Ty's 4-wheeler mishap!

Ty loves to ride 4-wheelers and we are always very strict about the helmet rule, no helmet, not ride! Well I forgot his helmet this weekend and figured we were only riding up and down the street and on the snow covered lawn, what could possibly happen! I decided to take him over a snow hill and the 4-wheeler hit a bump and Ty flew forward and hit his head on the handlebars. He cut his nose and eye and ended up with a pretty bad black eye, the picture does not do it justice! I felt so bad, I guess it just goes to show you that there is a reason for always wearing a helmet! Luckily it did not slow him down at all, he kept running to look in the mirror and he would say, "I look really cool don't I mom!" Needless to say the rest of the afternoon he wore a helmet everytime he went near the 4-wheelers!

Sledding at Grandpa and Grandma Brown's!

We went to Price this weekend to visit my parents. They have been getting so much snow this year and to top it off they live on the wrong side of the road, not it never seems to melt! The snow on their front lawn was higher than than porch, it was incredible! We got out the 4-wheelers and pulled the kids on sleds, Sean and Barry did their usual hobby of getting the 4-wheelers stuck and having to get out the wench and ropes to pull out the machines! Sean spent hours digging a snowcave, which turned out to be very cool, I finally understand why the scouts find it fun to make snow caves and sleep in them, I would love to try it! It is always fun to go home for the weekend!

BYU Earth Science Museum

Sandi and I decided that we needed to get ourselves out of the house, so naturally we headed to the BYU Earth Science Museum! When we pulled up to the building that looked like an aluminum parking structure my first instinct was to call Sean and tell him he had led us astray, no way was there a museum in there. And if there was, it was not worth going inside! We were a bit surprised! It was indeed very small, but it is so kid friendly. Ty and Amelia could run around, touch the fossils, and be as loud as they wanted! They had a lot of cool dinosaur fossils, rocks, fish and plant fossils, and a turtle! It actually turned out to be a lot of fun for the kids as well as Sandi and I!

Obsession with Cars

As you can tell from the pictures Ty has a slight fascination with the Cars movie. He started off with 2-3 cars and the obsession grew from there. I would love to say that the obsession is only limited to Ty, but I have found that I am a bit obsessed myself. Everytime I go to a store that may possibly sale cars I find myself walking straight to the cars aisle in hopes of finding yet another hard to find car! I get so excited when I find a new car he does not have, which is a very hard task since at last count he had 56 of the cars! We had been looking for "tounge lightning" for so long, we walked into Kmart the other day and they had him! I immedietly grabbed him and said, "no freaking way, we found him!" For the remainder of the time we were at the store Ty kept saying, "no freaking way mom, this is so cool!" Needless to say, I am not helping the situation much when I seem to love them as much as Ty!
