We haven't had a chance to get up to the canyons much this year, so we went up Big Cottonwood to our normal casual spot at ledgemere. The kids like to play by the water and make smores. Nothing too crazy, but the kids enjoy it. The leaves are all changed and there is a chill in the air. I love fall but it's so short here. I'm dreading winter already....

We found this tarantula about 10 feet from our picnic table! My close-up pictures didn't turn out, but he is about 4 inches long. I've seen these guys down south, but boy were we surprised to see one up here in the mountains. The kids thought it was the coolest thing ever (from a safe distance).

Caitlin's first day


Cailtin's first day of Kindergarten was today! I can't believe that our 3rd is in school already. She was very excited and was not nervous at all. When we asked what her favorite thing was from her first day, she responded "the cupcake we got at the end". Hey, whatever works. Just hope she isn't planning on cupcakes everyday. Caitlin, we are so proud of you!
