Safe Kids Fair

This weekend was the annual Safe Kids Fair. We got to go all together as a family. Mark even got to come. He had a day off and it was amazing. We also met my sister Heidi and her family. Here are a few highlights.

Reptiles! Cougar is holding a very pretty corn snake. They also had a 140 pound Burmese python and a few other scaly critters. Way cool!

The whole reason we went! Batman! We got a quick visit with the Caped Crusader himself! Cougar loved it! You may not be able to tell, but Cougar is wearing a Batman hat and shirt as well as Batman socks and shoes. Batman even signed Cougar's shirt. According to Cougar it was well worth Daddy's standing in line for 45 minutes.


A giant pickle!


(Cougar kept going back, he's a little obsessed with Star Wars. Darth Vader was supposed to be there, but I guess he was sick. Poor, Darth Vader!)

The boys got to climb inside a helicopter and pretend to drive it! So fun!

Sparky the Fire Dog.

Overall, it was a fun day, though it did get crazier and crazier. It was just so enjoyable to be together.

Problem Solver

As Cougar and I read our scriptures this morning we talked about the Tree of Life from Lehi's vision. We talked about how eating the fruit brought joy. How the people in the great and spacious building were wicked and unhappy. Cougar had a question. "Why don't they just throw the fruit to the people in the building? Then everyone can be happy!"

Samuel the Lamanite

For family night tonight we read the story of Samuel the Lamanite. Then Cougar got to dress up and "cry repentance" to us while standing on the cabinet behind our couch. Mark and I yelled an him to get out of our city. Then we shot at him with Nerf guns. It was lots of fun.
