Now that we live in Orem . . .

We've been trying to do fun things. The first month or so we were up here and it was still warm weather we tried to to a bunch of fun things outdoors.

1. We went on a walk at Vivian Park up in Provo Canyon. Mairead loved the water (especially throwing rocks into it) and saying "Hi!" to everyone who passed by.

2. We went down around Utah Lake three times. The first time we just went on a walk and drive, but while we were driving along we noticed a little beach-y part where you could go down and play in the water. We returned there twice and Mairead LOVED it! She didn't mind that the water was a bit cold and that it was windy. In fact, we had to force her to leave the water even when her lips were turning blue from the cold. All this from the girl who screamed during baths for the first 6 months of her life. :)





This girl LOVES water!


3. We went to the Utah State Fair. We thought it would be a bit more exciting than it was, but it was fun. Mairead liked seeing the animals (although there were less than I remember in years past), but her all time favorite thing was the carousel. We decided we would let her go on one of the rides and as soon as she saw the carousel she let us know that she wanted to go on it. She was a little unsure for the first time around, but after that she loved it. She cried when the ride was over and it was time to get off, which was cute and sad at the same time.




4. We went to the museum at Thanksgiving Point during $2 Tuesdays and had a great time. Mairead likes dinosaurs and really enjoyed running around and seeing everything. It was fun.

The really cute picture I got was super blurry so here's a sub-par one with Ked making a silly face.
