Fall is here!

Kristy came for the weekend and we decided to do something fun so we drove south to Santaquin, Ut to the Big Red Barn at Southridge Farms. They have fun activities such as a hay ride up to their pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin and little activities (mainly for kids...) but we had fun!

They had a little maze made with crates. The rule was we couldn't look over the crates and cheat but you know Tanner, he's not very good at following the rules.

"Take me for a ride on a big green tractor"

Kristy: the horse whisperer

Look at all those pumpkins! So many to choose!

After much deliberation we all three finally found decent pumpkins to take home and carve.
I didn't get any pictures but after the hay ride and picking out pumpkins, the Big Red Barn was full of fun things! They make delicious homemade fudges, carmel apples, apple donuts, fresh-pressed apple juice, they have an apple tasting station so you can buy freshly picked apples and pears, lots of crafts and cheeses and all sorts of things! We definitely couldn't leave without some souvenirs... too bad our souvenirs were all edible. ;)
Later that night, Tanner & I went to our ward's annual Halloween costume party and chili cook-off. I entered in some chili found on pinterest... It didn't win anything but it was still good. I recommend it!

YeeHaw! :)
Gotta love FALL festivities! More pictures of our pumpkin's all carved to come!
