So grateful that the sunshine is back!
I firmly believe that all living things are solar powered- not just high-fa-lootin' cars.
We spent the morning making cards to send to loved ones (hope they make it in the mail sometime this century) and Charlie learned to love his new swing. $2 at a yardsale and it's exactly what I've been looking for! It's a wind up kind so no worries about batteries. Also only swings long enough to calm him down so it's not incessantly going all the time. I kind of like it myself. It looks like THIS
It works for us and I only put him in it if I'm around-- I do NOT trust his siblings. A little common sense goes a long way. Saves my back too because usually if he's really upset I'm swing him in his carseat for a minute to calm him down- and it kills my back.
We had Charlie's blessing this weekend (similar to a Christening) and my Dad and Step-mom we able to make the long trek out here for it. It was good to see them- though far too short. They kept raving about the area so perhaps we can convince them to come out and visit again sometime. (Hint Hint) People don't get why we would move to such a small town... that is- until they've been here. It is beautiful. Want picture proof? People come from all over the world to see things like this:
|Prettier shot of the Bear's Ears with a road. I like this one better.|
|Delicate Arch near Moab-- you may have seen this on the Utah license plates.|
|Glen Canyon Dam|
|Goosenecks (which looks similar to the Grand Canyon in my opinion) but it's the San Juan River not the Colorado.|
|Monument Valley at Sunset|
|Monument Valley with road|
|The Sleeping Ute|
And they're all within two hours of here.
So come visit us people!
