We all went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, and then Tory and I went home to pass out candy and for Tory to binge on candy. Jared took the boys around ward neighborhood where they amassed enough candy to keep us well stocked for the next millennium...or next week seeing how much candy they sneak every day. :) It was a fun Halloween.

It had been a while since we visited Neptune Park, so we packed up a picnic and headed over. It was SUPER hot and I was melting, but it did not stop the kids from having a blast! Chris and Ayden were having races up to the top of the pyramid, and exploring all of the other toys with some friends they made while we were there. Tory loved the swings and spent most of her time on them, but she also checked out the slides and other toys there.

The next morning, it was slightly overcast and we headed up to arches. When we entered the park, it started to drizzle, and by the time we made it to balanced rock it was pouring! We got out to see but the kids were a little underwhelmed and wet so we bundled into the car and headed for the North and South Windows and Double Arch. By the time we found a parking space, the rain miraculously cleared up and we were able to hike all over.
The kids had a grand time and kept doing crazy things and jumping all over the place. Tory discovered the sand and would cry anytime we took her away from digging in the sand to go see something else! We spent most of our day hiking around Double Arch, but we also hiked up to see Delicate Arch from the viewpoint as we did not think our children would be up for the actual hike to see it! The boys had brought their slingshots and had a grand time shooting rocks over the edges. We spent the rest of the afternoon in the car, only stopping to take pictures at some of the viewpoints, and then headed over to Goblin Valley!

One of the places we stopped at was at four corners. This is the only place in the United States where four states intersect at one point: Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado. It was pretty much in the middle of nowhere and it was kind of off the beaten path. It was super hot so we didn't spend more than an hour there...and there was a long line to take your picture at the actual four corners spot! Most of our time was spent shopping and seeing all of the beautiful jewelry and crafts on sale by Navajo artisans. I bought Tory a cute bracelet, and the boys chose slingshots shaped like a bison and a bear. They had a great time playing with them the rest of the trip.
