Saturday we went to Chalk the Block at the Riverwoods. It's cool, they get a bunch of street/chalk artists to come and they each create a masterpiece in the space of a parking stall. It's amazing the talent people have. They also have chalk out for kids to draw their own art all over the sidewalk, and they even had a chalk bus to write on.
Sunday evening we went to a park here in Provo and went on a lovely walk. Sunday walks are my favorite, because there's never any hurry! No homework to get back to, no laundry or housework, no work or classes for Ben, just a beautiful Sunday to mozy on for as long as we like (well...sort of...depending on kids :)) and appreciate the beautiful creations around us.
Ellie's favorite thing EVER is to run free! This picture is the epitome of Ellie right now. Look at those feet go!
My snuggle bug (I never thought I'd say that about Ellie! If you know her, you know why!)
Ellie liked reading the sign.
She just HAD to show Aiden, so she pulled him closer, pointed to the sign and said "Look!!"
She really wanted to push him all by herself (and did for a good while).
Love that sweet little face!
Making a scrunchy face at something
Again, showing Aiden something. Her beloved yellow leaf. "Look!"
Lest you think Ellie is serenely enjoying nature...in reality she's throwing a fit! It made for such a cute photo though, am I terrible? I also took a picture of Aiden the other day when he was crying with all his might, I couldn't resist documenting his cute mad face!
Maybe this photo should go on a list of "You Might be a Bad Mom When....."

After our walk we headed down to Springville to visit Ben's grandma and grandpa's (fondly known as GG and G-pa) for a bit then headed home for nap time(for Aiden), dinner, and we made cookies. In case anyone needs a new good cookie recipe, these are delicious!
I also have to put up a few pictures from our last trip to GG's, they have this amazing deck that looks out on the valley. They can see all the way from Spanish Fork up to Provo. With the west-facing view that looks straight out to the lake and the mountains, it's a BEAUTIFUL place to be right around sunset.
And a few random photos from the last few weeks
Ellie watches Ben get ready for school each morning, so one day she decided she better get ready; backpack, keys in hand, motorcycle helmet and all!
