Still in Salt Lake

We haven't been doing a whole lot this past week. The cold, cold temps came back. The power was off for 3 days from 8:00 to 5:00 all day. We survived with our generators. We have 2 Honda 2000 generators that we use with a cord (called a parallel port) that runs between them for more power. This week the power is supposed to be off every day between 1:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon. Jeeze, this is getting ridiculous. The camphost saw Rod filling up the generators with the gas can so he took the empty gas can and filled it up for us. Now, that was a nice gesture.


We haven't been able to bbq out much since we've been here either, it's just too cold. It does get kinda crowded with everybody inside too. I'm so glad I bought the DVD player for the kids. At least it keeps them busy in the other room. LOL


Saturday we went to watch Ashton's soccer game. I was really looking forward to that. After spending many, many cold days watching his mother play I couldn't wait to see if he got any of her talent. Time will tell. Five year olds playing soccer is hilarious. It's more like a rugby scrum with everybody fighting over the ball until somebody breaks free and tries to run the ball down the field and hopefully they will score in the other team's goal and not their own. I tried to upload a video with no luck. I'll try again later. At the end of the game there are always rewards for everybody, win or lose (even Reilly).


It's hard work being a spectator in the cold...


The kids spent the day with us after the game and then stayed the night. They love having a sleepover here. Mama and Daddy came to pick them up on Sunday and they went to their other grandparent's house for dinner. We'll see them again on Tuesday when they come over. Todd is going to make dinner for us. How nice is that??

It's so hard to dress yourself when you're only 3 but you just gotta try...




So, that's what's been going on here. Not a whole lot. We'll probably do more of the same for this week too.

I know what you mean about the kids not having anything to do in a small space. We have had ours several times and we are so thankful that we had good weather when we had them.

Enjoy those babies. They are so cute. I agree, little kids playing soccer is too funny. I love it. Our grandkids play indoor soccer...it is fast paced, but at least it is climate controlled. LOL

Hugs to you both,
Dortha
