Our trip here has been so much fun, coming to Utah always feels exhausting to be honest. We are always going so fast. I’ve gotten better at trying to slow things down, but not quite well enough yet. Mr Finn is going to be so disheartened when we go back home. He is on cloud 9 here. He loves being with his Gigi, playing in the gym, going to ride the horse at Provo Beach. All the things we do here regularly. The weather has been beautiful. We have a lot of fun going and getting dinner together and enjoying the cool Utah evenings. Mason is great at always playing with my boys. Thank you, thank you!
Eating dinner at Bajio last night.
Caught, red handed. Mr Finn snuck this toy out of Blickenstaffs the toy store. He almost made it all the way to the car when we noticed the site above. He told me on the way home, ‘But Mom, picking out a new toy is so much fun.’ King James is really coming to life. When I put the boys down to bed at night my mom and dad will take Royal James, and every night my mom says I walk away and he turns into tiger man. Extremely upset. He loves watching the Bee movie. My parents will just hold him up to watch all the colors and he stops screaming. Cheri, we’ll have to remember that for when he gets upset. He loves him mom 🙂
Go, Gigi, Go! My mom has been transitioning the house to give it a more contemporary look – put in some new floors and is having the family room painted. She really can get stuff done. It’s impressive. Provo Beach was a blast, like always. I needed this fun outing. Jude has not quite been his best self to say the least. He’s coming out of it, but goodness gracious. My brother Tanner left me a nice note this morning, it started something along the lines of, ‘Just laying in bed it’s 11 o’clock here and I can hear the boys screaming and your patient voice. You inspire me with your kindness and energy’. It made my day, really. It brightened my spirits. After being at my house for a few days he has gotten a feel of my life, and being here Jude has been off his game. It was kind of him.
The colors looked weird in this photo – thus the B&W. Finn’s hair! Oh my! Jude cut his chin pretty bad flying out of the slide face first at the park. Tonight I actually had success putting the boys to sleep because I let them do an extra hour running around the gym before bed. Watching the Bee Movie, while I put the boys the bed. Sometimes I look at Royal and think to myself… hmmmmm I wonder what trouble you’ll be causing me young one. Jude had fun looking at Gigi’s interior design magazines. Finally, night time. Quick favorite moment from the day – we ate at Malawis tonight, this pizza and pasta place. They have this gluten free fusili pasta and gluten free red sauce and Jude loved it. He ate so much. All of the sudden at dinner we looked over and he was slumped in his high chair covered with red sauce all over his face and sweater. He literally looked like he was about to unleash a large burp. The site literally brought a hysterical laugh out of my mouth. It was great.
