We are in Utah now, at least for the next two months. We have had so much fun. We have been in real homes, backyards with soft grass, nature, and surrounded by family and friends.Two months is a long time, there is so much that we want to do and people we want to see that it will go so fast. Here are photos from our first weekend here.
That first day, Maggie probably spent more time outside than inside. We found some bikes in Grandma's shed and had fun trying to ride it. Poor Maggie. All her friends have bikes, but her legs are too short for her to really ride one. She tries so hard though.
Swings!!! It is the small things that bring so much joy, like swinging while waiting for dinner.
Cousins are the best. We had Laura's kids come over one afternoon while the canal was "turned on"? I don't quite understand how these irrigation ditches work except that a couple times a week, the back yard floods. It makes for great water fights.
Sam gets to play with a ton of new toys. This is definitely not helping with tummy time. Why struggle on your tummy when you can just sit up and play with all the toys? He is definitely related to Maggie-both had no desire to move.
Grandma Schwabadissen was in town when we were in Brigham City. You can't tell it from these photos, but both kids actually really liked her. Maggie would teach Grandma all about the different princesses. I love this lady so much and am glad that I can be a part of her family.
We are spending the first two weeks with Mike's sister, Allison. Talk about a girl's come true. They have multiple doll houses, dress up dresses, Fancy Nancy, Pinkalicious, Easy Reader Princess books, an amazing backyard, and the best cousins. Especially Tally. Tally is 9 years old and loves to play with Maggie and help take care of Sam. Joey and Emily have been so generous in letting us borrow their van for while we are here, since Mike will have the car to get to work.
Maggie loves temple. Allison loves just down the street from the Mt. Timpanogos temple. The kids enjoyed visiting it and learning more about them.
