Good vs. Evil

Rachel took her friend Kyle to the Sadie Hawkins dance last night. The theme was "good vs. evil". Rachel decided to go as Cruella DeVille and Kyle, a dalmatian. (We couldn't get him to wear the face make-up or the ears) They still look great...don't ya think??!

Earlier that day, Mark took Ray and Kyle up to Mantua to go 4 wheelin. Kyle had never been before. Ray got a bit cocky and took a jump and got "bucked off" the wheeler. She's okay, just scraped her back side and bruised up a bit. Other than that little mishap, they had a great time!

Blacksmith Fork Canyon, UTAH

Mark took Friday off work so we could go bustin' on the 4s. I haven't had a chance to go this year and I really wanted to go. Macee went over and played with her cousins in Nibley so we could ride. I thought the first few miles my fingers would fall off! They were numb with cold! Then we got out of the trees and into the sun and warmed up a bit. We road about 40 miles total. It was a fun ride but we did hit some pretty rocky areas so I'm bruised up a bit and sore muscles. A few weeks before it might have been prettier with the leaves but there were a few trees still with leaves on them. It was still really beautiful and peaceful up there.

Canyon Hike

Mark and I went on a "date" yesterday evening and went for a hike. There are trail after trail in the hills above Layton/South Weber area. We found a good one that crossed a river well more like a stream, and we took a few pics. The autumn colors aren't very bright this year...there is mostly scrub oak anyway. It was still beautiful...
