What we've been up to lately

Being fashionable while running errands...in the house...

Enjoying springtime in Salt Lake:

Hee Haw Farms Spring Fling with the fam:
Oh, and this...
Also happening, but not in pictures:
- Easter
- Mother's Day (people take pictures of holidays? Apparently I always forget that)
- Claire's wretched hand injury from when she inexplicably stuck her hand under a moving treadmill belt. Took off a LOT of skin from her palm and fingers. Pretty nasty stuff. It is on the mend, but boy howdy has it been traumatizing for all three of us. Let's hope everything goes back together the way it should.
- CLAIRE IS POTTY TRAINED!!! I don't know what I'm more excited about- Brady's graduation or Claire being potty trained? Honestly, it's a toss up, but I am immensely proud of both of them. Happily, unlike college, getting my kid to ditch the diapers was easy-peasy compared to what I thought it would be. A couple of accidents the first two days, and then smooth sailing from there, even at night! Can you believe it? We haven't changed a diaper for a full week now. I thought the hand injury would derail everything, but the girl has been a champ and I am so relieved to have this checked off my parenting checklist. Hooray!

All in all, life is good lately...minus precious little hands getting injured...but we're happy and healthy and looking forward to summer :)
