My cute little black Cocker Spaniel, Jake(aka Jacob when he is in trouble,) is so cute. But he's a stinker. He loves to come into my room while I'm gone and unmake my bed and curl up with all of my pillows and blankets. The other day I came home and he had pulled all the blankets back and cuddled up with my "blanket" under his chin. It was so cute, but after I took the picture I took the "blanket" back and the look on his face was so heartbroken. It was pretty funny.

We wanted to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and take some family photos this year. The day we had planned to go, got started off a little dramatic. Nobody was ready in time, so by the time we got up the canyon there wasn't much light left. So we only got a few good pictures before we ran out of light and Hailey lost all interest in posing for any more pictures but this one of the whole family was especially great I think. Everyone looks pretty good, except Aiden is looking at Hailey, but you still get the idea that he is cute and everyone else looks decent. It was tricky because we didn't have anyone taking the picture, just a tripod with a monkey hanging off of it (that was so Hailey would look at the camera, which worked some of the time!)
The last few weeks have really been quite gorgeous here. It's been mostly in the mountains surrounding the area, but still enjoyable. It's nice to be able to drive a few minutes and be out in the middle of nature. It's one of the things that I love about Utah. We went up both Alpine loop through the Provo and American Fork Canyons and then a week later we went up through the Nebo loop through Payson Canyon. That was my favorite because there weren't as many people and the time of day when we went made for incredible lighting! I hope you don't mind me posting a few pictures that I took. I love fall and am a little sad that it's fading so quickly here. Fall never lasts very long and I feel like I didn't get enough. It's supposed to snow in the valley this weekend. Winter is already starting and I'm not ready yet! Oh well, what can I do. Nothing.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Last week some friends and I went bowling. I haven't been bowling in a few years, and even then, I was never any good. But last week when we went bowling, I didn't do too badly! My high score was 119, which might not be that good to other people, but for me it was FANTASTIC! I was so proud of myself!
