Winter Walk

In an attempt to not repeat this (see above computer dazed laziness), we hiked Adams Canyon today with Aunt Sarah.  It was beautiful.  This nice man let Camden pet and ride his horse "shorse".  We were constantly seeing dogs and bikers along the trail.  We stopped to play in the dirt about mid hike, but eventually did make it to a stream full of wondrous ice creations.  Camden hiked all the way there pretty much by himself.  If he fell and got hurt I would carry him for awhile, but he did a great job.

Fell asleep on the walk down.  Thanks for joining Sarah.

Our computer broke (again) and I'm just not in the mood to get it fixed.  So, we'll probably be MIA for awhile.

much love.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE these two together?

Our ward party Saturday night had a cowboy theme.
B was dancing up a storm like always.

Cam warmed up to it after an hour or two and did some killer chasses.

Day 1

Hard to believe, but it is true.  Camden is officially 2.  On Cam's birthday Chris had most the day off so they hung out at Pineview.  Chris reported that Camden was in his Birthday Suit most of the day.  I worked at the VA all day, then the fam got together at 89 East that evening.  I got Cam this sa-weet trike on KSL for $25 and he LOVED it.  He can't reach the pedals, and can barely reach the floor with his toes, but he loves it just the same.  And he'll grow into it right?

Oh yes, the birthday hats.  My mom's little ballet class wore these for their "Christmas Tree" dance last year in recital, so now they are just hanging around the house and Cam insisted that we all wear one pretty much the whole time we were there.

Birthday hat, blue coat a gift from Grandma C and the trike.  3 in 1.

In Clark's t-shirt that gives him the robey look.

I cut some old pajama pants into shorts to wear when I teach, and when I came home Camden insisted "me too" so here he is with the "skirt" (one thigh leg).  My love.

When Cam walks out of my room in the morning wearing this, what's not to love? 

Through the glass door.

The Frame

What once was this -

After much hard work-

Became this -

Thank you to Pottery Barn for the general idea, The Dickson gals for encouragement and ideas, Georgina for the wood and engineering genius of the frame and time on Memorial Day evening, Mom and Dad for the newspaper, storage space and staple gun, Kels for the jewelry wire cutters, Gug and Jared for the wire cutting, weaving, tying, and holding, Clark for the staple gun mastery, The Weavers for the sandpaper, Chris for errand running, project supervision and sounding board, and Brooke Caldwell Darrohn for the motivation to do a "project".  Wow.  It was about a month in the making, but I love it.

The Goon

The last two years Connie has invited us to her work Lagoon Day.  It has been so fun, especially since we would never be able to pay the outrageous entry fee for us all.  Chris even got off work early enough to come.  Thanks Connie!

Tired?  Excited?  Holding my bus pass. :)

Taking Cam on the rides was hilarious.  He wanted to go on them so bad, but had a hard time waiting in line.  Once he got on, he would pull this face the whole time.  You may start noticing a theme.


Based off these pics would you think he didn't like being on the ride?  I would go to get him out and he would always ask, "Mo Mo Mo" (more)  So waiting in line was difficult as was him understanding that he had to get off, get back in line, to get back on again.

Chris and Cam.

By the end of the day he was SO tired, but wanting to go on rides, so finally we just had to leave the park with a crying/tired child.  We were there from 11:00am till 4:30pm, so we hung in for quite awhile.

Sniff Sniff

Elder Clark Judd Adams Christensen started his missionary journey today.  

We are so proud of him and will miss him.

I hope the letter I sent Tuesday was waiting for him.

Let's get going on these next two years.

Bike for your life

I rode my bike to Robinette's.  Chris bladed.  Cam sat there and enjoyed the scenery.  Need I say more?  It was HARD.  My arms were sweating.  Camden learned (about 3/4 the way up 200 north) how to shift my gears to increase resistance, that caused a problem.  I could hardly get up the hill in the first place!

I kept thinking, "I am going to stop and rest at the end of this block" "I am going to stop and rest when we get to the church", but for the most part we just kept trucking along.  We stopped once to cross 200 North and then we walked up the last leg of the journey, up Oakmont Drive.

We did it.  And we'll probably never do it again, but thank you Robinette's for being a worthy end-goal!  And thanks for letting us hangout with you all night.

4.6 Miles, uphill.  Took us probably about an hour.  We are professionals (NOT).

Oh yeah, how could I forget the ride home?  10:00pm.  Straight downhill.  Very windy.  Raining sometimes.  Camden was OUT.  His head was bobbing all over the place.  It was really sad.  When I got off the bike, everywhere hurt because I was trying to hold Cam's body up with my left arm and hold his head back with my chin and not DIE in the wind.  Bleh.
