a trip to a punkin' patch

Today, Z + I met up with some of our very good friends to make a little double date goodness happen. We went to a darling little pumpkin patch in west Orem and strolled around picking our pumpkins and tossing husks of corn through wooden boards with holes cut out. It was a great time + we love the pumpkins we picked. I love getting to hang out with the Rumsey's for many reasons and obvious reasons, too. Some of those reasons include: Jenna is one of my best friends, and she is also pregnant and really cute (she was also cute when she was not pregnant), Corbin + Zach have been friends since they were in jr./high school and are so fun together (they laugh non-stop), they always show us good places to eat and great films (Troll 2, make your life better +check it out), etc. etc. We are lucky to have friends like them.

 ^ okay, seriously?! How cute is this bump?!

 ^ Zach + Corb as gourds 
 ^ I asked Z if he wanted a photo with these giant pumpkins and as he sat down he said, "Probably." good.
 ^ It will be sad to not live next to these beauties one day (PhD school is in our future.. someday)
After we got some dinner together, Zach and I had a date with two of the sweetest, cutest little girls we know. The Pratt's were in our ward for the majority of the time we have been in this ward. We were sad when they moved out, but are always happy to see them again and babysit. I have always loved babysitting. When I was in high school, the majority of my weekends were spent babysitting + I loved every second of it. Now, I get to do it with my sweetheart which is even better. We especially love the Pratt girls because, hello, they are absolutely darling. 
 ^ Here is a cute photo of Hazel + Zach. She is SO SO SO cute. The first Sunday in our ward I saw here and was said to Z, "I think that's the cutest baby I have ever seen" haha! Her big blue eyes, curly blonde hair and chubby little legs are quite the combo. Plus, she's so sweet and we love chatting with her.
 Also, I made a thing! I edited one of the photos from the pumpkin patch and wanted to share because I like it. Feel free to save and make it your phone background. It is on mine!

oh, this time of the year

The change from September to October is one of the most significant changes of the year. It's when summer really changes into fall, when people put a pumpkin or two on their porch, when the leaves color change is in full swing and when Mr. White + myself are reminded of the time which we fell in love, 2 years ago now. 

It was the month we told each other "I love you" + the month our relationship changed for the best, just like the leaves on the trees. Ah, how I LOVE fall! I have a feeling this fall will be extra wonderful. Especially with the White family tradition of homemade donuts on Halloween + watching Halloween movies, too. I can't wait.

Bring on the cooler weather, sweaters, boots, scarves, hot chocolate, pumpkins and candy! We love you, fall!

A recent event was that we got some sweet pictures taken of us by one of our favorite photographers ever, Madi Larsen, and here students. She is THE best. We love her + that she is willing to share her talents check out her blog (contact her, I know you wanna!) here.
