bike ride in the canyon

We have a trail by our house that goes all the way up the canyon. The fall leaves are amazing right now, so we decided to take a ride up the canyon and take it all in.

As a matter of fact, you can fit 4 bikes into a minivan. You just have to make sure the kids are buckled really well, and drive with all the doors open.

Why yes, that is a snowboard helmet she is wearing, she was WAY to embarrassed to wear her bike helmet because it has stars on it! There you go.

The Pumpkin Patch

My neighbor planned a trip to a local pumpkin patch and invited us along. It was such a fun night. We got to take a wagon ride out to the pumpkins, then grab some up and take the wagon back. It was a great time. We have the best neighbors ever. I love where I live so much.

Labyrinth with the Little Paynes

It is my favorite thing in the world to be on the river with all of my family. I think we've decided not to do any more multi-days without all the girls. It's just too perfect. We had intended to do the San Juan, but there wasn't enough water and as none of us had done Labyrinth Canyon on the Green River, we decided to do that. Fabulous choice! It is among the most beautiful places I have ever seen. "No Rapids" was a bit of an understatement, I think we may have been rowing upstream for all the current we had, but the scenery!!!!! Oh my, I can't wait to go back. The Paynes as always, were perfect company, can't wait until next year!
