The Skate Park

Now that Jon does not have to work Saturdays anymore, he has been taking the boys to the skate park for an hour or so on Saturday mornings. The kids love it! Today, neither Jon nor I had to work so we took them, the boys were excited to show me all the new tricks they had learned. Here are a couple shots.

Julien in action




Julien took a pretty hard fall trying a new hill. His bike is not a bike meant to do tricks, it is much too big and heavy for that kind of riding. But the boy lives with no injuries besides a few scrapes on his knees, and sore wrists.

Here are some videos I took of Julien and Logan at the park. In the second video, you can actually see Jon running off to help Julien up from his fall. Poor kid!

Snow on May 24th?


Yes, we definitely do live in Utah. One of the only places I know of on earth where the weather is so indecisive. I woke up this morning to quite a terrifying site; a thick blanket of snow outside my window. As a matter of fact, it had snowed so much that some of the branches of the trees in our apartment complex broke, and power was flickering on and of all morning.

And when I got back from work just a few hours later, the snow had all melted, and the sun was out and shining.
