Apples and Pumpkins Galore!

We drove to Willcox this weekend to go apple picking and to a pumpkin patch. There turned out to be even more to do and we had a blast! My aunt Laurie, cousin's Amy and Tatum, and my mom came with us. Besides the heat, it was a very fun Fall thing to do and hopefully, we will do it again next year.

Picking peppers. We actually picked tomatos, jalepenos, all colors of peppers and chilis.

Girl's Weekend

My Mom joined us on Sunday to continue our girl's weekend. We drove to Palm Springs to go to the great outlet malls and shopped til' we dropped! The next day, we had a relaxing morning in the great California weather and then headed back to Disneyland (I know, I may be slightly obsessed!). It was my mom's birthday, so she got in free! It was an awesome weekend with my 2 moms!

Shopping, shopping, and more shopping!

It's Halloween Time at Disneyland and all the decorations are super cute!

My mom's favorite ride since she was a little girl.

Another Fun Fall Day at Disneyland

Brandon and my brother went on a backpacking trip this past weekend, so I headed out to California for a girls weekend with my mother-in-law. On Saturday, we spent the morning getting pedicures and then then we headed to Disneyland, where we met up with my brother-in-law, Brian and his girlfriend, Sheila. They took us to a great restaurant in California Adventure called Ariel's Grotto. Let me just say that if you are ever at Disneyland with a little girl, this is the place to go! All of the princesses wander around to all of the tables to talk to you and take pictures, and the food was really good! I can now mark that restaurant off my list of places that I haven't been in Disneyland yet (and let me say that with annual passes for 2 years, that list is getting very short)!

With Belle (my personal favorite)!

We even got Brian to do the princess hands!
