Last Days of Summer

We have had an action packed few weeks with family reunions, house guests, and day trips. It is so wonderful to see everyone I love and makes me long for December when we will have time to see each other again. Now that the weather is cooler and the trees are starting to turn, I feel like I need to cram a few summer activities into our last warm days. Last night we had the most amazing storm. I LOVE YOU SEPTEMBER! I was so happy to see the sky clouding up. I don't know what it is, but I sure love the fall.

Two weeks ago we went to visit the Borcherts and we went to the American West Center that is just a few miles out of Logan. It was natural fibers week and we chose to go on the day that the pioneer ladies were spinning wool. I was expecting a bigger deal, but it was still very fun to watch them in their long dresses pumping away at the wheel. They were making beautiful yarn. I'd love to learn to spin, but I don't know what I'd do with the yarn since I'm not really a knitting prodigy.
Anyway, the boys had a great time running around and touching everything...including the animals in the petting zoo. *hello sanitizer - I'm such a freak about touching animals*

This little pioneer sweetie was our tour guide while we were at the Pioneer village. She was so excited to see little kids and followed the boys around everywhere.

I'll miss you summer, but I sure am glad that Fall is on its way. Yippee!

Okay, seriously. Cutest pictures of Cohen in the corn! And, extremely funny that you were in Bear Lake. Too bad we didn't run into each other!

So I was one of the spinners that week you were there at the American West Heritage Center. That little girl was a lot of fun to watch all week long!
