When we got to Goblin Valley, my kids were a little bit surprised in the best sort of way. They love to climb, ever single one of them, and so this place is a bit like heaven. They could climb and wander and not get in trouble for it. I love this place too. I… Continue reading Goblin Valley
We live in the desert (if I ever spell that like dessert, please know it is just wishful thinking because I would much rather a dessert than a desert). And sometimes we need a change of scenery. So we went on a drive the other day. I don't usually like going on drives because I… Continue reading up a mountain
We went on a short hike the other evening. Our cat sometimes will follow us when we walk. you can notice her in the pictures below. We hiked to see some potholes. There were quite a few creatures swimming in them. I'm sort of amazed by potholes--out in the middle of the dessert, where it… Continue reading Puddles
Sometimes my kids take my phone. And they can take pictures without unlocking my phone. And it's fun to see what I get. P.S.: My phone obviously does not have a very good camera. That is fine, since my phone seems to break a lot.
On a trip up north recently, we discovered some really fun parks. I think parks used to be really fun, with old metal structures and completely dangerous ideas like merry-go-rounds and hamster wheels, and then they got really safe and while I was a child, and they weren't that fun--mostly just ladders, stairs, slides, and… Continue reading Parks
I love these kids. I love to see them smile. I try to take pictures of them, but I'm usually sort of informal about it. And that's okay. They only really need a few of their childhood anyway. And most of this time will be forgotten. And that's okay. I can have joy in their… Continue reading My kids
We have gone on this hike before, but my sister wanted to come after seeing pictures of it. So we went. It was wonderful. I love hiking to good places, and this little pool with the waterfall is the perfect sort of hike. It's only about a mile up there, which is great with young… Continue reading Left Hand
They had a youth track meet. My kids participated. They got medals in events where not a lot of people signed up. They were both on the very low-end of their age groups, and so they were a bit behind, but they had a lot of fun and learned some new stuff. We went to… Continue reading random fun things we have done

Mornings: Supergirl: Chocolate: Playing in the sandbox: Playing with legos: Drinking milk: Sleeping in with her new favorite blanket: Sundays: This is a common look for our house: Playing together: Crying: Wrestling: I am on my… Continue reading misc.
We were in charge of my husband's family reunion this year. We did it my parents' house while my parents were out of town. That may be slightly confusing. It was a little weird for me, but it worked out great. We ate good food, visited with each other, played volleyball and other games, etc.… Continue reading family reunion
