A Few Warm Winter Days

Hehe. I got a wall-mount makeup mirror and really really love the light on it! Also makes getting ready in the morning so much nicer, not having to lean way over the counter anymore.

Back on the horse! After a couple of nasty falls last year, Logan refused to ride his bike again. Today, I convinced him that Daddy had "fixed" his bike over the winter so it wouldn't fall anymore. Like magic, he's pedaling fast and enjoying riding again!

Courtney & Spencer are married! They got the most perfect day for a February wedding and Rob and I were so excited to be a part of it. (Doubly for me, since I was photographer too!)

Five day old adorableness at preschool.

Treasure hunting at the library!

Putting lego in a heavy sleeper's nose.

Firsts: Geocaching 2017 & Logan's ER Visit

First treasure hunt of 2017! Perfect day for geocaching at Dripping Rock in SF. Quite a haul too. Hunted for 5 caches, found three, one DNF, and one probably destroyed.

Before the fall: We had a fun afternoon with our friends, geocaching part of the way up West Mountain! A few more Saturdays and maybe we'll be able to find all 40ish caches on it!

So many fun finds and not too cold!

A lot of Cubs fans on that mountain.

And then.....

An abrupt end to the afternoon. He slipped off a rock and fell onto a razor sharp rock edge. It wasn't a hard or fast fall, just enough to slice right through. The only clean thing we had was a pair of underpants to put on the wound while we drove home to assess the damage. 3 centimeters.

Off to the ER we went. Thankful for modern medicine. Cut all the way to the skull (no bone damage, thankfully).

Six staples and a new friend to cuddle. They also let him take the staple gun home, haha.

It was a long night.... I kept checking on him and didn't fall into a deep sleep until he woke for the morning and Rob took care of him. Woke later to some very fuzzy cuddles.

All is well. He slept normally, woke early as usual, and acted like himself. We took it easy for a couple of days, trying to keep him calm so he can heal. He's our happy boy though, and loves his alpaca the hospital gave him, now named McCloud.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I couldn't help myself, had to do it again.

We love Logan's teacher!

You'd think I'd have already bought some iPhone lenses but I guess it wasn't a high priority. Got a set at the expo though and they're pretty fun. 😎

#noshameparenting This is what a 4+ hour bath looks like. 😂😳😬😅

First warm day in a while, and all he does is sleep.

WPPI 2017

Hey Vegas!

Party time!

Legit. I learned SO much this week, and am so excited to implement it all into my work!

Las Vegas nights

Confession: First time this stick in the mud has EVER been to a club. Loved it, but someone shoot me next time I try to wear heels dancing. 😣

Trevor Dayley immediately became my favorite presenter when he started showing cat videos. 😂

Last day at the expo and photographer's Cards Against Humanity! Eeeee!

Trying to do push-ups while someone is feeling starved for attention.

Rob printed a new toy for Logan.

Had to visit BYU for something today. As we were walking around, I realized all of us have hairstyles that violate honor code. 😂 #freakshow

The things we do when it's cold outside....

A little visit out to the lake.

Ice Flowers at Utah Lake

The lake was finally frozen over! Just in time to warm up and melt this week. 😉

Some of the more tightly growing flowers.

It was just a huge field of them.

We found fishing holes out on the ice!

Digging in for Winter

Winter blues have set in. Not too bad, but I'm ready for hiking and swimming again.

Punk cat snuck into the furnace room and started helping himself to the big bag of cat food.

Me: "Oh did you build a giraffe?"
L: "Yeah, and with a pirate hat!"

I'm finally going to admit it, I got sucked in. Thanks to Macall, I'm totally obsessed with Lipsense now. I'm not a huge fan of the mlm sales model, but after a few months of using Lipsense, I adore it. This is coming from the girl who's never liked wearing anything stronger than a tinted lip gloss. And now she's got me wearing this dark (to me) color and I adore it!

Sunday naps

The last day of Tiny Tots sports camp. He loved it so much, I decided to do another month of it!

No shame.

Confession: I ❤️❤️❤️❤️ having a DI in Springville! I go about every week or two and *always* find clothes for Logan. His closet is filling, haha. Today, I picked up a brand new office chair for the desk Rob built (from scratch) last week!

Rob printed a new toy for Logan.

Inside Fun

Kiddo loves the library!

He thinks he knows how to play chess now. Hahahaha

Costco size bag of veggie straws and a movie.
