Saturday at the Park

This is what happens when you're really cute and your dad is an awesome photographer.

Poor kid.  Totally bundled and still trying to strike a pose.

Cute.  Nothing else to say about that.

Great trip.  Would do it again in a heartbeat.  Fantastic people.  Cool idea.  Fun activities.  Love it!

Couch Surfing and Yurting

Hi all!

I'm going to write this up while entertaining Sage at the same time.  We'll see how successful I can be.

So, we offically moved out of our apartment on Dec 31.  Since then, we have been staying with my parents in Spanish Fork Canyon.  Until yesterday, then we moved all our junk (well, not ALL, we have a whole storage unit full of stuff) to Steve's parents' house in Provo.  We're so grateful for our families.

Last Saturday, we did venture out with the Francis clan and the Babcock clan, and stayed overnight in a yurt at Rockport State Park.  I'd never even heard of Rockport, but Julie found it.  It's east of Park City by about 20 minutes or so.  The snow wasn't amazing, but I don't think it is anywhere in the state.  But, we got in two snowshoeing hikes.  The best part of snowshoeing was testing out my newest DIY project.  A homemade ski conversion kit for our Chariot stroller.  I saved us about $215 by doing it homemade style.  It still needs some tuning, but overall, it skied well, even handled some mildly rocky terrain (with some help).  No photos yet. 

The house we want to buy is starting to be built.  They poured the foundation/basement.  We're still doing paperwork, so can't say it's ours' yet.  I'll post photos when it's official.  

Ok, Sage meltdown has begun. Adios!
