This is what happens when there's a Patagonia outlet in your city.

We lucked out this past weekend and got a site at the Spruces campground up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Although we got there late, it was super fun and Astrid loved every minute of it. Thomas only woke up once and fell asleep nursing. Next weekend: more camping fun with cousins and VW grandparents.

Astrid too wound up to go to sleep...

In the morning we found a little squirrel dying in the middle of the road (it hadn't been run over; we're not sure why it was dying), so we moved it to the side and Astrid hung out with it a bit and gave it pinecones.

two months

So the viscious cycle of having a baby and losing them one fast month at a time has started once again. Boo. Thomas has grown out of all his newborn and 0-3 mos. clothes and all his size 3 month clothes fit him snuggly. Double boo.
On the bright side, he slept from 9:30-5 last night. I don't think Astrid slept that many consecutive hours until he was born.

i love his double chin

love utah

This last weekend we went up Little Cottonwood Canyon to do a family friendly short hike to Cecret Lake. The wildflowers were amazing. There are few things that are as beautiful as mountainsides covered in wildflowers to me. And, experiencing it with your family, makes it just perfect.

Everytime Astrid asks if she can hold Thomas, she also asks me to take a picture. I love it.
