Ryan's Weekend in Pictures..

Ryan joined the Utah climbing club this year and they go on some pretty sweet adventures. A couple of weekends ago, they set out to climb Mt. Whitney in California! This is the tallest mountain in the contiguous 48 States. 
We were in Mexico a couple of weeks ago, and after 4 days of being there, Ryan left to go to California while Ellie and I stayed in Mexico with the Copes.  I still think he was crazy for wanting to leave sunny Mexico to go ice climb a mountain. ;)

A couple of Ryan's good friends are in the club, which is sweet! He had a blast. He came home sore, tired, dirty, and brought back a little accessory in his finger...... (you will know what I am talking about by the end of the post. Yikes! )

Ryan & Steve

At the top!!

On their way home, they stopped by Death Valley - which is the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere!  So in 24 hours, these boys went from being at the tallest point in the contiguous 48 States, to the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere. What a trip!

Now for story time.... When Ryan and Steve were hiking down from the top of Mt. Whitney, Ryan was hiking along with his trekking poles, when all of a sudden it just broke and shattered in his hand! Pieces of the trekking pole went through Ryan's fingers!!!! AHHHH!!!
Can you believe this picture??? When this happened, they were about 4 miles from the bottom. They tried to yank it out, but it wouldn't budge. So this manly man had to hike the 4 miles with this in his finger until they reached the bottom and found pliers to pull it out. EEEEKK!!! I was freaking out when he sent me this picture. 
Let's just say that the legal department of the trekking pole company is sending him some sweet gear to make up for it, as well as pay for his tetanus shot. ;)  
I am glad that he made it back safe and sound! 
 Atleast he brought back a saweeeet battle wound story ;)

Our Mexican weekend in.. a video!

We were lucky enough to go to Cabo in Mexico with the Cope's during Spring Break! We look forward to this trip all year long... it is fun to spend time with family and especially with the little kiddos. Ellie and the twins had so much fun in the water this year! They were swimming around like little fishies. 

If anyone knows me, they know that I like to take pictures and videos. Of everything. 
 So, Instead of overloading you with hours of scrolling through pictures, I decided to put together a little video of our trip. I really like how it turned out!  Especially because we recently purchased the new GoPro camera and are obsessed with it! It takes such amazing videos with insane quality. So, to say that I had a little fun with our new toy, is an understatement.

Enjoy! -- note: tantrums, time-outs, 5:30am wakings, and the stressed mommy moments were NOT pictured in this video.  (not every moment of this trip was as perfect as this video portrays it to be. . . . but pretty darn close.)   ;)

March Sayings

March was a month that was filled with Ellie quotes! She is such a hilarious little girl with a BIG imagination. Seeing how much she has grown over the past couple of months just kills me. Where did my baby go?!?! Coming up on 4 1/2 years old. 

We randomly noticed that Ellie lost her first tooth and we asked her how it happened! She just shrugged her shoulders and said, "I don't know.... I was just eating lunch and it disappeared!!"

Ellie tried on the grass skirt that we got for her in Hawaii and she said, "I should show this to Cody (her cousin) and he will say 'hey girl. you look good.' "


At least 3 times a day, she grabs my face and nuzzles me into her face and says, "My precious Sweeeeetie"

"YOU'RE THE MEANEST ONE IN THE WHOLE HOUR!!!"     (notice the change from this quote and the last?   lol... oh the roller coasters. ;)

Ryan was gone hiking Mt. Timpanogos in the snow, and Ellie & I were looking up at the mountain from our house & talking about him being up there. Ellie turned to me and said, "I wish daddy would just use a ladder to climb it. A really really long ladder. Or next time he goes on the mountain, he could just take an airplane?"

While playing cards with her-- "Momma, can you please shovel the cards?"   (shuffle)

Ellie went to her cousin's baptism and came home and said, 
"That BATH-tizm was so cool!"

"Sloth" for Floss

"I'M TOTALLY GONNA FREAK OUT RIGHT NOW!"  (she says when she is excited about something)

"I pooped a family of poops!!  A baby poop, a momma poop, and a daddy poop!"

This one takes the cake in my opinion---
My sister-in-law was talking to Ellie and asking her if she knew what CTR meant. (Choose The Right)  and Ellie said "CHOOSE THE RIGHT!  ..... But.....sometimes.... my mommy chooses the Left."     ----bahahahha!! What does that even mean!?! I was in the room when she said it and I was dying. Sooo funny.

My Weekend in Pictures

This last weekend we went to our friend's cabin up Logan canyon in Utah.. it was a BLAST! 
Ryan, Ellie, & I had so much fun playing in the snow, sledding, making a snowman, and hanging out in the cozy cabin. Definitely need to make this a yearly tradition!
