Tonight was so fun! For Family Home Evening we went to the Kids fair area, called Cornbellys up in Lehi (Thanksgiving Point). The Hunt family, with their 4 boys and brandnew baby Hannah, braved the trip with us. We had so much fun, enjoying all the attractions for the kids. The only thing we didn't have a lot of time for was the corn maze, which is what they're know for! There was a lot of other stuff to do and see, including pig races, the cow train, The Creature, and go-Karts. But the kids' favorite thing (ok, and Ben and Paul's too) was the jumping pillow area.
One of my favorite pictures is this one of Garrett and Jaxon. They are about
3 weeks apart in age, and they are so much alike!

Even I enjoyed the go-karts...

Can you tell who is having the most fun on the big slide?

New stuff

Ben's mother has been in Utah for the last several days helping with a new baby up in Midvale, our niece, Miriam. Yea Stephanie! Luckily, Grandma was able to find a day to take the boys to Ephraim to visit another of Ben's sisters, Sarah. Yea Sarah!, while she goes to Snow College. Anyway, Margot got to borrow her sister's Solara convertible and the boys thought that was pretty neat, especially Ben. :)

And here's me looking big and pregnant at 24 weeks (5 months-ish). I am happy, but I think my clothes are a bit baggy...hard to be fashionable right now!

"Good Morning" Ritual

For a long time the boys would come into our room when they woke up in the morning and insist on being in bed with us for some snuggle time. This cracks me up: check out the hair and the huge grins on these little boys' faces. Ben is pretty happy too. :)

This has never happened before: Garrett falling asleep during a meal! He didn't get a nap that day, and I warned Ben that I was afraid he'd need to go to bed extra early while I was at work. Garrett ended up sleeping in his chair for a few minutes and then Ben laid him on the couch for about a half hour. So funny! He actually almost fell asleep at the dinner table in Hawaii too...his naps were few and far between while we were there. We had to really watch him at that time because he could have just fallen right off the chair!
