At the beginning of the week we went on a little family hike so we could see all the changing colors. Wow. It was incredible. I know I've seen it before, but it really amazes me each time.
When being a mom seems frustrating and the tasks feel mundane, I like to remind myself that being a mom is really like being a tour guide. I get to show my boys everything for the first time. Then motherhood seems like a fun privilege. When I see this picture I just think...welcome to your world, little boy. It's bigger and deeper than you can ever imagine.
On a funnier note, I introduced Rex and Baden to the movie "Tangled" a few weeks ago. Rex doesn't like anything to do with princesses, so I had to emphasize the whole prince and fighting knights part. Anyhow, he's been working on his "smoulder." What do you think? Creepy or cute? I can't tell :)
And lastly, when I got lunch with my sisters the other day we went to one of my favorite places - the Rusted Sun Pizzeria in Salt Lake. It's a tiny little place with the most amazing calzones. We celebrated the fact that my sister Cassie (the one whose home you saw remodeled) found out she's having a GIRL. She has two boys like me, so this was "shopping news."
It's been a good, busy week. Tomorrow I'm going to show you Rex's completed costume. He's pretty excited....and so am I.
Thank you for reading.
