So, what is for dinner? It is 6:13 and I have NO idea. I have been so busy lately with PTA, kids, and just life in general that most days I forget to plan ahead. If you have any super yummy and super easy meals please, I beg of you, put them in the comments section!
Yesterday we took the kids for a drive through Guardsman's Pass. It is such a beautiful drive, we go at least once a summer. Usually we go up Big Cottonwood Canyon, through the pass, and into Park City. We end up on Main Street. This time we took the long way (I'm a spoiled wife) We did the pass then took a long dirt road. Twice I had Farren pull over to get some leaves that are changing so the kids can take them to school for show and teach. Once he had to climb. I am so glad he has good balance! We ended up in Midway. Oh my goodness! I had never been through there. What a cute, fun town. I LOVE it! As we drove I even noticed a covered bridge that is perfect for a good family photo shoot. It looks like it belongs in The Bridges Of Madison County, with the changing leaves behind it. I told Farren that we need to get some fleece pullovers and do family pictures. Of course this was met by a huge groan :) He always had negative (in his mind anyways) experiance with family pictures, so he dreads them. Our last family picture was done when Aspen was 2 months old. She is 6 and 1/2 now!
We stopped at a park and played with teh kids in Heber. It was an awesome park. had all the "dangerous" things that "Today's Kids" don't get to enjoy. Like REALLY high twisty slides and those metal domes that you can hang upside down from. That was a blast!!!!! I regret not grabbing my camera. I always have it with me, but I need to send it in to get cleaned so I didnt grab it. The BEST thing was that even though she felt sick, we made it both up and down the canyon without Aspen puking. Yep, NO PUKE! Woohoooo!!!!!!!
Last night I couldn't sleep. It was after 4 am before I managed to get a short snooze in. Anyhow, I watched 2 documentaries on TLC about beauty pageants and toddlers. It made me want to puke. Fake teeth, tans, fake hair, and dresses that cost more than my car. No thank you. Not my kids. One Mom wouldn't let her preschooler compete in the swimsuit competition because she was too "chubby" and then spoke about how her daughter, who is maybe 4, needs to diet. Sick Sick Sick.
Today I happened to stumble on an old friend's blog. I read through and it low and behold she had an old friend's blog linked from hers. This gal was my best friend in Kindergarten for many years. I haven't seen her since her wedding, when Sage was an infant. I left her a message on the comments section, so hopefully she will get back to me.
Well, Aspen is in here asking that I charge her MP3 player, Kyson is in here saying his neck hurts, and Sage is crying because she stepped on a stick. Ahhh Just another day in paradise.
Labels? Just peel them off!
