Friday night was Lexi's Fall Harvest Festival at her school. She had been asking when Friday was ALL WEEK LONG, lol. It was a fundraiser and you bought tickets and go around and use them at all the booths. The girls got cotton candy (it just HAD to be the first stop), popcorn, books, face painting (which they wanted on their hands and not their faces), and Lexi wanted to do the bean bag toss. It was really cute and the girls had a blast.

This morning I took the girls out to the apple orchard. Yes! There is an apple orchard in Vegas, it's a best kept secret here. It's clear out in North Vegas, so it was a drive for us, but it was worth it. You can just park along the road and walk down whichever aisles of trees you'd like and start picking. We only had to walk down not even 2 rows of trees and we filled 2 bags with beautiful green apples. They also sell apple cider, pears, and different kinds of melons that are grown there on the orchard. So we filled a bag with pears and I got their yummy canary melon and another canary/watermelon cross over (which the lady said was delicious, so I thought we'd give it a try... I LOVE melon!). There is also vegetable gardens there, but we didn't visit those this time. In October you can go and pick pumpkins too, so we may have to take a trip back there next month. But right now we'll be working on eating all these apples! I actually have some drying in my dehydrater now. If ya'll have any good recipes calling for apples, let me know!! :)

This weekend Benj's sister, Roselle and her family came for a fun visit. The kids always have a great time playing together, so they were excited to see each other. Saturday, after Roselle and I hit the scrapbook store, we all went down to the strip for some lunch and some fun. We took the kids to Rain Forest Cafe where they were quite entertained by our goofy waiter and of course the balloon animal guy. Then it was off to M&M World! Later that night, Benj and his brother-in-law Mike went to the UNLV/USU game. We are all USU alumni and were secretly hoping to see them win one. Needless to say, USU still doesn't have the greatest football team and they lost. But we had a great time this weekend! Thank you Harney family for coming to see us! And Lexi and Ava miss their cousins already!
