Here it is, almost three weeks later and I still haven't updated my blog. I guess it is because I don't want to bore anyone, there really isn't much to tell. We have been having a lot of winter weather which just depresses me. The only good thing about the cold is that this time there is actually snow too. We have had one of the coldest winters on record but also one of the driest, it is just plain sad. We had enough snow to go sledding a couple of times with the kids. The school I taught at a few years ago has some great hills behind it perfect for seldding so we hiked up there the Monday of President's Day weekend then again that following Saturday. Now everytime it snows the kids think we need to go sledding. They were so awesome at it. Cassidy wanted to go by herself and loved it after she did and Zack started down on his own when he was just sitting on a sled and screamed all the way down. When he got to the bottom though he was so excited he only wanted to go by himself. It was so funny. The pictures are of Rex and Linda's (Jason's dad and step-mom) visit with us over President's Day weekend. It got up to 60 degrees while they were here then snowed the day they left. Anyways, we went to a place in Lehi called Thanksgiving Point with them. We saw an Imax 3-D movie about African animals then went to a farm that they have there to pet and feed some animals. They had a life-sized plastic cow with rubber nipples that you could try to milk. All of us tried but the only one that could actually milk the cow was Rex, I guess all that time on the dairy in Rexburg paid off. We had to go to Cabella's because we were in the area where it is located. It is like a landmark in Utah now. We also took them to a Japanese steakhouse called Tepanyaki. It is my favorite place to eat because everything is so fresh and good for you. They cook your food on a grill right in front of you and always put on a good show. In fact it was the first time we have taken the kids there, and Zack was in tears at the display of fire the chef did at the beginning then was fasinated the rest of the time. He kept asking if there was going to be more fire and telling the chef he was a good "maker". So funny! We played outside an afternoon because the weather was so beautiful. We jumped on the tramp, played soccer and a game that Rex and Linda made Jason for his birthday. I can't remember what it is called but it is the funnest yard game ever, so addicting. Anyways, nothing much exciting since then. Just the daily grind. I am so looking forward to a weekend and hope everyone has a great one.
My family lives in Northern Utah and keep very busy. My husband works as a Computer Specialist and I am a fifth grade teacher. We have two children, Cassidy and Zack. Cassidy is eleven years old and in the sixth grade. She loves the Disney Channel, playing soccer, drawing pictures, and designing clothes. Zack is eight years old and in third grade. He enjoys superhereos, playing with friends, and riding his bike. We love living in Utah because of the beautiful weather and all there is to do both inside and out.
