Pumpkin carving

For some reason, in our five years of marriage, and Trey's 3 years of life, this is the first time we have carved pumpkins for Halloween. We grew up doing it on our day off of school (Nevada Day) and were always fond of it, but have never made a point of doing it until now. Trey thought is was kind of gross, which it is, but he enjoyed it anyways. He really liked getting to help me trace and cut-out a face for his tiny little "Trey size" jack-o-lantern. Here's a few pictures of our first time, family pumpkin carving.

Road Show

Our stake put on road shows this year and our Pinnacle ward had an 80's themed skit about "fallen rock stars". Our y.w. and y.m. did really well and had a lot of fun performing too. However, one of the best parts of our road show was not the kids at all. It was the adults who made up "the band". Jordan participated and played the drums. He was so very excited to do so and was even more excited when he was able to dress the part of an 80's rocker. Here is Jordan and Brian (who played the bass guitar) in all their glory. (The funny thing is, after the youth seeing Jordan and Brian in their costumes and being very impressed, one girl asked me, "What, did Bro. Bunker find old stuff in his closet?" FYI: We are not THAT old, okay!!??)

Ragnar Las Vegas

This is the first Ragnar they have done in Las Vegas! It was so much fun and so nice and convenient to be able to cheer for Team Chasqui and be able to go home at night. We really enjoyed sleeping in our own beds and driving around a town we were already familiar with. Here's a few pictures to recap the race.

Jordan and only a few others got a special black medal that said "Saints and Sinners" because they raced the Ragnar Wasatch Back and the Ragnar Las Vegas.

Unfortunately, we can't mention this race without remembering a runner who passed away while participating. He was hit by a drunk driver in Henderson while providing water to a teammate. We are so sorry that something this terrible had to happen. We are very grateful to our Heavenly Father that our runners come home safely to us after each race.

Cali again

The first of October we went to California again. It was an awesome trip. First, our friends the Faucettes came and met us at the beach house. They recently moved from Las Vegas to California and we hadn't seen them in a long time. It was so much fun to hang out and visit. We took them to some of our favorite spots in SoCal and just had a great time enjoying each others company. (We miss you, Faucettes!)

Later in the week we went to Disneyland where we met up with some of my BYU-H friends from Oregon. It was so awesome to see Jason and Eryn and their three cute girls. It's been like 5-6 years (or maybe longer) since we've seen each other. We had a great time catching up.

Sky Fest

Mid September, we went up to Cedar City, Utah to go to Sky Fest. It's a festival where they inflate about 17-20 hot air balloons all at the same time. It was so cool! The kids really enjoyed it, and so did we. I don't think any of us had ever been that close to a hot air balloon before. It's amazing how big they really are and how they can float up into the air to quickly after being blown up. The only bad part of the day was having to get up REALLY early to be there... and they started much later than they said they were going to. But, I think we'll try and go again next year!
