Goin' to the Mountains

We try to go to the mountains a few times a year, and for whatever reason we hadn't done it yet this year, so we finally made it last week. We had so much fun, the weather was perfect, and the company was great!
The girls and I had fun walking around and looking at different colors of leaves. Halle was pretty interested in them. And Maya had fun walking with a big walking stick.

Jarren had a lot of fun as you can see from these next pictures. He's kind of into making silly faces.

How do you eat a s'more? Karli and Kate had fun chilling in the chairs while they ate theirs. S'mores are the best part of cooking over a fire. Mmm.

Basketball MVP

Jason had a basketball tournament for work this last week. And me and the kids were able to come watch. They played at Energy Solutions Arena where the Utah Jazz play. And the cool thing was that Jason's team got to be coached by Jerry Sloan, the head coach for the Utah Jazz. Me and Jarren thought that was pretty awesome.

At the end of the tournament they did awards and Jason got the MVP award. He got a basketball signed by the 4 Jazz coaches. He downplayed it all by saying, "I didn't know they gave the MVP award to people who miss layups." He then proceeded to say, "I'll never give the Jazz players a hard time again for missing layups." I guess it's hard to shoot there. Anyway, good job Jason! I'm proud of you!

The Girls!

I came outside today to see some of the girls doing this. Yes, that is Karli inside the carseat in the stroller, how she fit I have no idea. The things they think of sometimes!

Look who's walking!

So I know this isn't a picture of Halle walking, but I think it's so cute. This is her new favorite place to sit in the kitchen.

Halle started walking almost everywhere this last week. She's so fun to watch because she thinks she is so neat. I still need to take a picture of her walking, I just haven't yet.


Maya and Karli started dance a month ago. I think they look so cute all dressed up every week. Maya really likes it. Karli on the other hand, not so much. Karli tells me every week that she doesn't want to go; and I'm mean because I tell her that I've already paid for it so she has to go. I say the say thing about preschool because every time she's supposed to go she tells me she doesn't want to go. And again I'm mean, I tell her I've already paid so she needs to go. I tell her she should go to preschool so she can learn how to read when she goes to kindergarten. Her response to that is that she likes it when I read to her. Hmm, what do you say to that?
Anway, here's some cute dance pictures. Kate's not in dance but I really think she'd like it. She loves to put on this dance costume and dance around.
