Life Lately...

 Life around here lately has been pretty low-key.  Josh has been busy with school / life preparation, working hard and giving me and Maddie lots of play time together each day.  

We headed up to Park City last week over the long weekend.  It was such a fun, needed break for us.  I realized that I need to learn that Maddie will not only survive if we leave her somewhere overnight, but probably be in heaven staying with Grandmas (hello protective mom).  Needless to say, she ended up with us for the weekend and taught us that going out to eat peacefully as a family is next to impossible these days (we did some calculations and let's just say we figured it's going to be a while before we can have a melt-down free, clean floor, no spills family dinner).  Park City is a small piece of heaven.

In attempts to keep us in Provo on Sundays, we've been called to teach the four-year olds in our ward.  Josh is the hit of the class with his magic tie and card tricks (we get some teaching in) Four year olds have a lot of energy... Our first week teaching we got through everything we had prepared for a lesson within the first seven minutes.  

On my endless quest to find fun winter things to do with Maddie, we headed to the indoor pool for some February swimming.  It was probably the cutest thing I've ever seen and I've now been wondering why I haven't been doing this all winter.  She was in heaven the whole time and was totally worn out after.

 And a few more pictures just because I can't help myself.  

and p.s. - it looks like Brobee has become almost a member of the family
