The Reader's Digest version of my week...

Ok kids, it’s almost that time of year again! Right here in the scorching heat of August, there is nothing I think about more than this:

Blue Ribbon winner at the Tooele County Fair. I loved it.

Deseret Peak Complex. Now there is a mouthful. NASCAR & BMX. A swimming pool, a Fire Museum, a mining museum, playgrounds AND a we happened to have reservations during the Tooele County Fair.

Hah, that worked out, eh? Sagan had a lot of fun with it in our “backyard” for a couple of days.

Now that the fair is gone, it’s relatively quiet. Ember seemed to get a kick out of all the happenings.

We thought Ember and Smokey should become aquainted early on. ;-)

Of course Mark walked around to the side door… to see if there was any other instructions. Hahaha This sign was at a Greek food booth. Mark talked the guy out of a free order of fries.

I’ve done 3 shifts now at the Breastfeeding Café.

It’s fun. I do know that the library has strange people in it…

Maybe I’m one of them. ;-)

Took a hike with Swiss, Ember’s SpiritParent (she’s the reason I know mark at ALL), up to Rocky Mouth Waterfall.

It’s amazingly close to the city, yet there you are, not a sound, sight or smell from the city. It’s a great place to go when it’s hot. The water is ice cold.

I can’t believe how out of shape and fat I am. I used Embers backpack for the first hike of any sort, Can’t be more than 22 lbs. with her and the pack and the water. Still. The hike is straight up some stairs. I thought I was gonna die. Pathetic. Gotta start somewhere, though. I think Diamond Fork might have been easier.

I’ve been busy making home made baby food for Ember. She’s loving this whole eating thing, so I figured the least I could do is make her some really yummy food.

Healthy food. Organic bananas, avocados, yams, applesauce, brown rice cereal, beets, peaches, green beans… all stocked up in the freezer in little ice cube portions.

Random cool pic I took this week:

Hippies. I say that with love. :)

You know I don't really like labels anyway, but it is pretty funny to have witnessed your 25 year move from punk to crunchy. Bwahaha. :D

PS I *LOVE* the pic of Ember in the high chair, what a face.
