I needed to, I was just fine. I didn't see much but what I did see scared me just enough. When we got into the building with the clowns I just shut my eyes and Adam had to scream at me to keep moving. Thanks Adam, you saved me.

Check out this awesome pumpkin that a teacher brought into school this week. It was made by one of her "friends". Not a boyfriend, but a special friend all the same.
This is the school crest. I am just in awe by people that can create this kind of thing. He used a picture and cut just using sight. If I even want to do a smile I need to draw it on the pumpkin first.

Susan and I went to Vegas for a girls trip. We left on Friday and came home on Sunday. We were able to get lots of pool time a little bit of gambling (winning), shopping, eating, and some Adam Levine into our trip. We also had a free concert right outside our hotel window from One Republic. Not to mention we saw Joe here right before the big fight at the MGM.

In September we took the kids and went up into the woods for Labor Day weekend for a short camping trip. It was nice and warm during the day and it sprinkled at night but we had a great time. We bought a 22 right before we went so all of the kids got a chance to shoot. They all did really well. Adam is amazing. He can hit things that Lewis I can't even come close to hitting.

Lewis decided to take us on an adventure and hike the 'Y' in Provo. All I have to say is ouch. Haley and I were way behind, almost deciding to stop when she was viciously attacked by a hive of wasps. The literally swarmed her head so I grabbed her shirt and lifted it over her head to protect her. She only got 1 sting on her back. She was miserable and crying but I thought it would be best to keep moving up the mountain. We met the others as they were on their way down. We made it more then 3/4 up when we met them and decided to just head down. Haley was a mess and crying and in pain. Everyone else had already been to the top and I was trying not to barf.
So yes, in all it was a fun day. Oy vey.

On Sunday we invited the whole Sigman family over to our house for dinner. We had a great time visiting with everyone and got a bunch of pictures. Almost everyone made it but we were missing a few people, but as you can see even with a few people missing we still had quite a crew!

The day we came back from Park City we had family pictures done. It was fun and easy. Here is a little sneak peek. Actually this is my favorite one of the night. I had it blown up for the wall in the family room. After pictures it was pretty late so Heidi and Ryan took their kids back to Park City with Allison and Marty and Lewis and I took Katie and Nathan out to Wing Nuts for dinner. After dinner we played on the zip line. Well, I played on the zip line. Somehow the ladder crashed down on Nathan and cut up his leg and arm too, I think. So with that the day came to an end.

Did I mention that EVERYONE except for Allison and Marty stayed at our house? Plus their dogs? Yes, we had 6 adults, 7 kids, and 3 dogs, all in my house. Yikes!
We knew that we would need space so we headed up to Park City for a few days. We stayed at The Canyons resort. Lewis and I decided to get the Presidential Suite that came with 4 bedrooms, 3 living rooms and a dining room, 2 kitchenettes, a full kitchen, and 4 bathrooms. This way our family and Katie and Nathan would be able to spread out. Each of the kids got their own bed, in their own room with their own television. This way there was no fighting at all. It was heaven. Everyone else stayed in other rooms. The hotel was so overbooked that when Lewis and I got there an hour earlier than check in we were lucky because they were about to give our room away and move us into something else. No Way. I wanted that hot tub. We got settled in and went to dinner. After dinner everyone headed out to the indoor/outdoor pool area. It was rainy and cold but the hot tub was nice and warm and the kids had a great time. Adam even made Oreo milkshakes after the little ones went to bed.
