Nothing noteworthy to any man I know, but last month I weaned my baby. Because nobody really wants a picture to tell that story I've supplied WEEN, a pretty good band instead. I've been away for three nights a week lately and with the coming and going of errands, and Izzy's age I figured now would be the best time. The kid didn't even care, no transitional period for her...only wish my body took it that easily!
In case you couldn't tell, these are pictures from a trip we had to St. George with the Smiths and the Hunts this past month. (yes, I pretty much forgot about pictures until the last morning when Brooke gladly posed for me.) Aside from Swiss Days, In and Out burgers, swimming, car injuries, $50 worth of pizza, and terrific deals at the outlets, we all learned so much about pork and the history of swine. We also had fun playing games and laughing into the night. Thanks for a good time guys! I hope we can do it again, and that someone remembers where our time capsule is! Thanks also to Nana Judy for taking Anna and Quinner for us for the weekend!
Another highlight for September, bagels. Brett and I started a tradition of getting bagels on Saturday mornings way back in our college days. We made it to Einstein's last month for some chocolate chip bagels with pumpkin cream cheese and then drove up through the canyon to check out the changing leaves. I think it's a sentimental thing for me because it's something Brett and I always did when it was just the two of us, and it's special now to share it with our kids.
We also made it down to Payson to see the family this month. Brett had to reach his goal of hiking two mountains by the end of the season, so while he hiked Mt. Nebo, Judy and I took the kids to pick raspberries. Our outing wasn't as exciting to the kids as I'd expected, but I really liked picking the berries, and we had some tasty shakes that evening.
