Fun Times

We had a good weekend past and I'm so blessed to have the family that I have. We all had such a fun time being with each other. I was sad to wake up this morning and send Dan off to work.

Wednesday and Thursday Dan was in California, so when Friday rolled around, we were glad to have him home and only go to work for a few hours. We went to Rock Canyon park and had a fun time there. Actually, Scarlett and Tyda slept for a long time and so Hawley had all the fun. They eventually woke up and when they did, they had a lot of fun.

Saturday, Jenna and Dan ran a 5K and the crazies and I went to see them run. Jenna ended up getting 3rd place in her age group--Congrats Jenna!!!

Sunday was a normal relaxing day and then we went to the Skene's for desert. Grant was in love with my baby and was so fun with her. He didn't want her to go at the end of the night. He read her a book and she hit him with a stick. We played games and had good brownies.

Monday we were going to go to the zoo, but thought that it would be too crazy, so we went to the Living Planet Aquarium instead. It was a lot of fun. The crazies loved it and hated it. They didn't like the sting rays or the octopus. They cried so much when we tried to get them to touch the sting rays. It was pretty funny.

We had a wonderful weekend and I'm so glad that we were able to do some fun things as a family. Nothing beats family, especially mine!!!

New Names for Body Parts

Dan took our oldest to the potty the day we were up in the mountains. After she went, he decided that he should go before we started our hike (this was like the first time he peed in front of her.) He starts to go and the little crazy thing says, "You don't use your thumb to go potty like that dad!"

Irene, why didn't you inform him of this before he had to learn it from a three year old?

Also, I don't know if you remember this one, but they still call them the same thing.

They got this joke off of Backyardigans. I don't find it at all funny, but they find it hilarious. Oh, and those are completely fake laughs!

Funny Joke?? from Tiffany on Vimeo.

If you can't hear them, the joke goes like this...

What is a dogs favorite snack?


And the other one is...

What did Tarzan say when he saw a herd of elephants?

Look! A herd of elephants

Stewart Falls

Saturday was such a nice day. We invited Jenna and Zoey and headed on up the canyon. We had a little picnic before we started the hike

The girls did awesome on a 4 mile hike. It was a fun time and I'm glad that we were able to go. I now know that I need to hike more often, I'm kinda out of shape. Hopefully I can get into shape before we do a 19 mile hike in a couple of weeks. Oh help me!!! :)
On the way there.

Nap Time?

Zoey yelled at me yesterday. Because she did this, she got sent to time out. After a little while I asked her to come to me so that we could talk, but she never came. Finally I went over to her and this is what the little crazy girl was doing....

She slept like this until she almost fell off, which was about 10-15 minutes.

Our Little Musician

Tyda found this fun contraption on the floor and decided that she wanted to play it. She is so musical!

Shopping and Fun

A couple weeks ago we had a wedding reception to attend in Draper and so we made a few stops on the way up. Our first stop was at Cabela's. Dan had a gift card that he needed to use and the crazies love seeing the animals and all the fun gadgets. This is them in a chair blind. They thought it was awesome!!

Tyda loved just being in the cart leaning back, chillin.

After that we went to Ikea to get another kitchen chair, so we can eat together as a family. We didn't get any pics there, but we did have a fun time. I love that store.

We went to eat dinner before the reception and Hawley decided to pee her pants when we were getting ready to leave. I remembered to pack some extra undies, but I completely forgot some pants. Since we weren't close to home we had to make a pit stop to find something for her to wear and I found some dresses on sale. I had to buy all the crazies the same dress, because they were so cute. Here are the girls wearing their new dresses and sitting in their new chairs.

Birthday Party

I have gotten myself way behind! Then when I think about all the things that I should blog about, I go a little crazy. Maybe that is why my house is looking cleaner than it normally does and why I have finally gotten around to doing some of the little projects that I've wanted to do for awhile.

I'll start the many blogs with a birthday party the girls went to. Our neighbor, Tyler, had his 3rd birthday a couple weeks ago and I'll just say that I wouldn't want to be the next one to throw a party after that. They had a clown (who was amazing), good cake and ice cream, games, etc... The girls had fun, even though they were kinda scared of the clown. Big surprise there huh!?!

Here are some of the kids with the clown. You can see that the girls didn't get their face painted. That would be because they didn't want to get to close to the clown.

The clown made fun balloons. Hawley got a dog with a leash and Scarlett got a giraffe.

Our awesome neighbors.

Some of the things from the gift bag!

Stay tuned for more about our lives.
