It's Autumn Time!

It's autumn time, it's autumn time.
The leaves are falling down.
It's autumn time, it's autumn time.
It's all around the town.
It's autumn time, it's autumn time.
There's yellow red and brown.
It's autumn time, it's autumn time.
Bright colors can be found.

Autumn is my favorite season! I just wish it would last much longer.
Some of my favorite things about Autumn are:
* the colors on the trees
* you can were a sweatshirt and flip-flops at the same time
* carmel apples
* pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
* chocolate chocolate chip zucchini bread
* raking the leaves and then playing in the leave pile
* the cooler temperatures
* collage football
* Halloween
* a pumpkin patch
* fresh corn out of the garden
* corn mazes
* and fresh baked pies
Jared took us on a fun little outing last weekend. He packed a classic European picnic with yummy cheeses, grapes, sparkling juice, very fancy ham, and a baguette. Then we drove through Provo canyon which is breathtaking this time of year, and we picnicked at Bridal Veil Falls. We had such a fun afternoon eating, and strolling through the park. I am not sure who had the most fun, Maggie who could not slow down to catch her breath, Brandon who liked kicking his feet in the water, (for a short time) or me, who loved being out in the fall air with my family. It was a great get away!

I thought I would share with you my one of my favorite fall recipes.

Mix: 1 C. sugar, 1C. brown sugar, 1C. vegetable oil, and 3 beaten eggs

Add: 2C. grated zucchini, and 1T vanilla

Blend: 3C. flour, 1/4 C. coco, 1tsp. salt, 1tsp. baking soda, 1T. cinnamon, 3/4 baking powder, and 1C. chocolate chips

Then add to first mixture. Bake in well greased and floured loaf pans for 1 hour at 350*

Then try to share, I know it is hard, but try.

Beautiful pictures!!! Hey, I really have no idea how to use Facebook, so if it said I'm coming to conference it's a mistake. Sadly there is no way we can make that drive again anytime soon! Two boys in the car is too hard! Are you coming up here ever at all?
