I love to see watch the face expression of visiting friends or family when it’s the first time they’ve been to Grand Central Terminal. It’s a lot of ooing and aahing, and of course picture taking. But I can understand, it’s pretty impressive and there’s a lot of history. Here’s a picture of my friend Carla and Kate during their visit. It’s always hard for pictures to capture the beauty.
I’m running the St. George Marathon! Crap! What was I thinking?
I should of blogged about this yesterday, but I just read the message that my friend Amy Purdy was on the TV show “Entertainment Tonight/The Insider” on 5/7. Amy co-founded Adaptive Action Sport, which is a non-profit organization that promotes “action sport” opportunities for individuals with permanent physical disabilities (snowboarding, skateboarding, skiing, wakeboarding). Amy is a double amputee, and it hasn’t stopped her from doing what she loves. She kicks butt at snowboarding and wakeboarding and puts others to shame. And not only that she is a model and actress. Go Amy! Visit Adaptive Action Sport to find out how you can help promote a good cause.
I am eagerly waiting to see if I made it into the St. George Marathon. Lottery results are suppose to be released today, but of course they are experiencing problems. And the wait goes on.
It’s up! You can now order Mutze hats online. Check it out and spread the word.
I think Mango Ink makes really darling baby announcements. You send them the pictures and words and they personalize it for you. I like to think of their baby announcements as holiday pictures cards that you can order at your local 1-hour photo store, but MUCH cuter, unique and with a huge design element.
If Lucas was a girl, I would get his picture taken in this cute diaper swim cover crawling on the beach.
Lucas has had a few milestones this week. We get so excited when he does something new– well, because it just doesn’t happen so often. When Stella was a baby, she was doing stuff new all the time and was walking by the time she was 9.5 months. So, we just thought it was normal and didn’t really get excited. Now, Lucas is about 10.5 months and he finally took his first crawling steps. I was freaking out with excitement! He has been doing the commando crawling for a few month but not up on all fours crawling. And another milestone is that he said “hot” today. He was just copying what his Mama said. Another freak out session. I had to make sure he said it a few times just to make sure it WAS the word “hot”. We are very proud of our little boy. Here is a picture of him standing in his crib–he got up all by himself. Go Luke!

Check out PBS 4-hour special on “The Mormons”. Two-hours of it airs tonight and the rest airs tomorrow night. It’s a documentary that explores the history and current reality of the Mormons. I’m hoping it portrays Mormons in a good light and clarifies alot of misunderstood hearsay.
