yes, i know i am a little late on posting about halloween weekend but better late than never right? this weekend was particularly special because the entire duty side of the family was together for the last time before my brother in law leaves for an lds mission to moscow, russia. curtis' older brother josh flew in from texas and his younger brother, his wife and daughter came up from cedar city. so the whole fam bam was together and it was awesome let me tell you. i seriously love curtis' side of the family and it was so much fun to have everyone together.

so thursday night we headed over to the in laws house and went trick or treating in their neighborhood. brooklynn seriously had the time of her life, it was hilarious. brooklynn was so particular about what candy she got. most children just accept whatever candy is given to them but not brooklynn. she would examine each candy as it was given to her and if she didn't like that candy she would ask for a different one. and then before she put it in her bucket she would make sure to show all of us what she got. it was awesome to see her have so much fun! brooklynn went as doc mcstuffins and quinn went as lamby.

on friday we went up american fork canyon to roast hot dogs and enjoy the beautiful mountains we have here in utah. as we were looking for the perfect spot curtis' dad lead us on a little off roaring adventure which didn't really work out for our prius and we had to turn around and find somewhere a little lower in the canyon. we settled in a great little spot and had a blast. we really do live in a beautiful state.. (still miss my california though ;) )

that night we went to hee haw farm. since it was the day AFTER halloween it was pretty much empty which kind of made it seem a little bit gross.. but it was still fun. there was a huge slide. and train ride, pony ride, hay ride, animals and much more. i saw a huge pig trample a tiny newborn pig and i about lost it because it was the saddest thing i've ever seen. boo! but other than that little incident it was way fun
