Cai in front of the largest pumpkin I've ever seen.  Our neighbor
grew it, just right around the corner up from our place.  1723 pounds.

Fall "Spooky" hike up McHugh Creek Trail to the tops of the rocks for lunch.  We kept hearing noises in the brush, like breaking branches and what not...saw a lot of moose droppings, but didn't run into any.

Pumpkin on a diet.  He lost a lot of his stuffing at our ward's Fall Carnival that the YW and YM put on for the Primary children.  Cai and I made up his costume, it was a lot of fun, but at the last minute, he wanted to be a dinosaur.  Once we had him all dressed up, and brought him into the activity, he totally forgot about everything else.  He loved the jumping castle, eating the donut off the stick, pinning the nose on the jack-o-lantern, coloring, duck hunting and fishing for candy.  The best part was the "Haunted Maze" in the Primary room.  Cai kept sneaking to the front of the line as soon as he came out to just go back in again, adults weren't aloud in b/c the kids had to crawl through the maze.  Jarad finally caught him by his foot, after about his eighth time sneaking to the front of the line.  He's fast!

Unidentifiable squash...the green thing...a zuchinni??

Welcome Fall

Hatcher's Pass family camp out, September 2011

Woke up with frost everywhere and happy as can be!

The Fireweed has turned brilliant red.

Harvest moon, it was as bright as bright could be in the middle of the night.

Off to hike up to Reed's Lakes, early in the morning


Starting the climb up the boulders

Cai crossing the river by jumping over the rocks

Gathered and ate lots of blueberries.

Cai and I lasted only six miles.  He hiked four of them by himself.

We didn't make it all the way up to Reed's Lakes, but had a beautiful time trying.
