Snowbird Trip and Summer Fun

The first weekend in August we went up the Snowbird resort with Mark's family. It was a lot of fun. We went on the Alpine Slide (Mark fell out of Alpine Slide and got so battle wounds), went on the zipline, rode the mechanical bull, went up the mountain in a tram, and the kids got to play with Grandma. We also did family pictures which was especially great for us because I don't have a new family picture since Beck was born. Thanks to Mark's mom for watching both kids so Mark and I could go enjoy the activities.

The whole Huntsman family.

The giant slide that the kids loved going on.

Also, since things have slowed down a little bit at work, Mark has got to spend lots of time with Henley. He said he is trying to steal her away from me. That will never happen she will always like me the best. Anyway, they have gone up in the mountains with the dogs, gone fishing, fed the ducks and built a fort. Mark even took her to Claire's (girl accessory store) when she stopped wearing Pull-Ups to bed. She has asked for her Daddy a couple of days when Mark has been at work, so she must really like both of us.

Henley wanted to play fetch in the backyard the other day. So we would throw something and she would pretend to be a dog and go fetch it. She ended up running right into the fence and biting her lip.
This was what I came home to last night. They were watching Alvin and the Chipmunks with popcorn in their "tent" as Henley called it.
Plus, we are so lucky because this is the other adorable face we get to look at everyday. Beck is now two months old. He is starting to make cute noises and he smiles and laughs all the time. He really loves Henley and tries to look for her whenever he hears her voice. He is the sweetest little baby and happy for the most part. He is sleeping good at night which helps keep me sane. All in all we couldn't be happier.

Gone Fishing

Last Friday I went shopping in Park City with my sister. I took Beck but left Henley home with Mark. They spent to whole day together and had a lot of fun. He told me later that he thought it was unfair to leave her with him without doing her hair and making it look cute before I left. He really doesn't like when her hair is not done or when she has stuff on her face. The next morning Mark wanted to take Henley fishing on the boat, so they went fishing. Henley loves fishing with Dad especially since he bought her her very own fishing rod. They did not catch any fish although Henley told me that they did, but I think they had plenty of fun.

Ready for the day

The real reason Henley loves fishing is the snacks. Swedish fish and sunflower seeds which she tries to eat but just spits everywhere (Mark got a video of that).

They did not bring towels but still decided to get completely soaked.
So glad they had so much fun.
