A great advantage of having Grandpa there is to carry Camryn in the backpack. He loved it because it was the one time she didn't cry because he was holding her. Such a sweet face.
Later that night we were able to meet up with a bunch of friends at Fidel's for some din din and catch up. Man I wish everyone lived closer! What a fun group.
On Saturday we headed to Julian with Mia and Nate. It is a cute little old mining town that is known for their apple pie. (And let me tell you they should be known for their pumpkin apple pie and apple cider! So good!) We heard it would be cold but figured it was only an hour and half from SD so how cold could it really be? 38 degrees cold! We were not prepared! Camryn ended up wearing Mia's extra pair of mittens on her feet! But aside from the cold we had a great time. And it was great to be able to see some snow and feel as though it is actually winter.
Getting warm in candy shop and enjoying Smarties. Luckily Brenda had gotten this coat just before otherwise we would have had nothing warm for her.
Showing that was actually snow! Can you see the mittens on her feet here?
Thanks Mia and Nate for showing us such a fun place to visit! Next time we will be more prepared. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are getting ready for Christmas in 3 weeks!

Ryan enjoying his Shave Ice! Well actually it wasn't that good.
Taking a break from snorkeling and playing in the sand.
Iao Needle-short little hike but really cool mountains. Probably a small scale version of what Machu Picchu would look like.
The Atherly's-such a amazing family. It was so fun getting to know Emma and Owen better. This was the first time Huncle Ryan (as Owen called him) got to meet Emma. She is such a sweet little girl but is always on the move-she will be walking in no time! And Owen is the cutest kid. So smart and loves his Monster trucks! Our favorite was the way he spoke! We still repeat the things he said. We cannot wait until they are in Southern CA next July!
Our little fam. What a fun and memorable trip! So fun that we got to spend time away and with family. My dad's plan is all the adults and no kids in a few years! Let's just say we can't wait for that!

We woke up Saturday morning with a fresh start and I made homemade chocolate chip pancakes dyed orange in all sorts of Halloween shapes! Let me tell you they were tasty! I hope to make this a Halloween tradition.
She got to have her first sucker! Now I know why all mothers give their kids them when they need to be good! She was in heaven! You could not pry that out of her grip if you tried. But at least she was willing to share.
She was such a fun cute little monkey. She had fun going door to door in our neighborhood and playing with Grandpa and Grandma Smart.
We finished the night off with a dance party before bed! She has increased her dance moves and I attribute it to her new little tutu! Who says you can't wear a tutu with your jamies? I can't wait until next year, each year will get more and more fun!

Here is how they all turned out! Ours is the one on the far right. I went for a happy version of a Jack O Lantern with Camryn teeth but I think it kinda looks like Mickey Mouse.
All the girls and kids with our pumpkins. The owl is awesome! And don't the kids look cute?! I love this holiday!
