Laundry Room Flood

I made a big boo-boo. About a week ago, I pulled the washer and dryer out and cleaned behind them (you know, since I'm such an awesome cleaner and such). Anyway, the laundry room had been smelling funky, but cleaning behind them seemed to fix the problem. Yesterday, I went to do a load of laundry for the first time since cleaning behind them. Well, apparently, when I was cleaning, the draining hose from the washer had come loose. John was in the kitchen when he suddenly yelled, "Mary!!!! OH SHOOOOOOOOT!" Water was spilling out the laundry room door, all over the carpet and everywhere. John ran for the wet vac (thank goodness we own a wet vac- thank you Ray and Laura!!) For the next hour or so, we sucked up water with the wet vac and then soaked the rest of it up with towels. It took quite some time and the carpet is still drying with fans!! .. oops-a-daisy!

Grandpa Jenson's Funeral

John and his siblings in order from right to left
John's Grandpa Jenson passed away the week before last. We went down for the funeral in St. George. It was sad, but so good to see John's family and meet some of John's extended family members I hadn't met before. John's grandpa was a wonderful man and he was 97 years old! He will be greatly missed. We got to visit with John's family that night at their hotel which was really fun.

Fall Motorcycle Ride

We went for motorcycle ride up the canyon to see the leaves. It seemed like everyone else had the same idea cuz there were a ton of people up there. Although the leaves in Utah don't compare to the Maine foliage around this time of year, it was still pretty cool. (and COLD) We turned around earlier than planned cuz it was so cold.
