Cheerleading

Becca did a cheerleading clinic with the cheerleaders from East High in Salt Lake.  The clinic culminated in a halftime show at an East football game–Becca was pumped!  Caroline and Henry didn’t really handle the late night that well, but we made it through the halftime show and managed to get everyone back home with only a moderate amount of crying.

We made the most of the end of summer weather and took a trip up Farmington Canyon to have a picnic dinner.  Then went fishing down at Farmington Pond.

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch (just like we did in 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010).  We went to Pack’s Pumpkin Patch in Farmington again.  Hay maze, pumpkins, etc.

Henry wandered all over the fields looking for the perfect pumpkin, until he eventually picked one right by the entrance.  But he got exactly what he wanted.

Also it’s General Conference (worldwide semi-annual LDS church broadcast).  My mom made packets for the kids to do while watching it.  Caroline ate her marshmallows before she did much bingo playing.

Birthdays

We celebrated Henry’s and Caroline’s birthdays (they’re a day apart).  Hnery didn’t get to go out to eat, but he was mollified with ice cream and lots of toppings.

Henry picked out a rainbow cake because he’d decided that the rainbow design had the most frosting.  We vetoed that and got him a dinosaur.  Still met his requirements of “really big” and “tons of frosting”.

Henry digging for gold (it was a kit that he got as a gift with a big chunk of clay with fool’s gold in it).  He made a mess.

We gave Caroline options as to what she could do for her birthday and she chose the zoo.  First time ever that we’ve gone to the zoo on a Saturday afternoon (packed full of people).  Caroline was happy.

Went to the park across the street for cake and presents.

Fishing

We’ve been fishing a few times at local lakes since the kids like it (depending on the day) and it gets us out of the house.  Caroline is the most intense about it, yelling “I do it!” and refusing to let you touch her fishing pole.  When she gets it reeled in and I take it to cast it back out, she usually ends up on the ground screaming “no, no, no” (or something similar).  The first set of pictures are at Farmington Pond.

Becca and Henry probably would have been just as happy if I’d bought them each a tub of worms to play with.

We did manage to catch a few eatin-sized trout.  For Becca the picky eater, we told her it was “lake chicken”.  She’s starting to figure out the joke (she generally won’t eat fish, but has no problem if she thinks it’s chicken).

We also tried fishing at Kaysville Ponds.  Caroline was a little too grouchy (and still just as stubborn) so she and Jen went and watched movies in the car for a while.  All we caught was a few little sunfish,  but caching fish=success!
