UEA and time to play

Today, as I write this post, leaves are flying by outside my window.

Fall, glorious fall.  Each morning I look out and find another tree has turned to autumn color.

The crisp, fall air draws one outside to savor each October day.  It was a long weekend off for students as it was UEA, time for the children to play while their teachers go to seminars and conferences.  The grandpa and father had to work, so that left grandma and mother to play along.

They came for a grandma visit and then we were off for pizza in the park.  I like this picture because Ray is used to leading playground games, but the boy in red would have nothing of that for he was the Ninja Master.

Ray tried, but this time someone else took charge.

There may have been a cleft in the rock but cautious Opal refused to be coaxed through it.

Kiwanis Park and the mountain . . .

with the "Y" also in view.  It was BYU Homecoming last week, so the "Y" was lit up nightly.

They also had Monday off, so we ventured out to a charming pumpkin patch just north of 12600 South on 9th East in Draper.

Sometimes when trying to get a great picture . . .

one just needs to keep snapping away.

There was a right colored pumpkin for everyone.

The boys stayed with the traditional.

Opal really liked pulling straw from the bales the best.

Henry and pumpkins are pretty magical.

Finally, everyone had the one they wanted.

I found these Cinderella pumpkins to be charming.

Next stop, Gardner Village and the old mill.

Gardner Village decorates big for every season.

Witches were everywhere.

I love this little family.

They really watch out for each other.  I was glad we had time to play.
