Our fun weekend

This last weekend, we went up to Clinton for Claire's baby blessing. It was so much fun.

We met Nick and Mandy at IKEA (greatest place ever!!) and shopped around for a bit. We got these really cool DVD racks. They screw into your wall, so now Glade can't get to our movies!! We ate dinner at the IKEA diner, saw my cousin Kasey, and then went to Mandy's apartment for the night and next day.

We chilled and shopped and watched Glade chase Michael and Michael chase Glade and had a pretty good time!

Saturday night was the blessing and Glade ran around so much she was exhausted by 8 pm. They did family pictures after the blessing and the minute they were about to take the picture, Glade would run into the picture and pose so they would have to get her out and try again. But the minute they set her up to do her pictures, of course she didn't want any of that!

After the blessing we drove to Alpine and stayed there for the night. The next day we went to get Wii Play for Pam (it has the extra controller and the game, so it's TOTALLY worth it) and we went to 2 Walmarts, a Best Buy, a Target, and 3 Game Stores before we found it. And the store that finally had it also had Wii Fit, so we got that too! We had been playing it most of the weekend since Mandy and Pam have it, and we fell in love with it!

Sunday night we had dinner with Ray and Pam and invited Bowden and his new GF, Mary, over for dinner. It was a lot of fun just chilling most of the day and relaxing.

We left Alpine at about 8:30 pm, right in the middle of the big storm. It took us 4 1/2 hours just to get back to Cedar! There was one 20 mile strip of the entire drive that was clear of snow and rain and everything so we were able to finally go at least 70! Most of the drive was only at about 40 or 45 mph. We got KILLER gas mileage thought!! (From Nephi to Cedar (176 miles) we only used less than a quarter tank!

And of course when we got home, Glade saw Ridley and decided it was time to play and have fun. We finally settled her down enough to get her to sleep at about 2, but Ridley was so excited to see us, he kept us up all night. It was great he missed us, but dang....
It was a really fun weekend!
(Below is a picture of Glade working out... She says she's getting a little chubby ;) )

Glade loves the Wii Fit. She stands on it, does headstands on it, and just loves pointing the Wii mote at the TV while playing it
