This week team Boo made the 17 hour trek (factoring in the extra 5 hours in the car for blizzard delays ;) to park city,UT This photo depicts my very sweet and eager Elyott before riding to the top of the hill only to have her teeny 41 pond body catapulted off her tube at the first bump in the track. In retrospect there is nothing sadder than seeing a little kid get their glasses knocked off...and that is why I am grateful my tube was going too fast down the hill so she couldn't hear me accidentally still laughing. Maybe it was the "Utah" (aka. "The Uterus" ) confusing my maternal instincts?? Whatevs, when all was said and done no children were phisically (or emotionally) scarred during the whole tubing experience ;) Cross your fingers the drive home will welcome bluer skies!!! Back to the AZ (aka "the armpit") grind....
**UPDATE: the ride home involved sitting next to a dirty dog in the back seat, my 12 year old brother with a cold and both my kids barfing and diarrhea-ing the whole way home. But I guess it always could have been worse (no it couldn't).
....ahh making memories.

every time we go tubing there i watch all the little kids and look forward to taking my own someday. it just seems like the perfect activity for little ones... so fun to watch them smile and laugh as they fly down the hill. love your blog and i feel happy when i leave it!

Your blog makes me laugh, without fail! And really AZ isn't really an armpit... if you left you'd probably want to go back. I do. But then again, I live in the real armpit of the US. But we still manage to have fun. Oh and congrats on the new baby, he's a keeper!

Drive carefully. It is not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.............................................

Hilarious.....I think that has to be one of those things that all kids have to go through...a right of passage....

and oh how I miss AZ....didn't think I would...till I moved to NJ.....

I love a mom that can accidentally laugh when her kid flies through the air. But only because you're also the kind of mom that lets her kid look as adorable as this while doing it.

don't come back to AZ. Ew. It is already too hot for me here. Thankfully, the orange blossoms wafting through the air distract me from the heat. For now.

Oh the time has come!

I would love to go tubing, but the only places we have to do it involves paying like $30.

Which is, you know, crap.
