Books, books, books

Check out my reading blog! It's starting out as a project for a class, but I have a feeling that I'll want to keep going with it . . . . enjoyabook.blogspot.com

Discovered in AF

Last Saturday Mom, Jen, & I were in American Fork- and found this sweet stop right off of Main Street! Flour Girls & Dough Boys Bakery. They have all sorts of yummy stuff!!

Absolutely darling! I loved the smell and feeling of the place.

Not to mention all of their yummy food . . . which includes all sorts of breads, sandwiches, soups, and pastries. I would recommend the raspberry bars and the shortbread cookies. So good!! You will absolutely fall in love with this place if you go there, as I did! It also has free wi-fi- pretty good for little ol' AF!

State Fair & the Knights

A few weeks ago Tom and I went to the state fair! It was lots of fun! We especially liked looking (and sometimes petting) all the animals. If you ever go to the state fair- see the worlds largest alligator. It costs a dollar, but it's so worth it! The thing looks like a dinosaur!! We also had fun eating fried food (hey, it's the fair) which doesn't really sit too well with me- at all. But the funnel cakes were a hit, as were the TIGERS!

Me petting a goose. I think he liked it.

So this is the largest steer I have ever seen. Just to give you an idea of how big it is- Tom is 6'5" and the steer was pretty much as tall as him. And weighed more too! about 2000 pounds if I remember correctly.

But he was gentle!!

Dad & Jen at Kelley's soccer game. Kelley's a junior at Lone Peak High School and has been having a great season despite getting bronchitis. Way to go Kell!!

The Knights after a hard won victory last Thursday. Kelley plays defense- she's number 4. It's kinda funny because every time she gets the ball and kicks it we shout out "FOUR!" like you would in golf. Just to let Kell know that we love her and support her. Go Knights!!

Finally . . . FALL!!

I can't even describe how excited I am that fall is here! Honestly, it's one of my favorite seasons! Better than summer, when you sweat all day and get sunburns, that's for sure! I'm ready for the change of weather- bring it on! Of course this change of weather means all sorts of wonderful things happen- such as going back to school (I'm not being sarcastic-I'm really enjoying it!). Tom is doing well in school right now also. Way to go on all those biology quizzes babe- 100%- woohoo! I'm especially loving my Literature for Adolescents class- where we are required to read 30 young adult novels- finally, an excuse for being a book worm! Love it! I discovered a sweet new site that helps me keep track of everything I've read, and also allows me to share books and book reviews with people- amazing! Check it out at goodreads.com

Fall also means bike rides and changing scenery- what a beautiful place we live in!!

. . . and also Swiss Days- with yummy scones bigger than your face!

. . . and our late summer favorite- peaches. Yum! Thank's to Tom's mom for giving us some! They're delicious! I think I just might make a peach cobbler tonight . . . :)
