Bridal Vail Falls

Last weekend, Brian's brother and sister, Jeff and Emily, came and visited us.  Had a lot of fun!  I am afraid they got to see the worst of me during a BYU football game held last Saturday.  The game was amazing though as the lovely Riley Nelson helped our team win!  Ha, After the football game, we went up the canyon to Bridal Vail falls.  It was beautiful!  The trees were changing and Jeff and Brian loved running up the falls too. 

I love how great of friends they are  :)

This picture is really nice.  You can kinda see how far up we are.

 This was a rather enjoyable hike, not too hard!
 Aww, I love Brian. 
His family is great to visit us and I love them, too!

Thanks for coming guys!

Bountiful Baskets

Brian and I have been purchasing half of a bountiful basket with Trever and Mandy for the past 3 weeks.  It is so fun to have all the produce we have been getting! Things we usually wouldn't buy, like pears, avocados,  plums, broccoli, cauliflower, etc, etc, etc!  I swear it is genius.  The only issue I have found is the fact that we have to go and get the produce at 7:15 on a Saturday.  It is worth it though because Trever and Mandy get it every other week.  HA.  So this week was our week to go get the basket.  We got there at 715 and went in with our basket.  As soon as we got in line, a guy yelled at all of us in line for not volunteering and that we should volunteer every third time we get produce.  I wanted to say to him, HEY DUDE, ITS OUR FIRST TIME TO ACTUALLY COME GET PRODUCE! haha, even with the guy yelling at all of us, the produce is still cheap and delish!  Here is a picture of the full basket.  We keep half and Trever and Mandy get the other half.  Thanks guys for splitting with us!
 Last, but not least, I have been practicing my favorite meal a lot.  Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, homemade gravy and corn on the cob!  It definitely has been a feat trying to get the gravy to turn out right, but you know what?  I think I actually got it to not be clumpy for once!  I had to get the camera and take a picture.  Oh, the apron is one that I made this summer with my sister in law, Carin.  She helped me get it looking so cute!  Thanks Carin!!
One day, I will have this meal totally mastered.  :)  For now, Brian is just going to have to keep getting experimented on.
