Happy kids

How to make a child or two deliriously happy:

Raise their bedtime on weekdays from 8pm to 9 pm. You will hear their shouts and screams of joy down several blocks and be squeezed to death with love.

The end of ski season

I don't know if you follow us on instagram or not- but if not-- you have only missed a ton of snowboarding photos so don't feel too bad. I mentioned earlier that we moved to Utah and I haven't done any blogging since, really. 

So to catch you up:  we've been snowboarding. A lot.

Now that it's March 31 we are mourning the loss of the snow as it melts rapidly in the mountains. We only got about 3 good snowfalls in the valley (which was kind of nice) but our snow dog North is ticked about it.  

I'm sure April will bring at least one big, unwanted (by the rest of the population) snowstorm. But as I sit here and reflect on how amazing this winter was, I just wanted to express my gratitude for a life that allows me to enjoy my hobby very frequently, as well as a family and friends who like to enjoy it with me. My snowboarding hobby is more like an obsession and after boarding this season more than 50 times, I am not even ashamed to call it an obsession.

ew!

In case you are in need of a laugh, here is what is making us laugh recently. It's an "ew!" sketch from Jimmy Fallon with Channing Tatum. 


If you don't laugh while watching this, I'm going to start wondering about myself...

birthdays

Isabelle loves to tell anyone she meets a certain riddle. The riddle goes like this:

"My Nana and I were born on the same day of the year. But our birthdays are on different dates. How is this so?"

The answer is that Isabelle's nana was born on April 21st. When Isabelle was born, although it was still April 21st on the west coast, it was April 22nd on the east coast where her birthmother gave birth to her.  Nobody guesses this, to Izzy's great delight. 

But Isabelle once wondered aloud, how her birthmother was able to give birth so late at night. "How can you give birth when you are sleeping?" she asked.  After laughing I answered, You definitely, DEFINITELY are awake when you give birth! It hurts a lot, I hear! You cry! You scream! You push hard until the baby comes out!"

Belle looked horrified. "I am never giving birth. EVER."

Here is where Isaac chimed in, "Well that's why adoption is the smart way to go.  Well, on second thought I guess I don't have to worry about any of this."

HA!
