Pennsylvania Goodness!!!

Most of you reading this have never had a Dunkin Donut, and if you have, you probably have not had a real Dunkin Donut....a peanut butter cream filled Dunkin Donut! My family is from PA and they really have the best food and the best treats! Any time that someone from our family is back home they are required to bring back all of the goods! PA is the only place (that we have found) that has peanut putter cream donuts and they are to die for. Here are some pics of the yummy stuff we love....

These are "gobs" from the best cooks in the world...the Amish. They sell these wonderful things at farmers markets and they are something that I remember from my childhood. They are like giant sandwich cookies that are vanilla and chocolate and then of course peanut butter and chocolate. I actually craved these all through my pregnancy and of course couldn't have them because you have to travel to State College for them!
Here are some great PA treats, tasty kakes and Boyers Mallo Cups. How is the whole state of Pennsylvania not obese with all of their wonderful food??

My dad and David also picked up some adorable Penn State clothing for Sam. I will take some pics of her when she wears them and post them!

Play Dates

I love spending time with my sisters. I have 2 sisters who also had babies this year and we recently set up weekly play dates for the kids (actually they are for us ;). It's been a lot of fun and I look forward to them each week. Last week we came to my house and just let the babies crawl on a blanket as we talked for hours. This week we went to Wheeler Farm and I thought it was so much fun! We miss you Wend!!

All 4 nieces...
My 4 year old niece took this picture of us..pretty good!

I just wanted to wish my hubby a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Nic, I love you so much. I couldn't ask for a better husband. You really are the man of my dreams. You make me happy everyday. I couldn't live without you. I hope you have a wonderful 27th Birthday!!

For All You Utah Fans....

We are totally hooked on going to the Call 700 Kyle Whittingham Show every Thursday. They have free food, give-aways, feature different players each week, and talk about the upcoming Saturday game. It was neat to talk to Kyle after the show, he was SO nice and personable. It was a fun night!

State Fair

It wouldn't be Fall without a night at the State Fair. Nic and I go to the fair every year but this year was especially fun. My sister Jenny wanted our family to all go to the fair together for her birthday. It started out pretty rainy and cold but ended up being a nice evening. We did the all-you-can-eat ice cream night, watched the Alligator & Bear shows, watched the kids ride the rides, ate BBQ Turkey at the Utah's Own section, and tried some of the deep fried fair specialities. It was so much fun, here are some pictures of our night. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENNY!

I LOVE the Fall!!

I just love this time of year! I am so happy that the weather is starting to cool off and that it's back to school time. Nic just started his 2nd year of law school. Sam and I are adjusting ok to him being gone. I am trying to keep my schedule busy so that we have a lot of fun things to do during the day. I have joined a card swap with my older sister, every Wednesday I do play dates with my 2 sisters and their babies, and I am starting up Friday field trips with my Father-in-law and sister-in-law. I will try to post some pics of our fun activities! For now, here are some pics of my favorite people...

Here is a video of Sam laughing (sorry it's upside down, Nic was standing over us videotaping)
