Train Ride

 Here's Jessica taking a break, looking so cozy!
 Riding the train to SLC with the boys.
 Fake smoking. We couldn't resist such juvenile antics.

Happy Holidays! Love you Jessica!

Catching Up!

 It's been a while since I've been able to post. We have been having so many adventures. We've been all over Salt Lake and Ogden. Here we were on a cold rainy day on West Temple going to catch the Trax, where we set up shop at the public library. Erin came and met up with us. She helped Jessica find some free apps on her computer.

 Later, we rode the bus. There happened to be a lot of loud and friendly high school students on the bus with us.
 This picture was taken on the Front Runner train, enroute to Ogden. Jessica was making and eating pizzas the entire time. She still had room for lunch though upon arrival!
 Below is the artist. She painted some lovely hamburgers, diet cokes, and fries. Love it!
 I picked this picture because Jessica looks like a beautiful frolicking mermaid, singing in a turquoise ocean.
 A card making party at my sister, Erin's, house.

 We made an appearance at the Grand Opening of Trader Joe's. We might have had more success if we followed Kathryn's advice to"'wear football helmets and elbow pads..." but we didn't get the message in time. :) We ended up sampling some free cookies and juice and then getting the heck out of there.
We passed this crazy metallic bell display and cardboard nativity while driving around. So fun! Festive!

Fall Road Trip 2012

Jessica and I had a fantastic time in Las Vegas. We enjoyed the corny architecture, crowds of people, food, and sights of the big flashy city.
 View from a parking garage
 Jennifer (childhood friend) and Jessica helping me set up my art exhibit.

 Bright lights and people galore!
 Jessica even got a picture with Pee Wee Herman.

 Emily Ruth Foster, my friend from BYU and owner of "Other Voices Gallery."
 The firefighters were at our art show!
 Our first meal upon arriving in Vegas: chicken, rice, vegetables. Yum!
 Starting the following day out right: bacon, eggs,and toast.
 My breakfast: french toast and fried potatoes.
 Frozen Yogurt for dinner? No problem.
 Jessica took this picture of me while we walked around and saw the sights.
 Neither of us qualified for a free meal. Darn it!

 Jessica and Jennifer (again).

Thanks to Jessica for such a fun and memorable vacation. Thanks to Kathryn for letting her come!

First Snowy Day

 We drove North to Brigham City to pick up the wee child, Asher. Jessica is an excellent teacher. She would say the names of the letters and Asher would say the pictures.

 Lunch at none other than "Rotten Ronnies." Jess even climbed in the play area. I was surprised, but should have known, that girl just wants to have fun, even if there are toddlers everywhere.
 Jess travels with her own sound system. Once it's in place, let the grooves begin.
 We fed ducks and walked around for exercise before the fleeting sun faded. The hungry ducks and geese looked rather intimidating. At once point Jess was burrowed into me, while Asher had climbed the hill to escape. After we were all out of bread, I chased them all away and they didn't bother us anymore. I kind of felt like the hero. :)
