There was a single's ward group up at the top when we got there and there were also a few dogs, Logan got to feed this dog a treat, it was really cute. He loved being up in the mountains. It did get pretty chilly up there and the wind started blowing. We were up there for the sunset, so it was later in the evening.
On Wednesday we did some running around and we stopped at the zoo really quick to get a zoo pass which I'm totally stoked for, so if anyone wants to go to the zoo, give me a shout, I'm really excited to go at alot this next year and get my money's worth on the pass :) We also stopped at "This is the Place Monument" (photo above of Logan pointing to the "the place")
I really liked going to these monuments and places with my family this week (yes that includes Ashley and Sam too ;) it really made me appreciate Utah even more and get me more excited to go out and do things and learn more about the wonderful things we have around us.
After the monument we went to Cafe Rio for dinner and went up Big Cottonwood Canyon and had a picnic. We all loved it. It was beautiful weather, a little chilly towards the evening, but it was so peaceful and wonderful to be up in the mountains, I'm looking forward to more picnics up the canyon this summer.
On Thursday we went to IKEA, a store I am deathly afraid of after going once when it first opened. I don't like big crowds, and it was packed and confusing, and I'm not a shopper by nature. But it was actually really fun and I even ended up getting some awesome kids' kitchenware that I love. We met up with my sister in law and went through the store and then stayed for lunch at the restaurant which was really good. After naptime with the boys we went up to Gateway Mall to see the fountains and to our dismay (and after 1 Hr 30 Minutes of thinking we had missed the show 3 times) they weren't doing the water show with the music because of some other dance recitals going on there. It was a little disappointing, but still fun to walk around until Logan got a little out of control.
Damon is soo happy when he wakes up from naps or in the morning, he gets this really big grin in his face and his whole body just wiggles with excitement as you cross the room to get him.Logan loves getting in the crib and playing with the music maker, Damon, and the window...pretty much in that order too. :) He's getting better at not squishing him when he climbs in. Sometimes when Damon is napping, Logan really wants to see him and will cry by the door saying, Damon sleeping, Damon sleeping, sad, but cute, since I have to make him wait until Damon wakes up to play.This is Logan with his new magnet car book that we got for a good deal at Deseret Book. I know why I'm not a good "shopper." I feel like if I go into a store I have to buy something and I can't "just look" so Logan and Damon ended up with some goodies this week from all our shopping. :)I know he looks mad/slightly crazy, but he was really excited to have all the Disney stickers on him and was walking around the house admiring himself.As we were leaving the house to go up to Grandma's for a little bit on Saturday we found Damon munching on something, I thought it was some jam that I had spilled on the floor, but he had actually found a blackberry on the floor and was doing a pretty good job of eating it. Damon loves food, and for that I am grateful.
Well, it's been real, it's been fun, and it's been real fun, but I'm exhausted, so I think I'm going to go take a nap. :) Until next time...
