Funtober Fest

This month has been crazy and fun!! Jer and I just got back from mid-semester tour with the ballroom team in Northern CA. It was 10 days long which meant missing 6 days of school. :o/ not so good. BUT! We did get to do a lot of fun things while there and met some amazing people.
 We visited the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield.
 About to take the tour.
 Jer and a group tasting the Booger flavored Jelly Belly. I opted out of that one.

That same day we were able to visit the Oakland temple and even spend some time inside. :o)
 We got to go to a cool Nasa visitor's center and learned a lot about our planets and solar system.
 At Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
We could watch these guys for hours.
Bread bowls with chowder and fish and chips!
Sourdough bakery. Making animal-shaped loaves. Also visited but not pictured- Ghirardelli Chocolate factory. Mmmmmm.
Our show site in Fresno.
When we got home, the Halloween festivities were already starting! We had an awesome FHE with this cutie and her parents, and the Mantells.
How cute is she? Yes she is my niece and she is to die for. She is a Bee if you can't tell. Love the antennas the best.
For our FHE we went to the pumpkin patch, picked our pumpkins, had delicious pumpkin soup and paninis made by Alison, watched Hocus Pocus and carved pumpkins. Is that not perfect or what?!
Here's Jer's awesome finished pumpkin.

 Court and Harps
 My cat pumpkin. Yes, I made up the pattern. Haha
 Pickin our pumpkins!
 Preparing to carve.
 Delicious cupcakes made by Alison. The inside had candy corn colored frosting. Al, you really outdid yourself this time! You're too crafty!
Cute Jer with his pumpkin!

I think I almost like Halloween as much as I did when I was a little girl! We're having lots of fun this fall!
