We had such a fun Saturday. We went down to our friend Briste's parent's farm. Garret was excited all week to go on a hayride with Dave. he walked around saying "me. . .hayride. . Dave". So we went for a hayride, the guys shot guns, we ate good food, and we got to get away from the city for a little while.
I think this is the backyard we want someday!
Despite the great time we are having living in Buffalo I think deep down I am a country girl. I think the country is so beautiful and slow and peaceful. I like the idea of having a garden and working together, playing sports in the backyard, watching my kids build forts and go exploring. I have great memories of playing outside and I guess because of it the outdoors has become my place of solace. It was so wonderful to experience the beautiful New York countryside. The leaves were beautiful, bright oranges, yellows and red. Some of the views are like the pictures you see in books or on jigsaw puzzles- it's just gorgeous.
We had a great day with our friends. Then we got home and got the kids ready and headed off to the stake play (Joseph and the amazing technicolor dream coat). When you hear stake play you picture something fun but not really professional. I was so wrong- seriously this play was as good as the plays we saw at college. The performers did so well, the set was great, the music was great- plus it was fun because we knew people in it. It was nice being on a date with no kids plus it reminded me of when we were living in Rexburg we used to go to plays together all the time. I am a sucker for a good musical- they just kind of make me want to get up and start dancing around- they are just so fun. (Good job to all our Friends in the play!- it was awesome).
