A Late Night Swim!

Apparently, the kids had too much fun swimming at the Legacy Center tonight; kicking, screaming & throwing themselves on the ground when it was time to get out...embarrassing!

Show -n- TELL

With a huge grin on her face, Kate announced at preschool for show- n- tell, "my daddy says I can marry Carter!" The entire class started laughing, including the teacher (Carter's mom) & Kate.
Apparently, the night before when Steve was laying with Kate before bed, Kate asked if she could marry him (Steve). He said "no, I am married to mommy." Kate asked, "can I marry Carter?" Steve said "yes." However, he forgot to inform her she could marry Carter when she is twenty-five!

A Day on Trax!

We took our first ride on Trax for a Saturday outing . We caught the light rail in Sandy and rode it to Temple Square. We walked around for a while, doubled up with the umbrellas & tried to stay dry from the constant drizzle we've had for most of the week.

Taking a peek out of the window.

Mommy & Chandler

Kate liked to wave at anything & everything that we passed.

All aboard!

Today we took the kids to Midway for our annual tubing adventure at Soldier Hollow. We all had a "tube-u-lar" time one way or another!

Our snow baby... not big enough for the hills yet.

Our snow bunny, strutting her stuff!

Steve & Kate cruising down the hill!

Kate covering her eyes!

Chilling at the bottom.

Dragging the kids to the lodge to eat our picnic lunch we brought.

Just a twenty-two degree day.

Warming up by the fire after lunch... ready to hit the hill's again!
"Why do I have to do all the work around here?"

"Keep pulling mommy!"

Steve got some speed when he went by himself.

Sommer & Kate at the bottom of the hill.

Kate loved to push Chan down the kiddie hill & then chase after him, giggling the entire way.

Using teamwork to bring it back up.

Chan made a dozen snowballs...

... then ate everyone!

Kate made a few snow angels before we went home!

Bye, Bye Binky!

"Oh NO... my parents took my binky away!"

"Is that why I haven't gotten much sleep at night?"

" But now without it, I can give kisses..."

"show off my pearly whites..."

"stick out my tongue..."

"flaunt my baby blues..."

"and flash my million dollar smile."

"Thanks mom & dad!"
