13 Weeks of Fun: Week 1

Hogle Zoo
It was hot and crowded the day we went to Hogle Zoo, but we had a blast!  And yes, the child leash (a.k.a. the child safety tether) does make another appearance. :)
 That's my mom, my dad, Robbie, our family friend Mykah, and Jaden.  Mykah and Jaden are the best of friends!

 Mykah insisted helping push Jaden's stroller up the hill. :)

 So Mykah started to love having her picture taken, so she posed on everything she could find, even if it was never meant to be posed with...

 Jaden found this Beanie Baby Snake that he has been quite attached to.  That snake got dragged all over that zoo that day!

It was so much fun!  Jaden's favorite part by far was when you could watch the sea lions underwater.  We ran around that building for almost half an hour.  I can't wait for the aquarium week!

13 Weeks of Fun: Week 0

Now that I am living at home, I thought it was a good time to make some fun memories with my youngest brothers.  So I came up with the 13 Weeks of Fun!  We brainstormed and thought of all of the fun things to do in Utah (came up with about 30 of them) and then everyone in the family got to pick their top 10.  From that, we compiled the most popular 13 things and decided to do one a week for the whole summer.  Our first week turned out to be unplanned as Hana was coming to visit and wanted to hike to Timpanogos Caves.  So we got tickets and hiked on up.  Some people, like Jake, blazed on up the trail with a Jaden on his back (literally), while other people, like me, just kept praying that I could put one more foot in front of the other without dying.  But we had a blast in the end!  And since this wasn't on our original 13 week roster, and it happened before the boys were out of school, we will call it Week 0.

 Yes, that is a leash on my child.  You take my stealthy, silent, fast, and fearless child up to the top of a mountain with a cliff edge and then judge me.

Thanks Hana for such a great idea and a fantastic way to kick off Summer 2013!
