that is. Why? Well we don't really have one. And while the rest of
our family and friends ring in the season with coats, sweaters and
crisp cool air at football games.....we are stuck sweating and waiting
for the temperatures to break like a bad fever. Every year we start
to get a "little" impatient with the summer heat and start
praying for the cool, beautiful winter weather that justifies our
living here. So what do we do in the meantime? While it's still too
hot to feel like fall? We get the heck out of Dodge, and we get out
as often as we can! This weekend we decided on a last minute trip
to Freeman Farms just outside of Prescott, AZ to take the kids
to the Pumpkin Festival. It was exactly what we needed; great
weather, good company, a lot of pumpkins, animals, tractors, hay
rides, face painting, kettle corn, a corn maze and a train ride
that included an old fashioned train robbery by the Old West Acting
group. Here are a few pics from the weekend, thanks for the
invite Harbecks, we had a great time! Now to figure out where
we will escape to this weekend.....hmmmm?

(all 2 of you who read this). We've been super busy and just haven't
been good bloggers. Everything has been going well in the Mortensen
fam. We just got back from a week in Colorado with Tyler's
family. We were there for his brother Justin's farewell. He's been
called to serve in the Oakland/San Fransisco Spanish Speaking
Mission and entered the MTC yesterday. It was a great break
from the AZ heat and as always great to spend time with family.
Other than that we've had some birthday parties, lots of pool
days, Tyler's softball on Tuesday nights, and training for the
Ragnar coming up this October in Las Vegas. Tyler signed up for
this one, surprise, and has been training with me. So we have a lot
coming up and will definitely try and do better with the blogging!
Until next time, here are some recent pics from our trip to
Alamosa and a few randoms!
Birthday party cupcakes!
I'd say that is Smurf blue? How bout you?
Just hangin out.
The new sleeping bag Grandma Debbie got Grace! She was so excited
to sleep in it.
Crew WOULD NOT stop playing on this thing. He absolutely loved it!
Ty and his "little" brother Justin when we were leaving and saying bye.
Grace outside of "The Malt Shoppe" in Pagosa Springs. This is the neatest
little town and this place has the best shakes. She doesn't like to pose....

The last week of March we were lucky enough to have my parents
come out and visit us in AZ for a full week. They loaded up the truck
and drove all the way from Star Valley, Wy with Bailey, the monster
truck (what Grace calls a 4 wheeler), a dirt bike, roller blades, a sewing
machine, Bill's dog Tanner and a soon to be pawned off, adorable black
puppy named Ashes. Here are some pics from their week here..............
My dad meet a friend out at the Canyons Motocross Track and
competed in a Grand Prix race. It was a combination of motocross
track and desert trail. We had a blast watching him and he did
awesome taking first place in his division. Who cares that the only
other racer in his division was 70, had training wheels on his bike
and had to stop 3 times during the race to use the bathroom!
He still won! : )
We also had time to catch a spring training game. It was a great day

our landscaping and took our ever evolving yard a step closer to
being a front yard we like. We still have to plant flowers and "HOA"
approved plants and then we'll fill in some areas with bark or mulch
to finish it off. Thanks for the help Justin. Here are pics of the first
3 stages, stage 4 to come soon...............hopefully!
