I made Cranberry Orange Scones on Friday morning, then we went mad shopping (my dad was at home in Vegas with a bag of frozen chicken fingers and no Wingers sauce!! He was all out! Can you imagine?? Don't worry- mom brought him home a suitcase full.) until Klayton got off of work at 3:30. All day Friday the weather would be sunny but cold then we'd come out of a store and it'd be raining cats and dogs then we'd come out of the mall to snow... Idaho was not showing off very well for my poor mom who kept repeating over and over "WHYYY do you live here!?!?!" I didn't have an answer for her on such a junky day, either. Anyway, Friday night we drove down to Lava Hot Springs just south of Pocatello for a little swimming/soaking. It was awesome! Avery got to swim and show off her mad skills to Grandma and we all had a great time. Afterward we found a cozy little diner way too late for dinner but we ate it anyway and it was perfect.
Saturday Klayton ditched work and we hit the Harvest Fest with Mandy and Troy and the kiddos! We were there for hours! It was so fun (sorry- no pics). Then after Avery's nap we drove around to a couple of pumpkin patch/barn/places in town and went crazy with Fall cuteness overload. Avery had a blast picking out pumpkins and running around with Rocky. We had dinner at the Snake Bite, one of my favorite local restaurants, and came home to watch some cheesy LDS movies (think CTR version of the pink Pride and Prejudice among others).
Sunday I taught the Gospel Doctrine lesson and we came home from church to an amazing flank steak (my mom is a super amazing cook) and some sweet squash for dinner (and some BBC Sense and Sensibility for entertainment) before we ran to the airport and said goodbye. I had the most amazing weekend with my mama (Avery balled when she left and has asked for Grandma just shy of a bazillion times since last night) and I love her so very much. Thanks for a great time, mom!!
