I've been brainstorming to come up with some ideas for fun stuff we can do during our Girls Week and Jaci had some requests too.
    Here are a few ideas for you to contemplate:
Shopping at Mills Mall or The Galleria
Six Flags (Friday night Fright Night)
flea market/swap meet
Forest Park--pretty much everything is free!
  • Jewel Box
  • Boathouse
  • Zoo
  • Art Museum
  • Science Center

I'm trying to see if I can track down some of those kennel things for babies. I figured if I could borrow from some friends it would be easier than everyone bringing their own. I'm also working on borrowing car-seats and strollers. I think I might be able to find a couple, but there has recently been a rash of new babies in the ward, so everything might be in use. Jaci called the airline and they told her that car seats & strollers don't count as "extra luggage" or as a carry on.

The main issue I'm having is I called Enterprise to see what vehicles they have that can accomodate 9 of us--and they either have a 7-passenger tahoe or a huge 15 passenger van(expensive). SO, here is my really, big question: Do we rent a Tahoe and drive two cars everywhere we go (double fuel costs)? Or do we rally this bad boy:
You know I want to relive my glory days at Navajo Trails of driving a 15 packer loaded with kids and pulling a boat, but it's just sooo un-sexy. We'd look like pligs, piling out with six "sisters" and 3 babies, especially if Tye decided to come along. Ewwww.

Your thoughts?

Wiener Man

Everybody sing along- I know the wiener man, he owns a Sure the beach was fun, but seeing the wienermobile on the way-totally awesome. These pictures were taken at Virginia Beach (Only a short 100 miles from our apt. for any of you beach craving family members that need to be inticed to make a visit) :) Whit thought that it was pretty cool, especially when he started sucking on his toes afterward and they were nice and salty.

Whits typical day

Yeah, whit can finally crawl. He has been scooting around for a couple weeks, but now he actually can coordinate his hands and knees together. Wow, he is so much happier now that he can go on his own. Hopefully it will last a little while before he wants to walk. We couldn't tell if that was a happy or a sad sound but he had a big smile on his face. He was just excited to get his blanket since it was bedtime..

It is so funny, I put him in his room and go to fill the tub up and as soon as I turn the water on he races in so fast because he loves the tub! Also the other day when Jake got home Whit was crawling down the hall so fast making that same noise because he was so happy to see his Dad. He just loves him!
