Have you been watching good t.v? Last week ABC called it National Stay at Home week because of all the season primeres. Thankfully becuase of TiVo, we don't have to stay at home to catch all our favorites, but Monday nights that is where you will find this family. We call it "good t.v. night". We are following Chuck, How I met your Mother, CSI: Miami, the Office and Grey's anatomy. Chuck starts tonight, and it might be our favorite...hilarious. What are you watching?

We found the mesa temple today. It is actually only like 15 minutes away. It just kind of appears. We are driving through downtown and then there it is. It is pretty in its own sort of way....not palacial like most temples I have seen. It is more like a washington monument meets mexican ruin. Looking at the picture above it kind of reminds me of what a temple might have looked like in ancient times. It was fun to walk around the grounds, obviously with Kaylie we couldn't go inside. It is wonderful though how even just being on the outside of the temple you can feel the spirit.

Kaylie tried a few new things this weekend...the first was swimming. She loved the pool and we only got out after almost an hour because it was getting late ( It is still 100' at night so we went just before sunset). She learned to splash and we just pulled her around in the water. She was really happy and calm the whole time. It looks like we are going to have a fish for a daughter.
The second new thing was real food...and when I say real I mean rice cereal. Really how appietizing could this be? The first experience you can see on her face in the first pict. She was concerned to say the least about what was happening. The second time around we got a much better response, though I can't say much more of it actually eaten. We thought for sure Kaylie would be much more of an eating champ... She has been to this point as far as milk or formula was concerned. She was sitting with us at the dinner table a week ago and when we stopped looking at her for a second, she had a fistful of soft taco and the wrapper and was with true excitement trying to figure out what how she could get it into her mouth. Although that is what she trys to do with everything she gets her hands on ... we thought this for sure was a true sign that she was ready and willing to eat people food. Maybe that is just it...is watered down rice cereal really food. Perhaps we have a gourmet on our hands. Or maybe she just want a little more of what she got a taste of last week...quiero taco bell little kaylie?

THE ENGINEER - Thank's to Amy's dad for spending all day in the sauna like conditions (the truck) to make sure things were packed nice and tight!
Usually rocking chairs have cushions! Wait, they're all packed! Thank's to Amy's mom for helping out and also watching Kaylie so Amy could get things done as well!
Our last walk along the canal!
DO I HAVE TO LEAVE???
Where did all the ducks go? This was a second home for Toby. He loved to chase ducks (he never caught one) and just swim down the middle since it was easier than walking.
Both Amy and I really enjoyed all the time we spent in Lehi and all the friends we made both in our neighborhood and our work. We will both miss those we are leaving behind and all the memories that were made! Thanks to all those we became friends and we hope to stay in touch!!!
