This weekend my friend Anne was in town from Arizona. It was her birthday and she wanted to experience fall and mountains instead of being in the desert for her birthday so we headed up the canyon. Everyone else hiked Grandeur Peak, but that was not happening for me, so we met them after for a lovely cookout.

Emmy loved "camping". (That's what we told her we were doing when she asked where we were going.) Here she is helping Caron and Anne make some dutch oven peach cobbler.

She had a ball looking at the waterfall and finding orange leaves.

And "hiking" with her daddy.

This is when she found the camera and wanted me to take a picture of her. What a silly!

She wasn't a fan of the tinfoil dinners but she loved the chips and cake and smores. :) It was really nice to go up to the mountains and hang out with our friends.

A couple of weeks ago, we picked the last watermelon from our garden. It weighed 20 lbs! I told Matt he should carry it around like this for sympathy.

He lasted about 3 minutes before we cut it up and ate it. It was delicious!

The other day when I went in to get Emmy from her nap, she had all her stuffed animals lined up like this and told me they all needed their bums changed! Ha!

She has been doing funny things lately like singing the monkeys on the bed song in the car or wanting to sleep in her princess tent and asking to go to a birthday party so she could have some ice cream. I sure do love that little girl.

Hello Friend :) So I'm wanting to host a murder mystery for the young women in my ward up here in Wenatchee. Ben says that you are the expert in hosting such parties. I'm not sure where to start ... and some of the ones i found online are.... not young women appropriate. I know it's possible... I did one in young womens.. Anyways. Do you have any tips on how to approach this? There will be 5 to 6 girls.
Thanks muchly :)
