Annual Ferg Halloween party

Mom and Dad had their annual Halloween dinner for us the other night. It was a lot of fun as usual. You have to choose from a menu of fifteen items and break them into three courses of five. Problem is you don't know what you're really getting so you often end up with dessert first or your main course with no utensils. Here's a few pictures from the night.
Eating the menu which consisted of "diaper dump", "slithering creatures", "bloody eyeball", "rotted compost", just to name a few.

Here's everybody in their costumes. Tristyn and Ty are on the far left. Ty is Spiderman and Tristyn is Frankensteins bride.

Tracey and I in our everyday costumes. Thanks Mom and Dad you go to a lot of work to make it fun for all of us.

Just shoes?

Recently Tristyn grew out of her old tap shoes so we had to go and buy some new ones. We decided to put her old ones up for sale. Seems like a simple thing, selling an old pair of shoes. I got to thinking what was really in those shoes. I saw in those shoes the hours upon hours of practice, the sweat and tears that those practices brought. I saw the dedication of her mother in taking her to all of those lessons and competitions. I saw the joy in accomplishing a goal, the dissapointment in falling a little short. I saw much more than just an old pair of shoes, I saw my little girl getting just a little bit older, a little bit further from being a little girl and a little closer to being a young woman. Maybe I'm in a sentimental mood, but I saw a lot more than just an old pair of shoes.

Corn maze

I was able to go with Ty on his pre-school fieldtrip over to the fish farm in North Ogden where they had a little corn maze for the kids to go through. After the maze (which was more like a trail through a cornfield than a maze) we were able to have a little picnic lunch. All in all it was a lot of fun to hang out. It's always fun to watch the kids interact with each other, lots of laughs.
Ty discovered some indian corn

A little bridge going over the fish pond.

It's always fun to get to spend a little time with the kids. I'm glad we got to hang out for the day.

Fall 4-wheelin'

Friday we got to do a little 4-wheelin' with Tracey's family. We went up near porcupine reservoir in cache valley. It was sure a fun ride with beautiful scenery with all the leaves changing.

This is overlooking the reservoir.

Stopping to have a little lunch.

We even ran into a little snow.
