It used to be that I didn't like fall...just because my yards seemed to get messy and leaves all over the place, but then I decided to think in a different way. I need to see the beauty of all seasons. Fall is when the wonderful Kochia weeds are 6 feet high, but they do get pretty when it freezes and they too change colors. Fall is when my flower beds are covered with all the leaves blown in from my trees, the neighbors trees and in Delta, the leaves could be from Milford too. hee hee.. Fall is when your mornings are chilly and the afternoons are unbelievably beautiful, then chilly evenings. Fall is when we try to get in all the last out door activities before the snow falls. Fall is the wonderful smells of Pinenuts roasting, dust from the corn fields being harvested, hot cider, and soups! Fall is 4 birthdays of the granddaughters. I have added lots of fall pictures from our family (of course mostly the little girls). I am loving FALL!!!

We spent Conference Weekend down south...The weather was unusually hot but after the change in temps this week, I am missing the warmth already. The St. George Marathon was October 1st, and Susan has been training hard to run it. It turned out that it landed right on Riley's birthday, but I don't think that Riley minded too much. That was the first marathon Mike and I have been to and it was really amazing. They capped the race off at 7400 runners and the city of St. George was packed with people. Susan did awesome, she came in at 5 hours and 9 minutes. Pretty neat when you think that last year at this time, she was bringing baby Riley into the world. She is not the only one with the love/hate of running, Deanna ran a half marathon in Cedar a couple of weeks ago and her baby was only 2-1/2 months old. I am so in awe of these girls and I want them to know how proud we are of them. The pictures are just a few of my favorite subjects, I can't get enough of the granddaughters!
