Fall Life

Hey everyone, it's Jamund,

We've had a pretty busy fall life. In the previous post we saw pictures of Simon's gymnastics experience and learned about our pending moving plans. Those are good things, but there have been many other good things as well. Let's see some pictures of them.

I took a day off last month so we could all go as a family up to South Jordan and see a few exciting places including Gardner Village and Wheeler Farms as well as visit the famous Dunford Donuts factory. It's famous for me anyway, because it's where Utah's finest donuts are produced. I love them. Anyway, it ended up being a pretty stressful and busy day, but this picture proves that Simon and I had some fun at some point during the day :) The donuts were of course delicious and were eaten up in a few days.

Gardner Village

Gardner Village is a little place with miniature houses with seasonal shops stuffed in them. Kari loves one of the year-round shops called Down To Earth which is some sort of boutique home store. Because I appreciate great design I too become enamored with the $80 pillows and $400 chairs. One day, oh one day. Anyway, Kari wants the gray bed they have. The village was having a witch themed event, which was good. Simon loved for some reason the witch-themed outhouse called "Witchy Poo".

This place is alright. We have to remember that the cafe has pretty ghetto cafeteria food, but there are a lot of fun places to shop and look around, so it's worth a visit once in a while. Simon liked it a lot.


Later we ended up at Wheeler Farms and Kari was looking cute in front of a baby cow. Forget the cow. Baby Eleanor and Kari are way cuter. That place was alright, but it's far away and kind of dry.


More recently we went to the pumpkin patch at Harward Farms here in Springville. Simon was a peach and picked his own pumpkin. Lovely boy. We also enjoyed the hay stack maze and tractor ride.  It was free also. Seriously, we love Springville!!!

the past few weeks

Do you ever feel like this?


Stuck in a foam pit and wading through it all?

I'm not sure that's how I've felt the past few weeks, but it is nice imagery. Mostly October was...hmmm. You ever have a time where not so much happens, per se, but the wheel is set in motion for big thing(s) to happen? I guess that's what October was like.

We are planning to move. We aren't sure exactly when, but we're mostly sure where, although that could change as well (specific versus general). Jamund felt that we need to move to the Bay Area, and we're currently planning on moving to this new development in San Mateo—although it isn't finished yet and we are not sure exactly when it will be or how much it will cost (and yes, everyone, we do know it is "so expensive" to live in California/the Bay Area. Thank you. I am from there.).

So in other words, foam pit time. Wading wading wading (waiting waiting waiting?). We are trying to get our house ship shape so we can put it on the market in case it ends up staying on the market for longer than ideal.

I guess it's good that we don't have a set time frame for that reason; Jamund already works from home for a company in Redwood City, so it's not like he has to be out there at any certain date. The kids aren't in school, so that's not an issue. Mostly we're just hoping it all works out as best it should. If our house sells super fast and we have to move out before the new development is ready, we can go live at the cabin in Arnold for awhile and Jamund can work remotely from there. So really, we're going to be just fine. Hopefully. As long as the house sells in a reasonable time!

If you know anyone who wants a nice family home in Springville, let us know...
