Thanksgiving Point September 6, 2010

Filed under: Lindsey,Westin — elwstew @ 9:27 pm

My sister-law Jenn called me and let me know that Thanksgiving Point was having their last $2 Tuesday so be decided to go. We get there and the line is huge. It wrapped around the whole side of the building but since we were there we decided to stay. The line moved pretty fast.

Here we are standing in line

Here are we once we got inside the building.

And finally in the museum.

Emmy being so cute.

Jenn tried to get a picture of Westin and I but he is still mad about not get to hold the camera. The water and sand areas were our favorite places.


Spanish Fork North Park August 30, 2010

Spanish Fork just open a new park just east of Macey’s. They had their grand opening on Saturday. They had free hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, pony rides, merry-go-round, and bounce-houses. Westin had a blast. Besides all of that, the playground was so nice and big kid/little kid friendly. They also have a splash pad at this park. YEAH! Westin loves water so we spent most of our time there.

We waited in line for about 45 minutes to get a 1 minute pony ride. This was the only ride we went on. 🙂 All of the other lines were so long. Westin loved it so that is all that matters.


Bad Words August 29, 2010

Today we went to Ed’s grandmother’s house for the monthly get together. We were waiting to leave until his uncle Rich and Aunt Dallas got there. Westin was practicing saying “Rich” over and over again waiting for them to come.  Westin was really good at saying Rich, but after visiting for a while after they got there we decided we had better get Westin home in time for bedtime.  As we were getting ready to leave we told Westin to say by to Rich and he turned and waved and said, “Bye *itch.”  Just like he says “Borry” instead of “Sorry” he said Rich’s name a bit wrong as well. It was so funny. It was an accident, Rich, he didn’t mean it.

The cutest thing Westin said today was  “I’m borry(sorry) Joshsh”

Westin knows how to get out of his crib and it has been a crazy few weeks. He wakes up at 5am and comes into our room and we have to try and get him back to sleep. We finally took his mattress out of the crib and put it on the floor. Even though it is 5 inches high he falls out of it. Now that he can open doors we put a child proof lock on the inside of his door, took all his toys out of his room and locked his closet. He just stays in his room until it is time to wake up. He plays with the door stops and usually falls asleep by one of them and then I go and move him back to his bed when I go up to bed. During his nap the other day he slept for 3 1/2 hours so halfway through I went to check on hm and this is what I found.


Date Night August 23, 2010

Filed under: Crew — elwstew @ 10:21 pm

On Saturday Ed and I wanted to go out but did not have a babysitter so we decided to take Westin on a date. We hoped that he would take a nap and then we could leave but since that did not happen we decided to start the date before it got to late. Westin loves ducks and love to feed them so we decided to start by going and feeding duck at Valtek or what used to be Valtek in Springville. On our way there Westin fell asleep with bread in his hand.

Once he woke up we feed the ducks.

We had to drag him back to the car so we could go to the Bean Museum. If you have not been there you need to go kids love it and it is FREE.  Once we told Westin we were going to see “a lion king”  (what he calls all lions and lion pictures now days) he got into his seat.

Of course we had to watch the video about animals while we were there. I think that we could go once a week and Westin would not get sick of it.

I do not have pictures of our last activity sorry but we went and saw How to Train your Dragon at the dollar movies. He loved it. The whole way home he was breathing fire on us.  It was such a fun day and are glad we decided to go on a family date.


Ed’s Hockey Game August 22, 2010

This is Westin at Ed’s game cheering him on. It was so cute. He could find Ed on the ice I was so impressed.

These are pictures for Ed’s hockey games this summer. It was fun to watch. He has not played hockey since the first year we were married. His team won the championship for the summer league. He start the Fall league soon.
