2009 started out better than ever! We spent the New Year down in SLC. Hillary and Jason invited us over for the evening. Heidi and the kids were there along with Jason's brother Kevin. I was really excited because Mark was cooking steaks for everyone. Mark's cooking is AMAZING!!! Everyone seemed to enjoy the meal. Mark was quite pleased! Sawyer took a tub with Jr and Grace and loved every minute. He has so much fun playing with his cousins. We headed back to Grandma's house about 10:30pm. Sawyer stayed awake anticipating the ball drop, but shut his eyes around 11:30pm. Maybe next year he will make it! Mark and I watched the rest of the Countdown to the New Year then went to bed. It was a wonderful evening.
On Friday Heather called with some fantastic news. Her family was going to Lava Hot Springs and wanted to come play at the gym for a while. We were so excited! It's not very often that we have family come to visit. Heather and Mica brought the kids to the gym on Saturday for a couple hours. Hunter was doing awesome double fronts off the tramp into the pit. Bailey was jumping and sliding down the ramps like crazy! Brooke kept doing back handsprings. She should be doing them by herself in no time. Chase was so funny on the zip line. I wish we had him on video. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I can't wait for them to come play again.
Nope, that's not the end of week. We had another visitor! Yes its true! Jake flew in from Minneapolis for a couple days. Sawyer loves him! It was so funny watching them play. They had a true connection from the beginning. Sawyer wouldn't leave him alone. Thanks for playing Jake! Thanks everyone for getting our New Year off to a great start. We love you all and wish the best for the New Year.
Tubbie time with Jr and Grace
