Fun Family Day

Steve's schedule has been really crazy lately. He is still working 7 days on, 7 off. The 7 on are 10 hour shifts, and he is now on the evening/night shift. On top of that, he is in school. On his on weeks, we don't see him much. We have been doing our best to maximize the time we do have with him! We have been spending a lot of time playing in Salt Lake the last few weeks. 

On the 20th we decided to do something fun for Miss E. We headed down really early so Steve could go to his morning class. While he was at class the girls and I went to Whole Foods...I SO wish we had one of these in Ogden!!! After his class got out, we went to the Discovery Museum at the Gateway.
 E loved it! She was totally in her element. E loves things that are just her size and this place did not disappoint. Her favorite things were the play house, the grocery store, and the water table.
 Sis had a great time, obviously! She spent most of her time sleeping in her seat and eating in a quiet corner.
 Holy play food! Miss E was going ballistic in here. She was cracking us up making all kinds of "sandwich" concoctions: ketchup, mustard, eggs, fish, and chocolate syrup.
 This was the funniest thing. Steve would build wooden houses on this platform, then E would turn on the platform which simulated an earthquake. She would scream and scream!!!

 After the museum we ate lunch at the food court and then rode TRAX to Temple Square. Miss E loves trains so that was probably a highlight of her day.

This was such a great day and I really hope that these are the times Miss E and Sis will remember, rather than daddy being gone so much!!! We love these girls so much and want them to have all of the great opportunities and memories we can give them!
