Callie is also getting really good at pulling herself up to standing. The first place she did it was at the bottom of the stairs which led to her being able to now crawl up two stairs. She hasn't quite figured out you can't sit back down when you are in the middle of climbing up stairs...which has resulted in a few tumbles!

For Brandon's Spring Break (and to celebrate that he is finished with the Practicum portion of his Master's Degree) we went to St. George, Utah with the Boyle's and Butler's (co-workers of Brandon at Provo Seminary). We enjoyed Snow Canyon, swimming at our beautiful condo, the St. George Temple, Brigham Young's House, and Zion's National Park. Enjoy our cool photo story!

All week Callie has been trying to crawl...she would get on her hands a knees and move a little, then would sit down, then try again and then sit again. I'm so proud of her, she's been learning so much lately! Just last week she learned how to get from laying on her belly to sitting position. Although, now I'm beginning to see the benefits of not having your child crawl! We didn't need a baby gate for the top of our stairs with Taylor but I think I now need to invest in one. Hopefully there will be some garage sales starting up soon!

The other fantastic thing about the place was the food was actually really great, a big difference from Casa Bonita. I think we all stuffed ourselves because it was so delicious!
This picture is for you Logan! He was pretty enamored with this Mayan lady, all the way home he stared at her picture in Nana's camera! As you can tell though, Taylor and Logan were afraid to actually get close to her. If you look closely at the picture the Lady looks pretty annoyed that we stopped her to take a picture! Life must be hard when you have a huge leopard on your headdress!
Here, Logan and Taylor are watching the diving show. As you can tell they were very interested!
What cute Little bowlers!
"Is this my bowling ball?"
Here is Papa helping Logan bowl but after a few rounds, Logan could do the whole thing all by himself! It was pretty funny seeing him waddle to the lane with his big bowling ball!
Taylor tried holding her own ball like her cousin but she just about lost it on her foot (it's understandable when the ball weighs about as much as she does!) She only liked using the bowling stand a few times, then she wanted to bowl like her parents. We still had to help her get enough momentum for the ball to make it to the pins. I did let her try it alone once and the ball stopped right in the middle of the lane! After 3 tries, Brandon hit the ball off the lane into the next lane over(not really his intent!)
Taylor and Logan had a great time, in fact their score was better than mine! Taylor beat me by 20 and Logan beat me by 7! Pretty pathetic when a 2 and 3 year old can beat you in bowling! I guess I won't quit my day job!
This is Logan's big ouchie he got when he fell on the sidewalk 20 minutes after they arrived at our house on Thursday!
Starting on Friday Callie has really wanted to stand on her own. We can put her up to the couch, table or whatever, and she holds on for dear life! So I thought I'd try the walker with her and she did really great, so I decided to try and record the event. What, you don't see is when she hurts her lip because I'm busy trying to record and not catch her when she falls... I guess I won't win the Mother of the year award this year!
Here callie is having great time "driving" all by herself!
Here Papa is holding up the dragon's teeth, because Logan doesn't want the dragon eat him!
