A Sad Day at the Doctors...

Bridger has a new dislike....
having his clothes off!
That makes getting weighed and being examined by the doctor
a very difficult task.

Here are his 2 year old stats,

weight: 38 lbs 14 oz (99.74%)
height: 37.88 inches (99.44%)

WOWZERS..... I know

Dealing with his 1 and only shot!!! :(

just some cute pictures....

I love the rare mornings when there is nothing going on and no places to be :)

St. George Half Marathon

Friday we headed to St. George so that Scott and I could run in the
St. George Half Marathon.
Like always I was nervous for all kinds of reasons....
I didn't know the course,
I had no idea what the weather would be like,
I hadn't trained very well.... and Scott hadn't trained at all!
But it went great!
The weather was perfect... about 50 degrees,
& the course was a good mixture of up and down hill.
I got my best time ever...
in running lingo that would be me setting a "PR" (personal record) :)

We also had fun just hanging in St. George with
my dad & McKenzie and Scott's parents.
The boys spent a lot of time in the Hot Tub, running around and
eating about 1 million Popsicles!
(I am certain that Dakota's poop is now permanently bright green!)
We also went to Lunch with everyone at Cafe Rio and then to an
Animal Museum.

Everyone had fun on our short weekend trip!

a little Eye Candy

There really hasn't been anything blog worthy this week in our lives,
but I came upon this picture that Scott took right before Christmas on a duck hunting trip.
There are just some things that have to be shown to the world...
and this picture is one of them :)

Park City Tubing

On Saturday we took the boys and met up with my dad and brothers
at this tubing place at the top of Parley's Cannon.
We lucked out and it was really warm.
Dakota of course had so, so much fun.
Bridger was too little to go on the main runs.... they base it on age,
which in Bridger's case is kind of dumb, due to the fact that he was a lot bigger than a lot of the 3 and 4 years olds I saw!
So me and Scott just switched off playing with Bridger and
going down the runs with Dakota.
I was so surprised how fast you can go on some of the bigger runs. I was actually a little bit scared. Dakota just giggled the whole way down.

Before we headed home we took the boys to Cafe Rio.... Dakota is constantly begging for tortillas and ranch. It was probably our most successful restaurant outing ever with the boys. They must have been completely worn out, because we all just sat and ate in complete silence. It was awesome!

Party Time!!!

We celebrated Bridger's Birthday on Monday night.
Having a birthday right after Christmas makes thinking of a gift a little bit hard, but we decided on a kitchen.... a very manly looking kitchen I might add.
He loved it and also loved the Tickle Me Elmo that my mom got him.
He was most interested in the cupcakes and blowing out his candles....
I had to relight them at least 5 times while we sang happy birthday to him.

Yesterday for Bridger's "actual birthday",
we met friends for lunch at McDonalds,
and then while Dakota was at school just me and Bridger went to
the Dinosaur Museum.
It was so nice to be able to let him run around and not having my attention be spread between 2 kids.
When we picked Dakota up from school,
he asked why Bridger had a new dinosaur?
I told him that Bridger got to go on a date with mom for his birthday and when he has his again I will take him on a special date.
Dakota said, "that is weird mom, not say that again!!!"
Apparently, even at the age of 5, it is not cool to hang with mom :(

Dear Bridger,

You are no doubt the biggest handful,
and it is shocking what can happen when you are left alone for even a minute....
but your smile and your laugh make up for all of it!!!
We love you so much,

Happy Birthday

Jackson Hole, WY

Scott and I had so much fun last week in Jackson Hole,
it was hard to leave!
We were able to go skiing, on a sleigh ride, shopping, to the movies
and best of all...
just relax!!!!
It was a much needed and much enjoyed get away.

Scott went out for some hard core skiing in the morning and then came back to get me for the second half of the day. The mountains were huge and the snow was great!

I love these arches made out of antlers...
we have seen them before, but they were extra cool with the lights.

We stayed in these little cabins....

This exercise area was my favorite part of the hotel.
It was so much more fun to work out when you could just watch the snow fall.

We went on a sleigh ride through the Elk Refuge,
I have never seen so many bull elk before.
And because they are used to the sleighs, we were able to get really close.

This was the temperature when we left.....
seriously cold!!!!
