Better late than never!!

Walking to church..... the girls both wanted to push their strollers and before mom said "no".. dad said "yes ":) and it was raining... and they both wanted an umbrella but discovered that it was quite difficult to both push a stroller and hold a large umbrella ... so i guess that pretty much sums up the picture... cute little fam huh?!! ... oh also notice the very large "mom's purses" that were filled to the brim ... shawn has maddie's and mia's is dragging :) ha ha ! oh the memories we have walking to church....

the girls feel the need to "organize" my books off the book shelf... but somehow I am the one who always ends up finishing the job!!

we went to park city for thanksgiving and were able to spend some time with friends and family...

we stayed at the marriot with shawn's brother and his family.. the kids LOVED just hanging out together :)

and we forgot our bathing suits but were able to scrounge up a pair of shorts for shawn.. maddie's cousin brought two bikinis :), and we just threw mia in a swimmie... i was able to be the photographer and stay warm :)

after park city we headed to salt lake to the Peery Hotel. it was a really old hotel but had been re-done and it was sooo perfect for us!! our room was small and cozy with two rooms and was on the corner with two Huge windows.. one night we enjoyed lounging and watching a christmas movie while it snowed outside and we could see all the city christmas lights :) it was awesome!! side note: maddie would NOT get in the picture and Mia wasn't very happy either as you can see... oh well!

Little mia being a ham!!

i was able to meet up with my good friend Anna while we were up there... we had so much fun and the girls LOVED playing together!!! here we are at the childrens museum at the Gateway mall..

funny girls..

and the end of the trip :) they were EXHAUSTED from all the fun we had!!

You guys are good to walk to church, even in the rain!

I can't stop laughing at the walking to church picture, so cute! I'm so glad we could hang out while you were up here, oh I miss living by you!!! Addie came over to me this afternoon and said in her sad voice, "I miss Maddie", it was cute and sad. I hope you are not washing away with all the rain :)
