Last weekend we went with Stephen's parents to Apple Hill up near Placerville. We loved it. We parked our car and rode the shuttle around to about 4 or 5 apple farms. We had a fun time trying the good apple juice, and all the baked goods. They have these good apple donuts there. My favorite though was the apple turnover. The leaves on the trees were just starting to change colors, so we got to see some pretty Fall.

At the end of August Stephen and I attended Stephen's 10 year high school reunion. Wow, how time flies when you're busy with school, a mission, school, getting married, and starting a real job.
For Labor Day weekend we took a trip to Yosemite National Park. What a beautiful place, I so want to move there. We got to stay there for 4 nights in Curry Village. We had fun riding our bikes, hiking, and taking an art class. One of the days we hiked up to Vernal Falls, and then Stephen went on to Half-Dome. I stayed on top of Vernal Falls for over an hour just enjoying the peace and beauty. Stephen took amazing pictures of the view from Half-Dome. His total hike time there and back was about 9 1/2 hours. He loved being on top. Stephen's parents came up for 2 days, and Ryan and Jessica came up for 1. We loved it there.
We celebrated Stephen's 28th Birthday on the 29th of September. That Sunday we had a nice family dinner down in Merced. On his birthday Stephen took the afternoon off of work and went golfing. That night we went out to eat at Sweetriver. Stephen enjoyed his birthday, and the great birthday gifts. I gave him Planet Earth and Blue Planet, and we have been enjoying watching episode at night. What a crazy cool set of movies.
Last week we went to see the Barenaked Ladies in concert at the Fresno Fair. They were fantastic. Really great performers. We had been a little worried about how the concert would be since one of the main singers, Steve, had left the band, but they sounded great.
