Do Books Taste Like Candy!?!

...You would think so the way Keilei eats them!

I thought that she would grow out of this after she went through her teething stage, yeah I was wrong! Keilei got this book from her doctor at her 2 year old check up. She loved the book. We read it almost every night. Although I don't know if she likes reading it or eating it better?!

Keilei is going to give us a tour of how worn out this 5 month old book is and how it got that way...
"Mama it's ruined see..."

It is yummy, I like to eat it like this

Show Mama....

This is her favorite page to show me and tell me it is ruined

Look how LOVED this book is

And it must run in the family because
Like Sister, like Brother!

Memorial Day

We went to visit Spencer's grave in the Logan Cemetary today as a family. Some of my family didn't feel like going, because they didn't want to be sad, at least that is how my nephew Keenan put it. Keenan is Spencer's son. And like others they like to visit his grave by themselves and not in big groups. Which is totally understandable.
After we took a few pictures and took turns chasing down my daughter we went to the fire station. Sean was working so we got to see him and show the kids the fire trucks.

This is my sister Kristi and her family with my Mom & Dad. They are down here from Alaska for a few weeks visiting. They also came so they could go to Jeff's wedding. Yes the little blond kid is a boy! Peter is Samoan and they let their hair grow out and they just put it in a pony tail, that is why it has never been cut. Although you would never guess that little Cole is half Samoan, he looks more Albino. He is four months younger then Keilei.

My Dad and Rush. Aren't they so cute! Rush gets his middle name Ellsworth from my Dad. It is his middle name.

This is her angry face. She usually folds her arms too, or puts her hands on her hips. She was mad because I wouldn't let her climb around in the truck

Keilei would not look at me for anything.

Sean's Bike Trip

Sean went down to Southern Utah last week for a few days to going biking with his brother and friends. He left Wednesday May19 and met up with Matt Frentheway and then drove the rest of the way down there together. They met up with Sean's older brother Ryan, Guy Crandall, and Shawn Tringham in Bryce National Park. They stayed there a couple days and then went to Zion's National Park for a couple days.
Sean said the first trail they did in Bryce was one of the best trails he had ever done. He had a good time. They also did the Angel's landing hike in Zion's. Unfortunately they didn't get to hike in any of the slot canyons because of the spring run off. They would have loved it, I know I did!
I was so jealous the whole time Sean was gone. Not that I like mountain biking but I love to hike and see those beautiful places!
Sean & I where talking about how Bryce and Zion's are two places that I have been that Sean hasn't. The only other place is Yellowstone and the Teton's. It is usually me saying "I wish I could go there", or "I want to go there" and Sean ALWAYS replies with "I've been there!"....Man I wish!!!
The first group of pictures is of angels landing. It is an AMAZING hike with a killer view. I went there and did it before my mission. Although it kicked my butt and Sean said he wanted to run most of the way...stupid super fit people:) Sean said that his brother and Matt didn't go up the last part of the hike cause they where afraid of heights which I thought was hilarious! The end is the best part of the hike! But it is definitely not for people who are afraid of heights.

If you look really closely you can see people hiking, the trail goes along the ridge

The last part of the hike they have a chain for you to hold on to

Some of the gorgeous views

Isn't this one of the most beautiful places ever
I stole these next pictures from Sister in law Nichole's blog (Ryan's wife) cause Sean didn't take any that day. Thanks Nichole!:)

This is where they stayed the first two nights, at a KOA campground outside of Bryce
These next pictures are in Bryce.
