4 Things for Friday

1. Last weekend we went hiking with some of Leland's co-workers. This was a supposedly easy hike so we decided to go with the girls. Holy cow it was not easy haha. I am pretty out of shape, but still we were hiking up a steep stream and both trying not to slip since we were carrying the babies. It was a good workout though. The company Leland works for is doing an initiative to try and get the employees to do 20 hikes before labor day. I'm thinking us girls will be sitting most of them out from now on haha. This hike was Ferguson Canyon in Cottonwood Heights. 

2. Look at this smiley girl with all her chub! We are getting ready for her blessing day this Sunday and praying we don't get rained on! She is such a sweet little girl who just goes with the flow. I can't believe she will be 3 months old next week! :'(

3. Some of Esther's recent quotes:

**Leland puts a dish in the sink**
Esther: Good job Dada!

Me: Esther, what is your baby's name?
Esther: Toots!

**Whenever Loki scratches or bites her (She almost always is hurting him first...)
Esther: Mama, Loti hurt you! No No Loti!

Also whenever we are watching a show or reading a book she is always the main character. She will point and say "There Esther". 

4. So I've been trying to spend less time on the internet and more time reading lately. I just finished reading These is My Words By Nancy Turner. How had I never heard of this book before? Anyone who knows me knows I love a good pioneer book :) I loved this book and I am still thinking about it a few weeks later. It made me realize that the things that we worry about today with our kids usually aren't all that important. Like wondering if they have good self esteem or if they know all their shapes before preschool. Back then they were just worried about if their kids had enough food and would live to see adulthood. It made my mama heart so sad whenever the kids would die. It made me thankful for all the pioneers went through and so glad for all the modern medicine and technology we have today. 

p.s. Adele is soooo smiley! I really need to take her to get her pictures taken while she is still such a good photo subject :)
