Death by Halogen Lamp

While Carol and I were updating the blog, this poor fly flew into the room and was drawn toward the halogen lamp next to the couch.  One moment later, we saw smoke rising from the lamp and the fly had met its end.  Goodbye fly.

We are still alive.

So much has happened since we last posted.  We did make it to Utah.  Yes it was a long drive and yes I would do it again!   The highlight of our trip was stopping in Minnesota and staying with the Teeples.  They were so gracious and we had such a great time!!!!!  

Since coming to Utah we have been so busy.  Mike worked and studied for the Utah BAR while I tried unsuccessfully to unpack and keep the kids happy and busy.  

Mike did take the bar and so today we went hiking at donut falls and then we stayed after the kids swimming lessons to play.  We have had such a fun day.  The kids loved being outdoors.  Max did not want to stay in the back pack we borrowed he wanted to run with the girls.  We did let him down and he was so happy to be free to run and pick up the rocks.  I was amazed at how well he kept up.  

On our way to swimming lessons today we said to Ashley look at the fire truck (which was right out her window, big and yellow, couldn't miss it) and she said exasperated, "but I can't see it"  to which we all laughed.  

Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.
