Soccer League...

Layton played in the local soccer league this fall. He had such a fun time doing it! His coaches were Lisa and Eric Reid, and they did a really great job, Thanks Lisa and Eric!

Layton was such a hard worker, we are so proud of him!

Hot Air Balloon...

At Apple Fest this year they had a hot air balloon that we could buy tickets to ride. The boys were really excited about the ride, it was actually pretty high and a little bit scary but the boys really liked it .

Lance rode with Parker...

and I rode with Layton.

Camping at Copleys...

 In September we went on a little overnight camping trip up the canyon by our house. We are so lucky to have the beautiful mountains and Copley's campground that is only about 5 miles from home for us.

When we got there the very first thing the boys needed to do was go fishing. Layton found this fish and game book in the tackle box and was obsessed with it for the rest of the trip. Asking what each fish was, and where it lived, what it eats, etc :)

Parker was content to watch the worms :)

Within the first few minutes they both caught one!

 Even though the fish were small they boys really wanted to eat them. So we did :)

And while dinner was cooking, we played games.

After dinner we went on a little hike around the campground to this waterfall.

Then roasted marshmallows for smores.

and into the trailer for baths and bedtime

In the morning we went on another hike, the boys had their binoculars out to watch for animals :)

Looking at some bugs ... (notice the fish book in Layton's back pocket :)

I love these moments with my little family where we can get away and just be together, life gets so crazy and we need to do this more often!
