Did you know that many of Utah’s museums are FREE on the first Monday of the month? It’s true! Usually, we stay home on Mondays and catch up after the weekend. I try to never make doctor appointments on Monday-- too many people try to 'wait out' the weekend and then call in to the doctor on Monday. This is an exception to the 'stay home on Monday' rule. We will be choosing a different museum to go to every month. It is a great field trip for the kids and exciting to see something new. What is your favorite museum?

Sunday Song: Over the Rainbow

This Sunday Song is for a special friend, Monica. She has been my friend for many years. Monica blogs about her family at Monica the Mighty Read her there and be warned: whether you are laughing so hard you are crying or crying so hard your heart breaks, you'll need tissues.
This song, Over the Rainbow, is for Monica's angel daughter, Taleah. I remember Taleah. Hugs~

Long time, no see

It has been a while... Life has been crazy. I'm going to try to catch you up on the important things over the next week.
Remember my post about the Ragnar Race my son ran? How I told myself I couldn't do it? Last week I was visiting with a neighbor who told me she had signed up to have a team at the 2011 Ragnar Race. She had most of the team spots open. So I signed up! I gave her a check the next day. (Oh, I just realized she hasn't cashed that check yet... I'd better balance my checkbook soon. It isn't cheap to run the Ragnar!) Anyway, I've started training already, though it just might kill me. I dusted off the treadmill, which hasn't been used much since Jared ran the Ragnar. I ignored the backpack full of weights that he would wear while running on the treadmill... I was lucky to survive the 15 minutes of running without passing out.
My neighbor ran the Ragnar with friends this year. Their team name was Fat kids win at teeter totter... I'll let you know as soon as I know what our team name will be this year!

busy moms

Wow, this week has been incredibly busy... so busy. I'll tell you about it... just as soon as I have a minute. I'm running out the door (again). Until then, read Sherri Dew's article: Are we not all Mothers?

Sunday Song: If the Savior Stood Beside Me

Our Sunday Song is If the Savior Stood Beside Me 
This was chosen because of a particularly difficult discussion I had this week. We need to be very careful about the things we say and do. Too often our words and actions can be hurtful... If the Savior stood beside me, would I do the things I do?

Ogden City Parks

Kids bored? Need something to do that doesn't cost money? Did you know Ogden has 40 parks and playgrounds? We've had fun exploring parks we haven't been to before and revisiting some we have. These pictures are from Bues Pond Park. The playground isn't great and has no shade, but the trail around the pond is fun to walk. There is a sign saying not to feed bread to the ducks (because seagulls will attack the baby ducks to get the bread).
