Cruz had to go to no mans land for a work thing. I came along for the ride, and once we finished up that adventure we decided since we were more than half way we would go to the Grand Canyon. This was the 2nd time we have been to the Grand Canyon since we have moved down here. :) On the way home we also drove through Zions. We really live in a stunning state. 
 This is at the animal place we had to go to for Cruz's work. They have tons of land all dedicated to taking care of animals. 

The sun, was just coming over this mountain.
Cruz was loving this stone... "WONDER STONE" in Kanab, they mine it there.
I had never heard of it, Cruz was surprised by that. ;)
After visiting the animal park, we went and had a super yummy hometown breakfast at this little cafe HOUSTON'S... it was delicious, and we were pretty much full for the day!

 Love the views of the Grand Canyon.

It was worth the drive, and we did some walking once we got there. Very pretty place, and got to see lots of deer along the way, and pretty fall trees. Everywhere we went Cruz was saying I have to take my parents here. Today 11.12 we will pick them up from the Vegas airport. It seems weird that the Vegas airport is closer than the SLC one. But we are both excited to have them come see us and the places we love to go... !
On the way back we drove through Zion's N.P. for fun. :)
Love this time of year!!

Thriller! Halloween 2012

The last few years we have had super festive halloween parties, either one we have hosted ourselves or attended. This year was much more simple, and yet still lots of fun.
 This year for halloween we decided to go to THRILLER at the Tuacahn Theater.
It didn't disappoint. We loved it. The dances were festive, creative, and entertaining. 
Our pictures from halloween are sort of pathetic. 
 They had fun halloween lights projecting onto the mountains. You can kind of see them behind out heads.
 The zombies were fantastic! They crawled around the audience during breaks and before/after the show. They would just come and hangout by you. Sometimes people wouldn't notice and then turn and look... and jump or scream. ha haha.
We didn't dress up, but there were lots of people who did. Next time I think I would like to dress up. 
My favorite costume was someone who dressed up as Effie from the hunger games. She looked amazing, and it was very fun. We were boring, and all we did is where shirts that had black, and orange. Ha haha.
