Bouldering anyone?

Alex and I went to Planet Granite on a rainy Sunday to try and burn some energy. Needless to say, we had a great time.

She had only made it about a third of the way up the wall until the last climb of the afternoon when Will (the guy next to her) said he'd race her to the top... she made it all the way that time!

Go Fly a Kite!

Every so often, when your 3 or 5 year old (yypothetical situation, of course) comes to you with another in a long string of silly requests, you really want to tell them to "go fly a kite!" [Where in the world does that phrase come from anyways?]

Well, yesterday that is just what we did. I had a wonderful day, first with Reese in the morning running errands in the city. We went to get a haircut, and she cutely bopped along holding my hand as we walked down the sidewalk. The line at the haircut place was daunting, but the very kind woman who gave Reese a lollipop took care of any cares she might have had. After the haircut, we then stopped at bought mommy some flowers and took them home.
This is the face of happiness...

In the afternoon, Alex and I went for a (way too long, thanks accident on 880) drive in the Targa. After a few failed attempts at picking up some new parts for the car, we ultimately ended up on Marina Green to... fly a kite! Who knew that such a simple act could be so much fun. Alex enjoyed it too.

On top of the world...

Thanks to Lane, Honey, and Papa we enjoyed a full day at Deer Valley today. We skied with Mackenzie, and found our way around most of the mountain. It was an amazing way to end the week (and 7 days on the slopes!)
