A Fall Weekend With Family

BrockbankOctober5-927319 October 2014

Royal and I just got back from a last minute weekend with my family. I have been hearing so much about the beautiful fall foliage. Last week Gigi and Uncle Austin tried to convince me to drive up for a quick trip – but we are going for Halloween so I didn’t really consider it. But after another week the idea started to slowly grow of surprising my mom with a quick visit from just Royal and I. Well I made it happen.  I didn’t tell any of my family that I was coming and just showed up at the house.  We took a flight from LAX to Provo – I even ventured into long term parking so I could pull off this weekend. Finn and Jude  had their primary program today and Ryan was teaching a class so Ryan couldn’t give me a ride from the airport. So I drove up and we parked: Royal and I our bag, car seat, and stroller made it onto a shuttle and to the airport for our hour flight to Provo! It was such a fun surprise, what a happy memory this weekend was for me. Here are a few pictures from our hike in Aspen Grove. It was gorgeous. This weekend just happened to be UEA so Mason was out of school. Tanner was really busy studying for his Econ midterm next week, but Austin and I got to do some yoga together and catch up.
