Mississippi & Zombies

I'd been thinking about going to Mississippi in October and decided to go down one weekend when Clark, Cal and Lee went to a Zomberee at Camp Shenandoah. The bonus was that school was out Friday so the rest of the kids only missed school on Monday. 

We headed out early Friday morning to Vicksburg around 5am.  Haley got a fun picture of the sunrise.

We arrived around 6:30, 7:00pm at their house.  Lena didn't know that we were coming and gave her a big surprise.  It was so fun!  The kids had fun with the cousins and did some night jumping on the trampoline.

It's always fun being with nieces and nephews!

Lillie warmed up to me and I LOVED it.

They have a steep hill behind their house and then across the street too.  But it's awesome for sleds!

Lena surprised me about bought a lot chicken and helped me can it!!!  Her bottled chicken is SO good.  I haven't canned anything since I was at home in high school.  We also were able to make a lot of chicken stock too.  It's been so yummy using the chicken and chicken stock at home! I am thinking about going to Vicksburg this coming summer and I want to bottle more chicken.

I saw this in the fridge and I thought it was hilarious!

Baby Steven is so cute and not so much a baby anymore!

We had a nice visit in Vicksburg and were home by the afternoon (well, before dinner).  Elden was so excited to see Cal.  It was super cute.

While we were away in Vicksburg playing with cousins, Lee and the boys enjoyed being at the Zombie Camporee.  Camp fires are always fun.

Lee and another dad from the ward were the leaders for the weekend campout.  They planned out some fun food, and the other dad made stew that evening.

There were a lot of activities that weekend, and team building activities.

Lee thought this was funny.

There were a ton of fun pictures, but I didn't post them all. Lee will have to jump on and post more if he wants.

I have been teaching the cooking merit badge to the scouts.  One night I planned a food relay race and the boys had to eat whatever was in the bag. It was kind of funny.

Haley had her friend Aleah over one afternoon.  It's funny how Aleah and Haley look more similar than Shanna and Haley.

We had a trip up to the temple and the kids

One fall afternoon we went to a park on a bike ride.  It was a lot of fun.  There is a fun BMX track there too.

Fall was so gorgeous here.  It was really warm in general and just soooo nice out!  I love the warmth.  I'm not looking forward to the winter settling in.
