It's so quiet....

School has started and it is so different than in the summer. This is the first year that two of my children are in school all day and I hardly know what to do with myself. My little boy and I are beside ourselves missing the other two. We just try and help each other get through the day. We party together!!

Part two...Utah

On Tuesday we visited Thanksgiving point, Dinosaur Museum with the Nortons. Wow! That place is big and very crowded. Then we went to IKEA for lunch. YUM!! I had a salad and my main man had the Swedish yummy. Then we got lost in IKEA for about two hours, and only covered one floor of the store,( yes, it is that big). At about six pm we met Grandma & Grandpa and went up in the big Cottonwood canyon for a stay at the cabin. The boys slept for a while. Wednesday we hiked around silver lake. It is very beautiful. The kids loved the animals we saw... Chipmunks, ducks, bugs, fish... it was fun. Thursday we hiked up to donut falls. There has been a rock slide since the last time I was up there, but it is still beautiful. I couldn't believe how awesome my kids were. Even the little one hiked by himself the entire time.Friday Morning we came back into town(SLC) By way of park city and their fabulous Outlet mall. I think I shopped myself silly. Friday night we ate dinner with Shawn's Uncle's Family and then went to the Davis county fair and milked some goats, but I forgot my camera....Duh! Saturday we shopped Gateway and let the kids play in the fountain most of the day. Then we left Sunday Morning dark and early and headed home.

It is so good to be home.....

Ok... Here we go...

We went to Utah from Saturday at noon to the following Sunday at 5am. It was a long Vacation for three small children and two weary parents, but we did it and loved it.

Our first adventure was with Aunt Nan... We went to the Old Bubble, now called the Bountiful Rec center.Everyone had a great time and got very waterlogged..except me. I slept in a lounge chair most of the time because My main man and nanny had the kids. I was surprised that I didn't get burned... On Sunday we took the kids to temple square where we toured the conference center and climbed on anything and everything, especially fountains. The kids had never seen all the things on temple square and still haven't, because we got hungry & tired and went back to grandma's to rest. On Monday we went to the Hoggle Zoo... Wow! There were a lot of animals and stuff. We took a train ride around the Zoo and even found a fountain to play with. Monday night we met at memory grove with some families we know in Utah, for my birthday. We had a great time (except for the wasps trying to eat my burger). The park is so beautiful and has water running right through the middle of it. The kids had a great time and it was so nice to see some good friends again.
I am going to have to end this blog and start a new one because it is hard to move the pictures in a long blog...
