Welcome to my blog!

My super awesome husband gave me a super fabulous camera a few years back and I've been hopelessly obsessed and have driven my children crazy with, "look at Mommy" and "you can have a piece of candy if you let me take 5 pictures", ever since. Here are just a few of those moments I steel away from my uber cute kiddos, and a few more moments I occasionaly get to take of other people...to the relief of my family. I do love to practice on anyone who will let me, so if you would like your picture taken let me know!

Our Trip, Day 2, Stop 2

I forget the name of this place. Something about Heritage or something. So I call it Pioneer Village. I think it's so awesome they were able to take all these amazing pioneer era buildings and move them all to one fantastic place. The kids loved it too.

We first stopped in on a small one room cabin that housed a family of 10! That's right people. One room. Ten people. Someone told us the size of the homes didn't necessarily depend on ones income, but the amount of lumber available in the area.

The kids learned about laundry, pre washing machines.

I somehow only took pictures of them washing and blinking.

The kids in this family of ten slept in the loft. They had to go outside and up the ladder to get there.

And of course they didn't have indoor bathrooms, which Jared really loved. He wanted to use the outhouse so bad! Silly kid wants to use any public bathroom he passes.

And here we are on the steps of the church/schoolhouse.

Upstairs had a benches and a stage.

Downstairs was the school room.

There is a "train" you can ride around the town, see some cool buildings, and learn a little history along the way. They kids loved the ride. I did too.

The kids and their poor chapped lips. Utah always does that to them.

Abby had chapped cheeks, but Photoshop worked its magic on them.

And this adorable little nugget is six months old today. Not the day of this photo, but the day I'm typing this. Six months! Can't believe it.

And our last stop of the day. We learned how wool goes from sheep to clothes. Jared was looking forward to this all day. He barley made the age cutoff for carding (combing) the wool, so he was a happy boy.

I loved this place. It's always entertaining learning a little bit about history.
