Shawn loves it when I make him this laundry basket recliner. It is the only way I can get him to watch a movie for more than 1 minute. It is a trick I use when I need a few minutes to get something done and he won't let me.

One of the main reasons we love Utah, besides family, is that we live so close to the mountains. We hiked Stewart Fall this weekend. It was nice and cool when we went and even rained slightly. Right when we got back to the car it started raining really hard. Perfect timing! Shawn did pretty good on the hike. When people passed us Shawn would say, "Good morning" or if they had a dog he said, "hi dog dog". We had to carry him about 1/2 the time which is better than we expected. It was so fun going for a hike. We haven't done that in a long time.

Bear Lake Trip

We went to Bear Lake last week. We go every year and we love it. We had pretty good weather even though it was colder than in years past. Shawn had a great time. He spent hours every day in the sand and water. Never once did he get bored with it.
The exciting part of the week was the mice in our condo. This is the first time in ten years that we have had any problems with the place. My sisters and I were watching a movie when all of a sudden they both start screaming and running around. I had no idea what was happening. Then finally they shouted that a mouse ran across the floor. We watched for it and tried to find where it went. Then we called after hours emergency and they set out traps at about 1:00am. We were all so tired and not used to being up so late. We were completely giggly and I am sure the guy thought we were drunk. In the morning we found the dead mouse. Then then next morning we found another one. It was so disgusting. Let's just say that after a lot of fighting with the front office we ended up with a discount on our condo. I guess we won't have to drive all the way to California to see mickey mouse, he came to us. :)
Anyway, our trip was great and it went too fast. Here are some of the many pictures I took. Sorry I didn't get any pictures of the decapitated mice.
