Andrew sure loves his peas! (although it seems he likes to wear them more than eat them)

Moose in Big Cottonwood

As we headed up Big Cottonwood Canyon to walk around Silver Lake, this guy showed up. He was easily the largest moose I've seen in Utah. I spent some time taking pictures in the pouring rain in my shorts and t-shirt. This week's lesson - being prepared doesn't just mean have your camera equipment with you. Bring a coat!

On the return trip we found a family of moose. We've never seen a bull, cow and calf playing nicely together. It was like being in Yellowstone with cars stopped all alond the road shoulder.

Amber's gone short! Amber and Megan both lost 7 inches of hair, although Megan's was much longer to start with.

A fun day at Copperton Park

Utah State Fair

The photography exhibit/contest at the Utah State Fair is quite large. We throw some of our pictures in every once in a while. Our goal, of course, is prize money! (Actually it's to at least break even with the printing costs and entry fees) This year's judge was tough and there were some awards we didn't agree with. (Yes... even in the categories we didn't enter.) This year was a little more fun since Amber has her own camera and entered a picture of a bee on a Columbine flower. We made the mistake of entering in categories that Joey and Quinn also entered. Joey has become the pro close-up photographer, and placed well. I think every one of the Foote photographers has my dad to thank for our eye for composition.

My perfect record of one ribbon per entry is over. We'll do better next year. It's always fun anyway!

Amber was excited to see the Honorable Mention ribbon next to her entry in the Utah State Fair Photography Exhibit. We're sure this will be the first of many awards for her pictures.

Fall fishing has picked up at Strawberry. It's nice to feed the family with just one fish! (One's Joey's, by the way.) Quinn and Joey are heading up in the morning to get the ones Joey and I left last weekend. Fall colors are starting - pretty soon we'll be in the snow again!

Andrew "Enjoying" the Utah State Fair

It was actually at night and Andrew was watching his sisters on a roller coaster. I just thought this picture looked crazy!

Twin Lakes Jaunt

Amber and I snuck fishing gear on a hike to Twin Lakes. This was our first and only cast since as soon as the sun goes down it gets freezing cold... well... freezing for shorts and t-shirts.
