Shower Scrabble...

At my baby shower here in Utah last May, I received a package of foam bath letters from Zac's cousin, Emily. Until recently, I just had them with all of the other bath things I haven't gotten to using yet (like bubble bath, etc). Finally, I decided to get them out, especially since Logan sits up and spends most of his bath time playing and splashing. I figured he'd appreciate some new toys to play with. Well, after his bath the first night with them, I forgot to take them out of the tub, so they were all in there when Zac got up to take his shower the next morning. So when he was done and I hopped in, "I Love you" was spelled out with the letters on the tile. It was precious.

Well, over the past few weeks, some letters have found their way out of the bathroom and end up in other miscellaneous places throughout the house and the number of letters remaining in use are limited. But I got in the shower the other morning to find this:

Zac had used all the letters available and turned the shower tiles into some type of Scrabble board. Well, naturally, I felt compelled to do the same. I was able to come up with a new arrangement...but Zac pointed out that I re-used "PUNK" and I had to switch some things around. So now the better part of our showers center around "Shower Scrabble." Good times. Logan even started in on the fun...

In other news, Dani and I are planning our road trip to California. I mean, we're actually going! I'm so excited! We have the dates picked and know roughly what we're doing. We're staying with her sister-in-law when we get to California, and we are definitely going to the Ellen show on the 13th. We have scheduled in the beach, since I have never been. And we talked about Disney Land, but that probably won't happen. It's really expensive! We also have people we want to see...I'm hoping to meet up with Emily Harris and Uncle Gary's old girlfriend, Sue. I emailed her today and hoping to hear back soon.

Well, I guess that's all from the home front. Oh, wait. For all those of you reading from New York, it was 53 and sunny here today. Suckers. Now THAT's all from here. Love you!!!!

I have a lot to comment on! Haven't been around for awhile...

Love the letters! They look like fun. I'm seriously considering them for Eldon's birthday. Your trip to Cali sounds great! Is Logan going with you? I'm such a wimp about those things...I hate traveling with the kids and only get comfortable going places with them as they get older. Maybe it's because my kids hate their carseats SO much. I hope you get to go to Disneyland.

The vacation to St. George sounds like it was fun. I'm glad Logan is such a good traveler for you guys! The swimming looks like fun too. Would you believe Eldon still hasn't been to the pool yet? It seems like every time we tried to go something came up (pool closed, car wreck, someone pooped in the pool, etc...) but nothing will stop us this summer since our apartment complex has a pool in it!

The deer are really pretty. I remember seeing them around the quad. Utah really is a beautiful place.

I'm so happy to finally see a picture of Parker! Your little guys looks so cute together! And I hear you on the babyfood. It was never a huge hit for Eldon or Lilly. (I suspect Lilly doesn't like it simply because WE are trying to feed it to her though). I had to find other things that they would eat. The result was that they ate some things a little earlier than the experts suggest, just because we were eating those same things for dinner and the kids wanted them so badly! The kids love rice, beans, cheese, and salsa. Lilly is really good with solids so it has worked out ok. At least she is getting something in her tummy, even if it isn't pureed babyfood. She wants things she can pick up. She liked the puffs a lot for awhile...

Whew! So that's about it! Hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather! I can't wait until Spring and we can get outdoors A LOT!
