Fun Extravaganza ~ H

We were a wee bit lazy this week.

Mommy got a new purse! I love that it has a little pocket for my iPhone. Aunt Bobbi says that Green is the new Black for fall. And she knows everything about purses and shoes.

We started out the week without a car because Hubby's car broke down Sunday afternoon (so much for that lucky Praying Mantis) so he had to take the family truckster to work.

Luckily, the car was fixed by Tuesday when we went to the Tree House Children's Museum with our Family Helper, Natalie. This was to be our last play date of the summer because Natalie starts 9th grade on Monday. We are going to miss her like crazy!

The children's museum has a great little room with two train tables in it. Alex loves trains and this is were he wanted to spend his time. Without Mommy. He kept leading me out to the door and giving me a little push. And one time he walked me over to a nice cushy chair and instructed me to sit while he returned to his trains. When more children began to arrive, he was very cross with them for playing with his trains so I convinced him to go see the drum room. He loved that for about 10 minutes before returning to the train room. I once again convinced him that a spot of tea would hit the spot and then we had to go because Mommy was flipping exhausted!
I only got to spend a short amount of time with Mallory...but during that time we went to the 'market and kitchen' area. She loved shopping for food but wanted nothing to do with cooking anything in the little kitchen. She and Nat had a lovely time together! Note to Poopa: Do you recognize Mallory's outfit? It is the one you bought for her. She looks so cute in it!

Before we left the children paid a visit to the one room school house. This is where I got a glimpse of the future.

Mallory.....immersed in her studies.

Alex....gazing out the window.

Wednesday, we had Toga Night. I bought these great silk squares from the internet ( I have going to dye them different colors) and the kids wanted to wear them.

Thursday was Mommy's Field Trip and I found out that Brother Horton came by again. I'm really puzzled how that man knows every single time that I am out of the house for an extended amount of time so that he can come over and work on my husband. I think I'm being tailed by the LDS church!

Friday, we rested because Mommy got home at 1 AM.

Saturday, we went out looking for a big boy bed for Alex. We found one we like but still aren't sure....we sure do miss American Furniture Warehouse in Denver. We stopped in at Sonora Grill in Downtown Ogden for lunch and I was horribly disappointed. We had heard that the food was wonderful so we had high expectations. Table side Guacamole sounded just fabulous but turned out under-spiced and bland. We ordered the lunch sized portions of Camarones Mojo De Ajo (prawns in garlic sauce with greens and rice) and Lime Chicken with Coconut Rice. Both dishes lacked flavor and were not worth the $14 price tag. I did enjoy the two salsas' and giant tortilla chips. And the Granada Mojito was great. I told Calvin the only reason I would come back would be for a cocktail before a movie and he reminded me that you can't do that in have to order food. Welcome to Chutah!

That reminds me. Our new phrase when we discover something ridiculous or humorous about Utah is....Welcome to Utah! Well, Alex is a parrot lately and he coined our NEW phrase.

Welcome to Chutah!

Chutah is what he calls pizza.....

We got great news this weekend! Nana, Poopa, Uncle Drew AND Uncle Robbie are coming to see us next weekend! We are so excited! We have not seen them since Christmas.


  1. This reminds me that I need a new purse. ;)

  2. The pictures of the kiddos are just darling. So what does it say about me that I am totally hung up on that purse. I looove green accessories. But The Hubs knows that I am totally in love with my $40 Birken knock-off, so no way can I justify a new purse (and darn it for being a high quality knock off that is still in amazing condition a year later).

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I love that green purse!! Great find!

  4. Great purse. And I love "chuta." Reminds me of a phrase that Winona from Daddy Likey uses for people who wear their skirts way to short: "Don't Show-cha Your Chocha."

  5. Cute purse! I like that shade of green.

  6. My lovely, lovely purse is from JC Penneys!

    And it was totally on sale for a great price. So great that I am thinking of buying another one in another color.

    shhh...don't tell hubby!

  7. Didn't you post about a trip to IKEA once? Why don't you check that out for the big boy bed? That children's museum looks really cool!

  8. Cute purse. And I love Mallory's outfit! And those photos of her at the desk and him at the window!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
