As some (if not most) of you might know, Daddy has accepted a job in Utah. He is very happy at his new job, but we miss him and he misses us. Hopefully we will sell our house soon so that we can be together. We had the opportunity to go to Utah to visit the cousins that Daddy is staying with and attend an employee appreciation picnic.

Visiting with the cousins at the park.
 Jumping on the trampoline.

My cousin is looking to build and they wanted to show us the model of home they were looking at. As they were showing us around, we saw this little beauty. I was so excited, that when I saw it, I shouted "Up!" That's right folks, it's modeled after the house in the movie Up, complete with an iron rooster on top of the house. We drove past it on the side and it had a cute directional sign that had lots of different places on it in the Disney theme parks. To give an example, Tomorrowland, and I can't remember the rest.

This was at the employee appreciation picnic.

They had giant baseball decorated sugar cookies, that were amazing!

 Thing 2 was totally ready to eat his cookie.

The picnic was hosted at the Salt Lake Bees Stadium where we also got to watch a minor league baseball game! I have never been to a minor or major league game. Thing 1 and I were super excited!

Thing 2 was okay with it, he was tired more than anything. When we go to the next game, we will find him a babysitter so he can stay home and sleep. 

Daddy was sure happy to have us with him, and he tickled Thing 2 to no end.

I love it when my boys randomly hug each other. It's becoming a once a day thing. Usually Thing 2 instigates it because when Thing 1 normally tries, Thing 2 yells at him and runs away.

The game ended with fireworks and the boys loved them.

I know it's been over a month, but I have lots of posts to go up, because I've been gone so much. But here's a start, this happened one week ago.

Thing 2 likes to climb. He kinda paid the price last week for doing so. He was halfway on the kitchen table and his legs were on the arm of the chair when Im not sure what happened, whether he slipped or was trying to get down, I don't know. Thing 1 claims he was trying to clear me lunch plate. The next thing I knew, he was crying on the ground with blood in his mouth. So I take him over to the sink and was rinsing his mouth out with cold water, thinking that he had only bitten his tongue. After a few rinsings, the blood hadn't slowed. After a quick examination I see a little blood on his chin and come to find that he hadn't bitten his tongue, his top left tooth had gone through his bottom lip! Having been to my ultimate stress level already I started crying. I called Daddy and asked if I should go to the E.R. Or just to Community Care. He said the latter would work fine. I called my Mother-in-law so she might be able to watch Thing 1 and thankfully she came immediately. Thing 1 was pretty upset as well. So here are the pictures.

The numbing agent on Thing 2's chin. They were both pretty happy and having fun at this point. Thing 2 is so tough! He had stopped crying within 5 minutes of everything happening.

Above is the actual cut. Thing 2 was playing with his lip because it was numb. Below is the actual procedure. Thankfully a nurse was able to hold Thing 2's head while I just held his hand and was able to take pictures for Daddy. 

This is actually after the suture. No it's not bad.
