it's beginning to look a lot like...FALL!

We started Fall off with the most fall-y thing there is to do: the Straw Maze, of course!

Why, look who wanted to do some mazing...little baby wallaby! 

and sleigh riding...

and hay jumping...

then it was time to decorate

Idaho State Fair!!

Before we get to the fair, check out this little friend that Tyler found in our backyard...
How amazing is this picture! Tyler is so talented! I'm sending it in to National Geographic, for sure

This picture was specifically taken for Keith Redd.  TRADITION!

Here we are pondering...can you barely see the Tetons?  
Talk about bad luck, the day we went up to Targhee there were tons of fires and lots of smoke!!

Here we go! My first Fair!! We truly felt like Idahoans after this

(370 lbs & 273 lbs)!!!

My favorite part was the Cake Decorating Competition

YES! That's really a cake

The Professionals' theme was to decorate based off a favorite fabric. 

The detail on this cake was unbelievable!

What is a Fair without ridiculously greasy Fair food...Potato on a Stick, yum

Then, on to the animals...

I think this naked sheep was embarrassed....

at least his friends got to put on jackets.

For Luke:

And BABY miniature horses...cutest things ever!!

And guess who we saw...TOBY! If only he had kept his facial hair...

Cindy would be proud.

When I got my new camera, Tyler decided he wanted to take up photography using my old we have been going a little photo-crazy trying to figure out how to use each of our new cameras!

Our first lesson was at the BYU-I gardens.  Objectives: aperture, shutter speed, and focal point.

(BTW, did you guys know that I was the model for this statue?)

It's fun to use each other as subjects :)

 See that shutter speed at work!!

Our second lesson took place at the Temple.  Objective: Use the beautiful lighting of the sunset.

I love to see how we each have a different "eye" when it comes to taking pictures.

Now every time we leave the house, Tyler suggests we bring our's actually pretty dorky, last night we walked around the fair each carrying a camera around our neck (and didn't even take a single picture).  But, I love sharing this hobby with Tyler!! It makes it so much more fun to see his enthusiasm! And he says now he won't get so bored if I wanna take pictures cause he can be shooting away right with me!  So, Cindy, hopefully you'll be enjoying more pictures now...  :)
