What Not To Do With A Deer

Thanksgiving was great and we had lots of fun, which I will post about soon, but for now I will just post this.

The result of an impact with a deer

Luckily only the car and the deer were injured and since it happened about 200 miles from home we were grateful the car was drivable.

Welcome Cousin S

The boys have many cousins on my side of the family, but none on Steve's side, until now. Cousin S came 9 days early and my sister-in-law had the easiest of deliveries. No fair! Cousin S is a beautiful boy and my boys are excited to have another cousin.

Just hours old. Isn't he cute?

The Dog

Boy #2 loves to pretend to be an animal. Some days he is a kitty cat and other days he is a dog. Over the summer my good friend from high school came for a visit. She brought her dog and the dog's large crate. Boy #2 loved her dog and the crate. More recently boy #2 put on his too small doggy costume and hung out with the family dog.

Don't you love the panting tongues?

Which is the real dog?

A few weeks ago we had an overnight trip to Goblin Valley. We took the boys there last year and we had such a great time. This time we traveled with my brother and three of my nieces. Even though the trip there was filled with unexpected obstacles, such as not finding a camping spot since it was so crowded, overhearing some campers say they had seen two rattlesnakes, driving 30 miles back to Green River to sleep, and boy #1 throwing up half the night, it was still fun. Here are the pictures to prove it.

The boys and lots of goblins

We went on the Little Wild Horse hike and boy #2 kept finding what he called shelter

The hike had some cool rock formations

There were lots of cool, narrow passages during the hike
