Girls Night Out

So, the high school here put on the play " Beauty and the Beast" and the girls were very excited about it. Alma saw half of it with her kindergarten class and she just had to see the rest. So of course with her talking about it nonstop, Saralyn became super excited too. I invited Daddy and Easton, but Daddy thought we would have more fun without the wiggly little guy. :) So we made it a girls night out and had a really fun time together. Thanks for the fun time girls!
Saralyn wasn't feeling well, as you can kind of tell from this picture. But she didn't let that stop her from having a good time.

They had some pretty cool costumes. Of course the girls' favorite was Belle's fancy dress.

Look Mom, no training wheels!

Ever since the first few days of warmth where the snow was starting to melt Alma has been wanting to get outside and try to learn to ride her bike without training wheels. We have tried it a few times in the past, but she was nervous and not quite ready. But this time, she was determined. So, I strapped Easton on by back, Saralyn on her tricycle, and off we went. I ran alongside her back and forth down the sidewalk the first day, and she did really well, but still didn't want me to let go. The next day she was a little more brave and I could let go a little here and there and by the end of the day, she was pretty stable on her own, I only had to hold on to help her get started. She was so cute because when she was a little tipsy or scared she would tell herself "I can do this, I can do this..." Positive self talk can do wonders! :) After that it snowed again and was too cold to go out, beside the fact that her bike was covered in ice because we didn't put it away. (oops) So when it did warm up again, we were out again. This time she wanted to try getting started by herself. This time there were a few tears of frustration, but I was very proud of her because she didn't quit. It didn't take her long before she was doing it all by herself. Here is a video of the great accomplishment! I had to put on two because I don't know how to combine them into one video yet.

Trip to Jackson Hole

These pictures are from our tri[p to Jackson Hole a few weeks ago. Josh posted these on his "bragg blog" but I thought i'd post them here too for those who haven't seen them yet. It was a long drive, but we all enjoyed the time together. We visited Josh's previous boss and good friend Jim Webb who was so kind to let us stay at his place. It was fun visiting with him. We also walked around the square a bit an went to the visiters center. The next day we took the kids to the National Wildlife Art Museum. The kids really like it. There was a separate area where the kids could color, do a puppet show, and put on animal costumes. Easton took a long nap there too while we were able to enjoy all the artwork. We then drove home and got to see elk near the road on a feed ground in Alpine. It was a very enjoyable trip for all of us.
