It seems like this month has just flown by with school/work/events and we haven't had as much time to do all the Halloween things we would like to do, but here are some things we did get in this season.

On September 30th we decorated our house

We didn't put up all of our decorations this year, just most of them. ;) 

Since I'll in Charleston for choir tour on actual Halloween, I only had one weekend to get in some Halloween themed activities. My favorite, of course, Witches Night Out at Gardner Village! 

This year I took my sister in law Whitney! 

Witch sisters! 


We ate a yummy dinner at the "Naberhood Bakery" and enjoyed mingling and shopping with the hundreds of other witches. 

We're attractive. ;) 
 As the shops were closing up we hurried to buy some cotton candy! Because who doesn't love spun sugar??

Gardner village is all decorated for Halloween with a miriad of fun witch displays/props and paper mache witches. 


This "witch" was super weird and creepy and lumpy in all the wrong places...

Which witch is which? 
Witches night out is probably my favorite thing to do at Halloween and I loved sharing it with my sister Whitney!

"Have your cake and jump on it too!"~Steven's 25th Birthday

To celebrate Steven's quarter of a century age mark, we took a bunch of friends to "Jump on It".
Steven is in his element when he is jumping around, doing flips, being crazy...basically he's super athletic and energetic. Fortunately, so are his friends! With Eric, Austin, Breanna and Melissa and a couple of her friends in tow, we headed to Lindon and enjoyed an evening of jumping, swinging, climbing, bouncing, running and being crazy. Hooray for birthdays and being 25!!

Hooray I'm flying!

Now that's a flip!

Getting higher! 

Enjoying his party

Yay!! This picture accurately describes our whole relationship. ;) hahaha. JK! 



Flipping and flying!



Flying and flailing! 

Hair blowing in the breeze! 
Epic flip-roll!

"I have no idea what I'm doing! Yayyy!"
 This place was awesome! Not only is the whole floor and most of the walls covered in trampoines, but there are also balls and basketball hoops and things to jump over, to climb and to swing on! This huge rope swing was by far my favorite part!

 There was also this slippy slide thing with a bar at the top and you had to try and run up it really fast and grab the bar.

We also played dodgeball which I hadn't played since probably Jr. High! It was so much fun!!

 More turns on the rope swing...

Everyone had a great time and I think we would all HIGHLY recommend Jump on It! A great place for high-energy fun!

Happy Birthday Steven. LOL!
