You know those beads that link together? Well we have about 40 of them in the nursery at school. One of our favorite things to do is squeeze them and have them suck onto your face. Today we were able to get 6 on my face. New record.

Black Friday, what a night! It is really still Thursday and I am almost done with a lot of my Black Friday shopping. Most people don't like the sales starting on Thursday night, I love it! I can get regular sleep, and am not out when it is the most freezing.
For the past few years I've been going to Park City with my mom and little sister. It's become a beloved tradition.
The first store of the night was Old Navy. I got jeans, slippers, and a ring for $14.07. Thank you Black Friday, thank you.
I'm not a big souvenir person. I rarely buy a snow globe, t shirt, key chain, or stuffed animal. Today I was cleaning out my car and found this snow globe. Last month while I was student teaching in a fifth grade class a little girl went to New York and brought me back a snow globe. I had only known her for maybe 5 days and she bought me a little gift.
This is what I love about teaching. You mean the world to these kids.

I need to learn how to create photo collages for effectively for moments like this. The only way I know how takes SO MUCH TIME!
So I'll give a quick run through of my summer.
Hannah had her birthday.
Then a few days later we went camping. I have no good pictures of the camping trip. They were all taken by Sam. I have yet to even see them!
For the Fourth of July I went to Moab with my mom and two of my nephews to watch my brother-in-law do the firework show. It was pretty fun, we went to the National Park, but didn't have time to hike to Delicate Arch. I have lived in Utah my whole life and still have not really been to Delicate Arch! One of these days...
I spent a lot of my summer visiting Trae. One trip I brought some faux glasses for us to play with. He looked so adorable!
We finally returned to our traditional Bear Lake trip. Though it was drastically interrupted when my mom got a KIDNEY STONE! Luckily my sister and her family was coming up the next day, so my brother-in-law took my mom home and my sister, her two younger boys, and I stayed and played for a little while. We were not good about taking pictures.
Yesterday I went to the Riverwoods to see their Chalk the Walk event. They had tons of artists making big chalk murals in the parking lot and a percent of the precedes went to a school for autistic children. It was pretty cool. There was even an owl one! I would like to point out, I hopped on this trend before it was even a trend.
We also went to my parents' new house yesterday to check on the progress.

When they got there the first thing my little Trae did was look at me and put his arms right up for a hug. Isn't he adorable?! I love him and he was so excited to see me! He's finally comfortable with me all the time. FINALLY!!!
We went to see the animals.

First day of my spring break! But all my friends have school or are lame so I had to do something on my own. So I took my little nephews to the zoo. We had a BLAST!
Of course, there are no pictures of me because I was the one in charge of the camera. It was pretty crowded, but some of the coolest things happened while we were there. First, there were a couple babies. Who doesn't love baby animals? Especially little monkey ones that are no bigger than a couple inches.
Next, I'm so mad I didn't get a picture of this, but one of the giraffes bent down and was probably 3 feet from our faces! I was so fascinated that I forgot all about the camera that was IN MY HAND. Ugh, silly me. It was incredible, though. The two boys LOVED it.
I got the ride the carousel for the first time. I took Brock on it, Happy Birthday! He was so cute!
Tallon was "too cool" to ride it, so it was just me and the birthday boy.
After the carousel we went to find the Ape Exhibit. It was pretty cool, nothing too exciting going on. Then we did the traditional measuring up.
We walked around the corner to a viewing area of orangutans that isn't really used much, it is kind of hidden away. And saw this:
We rode the train and saw the portals to pop your heads up through. The boys needed to get in there.
When we left there was a goose just hanging out in the parking lot. The last animal to say goodbye to. He scared the boys when he honked and ran away flapping until he lifted for flight.
I woke up totally bummed that I had a whole week of free time and no plans. I really wanted to get away and try to forget about things. So I called my second mom Nani. She currently lives in Hawaii. I booked a flight.
Flew to Hawaii. No big deal. Didn't even have a ticket 24 hours earlier. Nani was so cute to have a lei for me. I love her so much!
Days Four to Nine:
Hung out in Hawaii. I didn't take very many pictures, but I did take some.
What a busy two weeks I have had!
