Aren’t these Fall pumpkins adorable?
Can you guess what they are made out of? Toilet paper rolls!!! Our Grandfriends had so much fun making them.
All you need to make them is, a “fat quarter” square of fabric. (thinner, cheaper fabric works better), some ribbon for a stem, a roll of toilet paper, and some green pipe cleaner.
Place the roll in the middle of the fabric square, and start pulling up small sections and tucking them into the top of the roll. Keep tucking until the entire roll is covered. You may need to clean up the pleats in the fabric to give it more of a pumpkin look. Finish your pumpkin by adding a folded piece of ribbon, and a pipe cleaner that has been twisted around a pencil. EASY PEASY! Lots of fun for sure!
My favorite comment for the activity…. “We can prep for an emergency, and have it be cute.” True, so true!

WE LOVE FALL!
Autumn is such a beautiful time of the year in our mountain valley. Here are photos taken on our super popular, “Morning Rides”
Up Logan Canyon, there is a beautiful little area near Camp Lomia. In the Fall is it is covered with fire red sugar maples! Beautiful shades of bright reds/oranges, and golden yellows.

Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge
More About the Refuge
Bear River MBR is one of the over 550 refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System – a network of lands set aside and managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service specifically for wildlife. The Refuge and other wetlands associated with the Great Salt Lake provide critical habitat for migrating birds, over 250 species moving through this area annually by the millions to rest and feed. As part of the Bear River Bay, the Refuge is designated as a Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network site, a globally important shorebird area.
Today, Bear River MBR contains nearly 80,000 acres of marsh, open water, uplands, and alkali mudflats. The marshes and open water are managed using a complex system of dikes and water control structures to provide a variety of water depths suitable for the needs of different waterbird species. The Refuge is an excellent place to observe wildlife along a 12-mile auto tour route, as well as enjoying hunting, fishing and wildlife photography.
