Snow Fun

We had a wonderful trip up to the family cabin in Island Park, ID. We went last weekend, so I apologize for the delay in my post. After the trip up there, Yale and I hung out with my mom for a few days before heading back home. (Lish had to be back to work.) That's my excuse for the delay. Though it's just that, an excuse.

Anywho, we had a wonderful time. (Although for those family member who weren't there, it wasn't that fun...) We loved getting to spend time with the family, go snowmobiling, sledding, eating, laughing until our tummies ached, and on and on. I'm so glad Yale could finally have his first cabin experience!

And after the cabin trip, Yale and I had a great time hanging out with my mom. We got to spend more time with my sister, Courtney, went to lunch with my dad, visited with one of my dear friends, Jill, and of course spent lots of quality time with my mamasita.

Five a Day

Lish has been getting after me for not posting on the blog. When Lish starts getting after me, that's when I know it's been a long time.

I haven't posted because we haven't had too much going on around here. We've just been enjoying our quiet life down here in SG since we got home from our busy Christmas break. I feel like we've finally gotten into a routine. Yale and I are starting to go out more and have more play dates. Lish is in a good flow with his work. Plus, the house stays clean for the most part. So really, life is pretty good.

Let's see. A couple weeks ago, Maggie invited me and Lish, along with some other family members and friends, to participate in a fitness challenge with her. We started last Monday. The rules are: eat 5 fruits and veggies a day, drink 64 oz of water, take a vitamin daily, exercise for at least 30 minutes a day (except one rest day), no eating after 8pm, and no sweets (except for one free day). Last week Lish and I both did really well. We'll see about this week. It'll be good challenge though. My sweet tooth was getting a little out of hand. And I used to think eating five fruits and veggies a day would be really hard. Guess what? It's not.

We've also been out hiking again. We're all set up to go camping at Zion's over spring break, so we're practicing with Lish carrying Yale and Yale staying in the backpack. Maybe I've already mentioned that. I don't remember.

Yale continues to be a hoot. (Yes, I said "hoot.") It's so fun to see things click with him, to see him begin to understand things. I just wish he understood that we don't want him playing in Jazz's food or water.

Anyway, happy Valentine's Day everybody!
And enjoy some pictures we have taken during our blogging absence.
