Hallows Eve!

We have some catching up to do before I share a little of this..

Yesterday, we went to a pumpkin patch! This has been on my to-do list all month and I’m so glad we were able to find the time to go as a family! This was actually my first time to a pumpkin patch EVER!! My family always just picked up our pumpkins at the local grocery store in the past.. Let me just say, the pumpkin patch is SO much better!

They even have some of my favorite squashes available!

It was fun to see the HUGE pumpkins and crazy gourds and get lost in the corn maze!
The twinners loved it to!

After the pumpkin patch we went to the UTAH football game!

We weren’t able to get any lunch before luckily I had a protein shake and apple stashed in my purse and Brent picked up a chicken sandwich.
It was the black out game! Which means everyone in the stadium wears black, including the team!

It was a perfect fall day for football and a fun date for Brent and I. AND…..WE WON!
I had a late night with little T (I think his laterals/molars are erupting) So from 1:45-3 we hung out watching cartoons and stacking blocks. I don’t know where he gets the energy that late..err.. early in the morning? but I was pretty much laying on the floor and when I would close my eyes he would get reeeeeeally close and screech in my face.
how kind.
When I finally woke up… at 10 am. I whipped up some pumpkin protein pancakes.

Today has been quite the lazy Sunday which in the first time in MONTHS we haven’t had any commitments or had to go anywhere! So we enjoyed it by staying in our pajamas till uh… all day. We did venture out of the house for a fun little family walk/run up city creek canyon! (A first for me to!)
We hiked up the trail 1.2 miles and ran back down with the babes!

I was loving that trail! We enjoyed the fall leaves and couldn’t help but notice most of them have fallen which means.. snow soon…Sad smile
It was a good ending to a lazy Sunday! I’m so excited for Halloween tomorrow and take the babes trick or treating in their costumes!
Q. Where do you usually pick up your pumpkins?
Q. Favorite lazy day Sunday activity?
Mine is usually playing games inside but the weather was beautiful outside today and we have to take advantage of this Utah fall weather before the snow falls!

  1. The patch is soo much fun-wego every year. You got some awesome pictures. Penn state does white out days-like your black out days

  2. Sadly, I get my pumpkins at the grocery store. I've never been to a pumpkin patch. :( My favorite lazy Sunday activity is going for a run or bike ride, but a bike ride is now out of the question seeing that there is going to be snow. :( But, I do like to go for a ride in the car too.

  3. I picked up our pumpkins from a local grocer, it's just hubs and I, so I didn't know if he'd want to make a big day event of the pumpkin patch. I'm a big kid at heart, but he's a manly soldier. Haha :) I totally love your recipe for pumpkin protein pancakes. They're well-noted!
