Summer Vacation '09

For our vacation this year we decided to tour Utah. We purchased a pass from They are a great way to do a ton of stuff for very little money. It also included lunch at the Lion House. We went to the Thankgiving Point Dinosour museum, the Gardens, and the Childrens park area there. Then we went to Discovery Gateway. The kids loved this. We were there for hours. It was Elli's favorite place by far. The especially loved the balls and the water place.

The Aquarium in Sandy was Fantastic. It was the best one that I have personally every been to as far as fun for kids. It was uncrouded and you could pet sting rays and fish as long as you like. The kids love to play in the pretend coral area.

Elli Updates

It is the 6th of Juy today. Elli is 1 now. This morning she brought me her sandles and sat down so that I could put them on her. Then she headed outside to play with the dogs and cats. She is so sweet, but can be so demanding also. She yells at me when she wants something and just kind of makes happy noises when she is content. She started walking at 11 months, and is doing great now. She explored non-stop all day long.

Grandma's 80th and Eli's 4th

Do you think kids learn by watching?

On the Computer before she can crawl.

Every time that we use the laptop, Elli decides to join in on the fun. She will reach over and try to hit all the keys and grab the little blue lights on the computer. It is pretty funny because she really gets into it and vigorously opens and closes her fingers on all the keys.

The Number Game

The other day Tony started the number game for prayers. He would pick a number between 1 and 10 and the kids would try to guess the closest to see who could say the prayer on the food. Tonight we were going to say family prayer and Carson decided he was going to do the number game for us. He said,"Ok, pick a number between nine and eleven." Tony picked ten, and sure enough it was ten. The funny part was how amazed and excited Carson was that Tony picked the number right on. We can tell Carson is going to be really good at the numbers game and maybe paper, rock, scissors..........or maybe he will just call it paper?!
