The Fruits Of Four 10's

Damon started working four 10's this last week. I feel like he's a stranger in our home Monday through Thursday. But there are some definite fruits from his hard labor however...two days of hard playing and one day of relaxation. We spent this last weekend wakeboarding and camping. Our muscles are soar and our nights were restless but we'd do it all over again if we could.

The Climb, Camp, Pedal, Swim Trip

Well thanks to Aunt Laura, Grandma Brenda and let's not forget the 3 M's (Maren, Maddie and Mason) Damon and I were able to get away for 3 days and have a little alone time.

We started the festivities off by visiting the Manti Temple. A rare occasion with three small kids and 1 1/2 drive each way. It was exactly what we needed to put things into perspective and set the tune for our trip.

Then we hit some rock climbing and camping at Maple Canyon, the whole time munching on a bag of red ripe cherries!

The next morning we headed over to Diamond Fork for some mountain biking and hot pots! Then we headed to Provo for some relaxation, shopping and PF Changs (mmm lettuce wraps).

When checking in to our hotel that night Damon was asking what a suite cost. The receptionist said $150. Damon said, "Do you have a "first time away from the kids in 6 years" rate?" The receptionist laughed and gave him the suite for $99! Yahoo! At about midnight we headed to Walmart for some Ben and Jerry's ice cream. (I know our spontaneity is out of control)

The next day we headed over to BYU to pick up a free football poster and schedule. We waved to the team as we drove by! It was a great trip and I personally am more excited to spend every waking moment with my children!

Big First Grader

Cru's first day of school! He woke up so excited and was just plain goofy, making jokes and laughing at everything. He was so cute I just had to take a picture to share!
