Diversion

We were supposed to move last weekend. We found out Thursday night that our move probably wasn't going to happen. We had already packed the majority of our belongings not only into boxes but also into two trailers and had no plans for Saturday beside moving. So we decided to go on a road trip as a diversion of sorts.

During the drive, Asher got really excited about having his picture taken. Anytime we put our cameras away he'd start saying "cheese" until Kayla or I took his picture.

When we pulled into town, we went straight to our favorite restaurant: El Gallo Giro. Awesomely authentic Mexican. Then we went to our hotel, put the kids to bed, and played Draw Something on our respective phones. After a quick trip to Macey's for amazing caramel pretzel ice cream and a few episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, we went to bed.


The next day, we woke up bright and early, courtesy of Reed. We started our day by driving to Park City for a quick trip to the outlet mall, where we scored a few sick deals at Children's Place.

Reed was really, really sad when I informed him we weren't actually buying these hats, just wearing them for fun. Oops.

After PC, we went to IKEA, which is always an adventure. We made it rain money with some fantastic finds for our new house.

This little man was kind of tired:
But luckily we got fro-yo to perk him up. This is his first ice cream/frozed yogurt cone, ever, by the way. He was a huge fan.

Finally, we decided to do something the boys might enjoy: bowling! And where else would you bowl but the basement of the Wilk?


Asher was super grumpy and only happy at the bowling alley if he was touching a ball at all times. Reed, on the other hand, had a fantastic time. He loved the ramp--we've never used one before.


Finally, we loaded up the car and set off for home. Thank goodness for Au Pair Kay-Kay, who kept the boys entertained until they fell asleep--after which an epic game of 20 questions ensued.

Sunday was my last Sunday with the Young Women in my ward. I'm really, really going to miss them. Luckily, I get to go back in a few weeks to help with an activity I planned. Anyway, after I went to YW in our old ward, we decided to go to our new ward--and we love it. Everyone is super friendly, there are a ton of kids, and Reed and Asher both liked their classes. I'm even more excited to move now!

Oh I want to go to Park City SO bad! I miss northern Utah, ha ha.
So you aren't moving at all, or just not over the weekend like you had planned?
