we started off our day at La Brea Tarpits checking out all the fossils and imagining what life would have been like all those years ago.  it is hard to imagine all those animals roaming around what is now our fast paced city jam packed with tons of people.  then we made our way over to the farmers market for some lunch before heading home.

2014, childhood unplugged, us

we took the kids to Utah for Thanksgiving and to say that they loved the snow is kind of an understatement.  it was funny to see marley and remy run out into the snow in their shorts and flip-flops all while refusing to listen to us, as if we had no idea what we were talking about when we warned them to dress warmer and throw some boots on. they didn’t last long before they were running in and changing.  then we packed them all up in the car and drove over to Park City to get some lunch.  they had a hard time waiting till after lunch to have a snow ball fight, they were throwing snow at each other as we walked down the street looking for a place to stop and eat.  sorry to all the innocent by-standers that might have had a bit of snow chucked in their direction.

this guy is fourteen, and i don’t want to believe it.  he has grown up so much lately.  he starts high school next year, he’s taller than me, and wears the same shoe size as his dads.  this boy made me a mom.  i was young and he was a surprise.  i remember being so excited that i was going to have a baby but i also remember having a few panic attacks that i was going to be a mom and i really had no idea what i was doing.  as soon as the doctors put him in my arms everything seemed right.  happy birthday babe.  love you.

we took a road trip to utah and stayed one night in zion on our way there.  the kids loved seeing all the red rocks, and they think staying in a hotel is basically the best thing ever.  when we got to utah the next day the kids were so excited to see that it had just snowed.  it was marley and remy’s first time in the snow so they built their very first snowman right away.  we spent our time visiting with cousins, celebrating some birthdays, snowboarding, sledding, going downtown, driving over to park city and enjoying a week of shutting out most of the to-do’s and deadlines.

the morning drop offs. after the hustle of waking everyone up, getting dressed, eating breakfast, making lunches, battling the usual “i don’t wanna go to school today” from a certain few, and finding shoes we make it out of the house in barely just enough time.  three kids, three schools.  remy is the last to drop off and he usually watches out his window as the big kid-middle schoolers walk across the street to school.  watching his big brother till he turns the corner behind the school walls and is out of sight.
