Pie Making

And these are the pies we made from the blackberries!
Scott had a friend teach him how to make the crust.

It was delicious.

So this is actually a peach pie that I made from Costco peaches but I thought I'd include it anyway!

Labor Day Weekend

For Labor Day we went up to Santa Rosa to pick blackberries. It ended up being a fun and delicious weekend. 
Rush and Grandpa putting together a fan base. He is quite the helper.

Hailey looking for mischief.

Rush kept talking about building a fort so Scott helped in the morning. Building the fort created a huge mess but only provided about 30 seconds of entertainment once it was complete. Awesome!

Yes, we did pick blackberries on the side of the road.

I took pictures and Scott picked berries. We're such a team!

Again, Rushton being helpful.

OK, so it didn't last long.

After all the hard work we treated the kids to swimming

and playing games with the adults. (However, Rush got to decide the rules so we were never really sure about what was going one. Big surprise: he won!)

Hailey SO SO SO sad to see Grandma leave. That girl loves her Grandma!

Les Miserables

In August we went to Les Miserables with some friends and LOVED it. I may or may not have cried. Seriously, it's so emotional. Since then I've started to read the unabridged version and it's divine! I sort of feel like some parts can be counted as scripture study since there is such rich doctrine. If anyone is thinking about reading it I would highly recommend it. Even the abridged version is wonderful.
