Another Fall Visitor

My Mom came to visit!! We've had the best week...full of fun activities and good food! The weather was a bit unpredictable with lots of rain but then days of sun and 80 degree temperatures. We spent a lot of time enjoying the Fall leaves, soaking up the nice weather, and just enjoying having Grandma here! 

We kept busy going to Nauvoo, visiting a darling pumpkin patch in Donnellson, visiting the Mennonite town of Kalona, and attending two Mitt events (pictures coming soon). But we also enjoyed time at home, relaxing, baking bread, and playing with Kate outside. Thank you Mom for coming to visit! We miss you already!

Our neighbor has the most beautiful yellow tree...After seeing it last Fall I patiently waited for it to turned this week!

The beautiful Nauvoo Temple
Kathy's Pumpkin Patch- We've driven by so many times on our way to Nauvoo...we finally took the time to stop and boy are we glad we did. They had the craziest assortment of pumpkins and Kate loved their wagon. We will definitely be going next year!

Visiting the Cheese Factory in Kalona


  1. So fun! You guys are making me jealous for visitors! :) Wish we could come too. Maybe someday soon after we figure out where our lives are going. We miss you.

  2. So fun! I am glad you have had some visitors, and it looks like you are visiting some really cool places! I LOVE all the all color pictures. What a beautiful place!
