Happy Halloween!

We went on a beautiful walk around Utah Lake on Sunday afternoon.

Fall was in full bloom around the lake


The following pictures were taken with self timers on the Provo trail.

Look at the beautiful yellow color in this one!
Here's the Provo River where we took our Halloween cruise. So pretty!

Pumpkin carving! Here's Ben with our beautiful pumpkin

We used a design we found online- something I've never done before. I traced it on the pumpkin, but it was Ben's steady hand who cut it out. I'd never have enough patience for that!

The finished product. It's the grim reaper, complete with a scented candle. It may be scary but it smells good!

Mom Dilsaver sent us this really cute package for Halloween. Thanks Mom!
Have a happy Halloween!

Happy Birthday Ben!





The old man turned 27 if you were wondering. They don't sell packs of candles that big.

Outback Steakhouse. It's what I get for marrying a dairy farm boy. And he says the prime rib steak still wasn't as good as his mom's.


We went on a date with my cousin Kristen and her husband Kevin. It was a Halloween cruise on the Provo river.

Thanks for inviting us Kristen and Kevin!


The guide recited Sam McGee. It brought back scary memories from my childhood.

For your viewing pleasure.
Video #1: Ben recently bought a heavy duty tripod for work. He tested it out in our apartment.
