Farm life is awesome. Kids don't get tired of it till they are at least 14.
Sheep huh? Must be south of Provo. We have family in Sanpete county.

Julie said...

Our babies share a vocabulary.

Melanie J said...

Seriously, why do kids think work is fun at OTHER people's houses but not their own? Huh?

Tobi said...

Sounds like so much fun! I love your nicknames for your kids. Especially Mr. Squishy. =)

Lara said...

I remember the 12 hour drives from Phoenix to Utah Valley. Fun stuff. :)

Sounds like a wonderful weekend!

Harmony said...

First of all, I'm so sad the name Mr. Squishy is already taken, because I'd like to use it for my son someday.


Thirdly, that picture of Mr. Squishy REALLY made me want to squish him (in a loving adorable-baby-squoosh-kind-of-way)

Kimberly said...

I love the "Uncle Brian" answer - totally made me giggle!

Deb said...

Love it! Thanks for sharing!

Kazzy said...

Don't you just love little getaways? Where in Utah were you? If you say my town I am gonna get very upset. :)

Katy said...

Um, how the heck do you get a zillion comments for each post? Oh right, it's cuz your blog is the coolest blog EVER. Jealous. :)

And in answer to your question, I haven't finished Catching Fire yet! Doh! But so far it's freaking INTENSE. SO good. I'll let you know what I think when I finish it...sometime...hopefully soon.

Tamra Watson said...

Sniff, Sniff...go and make me homesick why don't you :). Tell LP I want to go move pipes too!

susan said...

I moved sprinkler pipes this summer, very good exercise.

MS gives has the most insightful answers.

And, look at you all Barbara Walters, getting right to the heart of what your audience was dying to know and squeezing out a tender tear or two.

LisAway said...

That's not very many words, but it sure tells a lot about your kids. Cute.

Rocketgirl said...

Hahahaha - I want to go play on Uncle Brian now too!

(I do NOT mean that the way it sounds...!)
