Discovery Gateway

Today Dallas invited us to go up to Discovery Gateway. I've always wanted to go, but never wanted to go alone and pay the price. Lucky for me, she's got a pass, and we got in free!! Ethan was in pure HEAVEN. Who doesn't like to eat ice cream, push strollers, chase balls, play in the water, and sit in a cop car for hours!? We first went to a class where they made ice cream, then we let them run wild. It was pure freedom for my child who doesn't stop for two seconds. For the first good half hour he sat in the cop car, drove it, and mostly stared at all the other kids. Then he joined the fun and also got SOAKED. That place is great, and Ethan had tons of fun! We will definitely need to go back! Thanks Dal.

Heber Outing

This weekend we were supposed to be headed to East Canyon with Kurt's whole family, but because of some date mix ups, we found out it really isn't until February. So instead Kurt and I invited the fam up to Midway. It was lots of fun and mostly lots of relaxing.

A couple of us headed over to do some major tubing at Soldier Hollow. Tubing is only fun when you get towed up the hill while relaxing on your tube. Who would want to walk up a hill? Definitely not me!
The rest of the trip was filled with golf cart rides, walks, games, movies, some Guitar World Tour, anxiety about getting tickets to Rascal Flatts, and a trip to Dairy Keen for their famous shakes!! It was a short but sweet trip! And can I say that I love that Ethan is finally at an age where he runs off and plays with his cousins!! I love it!

It was a fun trip and always full of laughs!

Our Own Mr. Potato Head

I can't stop laughing at these pictures. Maybe it's just a mom thing where you are having a moment with your kid. I was talking on the phone the other night and Kurt kept putting these in Ethan's mouth and having him come look at me. I couldn't help but laugh. Of course I wanted pictures so we had him stick them in his mouth again. Only this time he was pulling all sorts of faces which were making us crack up! And yes I know he looks a tad white trash hangin out in his onesie, but I don't care! So here he is....our own Potato Head!
