Time to clean the floors!!!!

So its official Haylee is crawling. And she's not doing any of the army crawling like Payton, she's on all fours and cruising everywhere. My life just became much more difficult.

Wellsville Mountains

Google "steepest mountains" and you will get the Wellsville Mountains. Rumor has it they are in the Guinness book of world records. I have always wanted to explore them but everyone has told me they are too steep. So when someone said they were going I jumped right on board. What an awesome adventure! Me, Patti, Jenny and Jenny
View from Wellsville Cone
Elevation: 9356 feet
Patti's victory flag
View of Box Elder County from first summit
The leaves were just starting to change and everything was beautiful and the weather perfect.
Other fun facts about the day:
I had an awesome babysitter and perfect cell phone coverage the entire time.
In this case going up was much easier than going down...the descent was so steep!
I found out that one of the girls I went with is a cousin to a good friend of mine.
There was a 70 year old woman doing the same hike...needless to say she gave me much inspiration.
Hikers are very nice people.
I remembered again how spiritual nature can be.
I forgot sunscreen...so ya I'm red.
I ate everything I took and drank all my water, so I guess I can't be classified as over-prepared.
I was thinking about Hannah most of the time, hoping she was surviving Hurricane Ike.
I'm still struggling with stairs...ouch I'm so sore.

The things kids say....

Josie: Mom GIVE ME MY YOGURT.
Me: Josie I'm busy and you are not asking nicely
Josie: GIVE ME MY YOGURT!
Me: Josie stop seriously, I will when I'm finished
Josie: You never give me anything like fish, or peacocks, or yogurt!
Josie(holding her thigh): Mom I'm getting skinny.
Me: Oh no!
Josie: I think I better eat some cereal.
Me: I think you're ok
Josie: Are you skinny?
Me: No I'm kinda chubby.
Josie: Oh I don't want to be chubby like you and Haylee

Dad: Josie give me a kiss on the cheek
Josie: Let me kiss you with my foot

Me: Josie you can't ever grow up
Josie: But why?
Me: Because I want you to stay little forever and be my little girl. I don't want you to grow up and go to school or move away. I don't want you to grow up.
Josie: But mom I need to.
Me: Why?
Josie: Cuz I need to reach things.


Me: Josie eat your dinner, it's good.
Josie: No it's sick
Me: Payton likes it. Huh Payton it's good?
Payton: Uh Huh, it's good Josie
Josie: No it's sick
Payton: You're tupid

Driving past our church
Grandma: Payton there's you're church
Payton: Hate it
Grandma: What?
Payton: Hate church
Grandma: No you don't
Payton: Hate it
Grandma: Do you like to learn about Jesus?
Payton: Ya....

Clearly we need to work on Payton's language, seems how yesterday at the park he used a bad word like 50 times. I was so embarrassed! And just to defend myself he was trying to say witch....Oh and you know how he used to repeat all the animals sounds at church...Now he likes to identify all the animals behinds in all the books and then say "Bum" and then laugh...sorry to everyone who sits next to us. I usually apologize before the meeting just so they know what they are getting themselves into.
