This was our 2nd annual apple picking extravaganza and our new favorite family tradition. We go to a farm in Mukwonago, WI called The Elegant Farmer. We went on a tractor-pulled hay ride, picked a peck of apples in the gorgeous orchard, rode the hay ride by the pumpkin patch, ate BBQ pulled pork sandwiches for lunch (yum!), and took home a delectable caramel apple pie baked in a paper bag.

A few nights ago, Ryan was getting Paige ready for bed while I was at a book club meeting. We always say a prayer with Paige before she goes to bed, and often she says it herself. Often she will list people she knows to pray for them. This particular night, she decided to add a few to the mix. Ryan had to try really hard not to laugh when Paige said, "bless Big Bird, and Ernie, and Bert, and Daddy and Mommy" with complete seriousness! Too funny!

As part of our Nauvoo trip, we visited Carthage Jail, the site where Joseph and Hyrum Smith were martyred. As you can see from the pictures, the bullet hole is still in the door to the room where the men were being kept. The window to the left of the bed is the one from which Joseph fell.
