Utah Fun

So.......... we are now taking some time to visit family and friends in Utah, and we have a lot of them to visit. The kids have been having a great time running around outside and playing with the yellow dump truck. We get the chance to stay with my mom, Grandma T, for 3 weeks. It is nice to be home for longer than 2 days. Two special babies. Taryn always wakes up before Tyson and she is a pill about waking him up.
She will walk into his room yelling, "Tysee, Tysee, Tysee." All the while her mom, that would be me, is chasing her bobbing little head saying, "SHHHHHHHH!" She then manages to get up on the bed, what a monkey, and then lay down by Tyson and hug him. AHHH!! At least she loves him so much that she wants to be with him.Aunt D and her handsome nephew. We took a day and headed down to St. George to see Danielle and Uncle Jesse. She took us to a new place to eat called Iggy's. Delicious. I just wish I could sit down the whole time and eat my meal.Instead of eating my meal, I get to chase "Missy Moo" around the place, as she was uninterested in eating her grilled cheese. That is normal! (What a cheezer)

After some shopping and eating, we headed back to Aunt D's home in Hurricane, Utah! MomaD entertained us with her dazzling piano playing. That woman can play! She just starts to play all of these fun, up beat tunes, with no music involved. I can only dream of playing like that. She is one amazing woman.Grandma T and Taryn danced to the music MomaD was playing. They were having a great old time.Taryn wasn't too sure about Uncle Jesse, at first. It only took a little while for her to decide that he was ok to be around.
Aunt D loves her niece and nephew, and they love her. Look at the three of them. So cute. It was a great time seeing my sister and brother-in-law. I miss her terribly and I am so grateful for the precious times I have to see her. Thanks D for the special day with you!
Little miss pose! Taryn loves to pose for pictures, (she is a lot like her Aunt D when she was a little girl). Turn on the camera and tell her to say "cheese" and she does with flair! She is also singing a lot more and loves the primary song, Follow The Prophet. Even though she cannot sing the words, the little beauty can sing the tune. It just boggles my mind. Every time I put her down for a nap or for bedtime she says, "Sinnng Sinng." Which means she wants me to sing and when you ask her what song she wants, she proceeds to hum the tune of Follow The Prophet. She amazes me!

This little yellow dump truck power wheels vehicle, has provided many hours of fun for these kids. It is the first thing they want to do when Tyson gets home from Preschool. Taryn will hop in the passenger side and hit the driver's seat with her hand and say some lingo and basically tell Tyson to get in so they can go for a ride, since he is the only one of the two that can drive it. HA HA HA. Cracks me up. And they will drive all around the block and want to go more. By then I am about out of breath because the thing has a low and a high switch, well I bet you can guess which one my son uses. YEAH, HIGH! So I run, and I mean run along side of them. WHEW...they can wear me out sometimes.

Your mom and grandma haven't aged a day in the last 17 yrs. That would tell you how long I've been out of high school. They look great! Glad you could spend sometime with your family. Good luck with new place. I know how you feel about moving your kids. We have done our share of moving. Have fun on your new adventure! :)
