This has not been a fun week, we have been yucky sick for what it seems like forever. Nothing much really going on here. Just trying to rent our condo, getting over sickness and trying to soak up every free Utah activity we can to keep up entertained. I would have pictures to post be Reese was playing with the camera and deleted them all. How nice of here, we will have to keep a sharper eye out for that. We went to the Aviary in Salt Lake last week and had a good time checking out all the birds. It was REALLY hot outside and poor little Brodie was so hot and tired. Brodie is army crawling like a champ and Reese is going potty on the toilet, only if she is naked. She hasn't quite mastered the wearing panties that aren't diapers thing but she will pee in the toilet all day if she is naked. Nothing else really going on here!

Reese had her first dental check up this past Wednesday. I was prepared for a melt-down but Reese did awesome, she didn't want to leave her X-ray chair because she got to wear a smilie face lead vest. She did great and got a clean bill of health.

Drive In Movie

I have always have fun memories of going to a drive-in movie and there is a drive in movie theater in Salt Lake so we went up last night and saw a double feature. Jeremy had never been to a drive in before. I was so excited to go! We had a great time even though my children would never fall asleep! Brodie finally fell asleep at 11:00 and Reese never did until we left at 1 AM! Funny girl. We saw Ice Age 3 and Night at the Museum 2. It was really fun making a bed in the trunk of our car and just having so fun family time together. I know the kids are to young to remember it but I hope to find one in Georgia and do it at least once a summer like my mom did with us. If you haven't gone in SLC, I HIGHLY recommend it.

Scottish Festival

Since we are leaving Utah in August and Jeremy is unemployed we have been trying to do all sorts of local free festivities. We went to the Scottish Festival with our friends the Perry's. They had a lot of neat things, like log throwing and a lot of scottish bag pipe bands playing it was really fun and different thing to try, I think this weekend we are going to the llama festival. LOL. I know llama festival, only in Utah. I don't remember GA having all sorts of cool fun things like this to do in the summer. I will have to scope it out more know since having kiddies. Reese saw this jumper thing and had to do it, she had a blasted and loved every minute of it.

Grotto Trail

We went on a small little hike today as a family and it was so calming and a much needed break from the stresses of joblessness. We are looking forward to doing more hiking as a family and are planning a trip up to doughnut falls to hike up there. Jeremy would love to go camping but with a 5 month old and a 2 yr old...shoot me in the foot. LOL! We will stick to family friendly hikes for right now. We love Utah's beautiful mountains and scenery.

Go Daddy!

Jeremy has been playing softball as a sub on his friends team, he really enjoys it but the games start so late we haven't been able to watch them. Yesterday he had a make-up game from a rained out game at 6:30 so we packed up the kiddies and went to see our daddy play. Reese loved watching Jeremy she kept saying "Go daddy" and would get so excited when she saw him on the field. It was so adorable. Reese is her Daddy's #1 fan.


Now when you read that title you need to read it like the cookie monster...COOOKIES! I made cookies the other night and we where just having fun. Reese took the mixer and ate all the dough off and then wanted more. We had fun making and especially eating the cookies! YUM!
