Independence Day 2011
We baked apple pie.
We hung out with Brent & Carissa at the Ashworths', and the girls ran around in their tutu swimsuits.
Right after we found out I was pregnant, we flew down to Mexico City to visit Bud & Leslie while they were on their mission at the Mexico City Temple Visitor's Center.
They took us around to do some sightseeing. The Pyramid of the Sun was on Dan's must-see list.
We went to a pumpkin patch. In Los Angeles that means a parking lot temporarily filled with bales of hay and severely overpriced pumpkins, but we had a lot of fun (we bought our pumpkins from the grocery store, though - much cheaper!)
Juliet dressed up as a wonderfully chunky ballerina.
She went trick-or-treating with Eliza and Victoria.
Then somebody answered the door wearing a scary mask. She was terrified and insisted we carry her all night...it wasn't all bad :-)
Juliet's 2nd Birthday
For Juliet's birthday, we met up with Brent & Carissa at a play place. They had an entire room full of play kitchens, a ball pit, and slides!
We tried to take family Christmas pictures, but they mostly turned out like this...
There were a couple cuties...
but we gave up on the idea of sending out Christmas cards.
