We discovered a new donut shop while in Utah. All of the donuts are glazed, but they have really interesting and delicious frostings. It's too rich for Eddie. Here we are on our first trip. Of course we went back for more!
We visited my friend Amanda. Eddie and Peter got to play with Maddie and Kennedy on their slip and slide, and I got to meet baby Noah for the first time. When we went back a different day for Noah's blessing, Peter was disappointed that the slip and slide wasn't out. We had a lot of fun!
We met Ben's family at this really cool park. Unfortunately, I didn't get a lot of pictures. There was some water with ducks that the kids liked to chase. There were multiple play areas, one with a plastic dragon the kids could climb on. I enjoyed having my kids play without needing me to be with them.Blowing bubbles
Cousin Rayne. She turned two in May. She kept bringing me M&Ms to eat and would tell me each color as she gave them to me; I was impressed! We got to be good friends!
:) Peter and Eddie and Hunter, Ben's cousin's son.
Ben's cousin, Melody, and her baby Matthew. Me and Creegan. Ben's sister, JoAnna, and her baby Caius.
It was a fun day, and Peter wanted to go back to this park.
We took Trax to the Main Library. Eddie and Peter loved the train, but they were super nervous the door might close on them when getting on and off. They have the same concern about elevators. I learned Trax is really not worth it. It costs a lot of money if you aren't a student, and the ride is really slow!Sweet Pete!
Creegan fell asleep like this on the way!
I love these boys!
Isn't this a great picture? The wavy benches. I wish this library could be the library I go to every week!
It was super sunny!
I can't remember what Eddie was licking, but it was gross!
Taking every opportunity to play; Eddie and Peter wouldn't let him not play!
Grandma has a great yard. Eddie and Peter were in tears the first few days when I would suggest they go outside without shoes. You just do don't that in Florida-the grass really is painful here and there are so many little live things! Also, it's not so hot in Utah. In the morning and evenings, Eddie complained of being chilly! Peter being his silly self!
Peter was so great about pushing Creegan gently on the swing. My dad built this awesome swing. There are two seats, and the swing goes around in a circle, like the swings at amusement parks.
Eddie loves jumping on the trampoline, though he got nervous he would be shocked when getting off.
Creegs loved the swing.
Sitting with Grandpa, while the big kids played.
When we arrived in Utah, Tom thought he would never win over Eddie because Eddie loves his Grandma so much. Luckily Tom is fun and won Eddie and Peter over by playing hard. Now Tom is literally Eddie's best friend in the world, and Eddie misses him a lot. (So do I.)
Creegan's first experience sitting on grass. Look at that face!!!! I love it!
My dad found out after dipping Creegy in the pool just how cold it was! Sorry, Creegers!
Ben proposed to me with a song he wrote about making a beautiful life together. My life is more beautiful than I ever imagined it could be. This blog is a record of our beautiful children, Edison, Peter, and Creegan. Their growth, accomplishments, and personalities. "It's a beautiful life. We've made a beautiful life. We'll make a beautiful life."
