All the trees are going to look dead soon, so we're living up the fall weather while we can. This is Barbara's favorite time in Rexburg, so we decided to take some pictures.

I looked in a journal from last year and saw that it was one year ago today that we got engaged. We went to Smith Park and took pictures under the tree where I proposed. 
Apparently I had a bug on my face right before the self timer went off, so that second picture was right after Barbara smacked me in the jaw.


San Diego & Natural Disaster Party

Barbara had two weeks off teaching school for spud harvest, so she got to go home to San Diego. (I don't think elementary school kids really need two weeks off for that, but she'll take the time off anyways, thank you very much.) 

The idea for a natural disaster party has been in the works for quite a while. It sprung up when our friend Kiri made lava cake a few months ago, then it developed from there--things like eating blizzards, making "funnel cloud cake" (I always thought that one was a bit of a stretch), playing Twister, making a volcano, and (my favorite) playing "Pin the Hurricane on Texas."
