11 months and busy

Our little froggie turned 11 months old.  She wants to walk but is scared.  She has taken a couple of steps, but just won't do it without someones finger to hold.  She has weaned herself in the last 1 1/2 weeks (which is great for me) and since has gained over a pound.  I guess I just didn't have enough for her.  Now she is a happy, starting to get rolly baby.  And she smiles at everyone, but don't touch her.  She will glare at you or cry.

The other day it was warm and I sent the hippo and the monkey out into the backyard to play.  Neither of them could find matching shoes, so they improvised.  I guess I should be happy that they are problem solvers.... but I couldn't not take a picture. 

We went to the Franklinville, NY maple festival this last weekend.  A little disappointed by it.  It was basically a fair crammed into a very small area.  But the kids were excited by the parade and the petting zoo.  I was amazed by the fact that they make maple soda, and maple cotton candy.  It smelt so good there, and the pure maple syrup was cheap.  Too bad we're moving.

And of course my kids find a playground and wanted to stay there the rest of the day.

Eric and I just celebrated our 6th anniversary.  We figured that in the last 6 years we have lived in 4 states, two of which we moved back to (UT, ID, AZ, ID, UT, NY).  Between the two of us we have earned 3 college degrees and 3 certificates.  And we had 3 beautiful children.  After all that accomplishment, we decided to do something fun.  We went to a restaurant that we had never heard of before but has been featured in Guy Fieri's (the food network) show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-G2zFpveYeo )  Grover's bar and grill.

We had the famous Bruiser burger which is the most delicious hamburger I have ever had and a bowl of their famous cheeseburger soup.  They were so good.  We shared both and came out completely full.   Now just to learn how to make it on our own.  Another thing about this burger is that even Eric couldn't fit the burger into his mouth.  It was that big, but oh so good!

On a side note, two weeks then we move back to Brigham City for about 3 weeks, then on to Tulsa, Oklahoma for who knows how long.  We are excited, just going through the stress of moving.  I can't believe how fast time has gone.  More pics to come soon for graduation!
